4 Reasons You Should Skip the Flowers This Valentine's Day

4 Reasons You Should Skip the Flowers This Valentine's Day
If we're being honest, pretty much everything about Valentine's Day is cliche and lame: plastic-wrapped flowers, cheap candy, horrible puns that make you want to rip Cupid's little wings out and throw him up against a wall. It's unfortunate because the meaning behind V-Day is really quite admirable. The deep enduring love that can be shared between two human beings is a special thing and deserves to be celebrated by everyone in a way that is thoughtful and unique. Here's our take on the conventional status quo, the played-out flower bouquet, and how to give them a spicy twist. Hint: it involves an armful of salami

1. We've made a better gift

Introducing our heart-shaped box filled with meats and a special salami "treat." This chocolate ganache is unique, fun and extremely delicious. Try a different route to their heart and invest in quality meats and sweets, handcrafted from our very own in Portland, OR. 

2. They wilt and die so soon!

A big part of why you love your boo is that they do so much for you! That love isn't fleeting, so their gift shouldn't be, either. Get them something you can enjoy, together, for a long time! We won't be upset if you eat it all in one night, though!

3. They're boring and unoriginal

Even if you've been together for a long time, you still want to surprise each other and keep the mystery alive! But the quickest way to kill that excitement is by getting a bouquet of flowers at the grocery store right on your way home from work. Predictable, cliche and way too little effort. Up the ante with our Salami Bouquet, a totally original concept we think is also pretty dang funny.

4. What they really want is the meat

If you do decide to go the flowers route, your sweetheart is probably generous enough to say that they love it and you. Just know that deep deep down, they will be yearning for a delicious savory snack. So save yourself the trouble and do it right the first time.
