Flowers are one of those staples of Valentine’s Day, a tried-and-true gift that men everywhere fall back on because they just know it will brighten their partner’s day. While I can certainly appreciate their beauty, the allure of flowers is just not that strong for me. They don’t last long, and I tend to forget about them until I notice they’ve completely wilted.
I realize I may be in the minority, but if you’re like me and you’re just not that into flowers, there’s a better option. Trust me. You’re going to want to get a look at this alternative bouquet made of plush mini corgis.
Is that adorable or what? With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I may have to send my husband a not-so-subtle “hint” that includes the link to this amazing product.
The bouquet goes for $49.99, which sounds a bit steep, but when you factor in the fact that it will last a lifetime—unlike traditional floral bouquets—it starts to seem like a very sound investment. And, if you’re able to buy this unconventional bouquet while it’s on sale, the price is just $29.99! The bouquet includes nine cuddly puppies, and they are able to be removed from their “stems.” And look at the adorable box it comes in:
I think the only thing better than this fluffy bouquet would be one made with the real deal—like this bride who decided she and her bridesmaids would cradle real, live puppies in lieu of traditional floral bouquets on her wedding day. Have you ever seen anything more adorable than this?
If you’re just not a dog person, ThinkGeek offers a number of other bouquets made up of everything from plush dragons to kittens to unicorns and more.

If, after all of this, you still want your red roses on Valentine’s Day, or if you look forward to that heart-shaped box of chocolates every year, there’s no law saying you have to receive only one gift on the holiday of love. Besides, there are tons of occasions for which a plush bouquet would be perfect, like birthdays, anniversaries or my favorite: just because!
