Often simple gestures of kindness and good-will are all that is needed to turn someone's day around. Flowers are a great way to brighten a room and send a smile someone's way. For those that are not well, flowers are also a great way to surround them with reminders of positive wishes to get better. It's even more of a delight when the gift is unexpected and turns up as a complete surprise to the recipient.
When sending a get well gift to a child or a male, our varied range of gift options mean you don't have to send flowers. Consider a gift basket or adding in some extras like teddy bears, balloons or chocolates.
Most hospitals and homes will allow flowers at the bedside. But a couple of tips can make it easier:
Consider sending an arrangement of flowers in its own container or vase, as some hospitals do not always have vases on hand to keep your flowers hydrated.
If the person receiving your get well soon gift is in intensive care, check with the hospital first in case they do not permit flowers in the room for hygiene reasons.
Avoid selecting a plant as gift, as some hospitals do not allow plants due to the bacteria found in soil.
Check your recipient is still a patient at the hospital before sending your gift, as the patient may only have a short stay in the hospital or could check out early. Flowers and balloons can usually be delivered same day on weekdays when ordered before 2pm AEST, and because of this are often a good choice of gift.
If the person has checked out before delivery to a hospital, the flowers can sometimes be delivered to a home address but an extra delivery cost may be required depending on where they live in relation to the hospital.
Also check the name your recipient is registered under. Women may be in under their married or maiden name.
