This year, The Flower Bucket recommends bringing or sending your child’s teacher a fabulous lasting desk arrangement or bright bouquet of flowers for their first day of school.

Super Ladies Deserve Super Flowers

It’s an important month for the women in our lives—or as we here at The Flower Bucket like to call them, “super ladies.” After all, we’ve got Mother’s Day, National Nurses Day, National Teachers Day and the entire week of May 6 through 12 officially devoted to appreciating the latter two. In these female dominated fields, we’ve got mothers, sisters, daughters, aunts, friends, colleagues, neighbors. In other words, the women we honor in May are wearing many hats, educating, inspiring, protecting and nurturing the rest of us. They do their best to empower us, and we should definitely do that right back. One way to honor the super ladies in our lives is to give them flowers. Lots and lots of flowers.

Go Get You Some Flowers

We won’t lie, we here at The Flower Bucket think giving yourself a gift of flowers on the regular is a really good idea. But it’s not just because we’re in the business of getting said flowers in your hands that we say that—it’s because to get them there, we have to spend a lot of time around them. Like all day, every day. So not only do we know flowers, but we know their effects. We know they uplift the mood, clear the mind, connect a person with nature, appeal to the senses, inspire with their beauty . . . We could go on. The point is, flowers are good for the soul, and that’s why you should be giving them to yourself.

Flowers That Matter A Whole Bunch

The Flower Bucket knows that not every flower-giving occasion is created equal. There’s a big difference in pinning a corsage onto your prom date and buying your sweetheart her tenth year of red roses at Valentine’s Day. The former is an example of when a flower exchange takes a moment and makes it into a memory, and these are the occasions we love most. The intimate personal exchanges that happen between people with flowers is one of our favorite reasons to give them.
