It doesn’t matter what situation you are in, flowers are always a great way to surprise people (Yes, I meant both, men and women). You do not need to spend hours remembering what kinds of things they love or have requested from you in the past. You can never go wrong with flowers.
Think about the time when you just got into a relationship with someone and you didn’t know what they would like to receive as a gift. Just get flowers and you will be alright.
So now you might be thinking, “Great point Paula. But which flower should I gift them?”
If you are ever confused about that, just go with roses. They symbolize love and passion. And who doesn’t like some of that in their relationship.
But before you go ahead and pull the trigger on that decision, you need to make sure that you are gifting these flowers to the right person. If it is a colleague at your work place, then it probably wouldn’t be a great idea to gift them roses because that might send a wrong signal. In that case, you might want to go with something friendly, yet intimate, like a yellow rose, or an orange rose, etc.
That way, you will be able to keep things friendly, yet they will remember that you gifted them something special. It will be a win-win situation. And you also didn’t have to spend hours researching and going through their social media to find out that ONE thing that they love the most.
One the other hand, if you are going through a difficult period of time in your relationship and you want to liven up the things, you should go with lilies, which are the flowers of reconciliation of the lovers. These can send a strong signal that you are open to move forward and make things interesting and spontaneous again if they are as well.
I have seen so many men go for lilies and they were happier than ever. Their relationships just took a U-turn and the next thing you know, they are going out for a weekend trip and having an amazing time.
While this might be a great advice if you are looking to save some time, you also want to make sure that you at least do enough research to know that the other person does not have any allergies from flowers. Because the last thing you would want, is them having an allergic reaction to a beautiful flower you gifted them.
So, keep that in mind and you will be alright.
