Chances are you have at least one person on your gift list who is almost impossible to buy for. Finding the perfect birthday present is getting more challenging every year, and you never know if you have chosen the right gift.

 

Instead of searching in vain for yet another year, consider giving a floral gift this year. You do not have to limit yourself to a vase of fresh blooms or a basket of flowers. Here are some unique ideas you can use to incorporate flowers into your gifts and turn fresh blossoms into the ultimate birthday present.

 

For the Crafty Type

If you have a crafty type on your gift list, you can enhance your floral present with some unique craft ideas. Stop by the craft store to pick up some supplies, then present your recipient with the gift that keeps on giving.

 

A simple wreath form can turn a bouquet of flowers into a beautiful keepsake. With a few supplies, you can thread those beautiful blooms into a wreath fit for any front door. A flower drying kit will help the crafty person on your gift list preserve their special memories for a lifetime.

 

For the Book Lover

Chances are at least one person on your birthday gift list loves to read. If so, a stack of books is the perfect present. If you know your recipient's favorite author, seek out some books they have not read yet for a wonderful gift. If you are at a loss for titles, a gift card to their favorite real-world or online bookstore is a great choice.

 

No matter which option you choose, a homemade floral bookmark is the perfect accompaniment to your literary gift. Just press and dry your favorite flowers to create a bookmark your friend will be proud to show off as they reread their favorite novels.

 

For the Great Cook

If you have a friend who loves to cook and prepare fine food, why not create a floral centerpiece worthy of a formal dining table? You can find some great centerpiece ideas at your local craft store, along with all the materials to create it from scratch.

 

Whether you choose the classic simplicity of a pillar candle or the practicality of a serving tray, fresh flowers make the perfect accent. Just add a vase of fresh flowers and give a gift any cook would be thrilled to receive.

 

For the Gardener

Flowers are a natural choice for the gardener in your life, but a little creativity will make the gift even more special. Instead of giving your favorite gardener an assortment of potted flowers, try pairing a vase of cut carnations with an assortment of carnation seed packets and a few flower pots.

 

Your friend can enjoy the beauty of flowers now, and the anticipation of fresh flowers later. No matter which flowers you choose, this combination gift is sure to be a big hit.

 

Flowers are the perfect gift for any occasion, and birthday flowers are sure to be appreciated. There are plenty of great ways to incorporate fresh blossoms into the gifts you give, and the people on your gift list are sure to appreciate your creativity and your generosity.

 

A floral gift may not be the first thing that comes to mind when shopping for a birthday present, but it is sure to be one of the most remembered. Whether you are celebrating the birthday of a friend, family member or coworker, the gift of flowers is always an appropriate choice. So why not stop off today and buy some great flowers for the special people in your life?

Got a case of the Monday Blues? Don't feel bad your not the only one with a case of the Monday blues, on average, most people don't even crack a first smile until 11:16 a.m., reports The Telegraph. Believe it or not their are several cures for the case of the Monday Blues and they can all be found in your supermarket.

Three supermarket items you can use to cure yourself of the Monday Blues:

 

Fresh supermarket flowers- Nature provides us with a way to improve your emotional health and that is FLOWERS! According to behavioral research conducted at Rutgers University in New Jersey, having flowers around naturally triggers happy emotions and heightens feelings of life satisfaction. Flowers are also known for inspiring creativity, so bloggers, designers, and anyone in a creative field surround yourself with flowers.

Here is a quick tip: Pick up a bouquet of supermarket flowers that match the colors of your office. Supermarkets have excellent quality flowers with 5 day freshness guarantees  and a vast variety of colors and styles.  Get that flower bouquet and break it up into two or three smaller bouquets and hand them out to some coworkers, not only will it cure your blues but you can pay to forward to others.

Fresh apples- "An apple a day keeps the doctor away", apples contain a natural sugar called fructose that can wake you up and keep you moving. Apples also contain carbohydrates,  which as we all know gives the body energy to keep it moving without causing it to crash later on in the day like coffee.

