With Mom’s appreciation day coming up 11th May in the U.S.A, here is a post from Flora2000′s blog that I thought was appropriate here
Mother’s Day is an occasion that is celebrated all over the world. Every man has a mother, grandmother, wife, or other nurturing woman in his life who deserves recognition, love, and appreciation on this special day. There’s still no better way to show how much you care than by showering the special ladies in your life with flowers.
In fact, according to Ipsos-Insights 2005 Floral Trends Consumer Tracking Study, one-fifth of all floral purchases are made for Mother’s Day. However, when it comes to Mother’s Day floral purchases by gender, 64 percent are made by women, while only 36 percent are made by men.
Following are several common excuses why most men don’t buy flowers for Mother’s Day, along with some flower-buying advice from the experts at Flora2000.com, the leading online floral delivery specialists for overseas deliveries.
Excuse #1: I just don’t know what to get
When it comes to giving fresh flowers, mixed bouquets, roses, and carnations are the most popular choices for the Mother’s Day holiday. When buying, make certain the petals are firm and the buds have color, which are good signs that the flowers will eventually bloom. Outdoor garden plants and indoor houseplants such as geraniums, impatiens and azaleas are also great options for gift giving, because they are easy to care for while still providing wonderful color.
Excuse #2: I don’t know where to go to get flowers
Flowers are available everywhere, especially when a holiday is approaching. Bouquets can be bought at local florists, nurseries, grocery stores, farmers’ markets, roadside stands, online, and even in some convenience stores.
Excuse #3: My mother lives out of state or out of the country
Online floral delivery services were made just for this reason. Not only is it convenient to go online and click what is appealing to you, but most sites also offer searches by price, flower, occasion, etc. We at Flora2000.com not only deliver the United States but over 150 countries worldwide with premium floral arrangement deliveries.
Excuse #4: Flowers are too “cliché” to give at Mother’s Day, I want to give a unique gift
Throughout history, women have loved to receive flowers…and they still do! Flowers not only symbolize life, beauty, and love, but they also make the recipient feel special. Isn’t that the whole point of Mother’s Day?
