Flowers Help Boost Our Mood

Flowers Help Boost Our Mood

What's the first thing that comes to mind when a loved one is under the weather or recovering from surgery? It probably starts with wanting them to feel better, then becomes, "What can I do to help?"

According to a study done by the American Society for Horticultural Science, patients who have flowers or plants in their rooms had lower blood pressure and heart rates than patients without. They also found that flowers increased positive feelings and reduced worrisome thoughts.

So, sending flowers or a plant is not only a thoughtful gesture, it’s also something that can help your loved one heal. And beyond flowers, you can send get-well gift baskets filled with chicken noodle soup, cookies, tea, and a word search puzzle to help lift their spirits. Our “Friend on the Mend” gift basket delivers all that, and a smile!
