    Yes, although maybe half the amount you're spending on flowers They're just going to die anyway. You can get lovely bouquets for £20-ish, or you could just get her a single rose so it's not too over the top? You haven't been going out that long after all.

    Just get a smaller bunch of flowers, otherwise the poor girl will think you want to marry her!

    I'd say that's too much, as the person above me said, don't spend that much on flowers. It's a nice gesture but realistically they will just die. If you're going to spend £40 spend it on something that she can actually keep.

    Its ok sure, but its slightly like you are going for the valentines cliche isnt it? I think she might appreciate something a little more personal and individual to her, more than your sweet and lovely yet generic idea.

    £40 is too much for roses, go with a single rose, I think it's better (and not only because it's cheaper ).

    Find out what her favourite chocolates are - get those.

    Get a fake red rose, they never die :rolleyes:

    Anyway, that's fine, abit OTT with the 40£ roses, unless your rich, she'll appreciate it the same if it was one single rose, anyway its the thought that counts. Maybe just do something, like take her out for nice meal, Vday is no big thing.

    Aawh...I clicked on this topic, thinking it would be something hilarious/outlandish. Instead you picked flowers and chocolate.

    You could give her those, but it shows a lack of originality IMHO. Spend £1.50 on a single red rose and buy her something she'll like and keep...something you can do together. Take her out for dinner. You can get a good meal for £40.

    This :yep:

    I know as a girl I'd much rather receive my favourite perfume, or a cd of a band I like, or a dvd of a film I want to see, because it shows that my boyfriend's thought about what I'd like and made an effort. Much better than "what do guys get girls on Valentine's day? Oh yeah, chocolates and flowers".

    If you must go with chocolate and flowers, try and make sure they're her favourites, and maybe cut back on the flower budget to get a more personal present as well

    i agree with most other people - spend less on the roses because she wont exactly cherish them as a memory, they're roses - and everyone gives and gets them
    pay for a really nice meal with the extra money (after buying a single rose) or do some activity - depends whether shes really active or more relaxed, but im sure you could fin something more fun

    flowers They're just going to die anyway.
    YESS!
    diverting from the topic:
    why cant everyone know that! spending soo much on flowers they die after a while! something meaningful is worth so much more than generic pointless flowers

    ok op continue
