Flowers are so damn overpriced in February. Probably a 500% profit margin, easy, and they die within weeks.
So painful to buy flowers but I just punch myself in the balls and buy them anyways
Hbu you guys?

I agree with you that flowery delivery service and flowers in a vase are way overpriced and not worth it. Plus for some reason to me they seem less romantic. When it comes to flowers I absolutely love Lilies or Tulips wrapped in paper and tied with a simple brown string like the do for you at Whole Foods for $20-$30. And I prefer them just because. Not because you did something wrong or its V Day.
Some women though really like to get the big thing delivered at the office to show everyone else up but damn that's $250. You could buy me a silver necklace from Tiffany's for that much and I'd much rather the necklace. I may be an outlier but I don't want a big deal made on Valentine's. I prefer a really nice dinner at home that I make and then some really romantic time. The only down side to that is I don't get as dressed up. I spend extra time doing hair and makeup and wear a sexy outfit. But I'm not going to wear a red dress and 4 inch heels to stay home and cook in them. I don't like to wear shoes in the house.1

I'd never drop that much on flowers. Such a waste of money, especially when you can make the same gesture for like fifteen bucks and an hour of your time.
For example, Trader Joe's sells sustainably grown boquets -- lots of 'em -- and the upper tier cost like $15. Buy those, take an hour of your time to hand deliver them, and you're set. Plus, making that extra effort goes a long way with women.3
