5 nerdy flower bouquets alternatives for Valentine’s Day 2016
T. Rexes are brown, Triceratops are green, flowers are dying and you are my nerd queen. The folks at ThinkGeek are rocking Valentine’s Day with their wacky and precious dinosaur-themed bouquets – the perfect gift for your nerdy Valentine. Because let’s face it, while flowers and chocolates can always be appreciated gifts, there isn’t a lot of thought or creativity involved in purchasing them. And if you live in a city, it’s literally impossible to walk down the street and avoid a discount flower stand. And within a week, that same arrangement will eventually wilt, dry out, and crumble on your Valentine’s kitchen table just before she tossed it in the trash. sorry but w om, womp.
Hence the idea behind the dinosaur bouquet – it will never wilt or die like a flower, it won’t turn into human waste like a box of chocolates, and it won’t be disappointing in post-Valentine’s group text. of your lover. “Oh wow you all have such beautiful flowers and boxes of chocolates … I hope the two presents make it through the week … like my dinosaur plush bouquet (which includes two T. Rexes, Triceratops and Apatosauruses), last forever and are totally devoid of any holiday clichés … “
