Is your love named David, Andrew or Robert? If yes, you may well have landed on your feet because according to a new study by one of the UK’s leading online florists Serenata Flowers, men with these names sent the most flowers in Manchester. A staggering 96% of Mancunian men sent flowers to their loved ones, but those named Vikram, Douglas and Peter may have missed the memo as they ranked the least generous.
For the most part it seems chivalry is most certainly not dead, with 94% of men in England choosing flower giving as a token of appreciation. In Stockport, men named David were the leading Romeo’s, with Gavin in second and Robert, Anthony and Kevin following, whilst men named Paul fell short finishing last on the list.
Flowers are the first choice by men in England over any other gift type, closely followed by gift sets, gift message cards, balloons and vases. Could traditional gift giving lead to a strong and stable partnership? According to ONS marriage rate statistics UK towns with the highest flower senders also have the highest flower purchases; In Surrey, England there were 5206 marriages and a whopping 809 flower senders, whilst in Herefordshire there were 1036 marriages with just 58 flowers sent.
Ever since the first blossom of the aquatic plant Montsechia Vidalii flower 130 million years ago, red roses have continued to pull at the heart strings of many, so it comes with little surprise that nothing says “you’re the one” more than a fresh bouquet of flowers. Blossoms not only boost emotional health and mood aiding relaxation and concentration, but also add colourful charm and sweet scents into our everyday lives.
The Iris represents hope and wisdom and is used for many different occasions, whilst roses are the definitive symbol for passion and love. Tulips embody grace and elegance and the Sunflower is thought to be a sign of longevity, emitting warmth and adoration wherever they are placed. Far more than just a pretty face, these delicate darlings also emit powerful communication skills through the language of flowers known as floriography, a means of cryptological communication through the use or arrangement of flowers.
