Dh and I are talking about flowers. I HATE getting roses because I feel they are tooooooo over done. He says thwy are the most romantic. I would rather get a flower I like (lily
and orchid) versus the "flower of love". What about you. For Valentines Day, birthday, anniversary or any special occasion, would you rather get roses or your favorite flower?

EDIT:
Dh has given me flowers twice in the nearly 7 years we've been together. The first was crazy daisies, which dd picked out, and I loved them. Last year he ordered me a bouquet because he forgot valentines day. I got them on the 17th and they were gorgeous. He picked mostly lilies for that arrangement but had the florist add hydrangeas also. While I would love anything he got me, I would PREFER my favorite flower over roses. They are too cliche and common. And they die too fast! Imo.

My husband always gets my favorite flower when he gets them for me!!! A star gazer lily and they usually come with some light pink roses to fill it in... I love it and it makes me feel special that he remembers what my favorite flower is!

I hate getting flowers, you have one of three choices with flowers, 1) they are dead and you try to keep something dead pretty, 2) They are alive, but again I hate the way they smell so I don't want that smell in my home all the time, or 3) They are fake and just take up room and collect dust.

So I don't get flowers I get jewlry :)

I think it is the thought that counts. Honestly you should just be happy that he remembers to get you flowers at all, I can't even count how many times I read a post saying that it was a special occaision, and there was nothing special about it, not even a singel flower.

What way to show love than with something that shrivels up and dies... Idk. Im not a huge fan of flowers as a romantic guesture (sp?).

If they are for you, then he should get what you like most!
