How To Choose The Right Get Well Flowers?

It's the thought that goes the distance – this we all know. The smallest of gestures can mean so much to others. And both of these platitudes hold true in many facets of our life. They're especially appropriate when someone we know is ill or in the hospital.

A little encouragement sent via a mood-boosting flower gift can go a long way. Some flowers are known to help with well-being, bring positive vibes, and relax the mind. Sending get well flowers is an easy yet thoughtful way to show that you care and remind someone who feels under the weather of brighter days ahead.

But before you arrange a hospital flower delivery, know that there are certain customary codes or practices that you should follow. Outlined below are the dos and don'ts of sending get-well-soon flower gifts.

Think Allergy-Free

The fragrance and pollen of some flowers and plants are irritants that can trigger asthma or allergy symptoms. When sending flower gifts to someone with a weakened immune system, it's best to side with caution and send pollen-free and scent-free flowers.

Stick with tulips, orchids, and hydrangeas. Daffodils and carnations are excellent picks, too. Choose bright-coloured ones that instantly perk up the spirit and lighten the mood.

Avoid Casablanca lilies, Stargazer lilies, and lily of the valley for their strong perfume-like scent can be irritating. Hyacinth, jasmine, lilac, gardenia, and baby's breath are also not recommended.

Vase it

Have your get-well-soon flowers ready for display. Send a vase or boxed arrangement instead of a bunch or bouquet needing further arranging. Go for a handy container or a durable vessel that won't easily break if knocked over. Plastic, metal, and wicker flower vessels are advisable.

Small is Best

Keep the arrangement small and unobtrusive in size. While a lush, grand, and big arrangement is impressive and truly cheerful, it could hinder a doctor or nurse's access to the patient.

Timing is Crucial

If you are sending flowers to wish someone a speedy recovery while in the hospital, timely flower delivery is essential. The floral gift will most often be delivered or left at the hospital's mail room or reception desk. Usually, the hospital staff will bring the gift to a patient's hospital room. In this case, don't be surprised if your gift takes a few more hours to reach the intended recipient. Also, ensure you have the correct room number (more specific details like floor number or building name will significantly help) and the recipient's full name.

You must also be familiar with the length of the patient's stay in the hospital. If it is likely to be short, consider sending get-well flowers to the person's home instead.

What Message to Send With Get Well Flowers?

Along with your flower gift, adding a small note of encouragement or wishes for healing is the perfect personal touch. Not sure what "get well soon" message to write? Try these:

  • From our hearts to yours, we hope you feel better soon.
  • Times are tough, but you're tougher. And you're not alone.
  • Praying for your complete healing and recovery.
  • Take extra good care of yourself. I miss having you around.
  • Sending strength and healing your way.
  • Get some rest.
  • Wishing you a quick recovery.
