Pair the Flowers with Another Gift
A small gift included with the flowers can make your gift more memorable. The following are some ideas.
- A card for an occasion, such as a birthday or graduation, or with just a simple greeting.
- A small stuffed animal or box of chocolates.
- An invitation to dinner with you.
- A piece of jewelry.
Make It Easy to Care for Them
You and the lucky recipient both want the flowers to stay healthy and vibrant for as long as possible, but you do not want your gift to be a burden. When the flowers are a surprise, your friends are not going to be prepared to take care of them. To make it easier, make sure that your flowers come with directions so that your friend knows to cut the stems, how often to water them, and whether to expose them to the sunlight. You can also make it easier by including a packet of plant food with the bouquet. If you are not sure if your friend will have a vase available, present your flowers in a vase or bring one with you.
Surprising friends with flowers can be a fun and expressive experience that cheers up both you and your friend. With these tips, your surprise can be a gift that you both remember for years to come.
