Thinking Outside The Bouquet

Valentine’s Day, whether you love it or hate it, is vastly approaching. So, what do we get our loved ones?
Well, there is always the classic trifecta: a heart-shaped box of assorted Russell Stover chocolates, a teddy bear holding a satin pillow with the words “I love you” printed across, and a dozen red roses.
Okay, time for a little honesty—these Valentine’s Day gifts are sorta kinda the worst. Russell Stover, I’m sorry but I just can’t spend my day biting into every chocolate to determine whether it’s going to be filled with lemon custard or something actually worth my while. And having just gone through my bedroom for a little KonMari Method detox, a teddy bear is completely out of the question right now. Now, while I do appreciate a nice floral arrangement, peonies are more my style over roses, not that it matters anyways because they are going to die within 24 hours.
So, this Valentine’s Day I’m more than happy to share some alternative options that will really blow up your S.O.’s social media feed, while also giving them something to literally feed on.
Feast your eyes on these alternative bouquets that will definitely not die, clutter your home, or leave you questioning how delicious they are.

You can opt for a dozen or half dozen if your valentine isn’t that big of a snacker, and these come in a variety of flavors including original, hot, and teriyaki.

Kudos to you if you’ve made it this far with your New Year’s resolution – now you can stick with it on the biggest chocolate consumption day of the year. Behold Edible Arrangement’s Valentine’s Day bouquet (though if you feel like taking a walk on the wild side there is an option to make those strawberries chocolate covered, just saying).
So, this February 14th, give your valentine something they can really savor.
