So many of us will be traveling over hill and dale this Thanksgiving to gather round the table with our nearest and dearest. In fact, last year, 50 million people went 50 miles or more to do just that, and we at Trias Flowers don’t expect this year to be any different. If this sounds like your plan come November 23, we want to clue you in to a tradition that will express your hearty gratitude to the people welcoming you into their home: the host gift.
The host or hostess gift has been around a long time and crosses the globe. Some cultures even have rules about this type of gifting. Here in the U.S., we’re a little more flexible in how we offer our host gifts. But as to what to give, well, we’re enormous fans of flowers. So much so that we even made a design for that, and it’s aptly called Orange Gratification.
We’re believers that the host gift can arrive before, during or after Thanksgiving, depending on the preferences and travel considerations of the giver (that would be you). One thing’s for sure, you should keep your floral gift small. This not only makes it easier to transport, but it doesn’t burden the host with something large to place in their home for display. With so much else to manage, your flower gift should arrive to its recipient like a breath of fresh air. In the case of this design, some beloved flowers are used together in harvest hues, making this a definite crowd-pleaser that will blend in with other seasonal decor.
Call on us at Trias Flowers this holiday to help you find the perfect little thing to offer your gracious hosts
