What Do Women Prefer, Flowers Or Gifts?

man-giving-flowers-to-woman2

Research has shown that 96% of women like to receive flowers when they’re not expecting them. It isn’t always necessary for you to have a reason to send flowers, sometimes flowers can be sent simply.

If you don’t have an occasion to celebrate, then here’s your chance to create one.

Women love surprises, and they love men who take time out to surprise them, a whole lot more. With international flower delivery, sending surprises has become easier than ever.

A woman appreciates the fact that her man was trying to do something meaningful for her. Flowers make simple yet meaningful gifts, their worth can’t be measured in money. It is the thought that counts. Bouquets come across as symbols of love and affection that last but for a few days. It’s a completely impractical gift, and that is why it makes more sense to a woman, because it is beyond barter.

For women, the cost of the gift doesn’t matter too much, but the thought that has gone behind it.

Getting an impromptu gift means a lot to women. It gives them confidence in the relationship they share with their man and also in themselves. It gives her an assurance that her man took time out to think about her and do something thoughtful, and that he doesn’t need a special occasion to surprise her. And this feeling for a woman, is more important than the satisfaction that she gets from a material gift.

A floral gift has more value when the man takes time out to choose a flower arrangement that fits his special woman. So men, go beyond the traditional red and pink roses. Use your imagination; send a her a fresh bouquet of lilies or orchids. If you are planning to surprise her, don’t let it be a typical one.

Flowers smell fresh; feel fresh and women feel wonderful that someone has cared enough to send them an unexpected floral surprise.

Women love being the cause of envy. She’ll love being the center of attraction at her office bay as that proud bunch of blooms; you gifted her, sparkles on her desk.

To make it even more special, men can send in a hand-written note with the bunch of blooms. In today’s age of smart phones, emotions are being spilled on chat applications in overflowing quantity. But in contrast, a simple thoughtful handwritten note would mean so much.

Although flowers aren’t as lasting as a dress or jewelery, they have their own value because they give a different kind of joy. The joy of flowers is short-lived and that is exactly what makes it more precious.

Every time she sees the flowers you sent, she will think of you and will be so much in love with you. Women are romantic beings, who are perpetually in love with the idea of romance. A dreamy reminder like a bouquet of flowers is surely something they’ll love over anything else.

The most important thing to know is that, men; you simply can’t go wrong with flowers. All you have to do is select a bouquet you think she’ll love, and flora2000.com will have it delivered in the most pristine condition. And the best part is, you’ll get all the credit for the surprise.

How Flowers Help Long Distance Loving

unitedLoving is tough; long-distance loving, only tougher. It’s important to give meaning to your love life, and more so in a long distance relationship, because you’re stripped of your most basic necessity of relationship-building i.e. meeting each other.

Even if you can’t be present, there are plenty of ways to make your presence felt. It’s not necessary that you spend a lot of money, what’s important is the amount of effort you put in to making your presence felt. While some choose expensive jewellery, electronics or other gifts to surprise their sweethearts, experts have suggested flowers especially in the case of long-distance relationships.

People have been expressing love with flowers for thousands of years. The only difference today is that it’s become a lot a easier to send your wishes across the globe. In the month of love, you are surely going to miss your special someone and there’s no better way to make up for your absence than by sending flowers. Planning well in advance for occasions and a timely delivery makes a floral gift doubly worth. A personalized letter makes it even better.

Choosing Flowers
Choosing flowers based on the significance and meaning they have to you as a couple is a genuine way to show that you care. Pinks, reds and whites remain the traditional favorite of couples. However a mixed colored bunch or radiant contrast of any two uncommon colors also makes a great choice. For extra special occasions, you can add a cake or perfume to the floral delivery.

So what if you aren’t there to wish her/him a good morning or a goodnight you can always make your presence felt with fresh flowers. At flora2000.com we give you the chance to keep reminders for all special occasions, i.e. birthdays, anniversaries etc. You need not restrict your floral gifts to his/her home alone, you can surprise him/her on a dull Monday with a blooming bunch of posies too. We undertake international flower delivery to 190 countries, so it doesn’t matter whether you’re miles apart. We’ll make sure we deliver your gifts on time and in the most pristine conditions.

So go ahead and book a beautiful bunch of flowers for your special one.

