Flowers make a great gift and one of the reasons is that they’re so flexible. We all know when they’re appropriate and most of us think we should send flowers more often than we do. And yet some people don’t send flowers at all. They claim that it’s pointless since they just die anyway; but we disagree. We think that someone who thinks that flowers are pointless is missing the point completely.
Flowers represent more than just a few pretty petals; they are a vehicle for expressing feelings and wishes for someone. It’s for these people that we write below the 8 best reasons to send flowers.
Reason #1: Sympathy
If something has recently gone wrong in someone’s life then you might want to send them flowers. It’s a nice touch to let them know that you are thinking of them in their time of need and that they’re not alone.
Reason #2: Stuck in Hospital
Being stuck in hospital for any time at all isn’t fun. No one enjoys being sick and hospitals aren’t known for being the most enjoyable locations, so having flowers sent to your room can really life your spirits and make your day. They let you know that others care about you and improved mood can really make your stay in hospital as unpleasant as possible.

It doesn’t matter how old you are, birthdays are still a special day. Perhaps it’s a holdover from our younger years when our birthdays were treated like truly special days, but as you get older they lose some of their sheen.
