Bouquet Ideas for Valentines That Don’t Like Flowers [GALLERY]
Flowers are the one of most popular Valentine's Day gifts, but let's face it, not everybody wants them! Personally, I'd much prefer a bouquet of something else. Here are some other fun bouquet options for your valentine this year:
Fun Bouquet Ideas for Valentine's Day
If your Valentine prefers food over flowers, chicken nuggets are a great bouquet option. Pick out their favorites (I prefer McDonald's), arrange them on skewers, and wrap some cellophane or wrapping paper around it. BOOM. Chicken Nugget Bouquet. Feel free to add fries, too!
Donut holes are another incredibly easy food to turn into a bouquet. You can choose a variety of flavors, and unlike chicken nuggets, they don't have to be served warm, which makes things even easier.
Mini Liquor Bottles
For Valentines over the age of 21, a bouquet of mini liquor bottles is a fun option! Pick out all their favorite liquors, use some tape to attach them to the end of bamboo skewers, and you're good to go!
Olive Garden Breadsticks
A few years ago, Olive Garden had a Valentine's Day promotion where you could order some of their delicious breadsticks to-go, and they would include a paper to wrap them up in in order to create a breadstick bouquet. Even if they no longer offer that promotion, you can still buy some breadsticks and wrap them up in some cellophane or wrapping paper. And, since the breadsticks are long, there's no need to put them on skewers!
Did you know that you can transform slices of bacon into tiny roses? There's nothing better than roses you can EAT! Check out a tutorial on how to make a bacon roses bouquet HERE.
In recent years, candy bouquets have been popping up all over the place as an alternative to flowers. You can choose pretty much any candy you want for the bouquet, and then just tape each one to a bamboo skewer. You can even make the finished product extra fancy, like this photo of a pre-made one from Amazon (or you can just order it and save yourself any work at all).
Meat & Cheese
Forget getting a fancy charcuterie board, just take all the meats and cheeses and turn them into a bouquet! You can buy mini, pre-wrapped meats and cheeses and tape them to skewers, or you can go the extra mile and slice everything up yourself and stick them on skewers in kabob form. Either way, it's sure to be delicious! For a bonus, throw in a fancy bottle of wine to enjoy with it.
Texas Roadhouse Rolls (with cinnamon butter)
Much like Olive Garden Breadsticks, Texas Roadhouse Rolls are another beloved restaurant item that you can easily turn into a bouquet with the help of skewers. All I ask is that you don't forget the cinnamon butter!
Whether you want to bake them yourself or buy some from the store, everybody loves a bunch of cookies! You can buy individually packaged cookies, or wrap each one yourself with plastic wrap. Then, YOU GUESSED IT, you tape them to skewers. You could also add some cake pops to the mix!
And finally, if your Valentine doesn't care for food or alcohol, you can get creative with a cash/gift card bouquet! Get a few gift cards for places you can go together, tape them to skewers, and then take some dollar bills and fill out the bouquet. There are no flowers that smell as good as cold hard cash! Lottery tickets could be a fun addition, too.
