Why Should You Send Flowers to Someone?


Sending flowers to someone is one of the best decisions that you will make when forming a bond with someone. Flowers say that you thought about someone enough to surprise them.  There are many florists today that do same day delivery.  Even companies like 1800Flowers.com will make ordering flowers simple. 

I prefer to send my loved one’s flowers on occasions such as: Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, Anniversary, Birthdays and Christmas.  I find that people often respond positively to me when I send them flowers.  People will often send me a thank you card or call me saying that they loved the bouquet or floral arrangement that I sent to them.

The Best Types of Flowers to Send:

  • Roses
  • Carnations
  • Violets

There are thousands of different species of flowers to choose from. Depending on the occasion, I tend to stick with flowers that are meaningful.  For instance, I will send my significant other red roses on Valentines Day.  On Mother’s Day, I will give my mom a mum flowerpot.  For someone’s birthday, I will usually stick to pink and white carnations.  You will find that when you focus on the occasion, you will know what kind of flower to send someone. 

It’s also good to know what kind of flower someone likes the best. I usually talk with my mom daily and she always tells me how much she loves the mums that I give her on Mother’s Day.  On Easter, she tells me that her favorite flower is the yellow carnation. 

I have a best friend in Florida and she always loves the bouquet of violets that I send her through an online service provider.  You can say that she always gets them on time and fresh. 

In the United States, millions of fresh flowers are sent every single year via delivery.  You can send flowers cheap by shopping for online coupons. Almost every major online florist shop will have a coupon. 

You can send flowers online 24 hours daily on most websites.  I usually will avoid weekend deliveries because it is more expensive.  I find that sending flowers on a Monday or Tuesday is less expensive. 

Other Occasions to Send Flowers:

  • Weddings
  • Graduations
  • Sweetest Day
  • Funerals

Sympathy baskets are now becoming popular in the 21st century.  Flowers let someone know that you are sorry for something that you did. It’s the best way to let someone know that you truly care about them and apologize for what they have done.

Local flower shops are beneficial for everyone.  You can walk into them and look at what you are buying before purchasing.  They also make deals with online retailers so that they can distribute flowers.

Whenever I personally receive a next day delivery flowers, I feel like the person planned this out. It lets me know that they care deeply for me and that they want to be together with me forever. It’s something that I feel inside of my heart that is important.

I love to receive flowers on my birthday.  My mom used to buy them for me growing up. She would often give me a bit bouquet of daisies with cookies attached to them.  My mom would give this to me until I turned 18.  After my 18th birthday, she started sending me Alchemilla.  I have become well rounded with different kinds of flowers.

If I am on a budget financially, I will often search for flowers for sale in my area. I often find these at my local grocery store or Walmart. I find that I can often buy a bouquet of flowers for under $15.00.  I usually can buy a dozen roses for around $12.00. 

Make Someone Happy in the Hospital

When my aunt got sick last year with cancer, I sent her a beautiful arrangement of Balsam flowers.  She said that she was shocked because she never got flowers like this before. They came in its own flowerpot with a get well note attached to it. She said that I was the only person that gave her flowers and it really made her day. 

Whenever someone gets sick, I find that flowers let people know that you care and that you are willing to be there for them.  It lets someone know that they are loved in the world. Many people that get sick in the hospital feel like they have nobody to love them.

Flowers for Men Are Becoming More Popular

Today, sending flowers to your “man” is becoming more popular. Men are finding that receiving them cheers their day.  It often makes them feel that they can feel your love. Most men flowers are usually given in a flowerpot. Many men are into gardening and prefer potted plants over a bouquet of flowers.  They will often give of themselves. 

Order flowers online for delivery as soon as possible.  The more in advance that you give someone flowers, the better it will be in the long run.  It’s important to give flowers at the right time. Most people find that when you prepare ahead, you get a better selection of flowers as well.

I usually give my local florist 3 days in advance before the occasion. If you wait to the last moment, the florist may not have the flowers in stock that I want to send. 

I prefer fresh cut flowers.  However, I have sent my mom silk flowers on occasion and she does love them. 

As you can see, you have plenty of reasons to send flowers to people that you care about.  In this way, your life becomes a lot happier and closer to those that you care about most.
