Florist Appreciation Day is not a real holiday, but perhaps it should be. Many people depend on their florist or online flower delivery service just as much as they depend on their mailman or their gardener. They may tip their mailman every so often or leave some small gift in the mailbox at Christmastime, but what do they do for their floral service providers?
There are many reasons which a florist needs to be thanked sincerely from time to time:
They save many marriages by providing a way for men to smooth over problems with their wives. They make relationships stronger by providing tokens of love and adoration that can easily and affordable be sent at any time. They are always available through online flower delivery services, which is an extreme convenience to the many who work the same hours as a florist. They allow gifts to be sent from miles away when you can’t physically be present for something special.
This list could go on and on and on. For some people a florist is someone they stop in to see from time to time, but don’t spend much time thinking about. Others spend a lot more time in their local florist’s shop or perhaps browsing through bouquets and other gifts with online flower delivery services.
For those who spend more of their time consumed in the world of flower delivery, a florist is someone who deserved to be thanked. This is someone or perhaps a company that has helped them reach out to those they love despite their hectic work schedule or the fact that they spend more time traveling than they spend at home. These are people who have been able to keep their marriages or love lives going thanks to the services provided by their chosen florist.
So, Florist Appreciation Day is a really great idea! Unfortunately, it isn’t a real holiday. The good news is most florists and online flower delivery services would consider repeat business to be the best form of support and flattery. They will take another order for a flower bouquet and a couple balloons over a one-time tip any day.
So, if your florist has been there in times of need and helped you through some awkward or even sad times in your life, your appreciation can be shown through repeat orders. There is always someone you love who maybe doesn’t know how much they are loved. There is always someone who is just on your mind for some reason that would love to know they are on your mind.
There is this stereotype that flower delivery services are for lovers, spouses, girlfriends, and “the unspoken other.” This is entirely untrue! Men enjoy receiving flower deliveries just as much as women and you can send flowers to anyone you care about even if they aren’t romantically connected to you.
Why not bless your grandmother with a bouquet on her birthday? It has probably been years since anyone has thought of her in that way! What about flowers and gourmet cookies for your sister when she graduates college or your childhood best friend when he passes the bar?
There are always occasions in your life when flower delivery comes in handy. You can bet your florist will always be there when those special times come up.
