Show Your Love with Flowers on International Women’s Day

Sunday, March 8th, 2015

International Women’s Day is a special day acknowledged around the world every March 8th, where women are celebrated and shown extra love and respect. Both men and women give women’s day gifts of flowers, chocolates and presents to make that special woman feel special, and mothers, daughters, partners, friends and colleagues are all recognised. Flowers are perfect additions to International Women’s Day events and also make perfect presents – here are some floral women’s day gift ideas to inspire you.


Lilies. With their long, elegant petals and often sweet fragrances, lilies make perfect women’s day gifts. They have been revered for centuries: the Ancient Greeks even believed they sprouted from the milk of the goddess Hera. Different lilies have different meanings, with white lilies representing purity and innocence. This Pure bouquet incorporates beautiful white lilies and roses to make a truly special gift for International Women’s Day. Peruvian lilies, or alstroemeria represent friendship while delicate lilies of the valley are traditionally given on a second anniversary and are also popular at weddings. To express your love for a special woman, as well as giving a gift of happiness full of the joys of spring, choose a colourful lily bouquet like stunning Secret Garden arrangement.

Roses. A bountiful bouquet of red roses is the ideal way to show love and affection – perfect women’s day flowers for wives and girlfriends on this special day. Red roses show love and passion, while pink roses are a softer, romantic option. Elegant white roses, or flowers in more pastel shades like charming Lickety split bouquet are perfect gifts for family members and colleagues, while yellow roses are a joyful spring option symbolising friendship. Flowers24Hours have a truly stunning range of rose bouquets in all the colours of the rainbow, paired with other beautiful blooms like exotic orchids, sweet smelling freesias, lilies and peonies.

Mimosas. In Italy, it is traditional for men to give the special women in their lives yellow mimosa on March 8th, as an expression of respect and love. Even women give each other these fragrant, delicate flowers in female solidarity. It is believed that the tradition began in Rome after the Second World War. As the trees blossom with these beautiful yellow flowers at this time of year, the gift of a mimosas also signals the beginning of spring – and their yellow colour creates feelings for happiness and joy.

Flowering plants. For longer lasting women’s day flowers choose a flowering plant to bring a springtime treat into your special woman’s home. London flower delivery shop Flowers24Hours have a beautiful range – including hydrangeas and exotic anthuriums. Or choose an orchid for a truly breath-taking gift, like this stylish white orchid plant.

And don’t forget to add an extra gift when you order your flowers online – adding chocolates, wine, a cuddly teddy or a balloon are bound to make your flowers extra special and bring a smile to your special lady’s face this March 8th!
