    Nobody's ever got me flowers before, everyone seems to think that it's 'too traditional and boring' :cry2:

    The reason I got slightly worried about getting her flowers is that it's seen as 'soppy romance' and 'overly traditional' additionally'plain and tasteless' :/
    I've tried to pick her favourite colors out for the flowers but I don't want to get her an expensive gift (e.g necklace, clothes or whatever else it may be) I just wanted to give her a small gesture to remind her that I'm thinking about her throughout the day and a reminder that I love her.
    I just hope she isn't one of the few that think the idea is silly

    Perfect solution: Why not get her a tiny tree?

    Jade trees are quite cheap, yet pretty, and last forever. Plus there's all these cute stories about them.

    Flowers are always lovely but they also seem like a waste of money - they die and most of them are farmed with underpaid workers.

    Check out the 'Real Flower Jewellery' www.silverflowers.co.uk
    This makes the perfect gift and if my boyfriend found and bought me this, before I found and bought it myself I would think he was the most thoughtful person EVER!

    There is stuff made with real Poppy flowers, forget me nots', roses etc - its all made with real silver and it's not expensive CHEAPER THAN A BUNCH OF FLOWERS!!! Flowers cost 25 - 60 pounds this jewellery costs 20 pounds to 39!
    Check out guys if your looking to impress any lady!

    Never been given flowers before, secretly I would swoon if a guy gave me some daisies (even if he'd just picked 'em from the side of the road) and Bastilles new album

    They are lovely, but you seem to not post about anything else...

    Eh, flowers themselves are alright - I happily live without them :-) However, the value of flowers isn't the actual bunch themselves, but the thought which girlfriends appreciate.

    I've stopped buying flowers for anyone, girls have this annoying habit of getting suspicious when you buy them and think you've done something wrong. Which means they don't get any flowers at all. :huff:

    It would be cute but not as a main present because you can't do much with flowers. Just make sure to check the 'message' of the flowers, some types mean divorce or break up

    My ex gave me roses when I recieved my degree results
    I wasn't expecting them and it was so sweet
    Even though my mum thinks its silly when I get them for her as they just wilt and die. I find it a safe option for occasions or as a random sweet gesture

    Yes! It's really sweet and something guys don't usually think to do. Make sure she's not allergic though, some with hayfever etc can have bad reactions with some flowers for example lillies have really strong pollen!

    As a spontaneous, out-of-the-blue kind of gift, yes, LOVE it. It's just one of those little gestures that lets the girl know you've been thinking of them.

    Apart from that, flowers for anniversaries or valentines or birthdays or any other special occasions are good - BUT I would suggest you couple the flowers with something else. Because flowers die, and as a girl, I'd like to be able to keep things that remind me of those special events.
    stick them in the freezer before they turn ****ty, defrost for special occasions
