Flowers from Afar: The Perfect V-Day Bouquet

If there's one thing Chris is good at, it's giving the most thoughtful gifts. From the early days of dating to now, he's always been ahead of the game -- sending flowers for everything from birthdays, to new jobs, to holidays, to just because. 

For a while he ordered from an adorable little flower shop in our neighborhood, but last year he discovered a cool new startup: The Bouqs. Their flowers are grown and shipped straight from sustainable farms in South America. And from my experience, these passport-stamped bouquets really do last longer than their store-bought counterparts. 

In honor of Valentine's Day, enjoy some of my favorite bouquets through the years. And don't forget -- you still have just enough time to pick up a Valentine bouquet for your special someone!
