The hidden meaning behind gifting flowers

Flowers are one of the most popular gifts across the globe – and the possibilities are endless.

So, how do you choose which flowers to send on a particular occasion or to a certain loved one?

Well, it all comes down to the secret meaning behind every flower. To take the guesswork out of choosing the right flowers, we’ve created a guide to flower meanings, to help you decide which flowers to send to who – and when to send them. 

What do your flowers really mean?

Although flowers are the go-to gift to show a loved one your care, each variety has its special meaning that sets it apart.

Flower symbolism goes back thousands of years, and different cultures and religious groups have used flowers to express feelings and emotions. For example:

  • Red roses represent love, passion, and romance. 

  • Flowers such as sunflowers, daisies, and chrysanthemums represent innocence, purity, and joy. 

  • Orchids represent beauty, grace, and wealth. 

  • The lily, although a symbol of death in some cultures, represents purity, beauty, and resurrection.

Romantic anniversaries

Flowers carry romance wherever they go. That’s why the right flowers can say everything in a single moment – especially if you’re feeling tongue-tied around the love of your life.

At TouchNote, we believe in the power of classics. And what tells a person you love them more clearly than a bouquet of red roses?

Red roses are one of the oldest and most recognized flowers in the world. Red roses symbolize romance, beauty, and sensuality. 

Even back in medieval times, roses were given as tokens of affection, which has led to a bouquet of red roses becoming the traditional expression of love. Why not send your loved one our breathtaking Lovely Day Bouquet to let them know how special they are to you?

New home

Vibrant flowers, like our ‘Let’s Celebrate’ Bouquet are a natural choice for a new home. No matter where you are in the world, flowers with bright and colorful petals symbolize happiness, joy, and new beginnings.

Daffodils are the perfect flowers to give as housewarming gifts or even as gifts for new moms because they represent hope and positivity. Their joyful appearance makes them a great way to show your support and best wishes for a bright future.

Help bring a sense of calm to your loved one’s big move, no matter where in the world they’ve traveled to. TouchNote offers quick and safe flower deliveries (UK only).

Mother’s day

For Mother’s Day, it is common to send bouquets of flowers that are Full of Delight.

Lilies are a classic Mother’s Day gift. They traditionally symbolise purity, new life and rebirth. Making them the perfect gift for Mother’s Day. 

If you know the mother in your life prefers something less traditional, why not try a bouquet of sweet violets? Violets symbolize devotion and loyalty, making them the perfect way to say thank you to those incredible individuals who have always been there for us, showing us their love and support.

Flowers are the best way to show your mom how much you care. TouchNote’s unique delivery service lets you easily pick out the best flowers for her and have them mailed quickly and conveniently through her letterbox.
