why men should continue to give flowers even after marriage

The sight, aroma and touch of a bouquet of flowers melts a ladies’ heart. Men know this and that is why they will give their favorite lady a lovely arrangement of flowers during courtship days. The blend of happy colours and sysmatrical shapes of the blooms represents fresh new life of spring and new hope. A thoughtful bouquet enhances the individual blooms when set against fillers and complementary leaves. It is a sampling of creation at its best. It conveys the message that the lady recipient is lovely, is worthy and is loved.

When a lady is loved for who she is during courtship days, surely she is even more appreciated after marriage. She has to adjust to a new home and the responsibilities that come with managing a household. When babies arrive, these are a totally awesome and new experience to take care of. A lady gives of her time, her heart and her soul in raising children. She has to do all this even while continuing to nurture a relationship with her husband.

So husbands can do their part by showering the love of their life with words of kindness, thoughtful deeds, loving caresses and massages, the gift of creatively arranged bouquet of flowers. Schedule in time to go on a date to tell her how amazing she is, how much you grow deeper in your love for her. Keep the flames burning. There is no reason why romance can’t continue after the wedding and arrival of babies.

Giving Flowers Say A Lot Of About The Sender

Rutgers University researchers examine what the gifts we choose say about who we are and whether they affect how we are perceived. The research reveals that those who send flowers, in comparison to other gifts, are viewed as caring, successful, and emotionally intelligent people.

Giving Flowers

Birthdays, congratulations, thank you, get well, I love you, thinking of you, sympathy. Each day, millions of gifts are exchanged by people who want to send thoughtful regards to deserving friends and loved ones. According to the research, the presents we pick to convey our special messages say a lot about us.

Rutgers University researcher Jeannette Haviland-Jones, Ph.D., director of the university’s Human Emotions Lab, explored what the gifts we choose say about who we are and whether they affect how we are perceived. The research reveals that those who send flowers, in comparison to other gifts, are viewed as successful, caring and emotionally intelligent people. More specific findings include:

Both men and women who give flowers are perceived as happy, achieving, strong, capable and courageous people;

Men and women come across as more emotionally intelligent; they give the impression they can effectively express their feelings and take time to understand the feelings of others; and Female floral gifters are viewed as more appreciative of beauty and nature.

Flowers Are Message of Love & Care


“Our findings show that you can influence and change what people think of you in a significant way through the gifts you give,” says Haviland-Jones. “That news is particularly important to those interested in enhancing friendships and romances, even business relationships.”

Discovering the scientific power of flowers is not new to Haviland-Jones. Previous Rutgers University research conducted by her team found that flowers create instant delight and happiness, and increase enjoyment and life satisfaction. Specifically, upon receiving a gift of flowers, the female study participants responded with true smiles and reported positive moods that lasted for days. The presence of flowers also led to increased contact with family and
friends.

Any time is a good time to give flowers

“Flowers have evolved to activate positive emotional responses from people,” says Haviland-Jones. “Each bloom has the potential to put a smile on our face and sway our opinion of a friend, colleague or loved one. That’s powerful.”

M.J. Ryan, award-winning author of the Random Acts of Kindness book series and The Giving Heart, uses cutting-edge science to bring out the best in people. In her books, she teaches individuals how gratitude and generosity can result in greater happiness, health and feelings of human connectivity.

“Gift recipients experience compelling connections with givers, and the positive link is particularly evident in the exchange of flowers,” says Ryan. “In my everyday work with individuals, CEOs and leadership teams at some of the world’s top global companies, I see the powerful implications of gratitude and appreciation.”

According to Ryan, a simple call to the florist can make a big impact beyond conventional gifting occasions. Some of her favorite, unexpected gifting opportunities include surprise recognition for a job well done; an “I miss you” gift for an out-of-town family member; and an advance “thanks for hosting us” gesture before visiting a friend’s house.

“A successful person is not necessarily someone with a lot of money and material goods, but rather someone who is in tune with people and knows how to touch their hearts,” says Ryan. “I can think of no other item besides flowers that evokes such positive feelings and perceptions for both the giver and the recipient.”
