Things to Know Before Giving Friends Flowers

Giving flowers to friends is just a fun way to brighten up someone's day for many of us. In this guide, we'll show you how flowers can help you boost your relationships with other people and make them feel better about themselves.

What does it mean when a friend gives you flowers?


When someone you know well enough to be on a first-name basis with a friend, family member, or significant other.


They give you flowers, saying, "I appreciate you, and I want everyone to know it." Flowers are one of the most popular gifts for any occasion.


Flowers may indicate the start of a romantic relationship or anniversary. The birth of a child or grandchild, a birthday or graduation, an expression of sympathy for a lost loved one, and so much more.


Love and affection are commonly associated with flowers. If your significant other handed you a bouquet when you least expected it (or even if they gave them to you on your actual birthday).


That's usually a good sign. It's not just your imagination: studies have shown that people feel happier when looking at flowers. And as long as there have been florists, people have been associated with giving them to their partners as an act of love.


However, giving flowers to someone who isn't your romantic partner doesn't necessarily mean you're in love with them. Sometimes it's just about showing appreciation for a job well done.


Give them flowers that bloom all year round.


Giving friends flowers all year round and not just in their birthday month, you can give them a plant that blooms all year. Flowers like roses, tulips, orchids, and lilies are all examples of flowers that bloom all year round.


Some people prefer plants over cut flowers because they don't have to worry about watering them after a few days or weeks.


These plants are also great for the person who lives in an apartment or has access to little space for a flower vase in their home office. A great way to find out what's growing locally is by checking out local nurseries or farmers' markets where you live!


Another idea is to determine if your friend has allergies before purchasing any plant material. Some people experience allergic reactions from certain types of pollen that might be present on certain plants.


Give them flowers in a container they can keep.


Flowers are an excellent gift for any occasion. They are a fantastic way to express gratitude, show someone you care, brighten someone's day, or even cheer them up.


But what if the recipient of your flowers doesn't have the time or resources to keep them fresh? We've got you covered! Here are some tips for picking flowers that will last longer than just one day.


Don't be afraid to surprise them with flowers.


It's easy to give flowers when someone is sick or when you know they're having a bad day. But giving flowers on those days can be expected and will not have the same effect as giving them.  When they are happy or celebrating something.


This can be hard to do because it requires research and planning. But if you want your friend or family member to appreciate the gesture, it's worth it!


To give someone flowers when they least expect it. Try doing some research into their lives and find out what kind of events are coming up in their calendar. Then pick a flower that matches the occasion! For example: if they're celebrating getting an A+ on an exam, choose a rose. If they're celebrating their birthday with friends and family at their favorite restaurant, choose lilies, etcetera.


Give them flowers that match their personality.


When choosing flowers, many factors need to be considered for a loved one. The first is the holiday at hand, but you should also consider what kind of person they are and what colors, seasons, holidays, and flowers they prefer.


If you know your friend's favorite flower is a tulip or daffodil, send them that instead. If their favorite color is purple, opt for some lovely lavender-hued blooms. Or if they're into gardening and have an herb garden or vegetable patch in their backyard.

Maybe give them some roses, gerberas, or even both mixed together!


Don't forget to add a lovely card.


Don't forget to add a lovely card. This is an integral part of the gift and should include a personal message relevant to the occasion, relationship, and friendship. If it's for a birthday or anniversary, you can refer to this in your card - "Hope you have many more years ahead of you!" or "So happy we've been friends for x-amount of time now!"


For any other occasion (especially if it does not require flowers), try something like: "Just wanted to say I'm thinking of you." Or "I'm here if you need me."


Surprise your friend by sending a bouquet to work.


If you want to send flowers to work, consider the following:

  • Send your friend flowers on a particular day, like their birthday or anniversary. You could even send them flowers if they're just being promoted at work!
  • Send your friends flowers if they are away on vacation and you don't want them to miss out on any special occasions at home.

Bring your friend a few stems instead of an entire bouquet.


Bring your friend a few stems instead of an entire bouquet.


A few stems are a great way to show you care and give them something to decorate their home or office with. You can use the flowers to add color, but they also make it easier for your friend to switch out when they get tired of looking at the same thing every day.


Make sure you know what flowers your friend likes before choosing the arrangement.

  • Make sure you know what flowers your friend likes before choosing the arrangement.
  • Choose flowers that match the recipient's personality. If she's a soft-spoken, gentle soul, something delicate and subtle works well.
  • If she's an outgoing party girl, bold colors are likely to be appreciated.
  • Choose flowers that match the recipient's home. If they live in a small apartment with few decorations and few colors, it might seem like a waste to send them flowers with vibrant hues or complex shapes
  • But if they're decorating their home with bright reds and oranges this time of year (and have been since spring), those colors may be welcome!
  • Choose flowers that match the recipient's taste. It sounds obvious, but if your friend isn't into yellow roses.
  • It won't do any good for them if those are what appears on their doorstep (unless she has specifically requested yellow roses from you).
  • Likewise, if there are specific arrangements he would never want (or even some types of lilies he loves).  Then make sure not to send him those either!

Giving flowers to friends is a sweet way to show you care!


Flowers are a sweet way to tell friends that you care. Here's how:

  • Choose flowers that will be meaningful to your friend.

You can find out what kind of flowers her favorite color is or which season means something special to her. If she loves animals, try giving her a bouquet with some birds and butterflies mixed in. Think of giving your friend some flowers with pine cones and twigs sticking out of them if he loves winter sports like skiing and snowboarding.

  • Put the flowers in a vase when they arrive at their destination, so they look nice when delivered.
  • Don't forget to put water into the vase before adding the stems! You want your friend's gift not just to be appreciated but also appreciated for its beauty and meaning.



If you're still unsure which flowers to give your friend, why not send them a bouquet with a few stems of different types? That way, they can choose which ones suit their taste best. It's always better to go overboard on this kind of thing so your friend will feel loved and appreciated!
