So you’re going somewhere else for Thanksgiving. You’re in good company. Nearly 50 million people traveled 50 miles or more to break bread at someone else’s table last Thanksgiving in the U.S. And while you may be transporting an item for the table if you’re driving – or just yourself if you’re flying – one thing’s for sure: a host or hostess gift is in order.
At Blossom Flower Shops, we’re not going to talk you down from the instinct to bring or send flowers. Certainly, a beautiful display of blooms makes a fresh and vital point about your gratitude. On the other hand, in these cold months, something a little more green (and a little more accommodating to all tastes and preferences) might be just the thing.
Enter our Betta Fish with Green Plant. The fact that this is a peace lily almost sells itself; what better gesture to offer, during this time of gathering together and giving, celebrating family, friends, and unity? But the plant part of this is what’s so key. The green reminds us of warmer times and enervates the home. A plant is hardier and, let’s face it, easier to find a home for around the house. But the kicker? The fish. This host or hostess gift is more than a gesture of gratitude, it’s a conversation piece.
If your host’s home includes kids, this is a gift for them as well. We like a host gift that achieves several things at once: easy to find a home for, easy to love, and easy to be entertained by. The only issue is how many of the other guests will want one, too.
