If you're looking for a gift for any special person in your life, step into your favorite local florist shop. While you can find any type of fresh bloom there, there are also several other thoughtful options available, such as special arrangements and floral accessories.
Floral shop gifts are appropriate for any type of special occasion or event, including birthday parties, holidays such as Christmas, Valentine's Day, and Easter, as well as anniversary soirees, graduation celebrations, housewarmings, bridal and baby showers, and weddings. Floral presents will also work for friends and loved ones of all ages.
No matter what your gift-giving budget is, you'll have no problem finding a great fit. Since there is such a wide range of gifts available for various prices, you can either treat the recipient to just one personalized item or design a creative, one-of-a-kind gift with several different pieces.
Following are some floral shop gift ideas to consider:
1. Seasonal Floral Arrangement
If the gift is for a specific holiday or time of the year, create a festive floral arrangement for the celebrant. For instance, if it's an Easter or other type of springtime gift, have the florist create a fresh, vibrant floral arrangement using in-season blooms.
Some ideas include yellow, pink, and purple tulips, elegant calla lilies, showy peonies, hydrangeas, and roses of all colors. If you know the recipient's favorite type of spring flower, such as sweet-smell lilacs, create a bouquet featuring just them.
Place the floral arrangement in a pastel-hued glass vase, and tie a spring-inspired ribbon around it as a finishing touch. Use ribbons with whimsical gingham, Easter bunny, carrot, or baby chick designs.
2. Birthday Arrangement
Celebrate a friend or loved one's birthday with a bouquet filled with the type of flowers associated with his or her birth month. For instance, treat September celebrants to asters, June celebrants to roses, April celebrants to daisies, and November celebrants to assorted chrysanthemums.
Further personalize the gift with a vase in his or her favorite color or design, such as cats or dogs. You can also have the vase customized with the celebrant's name, birthdate, or a special message. Hire a professional to do the artwork for you, or get creative yourself with acrylic paints.
Complete the gift with a handful of "happy birthday" balloons, which you can also purchase at the florist shop. Other flower arrangement accompaniments include stuffed animals. floral-scented candles and assorted gardening supplies, such as gloves and seed packets.
