Practicality never goes out of style: Guy gives girlfriend a ‘grocery bouquet’ instead of a bouquet of flowers

  • There is this one guy who thinks out of the box by getting a more practical surprise for her girlfriend
  • And this one guy believes in the saying that ‘practicality never goes out of style’ so he made a surprise by giving her girlfriend what she actually needs
  • His grocery bouquet was the best because it was something she can use every day and something that will constantly remind her of him

During Valentine’s Day, when most people were posting of chocolates, bouquets of flowers, and sweet moments of their dates on social media, there is this one guy who thinks out of the box by getting a more practical surprise for her girlfriend.

The usual thing that lovers do during Valentine’s Day was to give surprise gifts. It can be beautiful flowers, expensive chocolates, or touching love letters. One way or another, it becomes a sign of their love and affection. This is also one challenging day on how to impress loved ones with something extraordinary.

So this one guy believed in the saying ‘practicality never goes out of style’ and made a surprise by giving what her girlfriend actually needs.

It was Vince Lubuguin idea to surprise his girlfriend Mikee with a very useful gift. Instead of giving her a bouquet of fresh flowers, Vince gave a “grocery bouquet” instead. And the ‘bouquet’ included the necessities that Mikee needed such as toothpaste, conditioner, cereals, coffee, breakfast drinks, and more that could last for a week.

By giving his economical and practical gift, it would help Mikee save more money and spared her from the stress of  queuing in the grocery store.

Vince was in Manila when he thought of what he wanted to give to make the moment more memorable for her. By giving her a surprise, he thought of something that would make her girlfriend remember him constantly. So, he decided to give her basic stuff and came up with the “grocery bouquet” idea.

As Vince said, “This grocery bouquet was the best because it is something she can use every day and something that will constantly remind her of me.”

It was not easy to create this personalized grocery bouquet for it required details and specifications, such as the right brand of her conditioner, her favorite cereal, or her choice of coffee for Mikee to appreciate it more; unlike buying a fresh bouquet of flowers that were already arranged randomly.

In a relationship, gifts and surprises somehow build the relationship stronger; but knowing what your partner needs, coupled with your honest love would bring you both to forever. Love is not measured by how expensive the gifts you have given; but on the sincerity you offer to the one you love.


Which would you have preferred: a bouquet of flowers or a ‘grocery bouquet?’
