When a friend or family member is feeling unwell, many aim to make their wishes for a rapid return to health known by sending floral gifts. Instead of just selecting a collection of flowers that is pleasing to the eye, choose a floral arrangement that is as meaningful as it is attractive and, in doing so, tailor your message to the task of getting well.

Get well flowers

Daisies

Bright and cheery, daisies make an ideal flower choice when sending a get-well-soon message. Send your floral gift recipient a collection of simple white daisies, or brighten her life even more by selecting a colorful option, such as gerbera daisies. The 15-stem bouquet of multi-colored gerbera daisies available from ProFlowers is guaranteed fresh for seven days, creating a good chance that the blooms will still be bold and beautiful even after the recipient has returned to health.

Peonies

The spring-time flower, the peony, makes a wonderful addition to any hospital bedside table, adding beauty to the space with lush and full blooms. These flowers are less common than some more popular options, making them a unique floral gift choice. They also stand for healing, effectively sending the message to your recipient that you want her to get on the road back to health.

Hydrangea Plant

Hydrangeas

Stunning hydrangeas are a less-common, yet still quite appropriate, get-well-soon flower choice. These clustered flowers featuring delicate blossoms symbolically represent perseverance, making them a highly appropriate gift for someone you hope perseveres over an ailment. Give your recipient some cut hydrangeas, or select a potted version of this flowering plant, like ProFlowers’ Potted Blue Hydrangea, allowing him to enjoy the natural beauty of the present even longer.

Pansies

Send your floral gift recipient the message that she is ever in your thoughts by selecting a floral gift of pansies. These flowers, which represent loving thoughts, are bold and bright, potentially pulling your recipient out of the doldrums that being sick have caused her to sink into. These flowers are most commonly prized for their bold hues and variegated colors, giving them an uncommon attractiveness. Because these flowers are seldom seen in cut arrangements, you may need to select a potted floral gift.
