The Two Biggest Things to Consider When Sending a Floral Surprise

Sending flowers is a wonderful gesture that can make someone feel loved. A floral surprise shows that you care about the recipient and are thinking about him or her. To ensure that your floral surprise has the effects you want, make sure that it is from the heart and that you time the delivery properly.

Make It from the Heart

Anyone can send flowers, and they are sure to be a hit. You can make your floral surprise even more meaningful, however, by demonstrating that it is a gift from the heart. Customize it to show that you thought carefully about the recipient’s preferences when you were selecting the arrangement. Ask another friend for advice on aspects such as the recipient’s favorite colors and flowers if you do not already know this.

Another way to personalize your gift is to consider carefully where the flowers should be delivered. Some people are shy and prefer to receive flowers in the privacy of their homes, or to come home to a lovely bouquet that has been left on the doorstep. Other might enjoy receiving the flowers as a special delivery while they are at work.

Timing Is Important

When you are sending a floral surprise, you want it to arrive on time. The surprise is much more impactful when it arrives on the person’s birthday, anniversary, or other special event. Even if you are sending the flowers “just because,” having them arrive at the proper moment can make the recipient appreciate them more. You do not want the flowers to arrive too early or late, and you also want to consider factors such as whether the recipient will be available to receive the flowers when they come.

If you are picking up the flowers and bringing them to your friend yourself, plan ahead so that you do not risk being late to meet your friend and present the surprise. Call us ahead of time and we will help you create the perfect arrangement on the spot. If you are ordering the flowers to be delivered to your friend, check our delivery schedule ahead of time so you can figure out how early you need to order the flowers.
