Flowers to welcome a loved one home for the holidays

Given the nature of life and business today, many people around the world have loved ones living and working abroad. Over the holidays, many people return home for a visit or even permanently. For their friends and family, there’s no greater joy than welcoming their loved one home for Christmas. Whether you welcome them at the airport or at a welcome home party, you will want to present them with a welcome home gift. This is even more the case when you’re welcoming them home over the festive season.

Fresh flowers are the best gift no matter when you welcome your friend. You can wait at the airport with flowers in hand or you can attend a welcome home party and take a fresh bouquet along for your loved one.

When choosing welcome home flowers, it’s a good idea to consider what the recipient will enjoy. This means that you should think about such things as their favourite flowers and their favourite colour. If you know the answers to one or both of these questions, then it will be that much easier to shop around for the best bunch of flowers. If you know that your loved one prefers pink, then you can choose a pink bouquet. If you know that they love roses, then you can send pink roses or at least choose a bouquet that includes pink roses. If you’re not sure about their favourite colour but you know that they love carnations, for example, then you can send a bouquet of mixed carnations.

While placing your flower order, take note of any specials and deals. Online florists often include free chocolates, a free vase, or other products that add value. If you like a particular bouquet bur it does not include anything extra, you can choose from a list of optional extras and include as many of these items as you like. So, for example, you can order flowers and add a bottle of bubbly and chocolates to your order!

Even though you are making the flower delivery in person, you should not neglect to include a personal message. You can choose to do so by writing in the card provided by your florist or you can add your own card. Either way, make sure that you give your written message plenty of thought. Your loved one will most likely hang on to this card for years to come and your words are the most meaningful and powerful gift of all.
