Flowers from your SO? A complete waste of money?

Do you appreciate your husband buying your flowers? Or would you prefer he didn't spend the money?  Personally I'm not a big fan of cut flowers as a gift. Too temporary.  Hate to sound ungrateful but I'd rather have something that lasted longer.

My husband doesn't give me flowers much. I wish he would do it more often. I love flowers. He is the only one who has ever given me flowers.

In theory I agree with you but DH likes doing it so I say think you and enjoy them while they last but mainly I just appreciate that he wanted to do it.

DH buys living plants rather than cut flowers. I have an orchid he bought for valentine's day a few years ago that has been almost continuously in bloom. That's worth it to me.

I love getting flowers. I don't get them often but when I do I appreciate them.

Love getting flowers. I esp love if he buys them from the side of the road or just because he thought of me .

I've always appreciated the fact that he thought to buy me flowers and spent the money. I'd be grateful if I were you, especially if flowers aren't necessarily in your budget and he's making the effort to get them for you anyway.

If you like flowers but not the ones bought from the store/florist ask him to plant your favorite ones in the yard.

Love flowers, my husband usually gets me them for mother's day and my birthday.

I get flowers or flowering plants so rarely thanks to a cat that eats anything like it that I love when I do get them! Having plants and flowers in the house help to purify the air and lifts the spirits. So far from a waste of money, even if they are temporary.
