With a year of minimal social contact, Zoom parties, and lockdown birthdays, it’s important to remind the people you care about that they are loved—and what better way to do that than with flowers? 

According to Hayford and Rhodes, searches for ‘Flowers to order’ have shot up by a mind-blowing 900% compared to last year, with everyone ordering bouquet deliveries for their nearest and dearest. 

Searches for ‘Online Flower Delivery’ have also shot up by 172% as has ‘Flower delivery’ by 170%, so it seems like we're also treating ourselves as a way of self-care.

Bouquets of flowers have become so popular that Bloom and Wild even refused to sell just boring red roses for Valentine's Day because the demand for personalised bouquets was so high.

Flowers are a great way to send someone a bit of cheer and better yet flowers and plants are proven to boost the mood, reduce stress and anxiety and even purify the air. The perfect gift to send those stuck indoors and needing some TLC.
