You Know What Peaks My Interest? UNIQUENESS
I literally see hundreds of flower arrangements every month. After having spent a significant amount of time in the floral industry, my passion for flowers remains but it takes a little bit more than it used to take to make me take a second glimpse...or a third...or tell someone else about it.
I'm not alone in this. All consumers-shoppers-buyers-gift givers want to hit the nail on the head and give the perfect gift. It's just finding that diamond in the rough that occasionally presents a problem. That's why we at Flower Shop Network try so hard to regularly replenish your idea bank. I got to thinkin' about it this afternoon (boy I sound southern today) and realized what really jumps out at people like me when we shop for flowers and gifts. We want something unique. Gift givers want something tried-and-true for the most part but with an edge. In other words, we want the gift that we know they'll like but with that little extra something that will make them remember the gift, the occasion and the sender.
Need some visual examples of unique flower arrangements and gifts?
I have to say that I love the "Exotic Floral Vase" arrangement of tropical fresh flowers. To be honest, it made me want to run out and grab a seafood dinner. (The red anthuriums remind me of lobster pinchers.) It's uniquely shaped inside a clear vase. The flowers are colorful enough that they need no dressing up. They speak for themselves.
Plus, how often do you really see tropical flower bouquets like this? It's easy to find a carnation, rose or tulip bouquet. Tropical fresh flowers are unique enough by themselves. This bouquet just has an architectural feeling of clean lines and solid colors that is easy to enjoy whether you are into art and style or form and function.
I've written before on how much fun flower animals are. Rabbits, puppies. Doesn't matter. Animal shapes made of flowers are too cute to pass up.
The two little girls in my life are both big animal lovers. Most kids are. That's why flower animals make great Easter gifts for kids, Valentines Day gifts for kids, even birthday gifts for children. If you can think of an occasion that merits a gift, try sending flowers like these.
Even if you plan to give something else later, this is a fun way to treat your child to something nice at school. It's always fun to receive gifts in front of classmates. In this way, your child is able to have all of the birthday attention he/she craves and more.
I know. Essentially it's just a few pieces of greenery wrapped, tied and trimmed to form a special shape. However, that's the difference between a regular gift and a unique gift. I probably wouldn't have looked twice at a simple pink rose bouquet in a tall pink vase. I looked multiple times at the "You Have My Heart" Valentines Day arrangement simply because it uses heather in a unique way. That's all it takes to make someone pause for a moment. Give them what they want and then a little extra.
Not to be cheesy, but forming unique shapes and lines with flowers is enough to make an ordinary gift into an Extraordinary gift. All it takes is that little extra. Ok, I guess I failed on the cheesy scale but the point is the same. Unique shapes just work.
It's not just the container that makes me like arrangements like the "Candy Bouquet" gift basket. However, it had a huge role. Unique vases and containers make it fun to send flowers. You just want to be there when your buddy receives the gift and smiles.
My friends know about my sweet tooth so candy gift baskets are right up there on the list of "give to Brynn" gift ideas. Candy bouquets can come in many containers though. They can come in a bag and I'd be happy but I wouldn't be thrilled until I saw a smiling container staring back at me.
Unique containers and vases work wonders when sending flowers also. The containers become keepsakes that the recipient can store for years and think of you every time it's taken out. I want my friends to think of me and know that it was that little something extra that brought me to their minds.
