Why flowers are good for giving as a gift?

There is a chinese proverb which says: "When you have only two pennies left in the world, buy a loaf of bread with one, and a lily with the other." 

Saying of Park Benjamin: "Flowers are love's truest language."

Flowers or bouquets of flowers are considered a very romantic gift for our dear ones. But why we prefer to receive or give flowers? Many research studies have proved that flowers have an impact on our emotional health. The presence of flowers triggers happy emotions.
Flowers also have a strong, beneficial impact on those who receive them. So giving and receiving is the best gift for our near and dear ones.

"What's most exciting about this study is that it challenges established scientific beliefs about how people can manage their day-to-day moods in a healthy and natural way," said Jeannette Haviland-Jones, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology at Rutgers and lead researcher on the study.

A team of researchers explored the link between flowers and life satisfaction in a 10-month study of participants' behavioral and emotional responses to receiving flowers. The results show that flowers are a natural and healthful moderator of moods.

- It effects on humans increasing extraordinary delight and gratitude.
- Flowers have a long-term positive effect on moods.

- Flowers make intimate connections. The presence of flowers led to increased contact with family and friends.
"Common sense tells us that flowers make us happy," said Dr. Haviland-Jones. "Now, science shows that not only do flowers make us happier than we know, they have strong positive effects on our emotional well being."
