So it's established: people love bacon.Follow my logic on this one, guys. If your significant other loves bacon, then giving them a whole bouquet of it is definitely an act of true love!
Don't get me wrong, flowers are great too.But... they do just wilt after a week. And it's not like you can eat them! Unless your palate is feeling particularly avant-garde, that is.
But bacon is definitely edible.So if you fold strips of bacon into little roses and gather them in a foodie's dream bouquet, you've got something cute and useful.

And you can still do other things for your significant other.If you're one of those couples who like to go all in on Valentine's Day, then nobody's saying you have to stop at gifting your sweetheart some floral meat. But it's a pretty cute start, right?
