I am not sure as to what I would want to receive from my fiance, other then flowers. I am not a fan of chocolates, and perfumes and lotions are just not my thing. Jewelry isn't a big thing for me either. I think that if it was something that my fiance wanted to give to me, I would ask him to pick himself something out as he would benefit from it and I would enjoy it as well as he would be happy that he had it.

I assume you mean what would he pick out for himself? I would imagine a X BOX 360 if we had the money for it, or a new controller as his being faulty.

If I had to choose between flowers and chocolates to give to my fiance,I would choose flowers,because they smell nice,they last longer,and flowers can brighten up any room,that and I know my fiance likes flowers lol.

If I had to choose or give a gift, I will take chocolates any times. I never met any boy or girl who can resist chocolates. So as a gift chocolates are perfect. Not everyone llike flowers though.

that would be reasonable. i like chocolates. and i would love to receive some. so maybe others would also love to receive chocolates as gifts. would the quality and price of the chocolate matter to you?

No, not everyone loves chocolates. I don't love chocolates. I mean, I do like them, but not to the point that I'll constantly crave for them the way others do. In fact, I'll be happier with the flavors mocha, strawberry and vanilla more than chocolate. And I know of a few friends who don't like chocolate either. But then, there are really a lot of chocoloate lovers, so it's normal to assume that everyone loves chocolate.

i always thought most girls like flowers. so maybe this time chocolates are a lot sweeter. i don't know what "mousa" is though. why do you like it so much? i like giving flowers because i think they are beautiful and meaningful. Flowers will die down after a few days, but i think it had made its impact. but i agree that chocolates stays longer. but would chocolate make a greater impact to you? would it mean more love?

mousa - my favorate brand of chocolate.
in my opinion,we can send flowers to our lover,family members,friends and strangers.but only chocolate has special meanings.i think it's the best gift between lovers. you may have heard of DOVE. Mousa is my favorate brand of chocolate.here is a picture.it has a wonderful taste.

it looks tempting. no wonder it is your favorite chocolate. i guess we have different views of chocolates and flowers. for me chocolates are the ones we can give to anybody and only flowers to a special someone. you got me thinking though. it's always nice to hear a different opinion.

I would rather accept flowers. Giving flowers is a traditional one. Chocolates can be consumed although both can, but when someone gave me flowers I truly appreciate it and it depends on the color. White is my favorite as my boyfriend always say It is for eternal love. And it always give me a smile every time he gave me flowers.

Flowers, it is. although some prefec chocolates as sophialin above, i think flowers are still more romantic. i don't know the meaning of the colors of the flowers though. i always give my girlfriend red flowers as a sign of love. but as you have said, white flowers could be more romantic as it means eternal love. maybe i should shift to giving white flowers than red ones.

I loved chocolates. I prefer receiving gifts and anything will do. But if someones give me a presence like chocolates I will me much happier. I don't know maybe chocolates are really my weakness. I just remember when my best friend and I had some fights she gave me sweets like chocolates. I guess this is the only way for me to be happy. hehehe...

hi mialei23! if you haven't noticed, you have responded to this discussion in response number 6. but i don't mind you replying again, in fact, i appreciate another response. maybe chocolates are the weakness of most girls because they have substances that make you feel happy. and girls like sweet things. but i don't want you being addicted to chocolates, it maybe bad to your health.

Hi richiem, I prefer chocolates than flowers, I know both of these things is a way of expressing of your thoughtfulness but as for me chocolates is sweet and I can tell when someone receives a chocolate you can never draw the happiness they have in their face maybe because chocolates contains something that makes people happy and energetic. I would love to receive chocolates, most especially white chocolate.

I think this is late responce. I don't like dark or milk chocolate because I used to eat them even its ordinary chocolates. Dark chocolates has a bitter taste for me, LOL. I don't know but some says there are some dark chocolates that has a good taste, I hope I will find out that brand of chocolates. =D

chocolates flowers withers and yet i won't benefit anything from it but memories. i can't eat it when i'm hungry thus it won't be able to feed both my stomach and my mind at the same time. chocolates get through my insides, before luring my tongue with its sweetness, all while refreshing my mind with the thoughts of receiving such a gift. chocolates help in my mood swings too... they brighten me up even when i'm really mad.

a very different way of looking at it. "Chocolates get through my insides", I love that part!

If I were to be given the chance to choose only one, definitely I will pick a bouquet of real flowers. I feel proud and pleasant to receive fresh flowers from my loved one. I am sure I will give him a kiss and embrace in return to express my gratitude for his love and caring upon me.

And i think men like giving flowers. we like the feeling that it gives you women. we like seeing you happy and feeling like in a cloud, complete with eyes closed and your breathing fast as you smell the flowers, like you want to fly. It's makes us feel proud of what we have given you, makes us feel worthy to be your men.

well its a tough decision as both are quite romantic either to receive or give . Flowers are pretty and they smell nice but considering that I have a sweet tooth I would pick chocolate ...

It would be flowers but not the cut kind. They die so quickly. I would ask for a rose bush and ask that it be planted out in the yard where I asked it to be placed. That way everyday I could look out of my house and see the flowers that were planted just for me.

It is so hard to choose! For me it depends. I love to receive chocolates if I love the brand, like Ferrero, Hershey's. Bueno, Patchi, and Godiva. I love to receive flowers if i love the color. I love to receive pink roses. I usually don't feel happy when I receive red roses because it's too common, and dark. I feel like the person who gave it to me just grab the most common flower, and didn't think of my favorite.
