Would you rather get flowers or chocolate?

To be precise with your question: I'd rather have flowers. Peonies or hydrangeas, or beautiful roses, in that order. Not a big sweet eater, but chocolate covered ginger is my fave from way back, and I will always enjoy that. So flowers and chocolate covered ginger. If you haven't had it, you're missing out. Need to try it.Happy Valentine's Day!!!
Chocolate is evil … all that weight gain for what?
Score! I'm so glad we haven't forgotten the class rings
I hate flowers. I'll take some jewelry and, luckily, I'm pretty easy to buy for
Neither. We don't celebrate Valentine's Day, since it's a corporate holiday. We celebrate our special anniversaries.
I told my husband if he really felt he had to get me something for Valentine's Day to get me an ice chipper, or a wheelbarrow.
Of course I am also the woman who asked for a dump truck load of dirt for Mother's Day a few years ago.
Not impressed by jewelry -unless it's something vintage and unique, then I don't care if it's real or costume. But I loooove chocolate. I love it reeeaaallll good.
Definitely flowers, and any flowers besides red roses! I worked as a florist some years ago, and I got sick of them! Boring & a cliche'. Especially when there are so many other interesting rose colors and other beautiful, under-appreciated flowers in the world!
I guess chicolate. Really good Dove type chocolate.
I got chocolate and a tattoo for Valentine's day.. hubby is only home one week a month, so we celebrated early. I also got multiple O's, but I get those regardless of the holiday;)
In high school I worked delivering flowers, so I'm speaking from experience. Nothing is a guaranteed panty-melter like roses delivered to a woman at work.
(The really funny deliveries were the "morning after" flowers. I could always tell those because the woman would be blushing and furiously thinking up and excuse to explain to her co-worker why she got a vase of roses out of the blue.)
I'd be happy with one of my fave dinners capped off with some port and teuscher truffles.
I bought my kids books (they are big readers! Going to get them each a goody from the chocolatier down the street and we're making cards together tomorrow. My daughters has a bday this weekend though and I bought her concert tix, her first ever!! Pretty excited for her.
Hey Bruce, you can wear that pearl necklace with a frock from the Kollection.
I'm glad to hear it! That's great news.
rikkitikkitavi – Are you bitter??
Flowers – Hydrangeas – they are my favorite, and rarely do I receive (or want) flowers, so that is what makes receiving them so special.
Either is nice. I like the card best!
I tell my kids for Valentines Day I just want a home made card & lots of good behavior! (From my hubby, I request no card, and lots of naughty behavior!)
Hi Bruce, it sounds like you want a great big pearl necklace.
Neither, dinner and drinks out instead.
I'll take a weekend getaway!
Yes, Bruce! The hits on the site have drastically increased and my warehouse is busy.Everyone needs socks.
I'll take flowers, cause they're not fattening!
@Susan, sounds wonderful and enjoy your weekend! I can't wait for Friday. I bought my son the Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 movie and it came with a lunch box. Plus I get to volunteer in his classroom that day too! He's so excited!
Rob, it makes me proud that you keep plugging the sock line. Have you seen an increase in business?
Oh Rob…..talk to Brody or Scott.
Flowers AND candy (See's chocolates pretty please) make me very happy on Valentine's Day! I know it's a holiday created by the greeting card industry, but I love it! My mom always had a Valentine party for us when we were kids & I've carried on the tradition with my little family. In fact, my daughter has been dressing in Valentine outfits since February 1st!
I've only given pearl earrings.
Mimosas, baby. Flowers die, I don't like sweets, jewelry annoys, but ply me with freshly squeezed OJ and champagne, and I'll be your valentina.
There you go, buddy! You were disappointing me there for a sec.
Yes! Told you I learned all my best moves from my dad!
Scott, I've had 3 wives. Believe it or not, I know what a pearl necklace is! It doesn't come from the jewelry store!
Would rather get laid.
But Royce chocolates would be nice.
Bruce, I don't think that's what Brody meant.
I'll take flowers UNLESS you're going to get me some Vosges Chocolates — and then don't forget the champagne!
@susan, I want to be your love!I'm a secret sentimentalist, but I don't buy into holidays, don't care about presents, I hate people thinking about what I'd like with their hard earned money – I'll buy my own stuff, thanks (not a hyper consumer, I also don't need cheap factory made crap done by slave labor).Just be kind to me, love me and ditto.
Patek Phillipe watch
def a really nice piece of jewelry
Hi Brody! Good idea Brody, you cant go wrong with jewelry. I'm buying myself another helicopter this year since I'm separated.
Aw, @Susan, that all sounds so very lovely! Sending you good juju that no one, and I mean NO ONE, interrupts your weekend!!
Me? I will take flower-shaped chocolates! But if you must give me real flowers, an iris will do me just fine! 😉
I want a lifetime supply of plastic bags.
