When Should You Send Flowers? Tips on Dating

When men are seeking a romantic gift, flowers often prove the best option. By sending your lady some beautiful blossoms at the right time, you can earn yourself major points, showing her that you care and are thinking about her. If you fail to send flowers when the occasion warrants it, you might instead find yourself spending a night or two in the doghouse.

Birthdays
When your girlfriend’s birthday approaches, it is wise to commemorate the event by sending her a thoughtful floral gift. Order flowers to be delivered to her at work, making her the envy of her colleagues, or arrange an at-home delivery to delight her upon her return from the office. Send a standard bouquet or select something that is specifically intended for birthday celebrations, such as the Birthday Brilliance arrangement available through ProFlowers Florist Express service. The flowers are crafted to look like a birthday cake, complete with real candles.

Romantic Holidays
Some holidays are all about romance. When celebrating Valentine’s Day or Sweetest Day, flowers are the perfect choice. Giving your girl some delicate blooms ensures that she doesn’t feel left out of the love parade and proves to her that you didn’t forget the holiday entirely. On holidays, sending flowers to your girl’s workplace is a wise choice, as many other women may be getting floral gifts delivered and you don’t want your special someone to be left out of the excitement.

Anniversaries
While you will likely meet up with your lover on your anniversary, sending flowers before the big date is a great way to show her just how excited you are about the upcoming evening. Select flowers that ooze romance, such as red roses, to make it clear that your anniversary night will be a romantic one. Send a standard bouquet or make the flowers even more meaningful by selecting a number of blooms specifically relevant to your anniversary. For example, if you are celebrating a year and a half together, send her 18 blooms, one for each month you have had the pleasure of being in a relationship with her.

Get Well
If your girlfriend is under the weather, sending flowers is a thoughtful way to show her that you care. When sending get-well flowers, seek a cheerful and bright bouquet that will put a smile on her face. Try the Assorted Cheerful Gerbera Daisies from ProFlowers. This bouquet of 15 bold Gerbera daisy blooms is sure to brighten your girlfriend’s day and show her that you hope she makes her way back to health quickly.

Just Because
Sometimes the best floral gifts are those you give for no reason at all. If you want to really impress your special someone, don’t feel the need to wait for a reason to send flowers — instead, simply send them as a way to show just how much you love and care for her. When sending a just-because bouquet, include a romantic note telling your girlfriend how strongly you feel about her.
