Why, When, How, and to Whom Should We Give Flowers?

Giving someone flowers is one of the most special things you can do for them. There is no need to wait for any special occasion to show other people that you love them and to express gratitude and respect.

Flowers can be given just like that no matter if there is or there isn’t any special reason to do so. They bring positive energy and happiness in the everyday life. Of course, it is well known that except for smiles and good mood flowers may carry a message when carefully chosen. For example, a beautiful bouquet of red roses clearly states, “I love you.” A bouquet in the shape of a heart is the best way to apologise or to propose. This bouquet shape says, “You are my heart, and I love you.” Flowers that are arranged in a basket are a very appropriate way of expressing gratitude towards someone. A colourful bouquet of various types of flowers is the best choice when you are going to a birthday party or just visiting friends.

flowers-and-peopleBriefly, these are the things regarding the choice of flowers. Next in the row comes the logical question, “In what situations are we supposed to give flowers”. Flowers are an important part of all people’s lives. Since birth, we have been receiving flowers for all of the significant moments, achievements and celebrations.

We get flowers for our birthdays, whenever we achieve a very important goal, when we complete an essential stage in our lives such as graduating from high school, college, university when we get married. Japanese people even get flowers when they divorce. We are given flowers when we get back home from a long journey, when we are sick, when we are in love. Our whole life is surrounded by flowers, just as in a beautifully maintained garden. It depends only on you when you will decide to buy flowers for the people you love and respect no matter if there is a special reason for it.

So you have decided to buy a bouquet. You have two options here – the first one is quite easy to guess – you can simply go to the flowers store and choose the flowers you want to give. The second option is still new however it becomes more and more popular among people mainly because of the convenience it offers – purchasing flowers online. Its increasing popularity is due to the fact that ordering flowers through the Internet is much faster and easier than going to the store.

There is no need to leave your home or office; you can even choose and order the bouquet while you are stuck in a traffic jam. Besides online stores always offer a great variety of different kinds of flowers that you can pick up from. And the best thing about it is the fact that flowers will be delivered to the desired address in time desired by you. This way you can be sure that your beloved ones will receive their flowers even if they are on the other side of the earth.

Giving flowers to a lady is a staple for men who want to make an impression and delight ladies, mothers, wives, or girlfriends, and also their daughters. Flowers are considered the most appropriate presents for women of all ages, and no matter whether men choose a single flower, a whole bouquet, or a potted flower, the gesture of attention is equally emotionally rewarding both for the giver and for the recipient.

Some occasions demand more frugal floral presents, such as a single flower. A date, a dinner together, or another occasion when only the couple are involved are best complemented by a single flower present, and the choice of the particular flower type depends on the season, on the preferences of the lady, and of course on the preferences of the recipients.

Parties such as housewarming occasions or anniversary parties that are connected with visiting and communicating with the entire household are occasions that demand something more permanent such as a potted plant.

Bouquets are considered universal, and men can decide in favour of them when they feel giving a bouquet is appropriate and more emotion inducing.

Flowers have their own language, and giving specific flowers sends special messages. People who are not familiar with the meaning of flowers should consult florists or find more information on them, to be certain that they will not imply an inappropriate message.

Red tulips are universally famous as sending a message of love, whereas the ivy is a symbol of marriage and fidelity. With a single rose, the giver symbolizes simplicity. But these are just a few examples, the language of flowers is abundant, and it takes time to get acquainted with it. Furthermore, the lady’s demeanor can help to choose the right amount of flowers. Simple and calm women, for example, would appreciate simple floral gifts consisting of just one flower. Ladies who prefer luxury would be happy to receive lush bouquets. Dedicated housewives would love potted flower presents.

When giving flowers to a woman, a man could include a note, a small token, or some kind of memento, in order to strengthen the meaning of their floral present.

The choice of flowers should be careful with respect to their quality. Live flowers are the best. Dead flowers should not be bought and given to women. Fresh flowers are the appropriate type of flowers for ladies – plastic flowers are not an expression of good taste.

Flowers, whether individual ones or flower bouquets or arrangements, do not need to be very expensive in order to be a successful present for a woman. Women enjoy the gesture and the fact that they are given living, fresh, aroma permeated flowers that correspond to their feminine daintiness. Such flowers do not necessarily cost a fortune. Furthermore, when men know what their ladies’ favourite types of flowers are, they can buy them with confidence, because women appreciate when they are given their favourite type of flowers and their taste is familiar to recipients. Thus, women feel happy and respected, significant for the givers of floral presents.

    It was really helpful when you said that flowers have their own meanings and that a person should always seek the help of a florist when it comes to giving flowers as a gift so as to now give the wrong message. I am planning to give a flower to my friend as she is recovering from an illness. I want to find one that will convey a message form me wishing for her to get well soon. Seeing this article taught me how I can make that happen. Thank you!
