Why A Beautiful Bouquet of Flowers Is One of The Best Christmas Presents You Can Choose

With Christmas just around the corner, you will no doubt be finalising the finishing touches and preparations for the big day and hopefully, you have most of your Christmas presents bought and wrapped.

However, you would not be to blame if you still had a few un-ticked names of loved ones left on your Christmas list, so here, for your relief and reading pleasure, is exactly why a beautiful bouquet of flowers is one of the best Christmas presents you can choose to give. 

The History of Giving a Loved One Flowers

Essentially, giving another human being whom you have a connection with (or, indeed, would like to have a connection with in the future) is purely an act of showing you care, showing your sorry, or basically conveying how you feel. 

Back in the days of ancient Egypt, Greece, Rome, and China, the gift of flowers was truly ingratiated with ordinary people’s social customs, and this tradition is still very much alive and well in 2021. 

During the reign of Queen Victoria, the expression of one’s emotions was considered to be, frankly, plain rude, and instead, it was much more ‘British’ to express how one felt silently with the presentation of a bunch of flowers.

Flowers are now given to another for a range of different reasons from anniversaries, weddings, and birthdays to get well soon sentiments and funerals. 

Flowers Provide a Host of Benefits to Mental Health & Wellbeing

As well as the obvious expression of sentiment and love, flowers also offer a host of different practical benefits to one’s emotional health and wellbeing. 

Such benefits include, but are in no way limited to:

  • The soothing scents and aesthetic beauty enhance feelings of peace, calm, and tranquillity
  • The increase in oxygen levels in the air make for benefits to your memory and concentration
  • Flowers have been proven to stimulate feelings of increased levels of mood and happiness
  • The presence of flowers in a room has been found to increase feelings of compassion and togetherness

Flowers Are Loved by All

Another fabulous advantage of giving someone you know a beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers this Christmas time is the fact that no matter how well you know the person or indeed not, they make the perfect present. 

Flowers Can Truly Complement & Even Enhance Home Décor 

If you are buying a bunch of flowers this Christmas for a close friend or family member, you will presumably have either visited their home many times or else at least have a strong idea of their personal preferences and tastes when it comes to colours and colour schemes. 

If your grandma’s living room has a base in the colour purple, for example, choosing a bouquet consisting of Purple Velvets, Wandering Jews, Pilea, Purple Queens, and Purple Oxalis will not only make your cherished grandma feel loved but also will look absolutely fabulous on the coffee table.