8 Helpful Tips For Long Lasting Valentine’s Day Flowers

Do you feel all dreamy when you look at the flowers your beau gifted you and wish that they’d last forever? Sadly they don’t. Before they turn into a fossilized bookmark, enjoy the sight of them while they last with these simple helpful tips. Buy another bunch once they die.

Soda Can Be Useful Too

That unhealthy bottle of soda lying in your fridge can be to put to some good use. Pour about 4 spoons of soda into the water in your flower vase. The sugar in the soda will make your flowers last longer.

Tip: Use clear sodas , unless you like your base to look colorful.

Hairspray

Your favorite grooming accessory can also double up as a flower preserving agent. At a distance of a foot, spurt some hairspray on to the undersides of the leaves and petals. The flowers will continue looking fresh for a longer span.

pink-beautiful-flowers3

Apple Cider Vinegar

When it comes to flower care, you don’t really have to look beyond your hair care routine.  Apart from taking care of your skin and hair apple cider vinegar can also double up as a preserving agent. Mix the water in the vase with 2 spoons of sugar and 2 spoons of apple cider vinegar. Change the water daily and add a fresh mixture of vinegar and sugar to the water.

Vodka

Apart from keeping your spirits high, the vodka will also make your cut flowers last long. Mix two spoonfuls of vodka with 2 spoonfuls of sugar and add it to the water in your flower vase.  Keep changing the vodka and sugar mixture to keep the flowers fresh.

Aspirin

Crushed aspirin in water is the most common and most effective advice for preserving cut flowers. Only tip we’d like to add is, don’t forget to change the water with a fresh new crushed aspirin everyday.

Bleach

The only reason why flowers die quickly is because of the bacterial growth in the water that they’re stored in. Mix a spoon of sugar with ¼ teaspoon of bleach and add it to the water in which the flowers are kept.

A Penny A Day Keeps The Flowers Fresh

Sorry can’t rhyme, but the copper in the penny acts as an acidifier and will stop the bacteria from spreading in the stagnant water.

Sugar

Sugar in itself is enough to keep flowers fresh. If you don’t have any of the fancy things we mentioned above, just add 3 spoons of sugar everyday and don’t forget to change the water daily.

We hope your flowers last long this Valentine’s season and in case they don’t we hope your beau sends you another fresh bunch of flowers. With online flower delivery it’s all so easy. :D Have a splendid Valentine’s week lovers!

6 Quick And Easy New Year Decor Ideas

There’s nothing quite like welcoming the New Year with a bang. And what’s New Year’s without some fun home decor. Below are 10 fuss free decor ideas.

Tinsel New Year

Cut out “2015″ in cardboard. Wrap it up in tinsel of gold or silver (your choice. Gold looks fancy though).  Add hooks to each of the digits and hang them on a thin string.

Nye-Wedding-Ideas-02
Cover up the string with some more tinsel, some of the tinsel can hang loosely. This is another decor idea for your alcohol deck. Picture has been used for representation purpose only.

Glitter Bottles

Let your sparkling wine, sparkle literally this New Year’s. Spread liquid adhesive on your champagne bottle, leaving 1/4th at the top.

29a6eb970ced96fe6a07ed555e1434f0
Sprinkle glitter over the adhesive. Spray the adhesive again and add another layer of glitter. Do this till it’s completely covered in glitter. We recommend Briar Creek Cellar’s Chardonnay, makes a fine drink. You can book it here.

Bubbly Spirit

Liven up the wall behind your alcohol deck with balloons.

the-cream-event-la-8
Use balloons that stand in contrast to the color on your wall and blow them in different sizes (for the love of asymmetry).

Glitter Hats

Add a dash of glitter to your regular party hats with a little glitter and tinsel garland. Spread glue all over the hat and sprinkle powdered fine glitter all over it.

white-pink-and-sky-color-Party-hats
Stick a tinsel garland around the rim of the hat and a cut out a half an inch of the garland and stick to the top of the hat.

Shiny Lanterns

Spray adhesive across your lantern.

glitter2
Sprinkle glitter all over. Repeat till your lantern is completely covered in glitter.

Glitter Glasses

Surprise your guests with some more glitter. Spread glue asymmetrically across your champagne and wine glasses and sprinkle them with glitter.

Make sure you this a day or two in advance, you don’t want your guests to consume glitter with their champagne.
