Give Your Elderly A Boost With Flowers!

Browse the latest bouquets in our collection below

Giving aged people presents might sometimes be a bit of a challenge as many of the flashy, expensive and luxurious gift items younger people cherish so much might not be so much of a big deal to them. But flowers? They’ll always be a big deal to almost anyone and everyone.

Gifting elderly people flowers is a good way to encourage them, raise their spirits, and also let them know that you think about them and care about them. Apart from these, certain research has shown that being around flowers and receiving them as gifts can be therapeutic and beneficial to the health.

So, if you’ve been thinking of gifting your grandparents flowers, you’re certainly on the right track. But, now, what type of flowers are suitable for gifting elders? And how should you choose the flowers you will send? We will be answering these questions in this article. Sit tight!

What Flowers Are Suitable For Elderlies?

  • Orchids

Orchids can live for up to 20 years and they are widely known for their long life and sturdiness. They also represent prosperity and this is why they are number 1 on this list. What better way to wish your aged ones long life spent in happiness? They come in different colours but make sure you go for the brighter and warmer ones.

  • Roses

Although roses are not traditional choices of flowers for gifting elders as they are more associated with romance and love. However, with elderly ones, their eyesight might not be as stellar as it once was due to aging but their sense of smell – which is the most powerful sense organ – has a very high chance of being more active. Roses are known for their enchanting scents and long-lasting aroma which is why they appear on this list.

  • Tulips

Just like orchids, tulips are also long-lasting and represent long life. They signify hope, and deep love, and their warmth and pure aura can encourage just about anybody who’d stop to take a look. Just pick any of the colours of the flower you think they will appreciate most and send it.

  • Magnolias

Magnolias have a sweet, refreshing, fruity smell. They are also recommended and preferred by many aromatherapists. But most of all, they make good gifts for elderlies because they represent stability, health, and peace.

  • Lilies

If you’re getting a lily for your elderly, make sure to get the white-coloured lily. White lilies represent purity and except for the tiger lily, they are the only ones that have a great scent (or any scent really). However, if your elderlies have any cats, don’t go for it as lilies are toxic to cats. Some people also have an allergy to its pollen.

How To Choose Flowers For Elderlies

  • CONSIDER THE OCCASION

Is it Christmas? New Year’s Day? Mother’s or Father’s Day? Their Birthday? Or maybe you just decided to gift an elderly a bouquet on an ordinary day. Just like roses are associated with Valentine’s Day, other occasions are associated with certain flowers. So, consider the occasion before choosing the flowers.

  • CONSIDER YOUR PURPOSE

There are different reasons for gifting people flowers. Ask yourself, “Why do I want to send these flowers?”. Remember, each flower has something it represents so relate their significance with your purpose before making your choice.

  • BE SENTIMENTAL

Was there a flower they always sent you on Valentine’s back when you were single? Send it back this Valentine’s. Is there a certain flower that you know will jog certain good memories in their minds? Maybe she’s a widow but her husband used to send her lilies every time. What are you waiting for? Being sentimental will make your gift worth even more to them. So please, be sentimental!
