I have always thought that roses were the lamest valentine gift ever. Not only do they not last, but they are dying from the moment they are cut. So essentially you are giving your beloved a dying plant as a token of love. I saw this gift online and I think this is a gift that will last forever. Every time you are away, he or she can open it and pull one out and feel loved: http://www.healingbaskets.com/prod_91793.htm That $26 gift trumps $150 worth of roses any day.