Fresh sheet of paper- Before you begin your Monday, write out your to do list in a fresh sheet of paper. This will prevent  you from feeling overwhelmed if you see your to do list from the previous week. Remember Monday is all about a fresh start for the week and a fresh sheet of paper is a great way to feel optimistic for the beginning of the week.

These are three inexpensive items you can find at your local supermarket that can really help you cure your Monday Blues. Don't forget to share this with others, so one day in the future the case of the Monday Blues can be cured.

Sometimes only flowers make the perfect gift for someone in your life has just bought a house, a big basket of fresh flowers makes the perfect housewarming present. If your best friend and her spouse just welcomed a new baby into their lives, a bouquet of flowers in subtle shades of pink and blue is the perfect thing to give. If you are attending a holiday party, arriving with a centerpiece of fresh flowers is sure to make you their favorite guest. All those are great ideas for floral gifts, but you can also incorporate fresh flowers into other gifts you give.

 

Here are some great ideas for adding a floral element to all the presents you give using supermarket flowers:

supermarket flowers used on wrapped gifts

 

Dress Up That Plain Old Gift Bag or wrapped gift

Gift bags have become increasingly popular for birthday and holiday presents. Unlike wrapping paper, gift bags are easy to open and close, and they are completely reusable. Unfortunately, gift bags can also look pretty generic in the gift table.

If you want to dress up that boring gift bag and make your present standout, just wrap a flower stem around each of the handles. The flower will bring new color and beauty to your gift, and the fresh scent will waft through the room.

 

Create a Personalized Gift for Your Loved Ones

Giving a personalized gift is the perfect way to show how much you care. A crystal bud vase engraved with the name of the recipient is the perfect gift for virtually any occasion. If you want to personalize the gift even further, you can incorporate a bouquet with that persons birth flower and make the bud vase even more beautiful. Supermarket flowers have bunches with the same flower type and good quality.

 

Give a Unique Gift with a Floral Treasure Hunt

FFEL_ScavengerHuntIf you want to give your spouse something special this year, consider setting up a floral-based scavenger hunt. Just pick up a pack of note cards, write out some cryptic clues and attach a fresh flower to each one. Then hide them around the house for a fun scavenger hunt.

Your spouse will have endless fun trying to figure out the clues and find their special present.. You can even start a new tradition with an annual Valentine's Day or Christmas scavenger hunt.

 

There is just something fun about giving flowers. A floral gift might make the recipient feel better, but it makes the giver feel better as well. Incorporating floral elements into every gift you give will make every occasion more special and memorable. Whether you are creating the perfect graduation gift for your cousin or the world's best Valentine's Day present for your spouse, adding a special floral element is a great way to show how much you care.

White desk with spring environment.If you are tired of the cold outside your door, you can get a jump start on spring with an assortment of fresh flowers. Filling your home with flowers is one of the best ways to lift your mood and get you ready for spring. Here are a few simple ways to incorporate flowers into your home décor.

 

While nothing can make the leaves on the calendar go by faster, welcoming the leaves of flowers into your home can brighten your mood, make you feel better and create a warm and welcoming environment inside your home and out. If you want to get a jump start on the spring season to come, these ideas can help you get ready for a new and warmer day. Flowers have the ability to turn even the darkest and coldest day around and give your home a more cheery look.

 

Fill Up Your Wall Sconces

In medieval times wall sconces were used to light the way through dark castles and dank passageways. Castle keepers would use the sconces to hold the torches that served as artificial light in those days.

 

These days wall sconces are purely decorative, and they are a great way to bring fresh flowers into your home. Fill the empty sconces with a bouquet of fresh flowers, or thread a single blossom around an existing electric candle. You will instantly dress up your home for the cost of a few flowers.

 

Dress Up Your Mantel

If you have a fireplace in your home, your mantel serves a practical purpose, but it can also be part of your home décor. If your mantel is purely decorative, it can be the perfect venue for your favorite flowers.

 

If you want to make flowers the centerpiece of the mantel in your living room or bedroom, try placing a large vase  in the exact center. Frame the vase with an assortment of family photos and other mementoes for a stylish and elegant look.

