Ways to Say You Care During Social Distancing

Posted

The Covid-19 crisis has separated many of us from our loved ones, but it hasn’t stopped us from connecting with each other. Despite the social distancing restrictions being imposed, people are finding other ways of reaching out and catching up with friends and family.

Sending flowers, for example, is a great way to tell people that we are thinking of them. People often buy flowers for special occasions, but one of the best reasons for sending flowers is when there’s no reason at all. It’s a simple act of thoughtfulness that can put a smile on anyone’s face.

Why flowers?

They’re a bit of happiness that you can put in any room to brighten it up. They also do more than beautify a place. According to some studies, the presence of flowers can reduce anxiety and stress, brighten one’s outlook in life, and provide a long-term positive effect on a person’s mood. Now more than ever, we need that little bit of cheer in our lives.

Other ways to say you care

Aside from flowers, you can also try giving these practical gifts below. We’re sure your recipient will love them.

1. Plants and dish gardens

Unlike cut flowers, plants can last for a long time. It doesn’t matter how much of a green thumb your recipient has, there are hardy plants that can survive and thrive with minimal care. There are also many varieties that provide health benefits such as peace lilies, spider plants, and chrysanthemums. These indoor plants are some of the best when it comes to purifying the air.

Plants also add a delightful ambience to a home and a sense of tranquility. They’re sustainable and if given the proper amount of attention, will be there for you to enjoy for years to come.

2. A gift basket

A well-designed gift basket can show your appreciation for someone just as well as flowers and plants. It’s a nice thing for a receiver to get because each one is filled with little presents that can range from the tasty to useful. They’re easy enough to fill with things that your recipient prefers, but you can also order well thought-out ready-made ones.

A safe delivery experience

The current pandemic has put safety at the forefront of every business owner’s mind, including florists. Most have adapted to the new norm by offering contactless deliveries or following safe social distancing protocols. If your local florist doesn’t offer touchless delivery, it’s easy enough to request one to ensure that your gift can be left outside the door without requiring a signature.

Put a smile on someone’s face.

Remind your loved one that you are thinking of them even through the distance. Contact us for your gift of flowers today.
