Buying flowers for someone is the universal gesture of appreciation, and in some cases, love and commitment. With that said, some holidays typically call for flower giving more than others. For instance, traditionally, flowers are given on Valentine’s Day or Mother’s Day more than others. So, if you feel like being original, by all means, give someone special a flower arrangement on any holiday, but for the purpose of this post, we are only going to cover the 2014 holidays traditionally associated with gifting flowers.
Likely the holiday most synonymous with flower giving, Valentine’s Day is always a prime opportunity to show that someone special in your life how you feel about them with some beautiful gerbera daises, or traditional red roses. For those that have trouble remembering dates, Valentine’s is one of those trusty holidays that falls on the same date every year. This year, February 14th is on a Friday so you can celebrate into the night and not have to worry about getting up for work the next day.
Easter is one of the best holidays to give flowers not just because it is a thoughtful gesture, but more specifically, because the date is in spring and so many beautiful types of flowers are in bloom. In 2014, Easter Sunday falls on April 20th, which means flowers like irises and tulips will be ready to be picked and given to your favorite Easter bunny. These flowers often come in many different varieties and colors, but usually the most appropriate are light, pastel colors to go with the Easter theme.
Mother’s Day 2014 is another great date to buy flowers, and not just for anyone, for the wonderful woman that brought you into this world. Sunday, May 11th is the date; don’t forget to send your mom a bouquet with lilies or an assorted arrangement. After all, you really can’t go wrong giving flowers on Mother’s Day.
