Get Well Soon Gifts and Flowers Guide

Mar 10, 2008
When one thinks of flower delivery, many different occasions come to mind, both very happy and sad. People typically order flowers as Get Well gifts, for those who have lost loved ones, and also as thank you gifts. But flowers are most used to commemorate special events such as birthdays, graduations, and anniversaries.

The flower delivery should consider the type of occasion but also give evidence of the offerer and the beneficiary to be more intimate and perceived as a special gesture and not just an unimaginative present. That infers having details about their taste. A florist shop in the vicinity might know what kind of flower they care for in case you don't know the person enough.

Before sending flowers to a friend or relative in the hospital call ahead to make sure that flowers are allowed in their room. Even when recuperating at home some patients should not be around live plants and flowers. In these cases your florist can suggest alternatives such as artificial flowers or flower art crafted in crystal or other media.

As a nice touch, it is good to have the flower delivery in a special container such as a vase, basket or planter, so that the gift will last longer than the cut flowers. Many people believe that a live plant is a more appropriate gift for someone who is ill or older, since it implies that they will enjoy a longer life. A low maintenance plant is the best choice for a gift for someone who is sick.

You can personally arrange for flower delivery by stopping by a local florist who knows what you want, or by calling the florist on the phone. However, you can now order flowers online to be delivered almost anywhere in the world. You may want to start with the web site of your favorite florist, using their delivery network. You may also decide to look for online flower delivery on your own.

It is important to give your florist accurate and complete information when arranging a flower delivery. Make sure to let your provider know when the recipient is likely to be home or at the place where the gift is to be delivered. If delivering flowers to a hospital, give your florist an alternate home address in case delivery is not possible. Many florists will check to make sure a patient has not been discharged. Make sure your florist provides this service.

When ordering flowers online or by phone to be delivered in another city it is possible that the arrangement will not be exactly what you ordered. The local florist will do their best to replicate what you ordered but if their own inventory of flowers does not make this possible they are allowed to make substitutions of comparable value.
