Express Your Gratitude with Specialty Floral and Fruit Basket Arrangements
One of the nicest ways to show someone they’re special is to hand or send them a bouquet of fresh flowers. In addition to bouquets with a single type of flower, you may also want to include several varieties with a sprig or two of greenery. There are so many different types of beautiful arrangements available from your local florists.
If you’re not sure when to gift someone with flowers, your local florist will likely recommend these and other occasions:
- Get well soon
- New baby
- Thinking of you
Holidays of all types usually provide an excellent occasion to send flowers. The number one holiday season for flowers, as you may be aware, is during Hanukkah and Christmas.
Around one-fourth of holiday floral purchases are made for Mother’s Day. The National Retail Federation found that in 2016, 66% of the people surveyed were planning to buy flowers for their mothers.
Valentine’s Day is, of course, another popular holiday to send flowers or purchase them for yourself. It’s interesting to note that men also appreciate receiving flowers, and many wives purchase them for their husbands. The American Society of Florists states that this is the busiest day for purchasing fresh flowers. Bouquets of roses of continue to be a popular Valentine’s Day flower, especially when they also come with a beautiful keepsake vase.
While 37% of the flowers purchased are to give as gifts to others, 63% are purchased as gifts for oneself. Beautiful fragrant flowers are known to lift a person’s spirit as well as brighten up a room or office space.
Fruit basket arrangements are also a wonderful way to show love and appreciation. Gifting friends, family, or colleagues with fresh, high-quality fruit can be a welcome surprise. This is an especially nice gift idea when the basket contains an assortment of fruit. Apples, oranges, pears, strawberries, and tangerines are just a few types of fruit that may be included in a fruit basket arrangement.
When you want to send specialty floral arrangements, a bouquet of flowers, or a fruit basket arrangement, your local florists will be able to make recommendations. If you aren’t sure what someone may like, you can always ask your local florist about their best selling flowers. And remember to purchase a bouquet for yourself as well.
