How to Pick the Best Flowers for Any Occasion

List: Posted: 03/04/11

Are you looking for a great gift idea for a loved one, coworker, or someone who helped you out during a tough time?  Flowers are considered the ideal gift for almost any occasion.  Finding the right flowers for the occasion is important, however.  Some flowers, such as red roses, carry a traditional meaning that isn’t appropriate for every situation.

When purchasing a bouquet from the florist for someone you don’t know very well, you need to consider if they have allergies.  Low pollen varieties of flower are the best options in this situation, and there are plenty of great choices to select from.  Lilies and orchids both have a very low pollen count, as do tea roses.  Best of all, these flowers look beautiful, last a while, and make excellent gift choices.

If you are looking for more options in terms of flowers that won’t set off allergies and that make excellent gift options, you can’t overlook carnations.  These are very popular in bouquets and can serve for a variety of special occasions, such as Mother's Day.  Hydrangeas make good options as well as irises and roses.  You will want to avoid chrysanthemums, tulips, and daffodils, as well as grasses to help make the bouquet more attractive.

When you choose the right flowers for your recipient to match the occasion, their tastes, and their allergies, you will find that they can truly be the perfect gift.  Flowers are ideal for almost any occasion and are a great way to say anything from "I love you" to "I'm sorry," or even just a simple "hello".
