Sending flowers to wife at her office--good or bad? 2/14/2011 8:48AM Reply | Return to Index | Report Post
I'd like to have some roses delivered to my wife's office, but I'm not sure if it's a better gesture to bring them home this evening. Advice?

No question about it the office is better. It is better to recieve flowers at work where she can show them off to her co-workers. It makes a woman feel very special to recieve a flower delivery. Where would you rather set a PR, by yourself on an empty track or in a race with a crowd watching?

Either way, she'll love it.

You, sir, need to learn to respect the flowers.

It's a gamble - some women hate it, some women love it. I hope you know your wife well enough to know which one of these people she is....

I think it depends on your wife. I would rather my husband brought them home, because I don't like people to make a big deal about such things. However, my co-worker specifically commented that her boyfriend scored huge points by sending her flowers to the office, because then "all of your friends can see them." If your wife prefers a fuss - send them to the office. Otherwise, bring them home.

Bad. It will hurt her chance to have an affair with the guy down the hall.

Whose wife? Yours or someone else's? You've omitted a crucial piece of information.

"my wife's office" sort of implies it's his wife...

Go for work. That way she can enjoy them all day. Then surprise her with a single rose when she gets home. Then you get the best of both.

Awesome idea! (or, to really be a don juan, when she arrives home hand her a flower of the same species of the first flower(s) you ever gave her-i.e. a lily or daisy or whatever. Think hard and remember what that was. Heck, if it was a rose then get a rose for when she comes home but explain that THIS rose is to remember the first flower you ever gave her).

Gentlemen (and most letsrun posters too): women tend to appreciate that some real thought went into the gift/gesture. Well, unless your gf or wife is a dumb b**** that only cares about $ and showing off for her friends, then you've got bigger (and more expensive) problems. But that's entirely beside the point of this thread

My mom isn't big on flowers at all. She'd rather just do dinner somewhere. One year, however, every woman where she worked received flowers EXCEPT her. It was terrible and still bothers me to this day as I know it really made her feel bad. My dad and I just didn't think to send flowers because she wasn't a big flower gal, but being the only one without makes it a big deal.

Bottom line: send the flowers

This is the most important post here and it is the same thing I've been harping on in the other thread about hating valentine's day. No matter how you feel about the holiday, think of your mother, wife, girlfriend, significant other, etc., and make sure she does not end up feeling left out due to your strong feelings against the holiday.

Do guys here send their mother flowers for Valentine's Day? I'm sorry, I just think that's creepy. Probably popular (and appropriate) in one or two states.

And, sending flowers to her workplace is always a good thing. I just got the phonecall thanking me for sending flowers to her work and she remarked as to how special she felt as all her co-workers saw her receive them. All I did was send flowers and she feels special all day, so its well worth it.

And thanks to the poster above for recommending the single rose. I may give her a rose tonight with her card.

Bad, VERY, VERY bad. Despite what men think, professional women do not want to be seen by her colleagues carrying a dozen red roses in a professional setting. Women work hard to be taken seriously in the office place. Don't wreck it for her.

I think the bigger issue is that you make your wife work. WTF is wrong with you? You are not man enough to take care of your wife? She has to go earn her own money? Sounds like she got the short end of the stick.

If you are like me, you provide for your family. My wife gets her flowers delivered to the spa where she is spending the day with my daughters.

CEOh is just a dick, ignore him

Horrified does have a point - in some settings it could be a bad thing. At other work places (ie. my wife's) they practically keep a score sheet.

As mentioned by a few, you should (read that as NEED TO if you want to stay happily married) know your wife well enough to know what she would like.

p.s. My wife just made a point of stopping by my work to tell me I'm gettin' some tonight.

I sent them to her office this year for the first time. Big hit. There are several other professional women at her office; some got flowers and some didn't, but those who did were, apparently, very happy with the flowers and their delivery point.
