We recently wrote about how it feels like flower bouquets have become so common (and expensive!), especially during Valentine’s day. While it’s still a very sweet gesture, it might not be the best gift to get just anyone. Some people don’t like flowers, some are allergic, and some just want to see something new.
But it seems like we spoke too soon. It looks like more and more people are leaving behind flowers to focus on novel ideas for their bouquets. As soon as we posted about a grocery bouquet, our readers started sending us some of their most ‘unique’ bouquets. Check them out below!
Lorein and Aiji both received sacks of rice from their significant other’s. Aiji’s boyfriend, Arnel, even sent this 25kg sack of rice all the way from Bohol to Manila!

Nancy talked about once getting a bouquet of barbeque hot dogs, “kids party style”:
4. Alternative ‘flowers’
None of that was quite as “heartstopping” as Tush’s bouquet of chicharon bulaklak. She shares that after 13 years together, regular flowers had gotten a bit boring.
3. Junk food
In the same category is this collection of fast food and desserts from Dee Dee. To any haters out there who are going to complain about how unhealthy this is — we want a good life, not a long one (jk!).
On the opposite end of the spectrum is Tina’s kale bouquet. She actually gifted this to herself and we are loving it! Valentine’s day is as much about self-love as it is any other kind of love.
1. Fish and produce
Last but definitely not least is this “fresh” bouquet:
