There is something special happening, but you are on the other side of the country–or, perhaps, even on the other side of the world. You want to mark the occasion, whether it is special only to you and another, or to a great many people, but what do you do when you can’t be there yourself? One of the best ways to let someone know that you are thinking of them, even when you can’t there in person, is to send them a gift of flowers. A floral bouquet, no matter how simple or elaborate, is the one thing that brings a smile to many faces.


Birthdays are not only for the young, yet many times an older person’s birthday is treated as an afterthought. If it’s thought of at all. If you have someone in your life who will be celebrating a birthday, no matter their age, send them a bouquet of flowers to let them know you remembered. Add in balloons, or a stuffed animal, a box of candies–or even all three–and have the surprise gift delivered right to their door.


Some anniversaries, like those for marriages, are better remembered than others. Sending an anniversary bouquet to friends (or spouses!) can often make up for your inability to be there in person… but don’t stop with just wedding anniversaries. Other important events no doubt deserve remembrance as well. The first day you met your other half; the one year anniversary of beginning a dream job, or any number of other events can be reasons to get in touch with your local florist and send a special gift.

In Sympathy

Not all events are happy ones, and sometimes that is when friends and family need the most support. A sympathy bouquet can bring comfort, even if you cannot be there to offer it in person. It doesn’t take much to add a little color and brightness to someone’s life, even when it’s not the best of times.

These are just a few times when you might want to be somewhere in person, but cannot. Flowers can’t replace you, of course, but they can give an uplift to someone’s spirit, and let them know you care. If you are unsure if an occasion warrants flowers, or which would be the best to send in any case, take the time to talk to one of the florists in our floral marketplace. They can help you in choosing the perfect gift of flowers and accessories to fit any occasion.
