Saying I'm Sorry: Apology Flowers & Gift Baskets
Apology flowers and gift baskets are classic gifts for saying sorry. They're always welcomed and appropriate for almost any situation—even in business.
These types of classic gifts enhance both verbal and written apologies.
The best part is that you don't need to worry about the flowers or baskets being delivered at the same time as your apology. Because when they are delivered after you apologize, they serve as a heartfelt reminder about how sorry you are and tell the recipient that you took the extra step AFTER apologizing to get them a symbolic gift.
Finally, when it comes to intimate relationships, apology flowers are a better choice than gift baskets and ideal for a girlfriend, boyfriend, husband or wife. They also work well for friends.
Apology Flowers For Personal & Business Situations
When choosing flowers to say I'm sorry, make a little extra effort in selecting the right ones.
Historically, flowers have a great deal of symbolism in both variety and color and some flowers are more appropriate than others when saying I'm sorry.
For example, any spring flower like tulips, irises and daffodils symbolize new beginnings and starting over. So they're ideal for letting the recipient know that you want to start over.
If you know their favorite flower, definitely include it as an option. But before making any final decision consult the list of flowers below to find out why we consider them to be the best apology flowers.
