When we think of flowers or plants, we often consider them mere gifts without completely understanding why we give them to another person. We’ll see flower baskets, full of nature’s colourful beauty, and not realize we’re sending a heartfelt message to another – perhaps even the receiver doesn’t fully appreciate this!
Your florist knows this well, however, and understands the roses you deliver to someone you care about, or the bouquets you deliver as a gift, or even the floral arrangements you have made for a funeral all say something deeply important to you.
So what can you do to make your message clearer the next time you send flowers? And how can ordering your flowers online assist you in this endeavour? When you order and send your flowers online with a real florist (such as Brant Florist) you’ll have the chance to fill out a free gift card that will be included in your flower delivery.
Let’s take Mothers Day for example. You’ve chosen the perfect flower arrangement consisting of her most cherished blossoms – orchids, lilacs, or something more exotic such as sunflowers – but your gift doesn’t seem completely finished.
A rose by any other name smells just as sweet as the saying goes, but a rose given in different circumstances can mean different things. The same goes for any bouquet or arrangement!
So, when you have your beautiful gift delivered to that special woman on her special day, what is it exactly that you’re trying to tell her?
· Are you cherishing her company and motherly wisdom?
· Are you sending her sympathy for having to endure your childhood?
· Are you sending a simple all inclusive “thank you”?
Gift cards with flower delivery make your thoughts all the more special – and clear! You don’t have to write a novel to get your meaning across. Brevity is an art form, and so seems writing the perfect one line message on a card, but you’ll do just fine.
Always remember that the message you’re trying to send is already contained within your floral gift – crafted delicately and thoughtfully by experienced florists – and so consider the words on your card a friendly greeting that sets the bigger stage for what you would like to say. It’s the warm hello preceding a big hug or a touch of condolence.
There are many occasions that could be better recognized with flowers accompanied by a gift card, including a friend’s birthday, an anniversary, Christmas, memorial recognition, Easter, a close friend’s wedding, or any time when you wish to recognize the importance of romance, partnered or kindred love and holiday cheer. The opportunities are endless!
Also keep in mind that fresh flowers aren’t the only types of gifts with hidden messages waiting to be introduced by a card. Gift types of many varieties can have this philosophy applied to them, so be sure to consider all your possibilities when shopping for the perfect message!
Sometimes something as simple as balloons or a fruit basket could greatly benefit from a concisely written message – the receiver will be all the more receptive because of it.
When you shop online with Brant Florist for your flowers and gifts, you’ll notice that a free gift card is included with your order. All you have to do is fill out your thoughts and they will be included in the delivery, making you feel better about your gift – and its message even more meaningful. Be sure to send your flowers the right way!
