As we all know, flowers can be gifted for many different occasions. From birthdays to anniversaries, flowers are always on the scene. Another very common occasion for which gifting flowers is the best is the birth of a new baby. A joyous occasion such as the birth of a baby deserves flowers, as they brighten up the place and ooze with happiness. This article will guide you into making the right decisions about how to gift flowers, what flowers to consider and how to pay attention to additional details.
The first thing you need to decide is on the colour of the flowers you wish to gift. You can go traditional and buy pink flowers if the baby is a girl, or blue flowers (which are rare but available) for a baby boy. However, nowhere is it stated that these are the only available colours for babies. You could mix things up by choosing a combination of colours e.g. white and pink for a baby or red and blue for a boy – the options are endless!
If you do not fancy the idea of picking flowers according to the gender of the baby, you have the option of buying a colour bouquet, or a classic all white bouquet which portrays innocence and beauty. This will leave the new mother very happy and grateful. If you are very confused and cannot make a decision, ask your florist or whoever is working in the flower department in the department store, and they will be glad to assist you.
The flowers you choose are also important, since each flower portrays a different message. If you buy flowers which are delicate and release a lot of fragrance, chances are they will not last particularly long, which is undesirable. You do not want to gift a new mother flowers which are going to die before she even gets home from the hospital! In order to ensure that the new mom enjoys her flowers for as long as possible, pick flowers which are hardy and will last longer. Once again your florist can assist you if you’re not quite sure which flowers are right.
The most obvious type of flower to gift for the birth of a baby are Carnations. They are traditional and have been gifted to new mothers for many decades. Their ruffled appearance and pleasant smells make them so popular. However, if you want your flowers to stand out amongst the rest, you can move away from tradition and pick another flower such as the Gerber Daisies, which are simple, yet beautiful and can last a long time. Not only are these available in different colours, thus giving you the option to choose, but they are also cheaper thus saving you a few pennies, which everyone loves to do.
If you do not wish to send a bouquet of flower basket on its own, there are many inexpensive, little gifts that can be sent along. Flowers can be combined with anything, which is why they are such an excellent gift. It is common to combine flowers with another gift, especially if they are being gifted to celebrate the birth of a new baby. Popular additional gifts include balloon i.e. “It’s a Girl/It’s a Boy” balloons, teddy bears or other stuffed animals, baby picture frames, baby rattles etc. Once again, the options are endless, and you can be as unique or traditional as you wish to be.
Flowers can be enjoyed by the mother and father, making them the perfect gift. It also shows your love and care for the mother and father, rather than just the baby alone.
