For our 4th wedding anniversary, Josh gifted me metallic rose gold preserved roses. They are so lovely, and I adore them, which led me to this post. Flower options can sometimes feel endless, and to help in the quest for your giftee, I'm sharing some benefits of gifting preserved flowers and a wide selection of ways to give them.
There are many reasons to choose preserved flowers over traditional fresh ones. Below are the most notable advantages I gathered from my roses.
Preserved flowers are favorable because they can be enjoyed longer by the recipient. Depending on where you purchase them from and the care they receive, they can last one to three years, giving them a long-term reminder of the celebration and a smile on their face each time they see it.
When I first saw these, I was nervous they would smell dyed because they are. Thankfully, that was not the case as they smelled floral and fresh, just like a rose should.
They Improve Your Mood
In general, flowers are mood lifters by increasing positive energy to generate happiness, creating a relaxed and less stressed ambiance.
They're Soft to the Touch
Being dyed a metallic color, I thought my roses would be hard, but these were close to being as soft as a fresh petal.
They Make a Great Decor Piece
The box or package they're in is display ready for any space. There are preserved flower gifts with modern and traditional boxes to match any home aesthetic or personal taste.
