Onam – the festival of flowers

Onam is a festival that is celebrated by everyone in Kerala and represents the summer harvest. People of Kerala consider this as a cultural festival than a Hindu festival.  Among all the activities Pookkalam or the flower arrangement in front of the houses marks the starting of Onam.

This will give you an idea of how much importance is there for flowers in Onam celebrations. Every day of 10-day celebration children arrange flowers in front of their houses to welcome their beloved king. Enough about the festival let us look into some of the gifts that can be given to your loved ones.

People mainly use flowers from local flora to decorate the front yard of their houses. You can get a bunch of colorful seasonal flowers as a gift.

If you are planning to get a bouquet delivered to your girlfriend’s or wife’s doorstep you can order a vase full of bright red roses. This option is really helpful if you are not staying in Kerala.

But if you want to send Onam gifts to your boyfriends or husband who is staying in Kerala, order a basket of different wines so that he can enjoy with his friends.

As mentioned above, Onam is the celebration of the summer harvest. So just like the flowers, you can gift a basket full of fruits to wishing prosperity in the coming days of the year.

In the last three days of the celebration, people use only white colored flowers (Leuca Indica) to decorate. So a basket of white and pink carnations can be one of the best Onam gifts you can give to your family members.

Giving flowers and homemade sweets to your friends, neighbors, and family members is a tradition of Onam celebrations. This is celebrated worldwide by Keralites.

For teachers – the “best minds” in your life

Just like our parents, teachers play a crucial role in our upbringing. It is justifiable to have a special day dedicated to the “best minds” in our life. Each country has different dates for celebrating teacher’s day because each country honors their scholars who have contributed to the country.

However, the World Teachers’ Day is celebrated on October 5th. In India, the teacher’s day is celebrated on September 5 which is the birthday of Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. He requested to celebrate his birthday as teacher’s day and he was a great teacher to his students.

Teachers usually ask us to make promises to ourselves so that we can be better persons. They will definitely make us do it until we do. So this year you can gift a bunch of Asiatic Lilies to your teacher as a promise to him or her.

If you do not know let me tell you that lilies represent purity and promises. This can be one of the best teacher’s day gifts. If you are planning to celebrate the day with your teacher you can order a cake along with a tall arrangement of roses before visiting his/her house. Try to arrange a small cake cutting ceremony with your classmates if you can.

Even though we respect our teachers not all teachers get a special space in our heart. For that special friendly teacher, you can order a bunch of carnations.

Carnations are the flowers that are used to express devotion and friendship to someone. The last one on this list of teacher’s day gifts is a combo of pineapple cake and a bunch of red roses.

Red roses are for best wishes and the cake is for celebration. Let me remind you one last thing – do not forget to wish your teacher.

Why do you gift flowers?

We all love flowers and it is a great feeling to receive flowers from your loved ones. You would have received a bouquet of flowers for many occasions. It can be on your birthday or on your wedding day. The tradition of gifting flowers had been there in the human history for hundreds of years. Ancient Romans and Greeks considered flowers “heavenly” because they related them to Gods.

In our modern era, the most important flowers we use are roses, carnations, orchids, etc. I would prefer a bunch of red roses when I visit my family members since it will give them a vivid vision on how much I love and appreciate them.

Now, let us think about the question – Why do you gift flowers? Even with other gifts, we prefer to give a flower because flowers remind of the freshness and warmth of our love to our loved ones.

That is why lovers exchange flowers on Valentine’s Day. There are many online websites on which you can order combos of flowers, cakes, and even soft toys for your lover.

There is no other gift than a beautiful bouquet of flowers to express how you feel.

This tradition is not applicable for only Valentine’s day but also for occasions like friendship day, mother’s day, and father’s day. You can get a glass vase full of pink lilies to your loving mother on mother’s day.

The point here is that flowers are the easiest and most effective way to tell somebody about your emotions and feelings. Let me tell you that each flower has its own different meaning. For example, red roses represent pure love. We will talk about them later in our post. Next time when you are confused about how to express your feelings, select the suitable flower and gift it.

I have mentioned the gifts that have sweets as the combination with the flowers. That does not mean that you cannot gift cakes or chocolates with the flowers. The choice depends on the person who is receiving the gift from you.
