Flower facts on relationships and giving

When you receive flowers, the doors of your heart swing open. When you give flowers, doors swing open in response. Expressing love and kindness through flowers - to a friend, family member or lover - is faster and less complicated than words and communicates so much about you, too. Research proves, as I always believed, that flower givers are thought of as caring and loving people who appreciate beauty - Christine Arylo, author of Choosing ME Before WE

 

Flowers and Personalities

With the hundreds of sizes, shapes and colours flowers come in, floral designs are one of the easiest gifts to customize. When it comes to gift giving, carefully selecting the flower varieties and colours you send will result in thoughtful, customized gifts people appreciate and like to receive.
The first step is to consider the preferences of the person who is receiving the gift. For instance:

  • What colours does she like?
  • Consider the likes and dislikes of the recipient. Would they like a bouquet of flowers or an arrangement or maybe a plant?
  • Do they have a favourite type of flower?
  • Do they like flowering plants or a plant they can later transfer to their garden?
  • What are his or her hobbies?
  • What is the message you would like to convey?
  • If you always give flowers on certain occasions, try giving something different each time. With the wide variety of flowers and plants available you should never run out of choices. Remember, sometimes the best reason to give flowers is for no reason at all.

Learn about the floral personality of someone you love. Some of the Floral Signatures include:

  • Natural - People who are casual, earthy and prefer the outdoors. Flowering or green plants, meadow flowers and woodsy accents suit this personality best.
  • Romantic - People who are generous, spontaneous and extravagant. Bouquets of soft colours, light fragrances and accents of lace or ribbon might suit romantics.
  • Expressive - Individuals who seek personal betterment and are attracted to the unconventional - from new age to the arts. Exotic flowers and unusual combinations of shape colour and texture will match their creativity and artistic bent.
  • Traditional - People who are trustworthy, family oriented and prefer classic styles. They appreciate lush arrangements with a great variety of flowers.
  • Contemporary - Individuals who are cutting-edge trendsetters and enjoy living in the moment. Vogue styles such as monochromatic bouquets or arrangements with a few, large vibrant flowers are favourites.

 

Finally, consult with Flowerite, your florist, who can help you create just the right gift, as well as explain the assortment of possibilities available.

Sending Flowers to a Man

Men love to get flowers for the same reason they send them - to be recognized. Everyone likes to feel special. A good indicator of when it might be appropriate to send flowers would be to consider his favourite occasions for sending them. Does he send flowers for birthdays, or perhaps as a thank you? Don't forget that no reason is often the best reason!

Just as women love receiving flowers for no reason at all, a surprise floral gift will surely catch his attention too.

The Best Designs and Colours for Men

  • Men are stimulated by colour and are visually oriented. Research shows that men prefer vivid colours such as yellow, orange and red.
  • Flower arrangements that are contemporary, linear styles or natural styles are best. Other favourites might include green or flowering plants.
  • Tell your florist that you want flowers for a man and ask for specific suggestions. If your recipient has a hobby, perhaps you could highlight that. For example, if he is a golfer, tuck in a box of golf balls. If he is into cars, add an auto magazine or two. Flowerite can offer creative suggestions for flowers that are suitable.
