Pinoys come up with creative ‘bouquets’ for Valentine’s Day

Feb. 14, 19 | 12:08 pm

When the world visualizes the ideal Valentine’s Day, it almost always consists of the combination of a lovely bouquet of flowers, box of chocolates, as well as a candlelit romantic dinner. However, for Filipinos especially for OFWs, there are much more important financial priorities than spending money for one occasion.

This is why these Filipinos came up with very creative Valentine’s ‘bouquets’ and ‘gifts’ that would last them for several more days compared to the lifespan of a freshly picked bouquet of flowers.

Check them out here.

School needs

This Pinay just got exactly what she needs for her studies – a set of new MedTech essentials!

Straight from the seas

Wrapped in a nice banana leaf, this bouquet of fishes have netizens guessing what kind of viand this will turn into – is it Paksiw? Sinigang? or just plain Pritong Isda with Kamatis slices on the side?

Rice

While this gift isn’t necessarily a bouquet, it is indeed more practice to just buy a sack of rice as it is around the same price (or maybe even less) than a dozen roses.

A different kind of flower

You can already feel a slight tinge of pain at the nape of your neck as your blood pressure seems to rise at the sight of arguably one of the Pinoy’s most favorite snacks, Chicharong Bulaklak in a bouquet!

Hotdogs with Marshmallows

This one will instantly remind you of your own birthday party when you were still a kid.

Coffee 

Perfect for coffee lovers, this bouquet’s contents can easily be stashed in your desk for that much needed caffeine boost in the morning.

Groceries

Apart from being creative for a bouquet, this Pinay just saved time off from a trip to the grocery store as this bouquet already has most of what she needs!

Vegetables

Tina, in her own way to live a healthier lifestyle, opted to gift herself with a fresh stash of kale in a bouquet!
