When Words Fail, Say it With Flowers
It is easy to draw a blank when shopping for friends and family members. Whether you are looking for the perfect Christmas gift, an unforgettable birthday present, a suitable graduation gift or just a token of your esteem, finding the perfect item can be quite difficult.
Electronic gadgets go out of style and become obsolete almost before they are taken out of the box. Toys break and get thrown in a corner after the wrapping paper is discarded. Food gifts often miss the mark due to differences in taste. Gift cards and money are impersonal and fail to convey the care and concern you want to express.
The good news is that there is a gift that is as timeless as the love you feel and appropriate for every occasion. When you give the gift of flowers, you are giving the gift of enduring beauty; something only nature can provide.
If you cannot make it home for the holidays this year, you can send flowers to your loved ones and let them know how much you care. If you are going home for Christmas or Thanksgiving, bringing a bouquet of flowers for your host is a way to express your appreciation and thanks for the wonderful meal and memorable times.
If you have a spouse or partner at home, something as simple as a single bloom taped to the bathroom mirror is a quirky way to express your love. Fresh flowers can say so much, even when you are at a loss for words. Depending on the situation, that single sweet blossom can say "I'm sorry," "I love you," or "You are special."
If you are currently single but looking for a creative way to pop the question, flowers can come to the rescue once again. Filling the room with fresh flowers can set the mood and enhance the romance. You can follow up with an intimate dinner at home, present the ring and wait for your partner to say yes.
If you want something a little more dramatic, you can overwhelm your spouse-to-be with a house full of fresh flowers. Just wait until your soon-to-be fiancé is away from home, then fill vase after vase with fresh cut flowers of all colors and hues. You could even set up a floral scavenger hunt, with each clue leading to a romantic marriage proposal.
As you can see, flowers can say so much. If you are lost for words, stop trying to find the right expression and say it with flowers instead.
