There’s always a time of year where some of us are having to start thinking about gifts, be it Christmas, birthdays, office parties or some other occasion. Maybe your child is leaving their favourite teacher this year. Whether it’s Valentine’s Day or Easter, the events fly past and you’ve probably got a few birthdays in the mix, too. Never mind when your sister in law’s cousin has a baby and your spouse is simply insisting you show interest. It never really ends, and picking presents along with the cost associated is just a whirlwind sometimes.
The hard part about gift ideas for colleagues, gift ideas for teachers, and well, gifts for anyone we might not know personally enough to buy a big ticket item for, is knowing exactly what to get.
Here at HomeTask, we think that flowers are the perfect touch – even for that kind neighbour that trims your hedges for you when she’s doing her own. The best part about flowers as a gift idea is that you can get them delivered straight to the person (and HomeTask has you covered for flower delivery in Brisbane) and each bouquet has its own meaning, so you don’t even have to worry about finding out their favourite. Simply send out your lilies to say thank you and the job is done, with a thankful recipient knowing you appreciate all they do.
A bright bouquet of flowers is thought of as the perfect gift, whether it’s an occasion or a sentiment, flower delivery says it all for you. Here at HomeTask, we offer flower delivery to Brisbane and surrounding areas right when you need it the most. Even though all of the arrangements on the market are pretty, did you know that each bouquet has its own meaning? Use our HomeTask Flower Cheat Sheet below to pick the right bouquet for every occasion, and never sweat the gift shop again.
Need a bouquet delivered to express your condolences? Lilies and orchids are a fine choice for this occasion, and if they’re not the recipients’ style you can stick to white, calm colours for this one. Zen arrangements are perfect for a sympathy bouquet, but unless you know the receiver’s favourite colour is yellow, steer clear of it as it generally the colour of happiness.
Tulips and Orchids are the perfect congratulations flower, and they’re really, really pretty when they’re coupled together. The common sunflower is bright and cheery and also makes a great statement for happy occasions.
Roses suit nearly every occasion, but a single red rose will declare your love for the receiver as clear as day. Asters and Irises are also great choices signifying romance or an anniversary – but again stay away from yellow as this is the colour of friendship!
If this is the birthday for a friend, you can finally pick a yellow arrangement. Representing happiness and friendship, a daisy or daffodil might be the perfect pick. Avoid yellow carnations though – these signify disappointment. Each month also has its own special flower, but if you don’t want to get into that then a daisy is a safe bet.
Sometimes just saying it is not enough, so say it with flowers! For a thank you flower delivery, it’s acceptable to choose any variety if it is the recipient’s favourite type. Not sure which they prefer? Lilies are the perfect thank you choice.
Yellow flowers are the perfect choice if you’re wanting to send a friend a bouquet just because you can. Yellow flowers signify happiness and companionship in a platonic sense, while flowers like Alstroemeria also known as Inca Lilies signify devotion, so are appropriate for long “friend-aversary’s”. If it’s a new friendship, a Zinnia is always a great choice and look fabulous and cheery for the receiver as well.
It’s pretty nerve racking imagining yourself showing up with a rose and scaring them away, right? If you want to give a flower on a date, orchids or tulips are foolproof and always well received! These both come in a variety of striking colours as well, so if you can find out their favourite colour before the date you might score extra points for remembering, and delivering a flower in their preference.
Okay so we’re not nervous any more. Time to bring out the roses! Even better, have the roses delivered to their door in Brisbane before the date. HomeTask can make that fine impression for you.
Know someone who suffers with hay fever? Maybe showing up to their door and filling their house with pollen isn’t the best move, and might have your friend or loved one sneezing the next two weeks away. A succulent or cactus is a fantastic choice, especially when not in flower. The recipients can also keep these little guys forever with minimal care as opposed to a cutting that will wither in time. Other plants that have little to no pollen content include begonia and clematis, and are totally allergy-friendly for gifting flowers.
Why should you opt for flower delivery instead of taking them to the recipient yourself? Well, we believe the element of surprise is one of the best parts about receiving flowers, a personalised note and a knock on the door can sometimes make someone’s entire week better. We also understand that sometimes it’s just a really busy time of year for you, so a flower gift is a great way of saying, “Hey, I’m thinking of you,” without having to find the time to drop by when there is simply no time to spare.
