For centuries, people have been gifting each other flowers. And even before anyone knew, it became a way of expressing your love and interest in someone else. Typically, a man gives a flower to a woman to show his interest in her. But as a society, we have progressed enough to see women give flowers to men as well.
I don’t think that this tradition will go away anytime soon. In fact, I strongly believe that this tradition will never go away.
Today, flowers have extended their role from just being a way to express your love and desire for someone to something much more than that. Today people gift flowers to their loved ones to celebrate different occasions like an anniversary, a birthday, or even after someone gets a promotion at their job. They celebrate that by gifting flowers.
Not only that, people also use flowers as a way to show sympathy or offer an apology. I bet you would’ve never thought of that (besides watching it in Hollywood movies).
Regardless of the reason why you want to gift flowers, it is a universally accepted concept that people have. And it is a good concept because I have experienced first-hand how hard it can be to choose a gift for someone. And I would rather have the option to choose flowers instead any day of the week.
So to answer your question about why do people gift flowers?
It is because that’s what they know. That’s the way they know to appreciate someone, to celebrate an occasion, and in some cases, to offer sympathy or an apology to someone.
Women love flowers more than anything. And just imagine if your boyfriend was standing at your doorstep with a bouquet of red roses and offering you an apology.
How would you feel?
Pretty special right? And you would also accept his apology because of his kind gesture and being willing to show that he cares about you. And the fact that he is willing to go the extra mile for you, is all you needed to know that he will be by your side during the hard times. And not ignore you like everyone else.
That’s what flowers are all about. They convey feeling, messages more efficiently than words can. With flowers, you don’t need to speak, you just need to show up and everything will go smoothly for you.
It doesn’t matter whether you were fighting with each other, or whether you are a man or a woman. When you see your loved one standing out there with a bouquet of flowers, you will let them in no matter what. And you would be open to making the best of that time.
