Valentine’s Day is just a short month out.  Truly one of the girliest holidays there is.  If your dude could use some pointers, send him this here post.

Forget the roses this year.  Peonies are arguably every girl’s favorite flower.  And this dried peony wreath will last a lot longer than a bouquet of roses.  The End.

available here at William Sonoma.  (Online only)
If you choose to head down the chocolate route you’ll win major points by surprising her with something a little more original.  Have a local chocolatier?  Go there.  If not, I can personally vouch for these Cocoa Covered Truffles from 5th Avenue Chocolatiere in NYC.  Ridiculous good.  And they’re well presented in a wooden box and ship too. 
Good luck.

    I don’t think any gal can resist a beautiful peony! They’re so much prettier and more interesting than a rose.
