When you think of buying someone flowers, a birthday or other major milestone comes to mind. While you may come off strange giving someone you don't know well flowers for no reason at all, there are plenty of reasons in general to gift anyone beautiful blooms. Here are reasons to buy someone flowers at your local floral shop.
Flowers express condolences and sorrow as much as they express joy. If someone you know has recently been injured or gone through surgery, consider getting them flowers to help cheer them up and make them feel better. The hospital they are staying at may have limitations on bringing flowers in, so ask in advance if flowers and accompanying balloons are okay.
A job promotion is a perfect time to celebrate. Someone you know getting upgraded in their position at work is all the reason to send them bold and happy blooms like sunflowers, daisies, and other cheerful blossoms. Say how proud and happy you are with cheerful blooms your friend or family member will enjoy.
With a new family member comes the reason to celebrate with flowers. You can gift baby's breath or other dainty flowers to mark the occasion and to show loved ones or neighbors how excited you are at the welcoming of a new family member. You can also gift flowers when a family adopts a new family member or when two families get married to become a blended, loving unit.
Flowers are often associated with death and placed on the passed one's grave or casket to show respect. You can gift flowers to the loved ones left behind as a token of your sorrow and to acknowledge the passing of a loved one. Flowers can say what you cannot and will be greatly appreciated during a time of grief.
You can also send someone flowers if they have recently lost a family pet. For many people, pets are cherished like children, and expressing your sorrow over the loss of a furry companion can mean more to someone than you know.
When you don't know what type of flowers to get for an occasion, talk to your local florist. They will help you create a custom floral arrangement that is both beautiful and appropriate for the person you are giving them to so you convey the ideal message with lovely blooms.
