A Guide To Buying Flowers For Women
When buying flowers for a special person in your life, it can be hard to know where to begin. When you walk into a florist, there are so many different flowers, colours, and bouquets to choose from, but they can all send a different message depending on what you are wanting to say. Here are some helpful tips on the best flowers to send depending on the relationship you have with the person receiving them.
Buying flowers for a long-term partner
If you are buying flowers for a long-term partner, it is important to think about what they like.
You should also think about the occasion. For example, if it’s an anniversary or birthday, you may want to go for their favourite flower, but if it’s a ‘hey I love you’ kind of gift, maybe go for something a bit more unusual.
Red roses symbolise romance and love, so they can make a stunning bouquet that shows a long-term partner just how much they mean to you.
Buying flowers to tell a girl you like her
Flowers can also be a great way to express your emotions, but if you’re not sure how a girl feels about you, flowers can also be the perfect way to test the waters.
We all know that flowers are universally considered a romantic gesture by women, but there are some types that might help get their attention more than others.
For example, you could get some tulips that represent sincerity, lilies to indicate purity or some sunflowers to bring cheerfulness into your special someone’s life.
Buying flowers for a female relative
Flowers are not solely bought for romantic partners; they can also be bought for a relative to say thank you or let them know you are thinking of them.
For example, if you are buying flowers for a female relative on Mother’s Day, a great choice is pink carnations or pink roses as both express how much you care.
A bouquet of pink flowers is a great choice for any female family member, so whether it is your sister, grandma or aunt, you can’t go wrong with a beautiful pink bouquet!
Buying flowers for a work colleague
You may also consider sending flowers as a thank you gift if someone has done something nice for you or just simply been your helping hand at work.
However, you could also send flowers if there has been tension between the two of you recently as a way of communicating that you still care for the other person.
Some great flower choices for both a thankyou or sorry gift are yellow tulips or roses as the colour yellow reflects warmth and friendship, acting as a great way of simply saying ‘you are a terrific friend’.
