I love fresh flowers. However, I hate getting beautiful bouquets as gifts, especially when it’s delivered to my job. Sounds like an oxymoron, right? Well, I have hay fever. Most people pick an arrangement based on beauty, so they typically select something that’s highly pollinated, like lilies. I later tear up–due to the thoughtful gesture and the allergy symptoms striking. I end up putting the flowers in the conference room or another common area for others to admire. Even if you’re not allergic you may not embrace the idea of receiving flowers. I’ve heard women complain about getting red roses, which they say are unoriginal and overdone.
So, check out these great alternatives to sending flowers.
Record a Video Greeting
If you want to tie in technology, record a video greeting. You can say something simple and ask how her day is going or give a compliment. Or, you can tell her that you're looking forward to the next time you're together and even ask her to send you a video reply. Photo Credit: Zacuto
