Sure to become any foodie's favorite stores, the California-based Trader Joe's is popular far and wide for wine, specialty foods and also affordable fresh flowers.

For just $5.99 per bunch of ten, these hearty tulip bouquets make an ideal gift for a love one. Or spruce up your home or office with a colorful spark of early spring. Fresh tulips are beautiful in all their stages, from tight turbans to fully-opened with petals revealing intricate interior designs. Tulips are the perfect antidote to winter. And fresh flowers can improve our health, according to Dr. Andrew Weil. Flower are not frivolous: Why you should treat yourself to fresh blooms.
