Women think its lovely to be surprised with a beautiful bouquet from time to time but what one person thinks is beautiful leaves another person cold.
Your choice may be bang on target, but you may miss completely. Whatever the case, obviously you’ll no doubt still receive a big thank you either way, but it’s still good to know what her favourite flower is, because it makes your gift so much more meaningful if you don’t just give her any old flower.
If you know what her favourite flower is, you’re definitely going to be her hero. If you don’t know, here are some tips to help you find out.
Check carefully what she brings home herself regularly. OK, but how do you know what the flowers in the vase are if you’ve got no personal interest in the things? You can probably recognise a rose, but there are many different types of flower, take a look at our Flower finder or perhaps just ask her?
A best friend, mother or sister can be a great source of information. Women know a lot about one another. We like to share our favourite recipes, we wear one another’s clothes and we know each other’s favourite hang-outs. There a good chance that the women around her can at least point you in the right direction.
If you’re really clueless, don’t worry! Your expert BFA member florist can make up a lovely design even with the a vague idea of what colours or styles she likes.
A word of reassurance: it’ll be fine anyway. It’s the gesture that counts, and ultimately that’s worth far more.
