Flowers can be used as a wonderful form of expression especially when gifting. They express a variety of feelings and can be used to commemorate any occasion. That is why they are one of the go-to gifts for most people.
With so many flower options out there, it can be hard to know what flower arrangement to gift someone.
That is why we have put together this useful guide to help you master the art of gifting flowers!
1. Find a beautiful flower arrangement.
The most important part of mastering the art of gifting flowers is to find a good reputable florist. There are many florists out there with many years of experience in arranging flowers that will be able to produce a wonderful arrangement for you.
These florists will source their flora from reputable companies such as our own – Cheltenham & Gloucester Flowers. These flowers will have been finely picked from the best growers, kept in optimum conditions and handled with the utmost care. This means that you can rest assured knowing your flower arrangement will not only look great but will stand the test of time.
There are a variety of flower arrangements on the market. You can request the usual or perhaps you would prefer them in a box? Or, potted? Perhaps you would like them in a decorative vase? You are sure to find a delightful flower arrangement to gift.
2. Pick appropriate flowers.
When gifting flowers, it is important to pick the appropriate flowers for the occasion. Some flowers are best for specific reasons whereas others are for more decorative aspects.
If you are gifting for birthdays, pick bright cheerful flowers. A full bouquet with accessories feels fit for the occasion and can help cheer the receiver.
For well-wishes, pick subtle charming flowers that are delicate and comforting. These shouldn’t overwhelm or feel busy.
For more sombre occasions such as funerals, pick flowers that express sympathy and understanding.
It is key to pick appropriate flowers that express the right emotions so that the gift doesn’t offend.
3. Add little extras.
If the occasion is right, why not add a little something extra? A scrumptious box of chocolates, a lovely bottle of bubbly or a cuddly teddy bear are great extras to consider adding.
Gifting flowers doesn’t mean you only have to provide flowers. Little charming extras can enhance the feeling of receiving flowers. Of course, the flowers will last until expiration, but some extras may last a long time and will act as a constant reminder of your caring action.
Most florists will have optional extras which can also be personalised. This helps tie together the whole gift-receiving experience.
4. Include a personalised note.
Finish your gift with a personalised note. When receiving a gift, especially flowers, it is lovely. The experience however, can be enhanced further by including either a handwritten or digital note to your flowers.
This is a lovely way to add a personal touch to the gift. It also allows the receiver to read who they have received the flowers from.
With the note, why not include pictures, poems or advice on perhaps how to care for the flora? Whatever you include, we are sure the recipient will love and appreciate it.
When it comes to the art of gifting flowers, it certainly takes practice but, we are sure you will be an expert in no time. The real key parts are to personalise, be appropriate and put in a conscious effort when considering the experience for the receiver.
Flowers always bring a smile to people’s faces. They are a great way to show thought and care, whilst also providing support in the darker times.
Here at Cheltenham & Gloucester Flowers, we know how important it is to provide the best quality flowers to florists. We appreciate that these flowers are often for special occasions, therefore, need to live up to expectations.
