Flowers Are More Popular Than Pokemon

Want to give a gift that's even more popular than Pokemon 
and isn't just a passing fad? Try flowers! It's really no 
secret that flowers have been an extremely popular gift to 
give for many, many years. Now, thanks to a recent 
nationwide survey, we have hard numbers that prove what 
those of us in the floral industry have known all along. 

Of all the gifts given and received in America, flowers 
consistently fill one of the top three spots (other 
favorites are clothing and jewelry). And, in many cases, 
flowers even top the list of the best gift. For example, the 
gift both men and women like to receive as an expression of 
love is flowers. Perhaps that's because flowers so simply 
and beautifully show the love and emotion we feel in a very 
personal way. 

Sending flowers is also a very easy way to show someone how 
much you care. All it takes is a five minute phone call to 
your florist who will help you choose the perfect flowers 
for anyone in your life and for any occasion. Now, it should 
be noted that the survey showed that the number one most 
convenient gift to give is clothing. However, it should be 
said that clothing is also the number one most returned 
gift. Let's face it, it's much harder to choose an item of 
clothing that suits someone else's style and fits properly 
than it is to send a beautiful flower arrangement. How often 
do you hear about people returning flowers? 

Which gift do you suppose was ranked as the gift that most 
makes people smile? Well, I'd really like to say it's 
flowers, but in this case it was jewelry, receiving 26 
percent of respondents' votes. Flowers came in as a close 
second with 23 percent of the votes. Sure, if you send me a 
$1,000 watch I'm going to smile! But, how often are you able 
to send such an extravagant gift and is jewelry something 
you'd take to your boss's house for a dinner party? Probably 

Though we often choose flowers as a gift for special 
occasions such as birthdays and anniversaries, it turns out 
they're also the perfect gift for no occasion at all. When 
asked what their favorite occasion to receive flowers for 
was, survey respondents chose "no special occasion" as the 
best time to get them with 30 percent of the vote. Running a 
somewhat distant second was Valentine's Day with 20 percent 
of the vote. 

Clearly flowers as gifts aren't a fad that is likely to fade 
anytime soon. They're as prevalent as Pokemon and I, for 
one, hope they're a trend that never goes out of style.
