If there’s one thing that fresh flowers and my middle school boyfriend have in common, it’s that I loved them too fast and hard until I promptly got bored and left them to die.

While there is little to no survival rate when it comes to middle school relationships, technically your flowers should be able to survive longer than preteen love. Theoretically, all you need to do is change your water and trim the stems often.

But how can all of this be streamlined while keeping it cute and requiring zero time and — even worse — effort? Enter this seemingly standard-looking vase.

The Amaranth Vase, $39.99

This chic Amaranth Vase’s design makes freshening up a bouquet of flowers super easy. Featuring a unique twist design, the vase drains water from the bottom while keeping the bouquet secure in the top half. It allows you room to trim the stems and remove old water with ease. Yes, please.

Available on Amazon (literally so convenient), the innovative vase comes in five colors — including the soothing Mint Green pictured above. It also comes in two different sizes for all of your bouquet needs. Like when you go to Trader Joe’s and grab a bunch of flowers in the checkout line only to get home and remember you only own one small vase. Whoops.
