It almost seems to be an everlasting argument between receiving and not receiving flowers, particularly since they don’t last forever. They’re practically picked with the eventuality that they’re going to wither and have to be thrown out. However, people still love receiving them, there is just something about flowers that seems the perfect gift for a whole variety of occasions. But what is it about flowers that people like so much?
A sweet gesture
It makes the perfect gesture. Flowers, no matter what type, show that you took the time out to think of that person, and that’s the kind of recognition people love. Sure, they might not last very long, but if it makes the difference when it comes to making someone feel special, appreciated, loved, or thanked, then the flowers are definitely worth it.
Creates a memory
Not only is it a sweet gesture, but it turns into a memory. Sometimes it’s easier to remember an event, or a period of your life, depending on the emotions you felt and how strong they were. People tend to remember moments of kindness as they stand out a lot more than some of the awkward times that life creates. For whatever reason you’re buying someone flowers, it can provide a moment of consolation or a moment of happiness and gratitude. Whatever the outcome, it’ll make the moment sweeter.
They’re pleasant to look at
Let’s be honest, they’re great to look at, they lift a room instantly with their shades and colors. For many people, they are also a novelty, so in the moments they do have them in the corner of the room, they get to remember how they got them. It’s a good feeling attached to a beautiful set of flowers. Some people have preferences when it comes to flowers, some people prefer roses, some people prefer tulips and others really don’t mind what they get. Sometimes people may even enjoy a color scheme over a particular flower, such as bright yellows and oranges.
It’s happiness in a vase
You don’t even need a reason to go out and buy flowers, it can literally be because you want to make them happy, and you know what that means? It’s literally happiness in a vase. What’s better than knowing that something so simple can bring someone so much happiness and at a minimal cost.
You can’t go wrong
Some flowers are worth insane amounts of money, but they don’t have to be. You know who you’re getting flowers for, whether they prefer a full bunch or they’re the kind of person who loves wildflowers. However, unless someone has the kind of relationship with flowers where they truly believe in what the flower represents, you pretty much can’t go wrong. It is also worth taking note that, if the person you’re buying flowers for has an allergy, then it’s worth double checking what sets it off.
If you really can’t help it
If you really can’t help yourself and you hate the waste of cut flowers, then you can always opt for an actual flower pot in the hopes it will thrive. However, don’t be offended if the person looking after it doesn’t manage to keep it alive; not everyone has a green thumb. Also, they may feel responsible, cut flowers come with no anxiety attached to them.
Whatever you choose, flowers are always a great gift, they’re beautiful, thoughtful, and easy to find.
