A small bouquet of flowers is number one on our go-to list of gifts to say thank you. The list of occasions where we can send our appreciation and gratitude through flowers is endless. But some of our favourite ‘thank you’ occasions are:

  • To take along as a hostess gift for lunch or dinner.
  • For driving your kids to soccer training (or netball, football, hockey, volleyball, debating, choir – you get the picture!).
  • For teachers, principals, tutors, and school support staff at the end of term or end of the school year.
  • For a retiring colleague for their years of service and camaraderie.
  • For a kind act or deed or help with a particular task.

To say I love you

Saying ‘I love you’ with flowers is not limited to Valentine’s Day or wedding anniversaries! Expressing your love through a small bouquet of flowers is a wonderful way to show you care. Gift your seasonal bunch of flowers in person, or order online for delivery direct to your loved one’s door. 

Here are a few occasions on which you can say ‘I love you’ with flowers:

  • Valentine’s Day, of course!
  • Wedding anniversary or a significant anniversary in your relationship. 
  • Mothers’ Day or Fathers’ Day. The week leading into Mothers’ Day is our busiest of the year – but who said flowers can’t be for the Dads or father figures in your life too! 
  • Birthday. Whether for your best friend, partner, parent, grandparent, colleague or neighbour, an unexpected delivery of flowers will bring a smile and create happy memories. 
  • Christmas, especially when you may be far from a loved one at Christmastime.
