Flowers are one of the most common gift ideas, and everyone loves to receive a beautiful bouquet of multi-coloured blossoms. As with everything, the internet has made things easier than ever for people wanting the services of a florist, with many flower shops now allowing you to do everything you want online. However, there are some things you cannot do online that make a trip to the flower shop such a unique and memorable experience that everyone should try. Here are three reasons why visiting a flower shop is always better than ordering flowers online.
Vivid Differences In Colour
It cannot be stressed enough that not every flower photographs well. You might lose a bit of saturation, dynamic range or deepness of the colour and that is if you are lucky. Many a florist have struggled with this dilemma and there is simply no answer to it. Sometimes flowers just do not photograph as well as they look in person. That means that, if you can, physically visiting a florist is always preferred to get the best idea of the flowers you are buying. You might have a completely different reaction to certain blossoms in person than you did online, and your bouquet will be better for this new information.
Expert Advice On Your Particular Flowers
Florists love talking about their product, and it is an industry that naturally attracts more bubbly personalities who can engage face-to-face with customers. They know everything there is to know about the flowers you will be looking at and can give you some helpful tips such as:
- Whether that flower type or colour is appropriate for your scenario
- How long the flowers will last and what you can do to extend that
- What different flowers go together that you might not have considered
- The many different options of displaying and presenting them
- What additional gift ideas go well with your particular flowers
And so on. There is just no way to replicate this service in an online environment.
The good thing about a flower shop is that it can be a one-stop shop for all your last-minute gift ideas. Chocolate, vases, candles, pottery, art and teddy bears are all common sightings at your local florist and quite often not available online for one reason or another. If you are in a rush and need some flowers to say sorry or as a welcoming gift, then when you go in person, you can find the perfect supporting item to really take your gift to the next person. Shopping at a florist doesn't have to take a long time either; many trips are in and out in under five minutes, so it is still the preferred option for those in a hurry.
