I must admit, my favorite flower arrangement to receive as a gift is NOT Roses...but breaking this news to my sweetie didn't get me any points.  I think a lot of ladies out there would agree that there are other beautiful flowers to send for Valentine's Day.  The upside is, they may be less expensive.  So guys, here are my top 5 picks for alternatives to Roses  for Valentine's Day.  What other flowers do you like?  Chime in below!