 

If you prefer to accent your mantel with flowers, a few carefully placed bud vases should do the trick. You can create a symmetrical look by placing a vase at each end, or create a more eclectic display with an add number of vases placed at random.

 

Set a Better Table

The holiday centerpiece is a staple of the Thanksgiving and Christmas meals, but  you do not have to wait for a special occasion to dress up your dining room with flowers. Whether you take a crafting class and create a homemade centerpiece or choose a serving tray with an inset vase, you can incorporate fresh flowers into every meal and set a more elegant table.

 

These ideas may not make spring get here any sooner, but they can make the long dark nights of winter easier to bear. Filling your home with fresh flowers is the perfect way to bring the beauty of nature indoors as you get ready to welcome the warmer weather to come.

 

Liven up your office

Doesn't matter if your office is at home or at your work place, flowers bring in the spirit of spring, brightening up your spaces. You might not want to place a large bouquet of flowers on your desk, but a stunning  vase with a simple bouquet can  really dress up your office. Flowers are know to stirring up the creative juices, which could be helpful for work.

These ideas may not make spring get here any sooner, but they can make the long dark nights of winter easier to bear. Filling your home with fresh flowers is the perfect way to bring the beauty of nature indoors as you get ready to welcome the warmer weather to come.

His & Hers  flower arrangementsMaterials Needed:

- His and Hers glasses (your pick)

- Mustache & Lip Stencil (Available in the bottom of post)

- X-acto knife

- Red and black acrylic paint

-Paint brush

 

Step 1:

With your X-acto knife cut out the mustache and lip stencil or as I like to call it the "LipStache" stencil.

Step 2:

On the "His" drinking glass  tape the mustache stencil.  Make sure the stencil is pressed tightly on the glass to prevent the paint from going under the stencil.

Step 3:

Squeeze out a dab of black paint onto a piece of paper or on anything you don't mind getting paint on. Dip the tip of the paint brush into the black paint and start from the side of the mustache. TIP: Make sure to paint the pointy corners of the mustache before you paint the center of the mustache.

Step 4:

Repeat steps 2-4 for the wine glass. Make sure to hold the glass firmly, so the stencil does not move.  Once you are done, let the paint dry for about one hour.

Finally, select a floral bouquet from your local supermarket and make it your own. Take it apart match up the masculine colors for "His" and the more feminine colors for "Her" arrangements.

Taking the time to make store bought floral bouquets your own will not only save you money, but give you something personal and unique for your sweetie like a His and Hers bouquet. Hope you have the most romantic weekend this Valentines and please share with us your " His and Hers " V-Day arrangements on Twitter or Facebook - #FFEL.

TIP: Try to make the "His" arrangement more geometric shape and make "Hers" more organically shaped.

Valentine's Day is a day of romance, but really how romantic is it to wait forty five minutes for a table in a crowded and noisy restaurant. Truth be told it is not the most romantic setting for couples to celebrate their love. A picnic in the other hand is a perfect solution for those that want a more romantic setting with lots of thought behind it.  If you are in warmer location a picnic outdoors in a park, beach, or even your backyard would make a perfect setting. Now I haven't forgotten about those places that are to cold.  Try and select a place in your home that is warm and cozy; in-front of a fire place, center of the living room, or even an attic or basement can make a perfect place to set your romantic picnic.

No matter where you decide to create your romantic picnic all you need is here.

Picnic Checklist:

Picnic Food

 

  • Sandwiches

Yes, sandwiches are a great choice for your romantic picnic. There are so many choices, pick your sweetie favorite that will show  them how much you really know about them. Cut each sandwich like the shape of a heart with a heart shaped cookie cutter.  Easy to do & eat!

  • Sides

Do not kill yourself over picking sides, just get your sweeties favorite fruit or just get grapes,  you can feed them to each other. Another idea is get snack size bags of chips,  that way you have several different flavors to pick from.

  • Drinks

This is a no brainer, pack water bottles or juices and an adult beverage of your choosing. However, not all places allow those types of beverages, so double check first before adding it to your picnic basket.

