Flower Gift Giving Tips - Hip Giver's Guide

December FlowersDecember Flowers

Flowers and plants have long played a special role in holiday festivities and are as personal and individual as the people celebrating. Use color and design to create a celebratory centerpiece, foyer display or other seasonal conversation starter!

Frequent Flowers: Floral wreaths make beautiful centerpieces. Fill the center with a trio of pillar candles, fresh fruit or glistening balls. Find more holiday floral ideas in the Holidays and Occasions section.

It's a Fact: Christmas and Hanukkah are the most popular holidays for sending and receiving flowers.

Did You Know? More than 60 million poinsettias are sold annually. And, poinsettias and amaryllis are now available in cut flower varieties so these holiday favorites can be incorporated into floral arrangements to mark the season.

Tip: If you are attending a holiday gathering, ask your florist to deliver a cheerful arrangement or holiday plant before you arrive. When you show up, you'll be the talk of the evening.

Florists have always known that flowers make people happy, and now scientific research proves flower power. Aboutflowers.com highlights university research proving the emotional and behavioral benefits of flowers and plants. Rutgers research shows that the presence of flowers triggers happy emotions, heightens feelings of life satisfaction and affects social behavior in a positive manner far beyond what is normally believed. Another Rutgers study demonstrates that flowers ease depression, inspire social networking and refresh memory as we age. A Harvard study reveals that people feel more compassionate toward others, have less worry and anxiety, and feel less depressed when fresh cut flowers are present in the home. And a Texas A&M study demonstrates that workers' idea generation, creative performance and problem-solving skills improve substantially in workplace environments that include flowers and plants.
