Flowers are beautiful and almost epitomize Valentine's Day, especially roses, but showing up on someone's doorstep with a handmade bouquet is way more memorable. Don't forget that a bouquet of one dozen red roses from 1800flowers.com will run you $34.99 (and won’t last longer than a month or so). Maybe it's time to reevaluate our spending habits. The best part is, if you don’t know what to give your man this holiday, there are some bouquets on this list for him as well!
