If you pay me i will go out and pick the flowers and deliver it to her. I'll even throw in a song. Perhaps something by Lil Wayne should suffice. But don't blame me if she falls in love with me. Which i can almost guarantee she will.

Not being cheap or anything but I find that there are better options aside from Thomas Hobbs. I got a dozen of roses and not only did it hurt the wallet, it wasn't anything special.

"Buy The Bunch" on Main and I think it was 28th or 29th isn't bad however, I'm not sure if they're still there. There's a mom'n'pop shop owned by a retired Japanese couple in their 60s, I believe called Rainbow Florists on Main not far away from Buy the Bunch who deserve notable mention.

Rip off in the worst degree, but most florists are all the same, I go to a florist at mckenzie and 41st, but the best place for affordable flowers is a distributor down on SW Marine and Manitoba 3 dozen roses for $15 dollars

ok. this place doesn't deliver, but...

They have the nicest flowers in town. I GUARANDAMNTEE it.
it is run by an old chinese couple and i swear to you, you will not find a better deal on flowers and their presentation is beyond amazing.

They are located on Knight street and 57th avenue in Vancouver.
Right next to the Chevron gas station, it is a convenience store/flower shop (it's on 57th avenue).

I'm telling you, for the price you pay for flowers, and for what you get. you'll be blown away! their style has a HK flavour but with their own twist!

There's a flower shop in Pacific Plaza in Richmond (Cambie & Garden City) They had really nice roses and they deliver. Not sure about the cost though but the quality is good.