  • Condiments

I know your wondering "why are condiments on this list." Well the reason this  is on the list is because I wanted to give you a tip: don't add the condiments to the sandwich until you ready to eat them because their is nothing less romantic then a sandwich with soggy bread.

 

Picnic  Essentials

 

  • Ice pack

One of the best mobile inventions ever, the ice pack. Make sure to add one to your picnic basket, it will prevent your food from spoiling and keep you drinks cool.

  • Tableware

I think this one is self explanatory.

  • Cutting knife

Plastic knives won't cut it, literally. A good cutting knife can help you cut food or open a bottle if needed.

  • Trash bag

You don't want all your stinky trash in a your picnic basket and mother nature does not want it on her floor, so prepare yourself with a trash bag for quick pick up.

  • Moist towelettes

This one is a must because yo might not be near a bathroom to wash your hands and you really don't want your hands to smell like food when your holding each other.

 

Picnic Decor

 

  • Blanket

No picnic is complete without a blanket. Pick one that is thick, but not to big so you can be close to your sweetie.

  • Gift

Incorporate your gift into the picnic decor. Why not bring your sweetie's favorite book and inside of it put a floral bookmark made by you. Then read to them a passage from the book there is nothing more romantic.

  • Flowers

There is nothing else in this world that can instantly change the ordinary to extraordinary. Flowers make people smile, feel loved and appreciated all wrapped up in one  bouquet flowers. My favorite flowers for picnics are Pura Vida available at Publix Supermarkets, the bright colors enhance the intense colors of the food.

The carnation has been overlooked for sometime, but it is the most versatile flower. You can give carnations to your wife, girlfriend, mother, partner, friend, coworker, or whom ever you give flowers too. However, it is important to understand the hidden meaning of carnations and what the various colors convey.

If you do not know how to speak the secret language of carnation, you could get caught flat footed when Valentine's Day rolls around. If you choose the wrong colors, you could be telling your fiancé that  you want to just be friends, or your work colleague that you are her secret admirer, oh no!

Let us start our exploration of colors and their meanings with the classic red carnation.

Red Carnations

You may already know that the red carnation is a symbol of love, and that it is used to express devotion, romance and affection. If you are looking for a way to express your undying love, you cannot go wrong with a basket full of deep red carnations.

Pink Carnations

The pink carnation has a similar, but slightly different meaning. Pink roses are most often associated with admiration and devotion. As such, they are often given by secret admirers. If you have been watching the girl of your dreams from afar, sending her a bouquet with carnations that would be a lovely gesture. Aside from being a symbol of admiration, these flowers best describe a mother's pure love of her children. Pink carnations are also a great gift for mother's on Valentine's Day, since she is the first woman you love.

 White Roses

You may have seen a bouquet of white flowers adorning the gift table at a friend's wedding, or a spray of white carnations at the church. That is very fitting, since white carnations symbolize innocence and new beginnings. If you and your bride are still newlyweds, mixing a few white carnations  in with the red ones would be a lovely touch. Or if you and your girlfriend are just starting out this could show her how optimistic you are about your future together.

Yellow Carnations 

Be careful, not every color of a carnation means something positive. The yellow carnations symbolizes rejection and disappointment of someone that has failed you in some way. If you are in a situation where you are planning to end a relationship, but since it is close to Valentine's Day , sending them yellow carnations might send the message for you if they speak the language of flowers.

Purple Carnations

Purple carnations is the best hue to give a friend that you find unpredictable, impulsive, or witty. However if you do not have a friend that is like that, purple carnations can also be given to apologize to someone. A bouquet of  flowers with purple carnations can indicate that you’ve had a change of heart and are ready to patch up your differences. Valentine's Day is a day to spread the love, especially to those people that we have wronged or have wronged us.

I hope this  convinces you that carnations are the perfect flowers to give a person you love during Valentine's Day. Knowing the meanings behind the colors of these flowers makes the gift even more special. Understanding the secret language of flowers will also help you avoid an uncomfortable mistake the next time this most special day comes around.
