F**k Flowers. Give Your Loved One A Bouquet Of Bullets

Gear

Flowers: The default gift for any occasion just got an upgrade. Now they come chambered in just about any caliber you could want with the bullet bouquet, a gun enthusiast’s replacement for a boring gift that dies after a few days.  


These fire-arm flowers, made by Bullet Bouquets and come from bullets that have been fired and recovered, are offered in a range of calibers, with options like this timeless creation, which comes with three blooms made with two .40 S&W; and one 9mm. It even has its own customized vase that says, “I love you more than my guns,” which may or may not be true.

The Parker, Colorado-based company was founded by Anthony Zambai and his wife Amber in 2015. Zambai is a self-described shooter, artist, and avid tinkerer who got the idea from a Reddit thread where he saw Josh Geho, from Glen Rock, Pennsylvania post photos of flowers made from previously fired bullets that he crafted for his girlfriend. According to the company website, after witnessing the string of “I’d buy that” comments on the thread, Zambai built prototypes, bought domain rights, created a Facebook page and threw the whole operation together in three days.

Now, the company has moved on to making everything from bobby pins, to tie tacks, lapel pins, magnets, cufflinks, and christmas tree ornaments.

Unlike other flowers, these don’t die if you forget to water them. Plus, it’s not everyday you can give a loved one a gift with a note that reads: Roses are red, violets are blue, and I bought this bullet bouquet just for you.

The encounter between the U.S. and Venezuelan planes occurred on Friday, the same day that the Trump administration announced it was sanctioning four top officials in Venezuela's military counterintelligence agency.
