When some of your nearest and dearest get engaged, one of the first things to usually go through your mind is how to get them the perfect gift to celebrate this momentous and happy occasion.

However, it can be quite difficult to find a unique and personal gift for the newly engaged couple, with many people turning to the same tired, old ideas.

So, you might be thinking, why are we writing a blog about flowercards? “Are they not just flowers?”, you might be wondering.

We think not and here, we’re going to give you the lowdown on why flowercards make the perfect engagement gift for your special couple.

A Unique Twist On A Classic

Whilst we might moan about flowers being the main choice of gift for special occasions, it’s a well-known fact that most of us enjoy receiving some beautiful blooms. Proven to make people happier, they can instantly lift the mood of the receiver and are an extremely popular gift.

In fact, one study found that Brits scrimp on almost all gifts except for flowers for Valentine’s Day and that the UK cut flower industry is worth around £2.2bn at retail value.

Flowercards offer you the chance to give the classic gift of flowers but in a more unique way. You can send a beautiful arrangement in a greetings card, a tin or even a teacup, giving it a subtle twist on a much-loved present.

This thoughtful and quirky alternative to a traditional bouquet will bring a smile to the happy couple, and make your gift stand out amongst the others.

Personalisable

One of the best reasons to give flowercards as a gift is the high level of personalisation that comes with them. They offer the perfect chance to really express your feelings, with most flowercard providers allowing you to add thoughtful messages, names, and dates to cards to give a meaningful and personal gift.

We spoke to Flowercard, an online retailer of flower gifts, who said: “Our most popular products are most definitely our range of flowercards. Customers love the opportunity to customise their gift to make it really special.”

There are also lots of ways to personalise the gift of flowers beyond the words you write. Many flowers have specific meanings, stemming from the Victorian era, so choosing the right blooms can help to send a subtler message as well.

Easy Delivery

Whilst this is a more practical reason to give flowercards, the logistics of transporting gifts are also a large consideration when it comes to buying presents.

With the dispersal of friends and relatives across the country, or even across the world, a gift that can be easily ordered and delivered over long distances makes it much easier to get the perfect present without too much hassle.

And, if the happy couple lives far away, it can make a lovely gift to be surprised with flowers out of the blue and let them know you’re thinking of them on this special occasion.
