We give flowers to convey complex messages. People give out roses to say, "I love you." For anniversaries, bouquets can carry messages that mirror the stage of the marriage or relationship. The first 15 years of marriage come with a flower. After that, flowers come every few years.
This Valentine's Day gift list is specially designed for men and women who have been committed to each other for more than just a few years.
A good engagement gift should probably be small, a bit of an experiment, and something that can be enjoyed in the near future.
