Have you tried buying flowers online?
Giving flowers is one of the oldest and most traditional acts of kindness and love. Flowers have been used by humans to represent everything from gifts of thanks, to love, and to beg for mercy. They have long been admired and have been seen as objects of religion, medicine, ritual, romance and even food sources. Flowers, you should know, are actually the reproductive structure found in flowering plants. They are sometimes also called a bloom or blossom.
Two of the biggest holidays for flower buying are Easter and Mothers Day. For Easter, half of all plants ordered are lilies. One fourth of all floral purchases made for holidays are made for Mothers Day. The most popular flowers for Mothers Day are roses, lilacs, irises, orchids, carnations, tulips, and lilies.
In the good ol’ days, you would just step out your back door whenever you needed celebrations flowers for a mother, girlfriend or wife. Every major holiday, some minor ones, and on those days when you were in the dog house, you could find a few in the backyard or family garden and that would suffice. Well, not anymore. We hardly even grow gardens, but if we did, we would rather stay inside and order them online like we do everything else. And in the good new days, more and more men are buying flowers online.
It is easy, fast, and usually more economical to pay for internet flower delivery. The beauty of buying flowers online is that you can order them from any computer with internet and have them sent anywhere in the world. I once ordered flowers from a cafe in Sydney, Australia, and had a nice arrangement of lilies, orchids, and roses delivered to an irate girlfriend in Johannesburg, South Africa. She still broke up with me, but she said the flowers I had sent her were wonderful.
Buying flowers online is generally considered a discretionary purchase. Naturally, buying flowers online is dependent on disposable income, and factors such as unemployment tend to affect consumer spending.
