Poker Night Fight? Send Flowers To Apologize
Copyright © 2006 Wesley Berry

Your buddies were over last night for poker night. They were 
noisy, stayed late, and left the place a mess. Your significant 
other is not amused and you're in the doghouse. Need a quick way 
to start smoothing things over? Send her flowers to let her know 
how wonderful she is and how sorry you are.

In a recent survey of both men and women, when asked which gift 
they most often give to apologize, a whopping 49 percent of 
respondents chose flowers making them the number one ranked 
apology gift-even over jewelry which received only 10 percent of 
the vote. More importantly, flowers were also ranked the best "I 
Love You" gift with 37 percent of the vote. Clearly flowers are a 
fantastic way to say, "I'm sorry."

So, how do you choose and order an apology gift of flowers for 
your significant other? Well, it's much easier than you might 
think. Here are some quick tips:

 * First and foremost, think of a way to personalize the gift. 
   A generic gift of flowers that doesn't take into consideration 
   her personality, likes, and dislikes isn't likely to help you 
   take even one step out of the doghouse. If she hates orchids, 
   she's going to be even angrier if you send her a bouquet of 
   them. However, if her absolute favorite flower is brightly 
   colored, enormous gerberas, a huge bouquet of them is sure 
   to bring at least a small smile to her face.

 * Write her a special note to go with the flowers. Let her 
   know that you appreciate her letting you have all the guys 
   over, or that you know you screwed up, and you hope she'll 
   forgive you. Whether you make it a heartfelt note or just 
   a clever and cute one really depends on just how angry she 
   is. If she's just mildly miffed about the mess in the 
   kitchen after poker night, try something like, "I'll bet 
   none of my poker buddies knows I'm married to the Queen 
   of Hearts-but I do!"

 * Enlist your florist to help you with your mission. Florists 
   are experts in creating special arrangements to meet any 
   need, and they've heard it all! Tell your florist what the 
   flowers are for, provide a little information about the 
   recipient's likes, dislikes, favorite flowers, and favorite 
   colors, and let your florist do the rest.

 * Have the flowers delivered at a time that will be a surprise, 
   but that is also convenient. If you know your significant 
   other would be irritated by flowers delivered during the peak 
   time at work, communicate that to your florist and give him 
   or her a best time for the delivery.

The bottom line here is to really think about how your gift of 
flowers can have the best impact on the situation. Make it a 
personal gift that matches the situation, and make sure she knows 
how important she is to you. Remember, flowers are a great "I 
Love You" gift, so make sure yours say just that.
