Tips On Giving Flowers As Gifts

“Farewell deare flowers, sweetly your time ye spent,

Fit, while ye liv’d, for smell or ornament,

And after death for cures.”

- George Herbert

It’s often in the graceful appearances of the natural things that a troubled soul finds solace. Flowers are one of them, and probably the most delicately beautiful of all. Though miniature and mute, their language is far more audible, and yet their words are difficult to decipher. It requires a special skill set to encode what they say, like Braille for the blind. It’s difficult, mind you, not impossible. Those who delight in these miniature-ish offsprings of nature can very well hear the silent hymns they sing out loud. Sweet is the little time they spend; honeyed is the taste they leave for long. It’s because of this enigmatic existence that flowers are cherished by one and all. It’s also why among the hordes of technological innovations and other class of gifts, flowers still, in the 21st century, remain the most preferred choice for gifts worldwide. If you want to send a bunch of these lively and lovely beauties anywhere in the world but are caught short on what message they may convey, then have a read of what follows next.

Actions speak louder than words; Roses speak volumes that even actions can’t convey.

  • Red – Love & Passion
  • White – Purity, Peace, Humility, and Innocence
  • Yellow – Platonic Love, Friendship, Forgiveness
  • Pink – Beauty, Gratitude, Eternal Love, and Perfect Happiness
  • Orange – Desire, and Enthusiasm
  • Purple – Love at first sight

Originating in Turkey and Persia, where they were also named so for giving a turban-like appearance when in full bloom, just like the turban the Turkish used to wear in those days (16th Century AD), Tulips are now among the top choices of flowers.

In general, tulips represent charity, fame, wealth, and spring whereas different colors denote different meanings like:

  • White – Lost Love and Forgiveness

In general, orchids represent beauty, love and wedding, whereas different colors denote different meanings like:

Believed to spring forth from the milk of Hera, the queen of the gods, Lilies are among the most ancient of flowers (right up there with the roses) and today, among the most gifted.

However, in stark contrast, lilies are also associated with funerals, denoting that the soul has regained its innocence with which it came down as a child. In general, lilies represent honor, purity, sympathy, and majesty whereas different colors denote different meanings like:

One look and its self-explanatory why cultures, as different as England and China, consider them to be a symbol of wealth and good luck. Botanically known as Narcissus and popularly known as the March birth flower and 10th-anniversary flower, these sparkly yellow-colored daffodils are the sight for sore eyes. It is, however, also believed that if given as a single bloom, daffodil can prove unlucky. But why would you want to do that when they look sublimely heaven-sent when put together in a bunch. Focus, will entirely be on them if they are in the room. In general, daffodils represent gracefulness, good luck, chivalry, sunshine, respect, clarity of thought, and inner beauty.

Like lilacs, hyacinths too are bushy little flowers that grow on top of the stem. And just as many other flowers, hyacinths too are associated with Greek mythology but today represent a different breed of flowers that have carved a niche for themselves, an identity of their own despite roses and the likes being the most preferred. In general, hyacinths represent sport or play, sincerity, and constancy.

The uncanny fascination for them is astounding! Just as they always track the direction of the sun, we too, awestruck by their bright appearance can’t let them go out of our sight. Sunflowers, also known as the 3rd-anniversary flowers, are believed to be a representation of the Sun itself and denote its warmth, respect, sunshine, love, loyalty, and long life.
