As a gift consultant, when I suggest flowers as gifts to my clients, I get varied responses like:
1. The men love the idea as its simple and hassle-free, yet guaranteed to work to please the women in their lives.
2. The women think flowers are too feminine and their male counterparts wouldn’t appreciate them fully.
Most people only think of Red or Pink roses when they think of gifting flowers to someone. As someone who loves flowers and secretly aspired to be a florist someday, I think its really unfair to the lillies, carnations, tulips and orchids.
Agreed that Red and Pink roses work best if you want to express your love to your woman, especially on an anniversary or on Valentine’s day, but there are numerous other floral arrangements that can be gifted at other occassions.
A tip a florist once gave me – Always make sure you cut off a little bit of the stems from the bottom before putting your flowers in water. If you do not have flower food, a spoon of sugar, added to the water, should suffice in helping to keep them fresh longer.
