Let’s be blunt- would you take the risk and give yourself flowers?

Beloved Flower Lover,

“A person’s life unfolds as a reflection of the mental associations made with conditions experienced. These associations become the subconscious script informing and motivating our reactions to life.  Our mental associations can either promote or hinder the expression of authentic desires”. Isaiah Mcgee

We thought about Mcgee’s point and the process of gift giving to self.

We notice from our customers that some are very happy to give flowers to others, and they are quite different to those who choose to give flowers to themselves.

Being at the coal face of customer contact, we find that they see the world differently and approach discussions around self love quite differently. Some minimize either approach. Some embrace. Some don’t care, some care deeply. Some are looking for guidance and willing to follow. Some want to decide for themselves and will come to their own conclusions about how to use anything, including flowers to express love to themselves or others.

No one approach is better or worse than another. A lot of what we have noticed over the years is the extent to which someone is taking an inner journey. We do notice that what we do here is about keeping that discussion open . That’s what we value and value those who are curious enough to continue to explore how flowers can be used as a metaphor for both relationships.

Flowers for self gifting and flowers for giving gifts to others has really proven to have opened up an amazing journey of discovery.


We wonder what you have discovered?
