When you are gifting someone a bouquet of roses, you can give them as stand-alone gifts or in combination with other presents. You can combine flowers with a wide variety of gifts to make the gift more special than only the flowers. If you ever consider giving someone a bouquet of flowers, you should think about which gift to pair with it.
Roses are often associated with love and passion, so why not give your loved one a piece of jewelry that represents those things? You can find earrings, necklaces, and rings that feature rose designs, or go for something more subtle with a rose-shaped birthstone. If the gift recipient is like me and you don’t know their birth month, generic rose-inspired stones such as citrine and garnet are used.
Wine Bottle Holder
Another way to repurpose a bouquet of roses for mother’s day is to make it into a wine bottle holder. You can either use the container alone or fill it with something else, like potpourri. A wine bottle holder makes a lovely decoration for the kitchen countertop.
Almost every little girl dreams of having a teddy bear to call her very own. The best part about teddy bears is that you can personalize them. If you tire of seeing that empty vase every time you come into the dining area, you can fill it with roses for your daughter, girlfriend, or wife instead. You can use leftover fabric from the original bouquet or buy new material to match her favorite color. Many online tutorials can walk you through the process of creating a teddy bear to pair with a bouquet of roses.
Roses are often used in aromatherapy, so it makes perfect sense to repurpose them into candles. You can either keep the original scent of the roses or add a new fragrance to the mix, such as vanilla-scented candles. Candles plus roses make for a wonderfully fragrant and relaxing atmosphere.
Chocolate is always a welcome treat. If the roses are white instead of red, you can make white chocolate truffles to go with them. But, if your gift recipient prefers dark chocolate, you can make homemade cocoa. Chocolate with flowers is a romantic combination that has been used for centuries.
If your gift recipient has an eye for aesthetics, then they would probably love to display the bouquet on the wall. Find a frame that matches the décor of their room and pop in a couple of pictures from the bouquet to recreate a personalized art piece. Not only does it look better than an empty vase, but it is also much more affordable.
Even if your loved one is perfectly content with displaying the bouquet on a table, you can always purchase a music box to house it. A small jewelry box or money bank with a rose design will do just fine. A night light can be placed in the bottom of it so that when closed, the roses will glow, perfect for a romantic scene.
There are many unique and practical gifts that you can pair with a bouquet of roses. The possibilities for personalizing the gift are endless, so get creative. Roses are a common gift, but the way in which you present them can make all the difference.
