So What's A Good Gift For That Other December Holiday?
Well, there are several December holidays that come to mind. Christmas, Kwanzaa, and Hanukkah take the lead in my mind. Hanukkah (Chanukah) and Kwanzaa are major holidays that are very understated and tend to take a backseat to Christmas. However, these are very popular holidays that merit the same kindred spirit and celebration.
But what do you do when you need to give a gift for these holidays but you've never celebrated them? Well, there are a couple of ideas. First, hide under your Christmas tree and hope that everyone forgets about giving gifts this year. When that fails, call your local florist.
Hanukkah bouquets are all the rage this year. Flowers are very traditional and fit the bill for every occasion. However, Hanukkah is that special Jewish tradition that is celebrated for eight (8) days. While a new floral gift each day may not be exactly right for you, marking one of those days with a colorful Hanukkah flower arrangement is a great way to spend the holiday.

But what about Kwanzaa? Kwanzaa isn't as lengthy a celebration and is in no way Jewish. This African holiday is neither political nor religious. It's not a substitute for Christmas. It does however inspire African Americans to reflect on the values of traditional African families. So what goes along with that? You guessed it. Flowers.
However, ask your local florist to make this Kwanzaa bouquet a bit more special. Red black and green ribbons wrapped around an red black and green arrangement is a neat idea. Another good gift idea is to send a pretty vase arrangement with a sweet card. It never fails to inspire and it lets the recipient know that you care.
So you see, it doesn't matter much whether you celebrate these holidays or not. Sometimes doing a little research is fun too. Sending a unique gift along with a colorful arrangement of flowers is a great way to show your friends or loved ones just how valued you consider them.
