Flower Gift Giving Tips Flowers & Personalities
Matching Flowers to Personalities

With the hundreds of sizes, shapes and colors flowers come in, floral arrangements are one of the easiest gifts to customize. When it comes to gift giving, carefully selecting the flower varieties and colors you send will result in thoughtful, customized gifts people appreciate and like to receive.

The first step is to consider the preferences of the person who is receiving the gift. For instance:

  • What colors do he like?
  • Does she have any favorite flowers?
  • What are his hobbies?
  • What kind of message do you want to convey?

Here are examples of arrangements you or a friend might like:

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.
