If you’re a girl, Valentine’s Day sucks. No, I’m not here to talk about how V-Day sucks for the thousandth time when you’re single while all of your friends Instagram their new Yurman bracelets and giant bouquets of roses. If you’re single on February 14th, you know what to expect and you can prepare for a girls’ night in with a bottle of rosé. But if you’re dating or in a relationship, things get tricky. Sure, you’ll get a good gift and nice dinner out of the holiday, but you’re also responsible for picking out a gift for your guy. And let me tell you from experience, there is absolutely NOTHING appropriate to get a guy for Valentine’s Day, making the time up until this holiday filled with anxiety and hoping you don’t pick out something awkward that defines your new relationship in a way he’s totally not ready for.
This year, some absolute geniuses came up with the new standard Valentine’s Day gift for men, and I’m about to be the first in line. Company “Say It With Beef” came up with the perfect way to show your guy your appreciation with a bouquet of beef jerky flowers – a broquet, if you will. For $35, you can get a handmade broquet of original, peppered, or teriyaki beef jerky flowers in a man-friendly pint-glass vase. You can give your guy a dozen beef daisies, or if you really think he’s the one, maybe even a dozen roses.
Are these hipster and millennial AF? Absolutely. Will they work? Also absolutely. Look, for guys it’s easy – a stroll down the red and pink aisle at any CVS will net you the standard V-Day gifts that we’ve come to expect, and you can easily give our Pinterest boards a scroll if you want to appear extra thoughtful. Now, we finally have a way to show our appreciation to the men in our life with a flower delivery they’ll actually enjoy. .
