“Make love, not war,” is quite a popular slogan during the age of flower power. It included the whole hippie image of being politically informed and wearing clothes in vibrant colors with a lot of flower designs. That was a time when people were protesting about the Vietnam War in the 1960’s. Anti-war advocated handed out lots of flowers to politicians, policemen, military, press and spectators during protest rallies. “Flower power” truly turned into the vital symbol of the counter-culture movement. Flowers can be quite powerful. Giving a girl a bouquet of flowers can often compel that girl to say “yes” to anything you propose. In addition, seeing a lot of flowers can make a person feel at peace. A lot of gardeners will probably agree on that. This is also why these can be the best Christmas presentsfor anyone who loves growing plants.
Women can always appreciate a bouquet of flowers, but that does not mean you do not have other options. There are gift boxes that allow a person to name a flower after them. It will also provide seeds and a few gardening necessities. This can be a rather romantic gift for those who are looking for gift ideas for their special someone. Another option would be pocket gardens that can also make great stocking fillers or gifts. These pocket gardens can have various herb, chili or flower seeds. The perfect pocket garden for anyone who loves to cook would be the ones that come with herb seeds. Instead of simply giving a gift, you can make it a garden activity. You can give that person a picnic hamper complete with all the goodies and have a picnic in the garden. It is a way to spend quality time with family and friends as well.
A person who is due for some rest and relaxation can also make use of the power of flowers. Aromatherapy has been found to be a great way to improve a person’s mood.
