1. Fresh flowers brighten up homes for the festive season

2. Fresh flowers don't add clutter
When giving a gift be mindful of the fact that it will add clutter and take up space so it better be beautiful or very much useful. Fresh flowers don't add any clutter, yet they become a showstopping piece while they are blooming. Native flowers are especially long lasting and admired for their longevity.

3. Fresh flowers won't make them fat!
Not another box of chocolates! Give a gift of beauty and fragrance instead of the extra sugary calories, they will appreciate it so much when they're not slaving the box of chocolates off on the treadmill in the new year!

4. Flowers make people happy and content
Research shows that having flowers in the home instantly adds contentment whenever they are seen. Flowers are that extra touch which have very real emotional and nostalgic ties. They bind us to our memories and by their very colour and texture, bring emotional well-being. When people receive flowers they often express feelings of delight and gratitude. They also report increased feelings of life-satisfaction.

5. You don't have to know someone well to give them flowers

The gift of flowers is universally well-received. When you want to give a gift but don't know the person or colleague very well then flowers are a great option. The gift of flowers strengthens connections in a very real way. Flowers have been universally cherished throughout history and continue to be.

"Gift recipients experience compelling connections with givers, and the positive link is particularly evident in the exchange of flowers. A successful person is not necessarily someone with a lot of money and material goods, but rather someone who is in tune with people and knows how to touch their hearts. I can think of no other item besides flowers that evokes such positive feelings and perceptions for both the giver and receiver."
