The Best Flowers to Say Thank You

Nothing says thank you like a bouquet of flowers, and a thoughtful selection can make that special someone feel appreciated and really help to convey your message of gratitude.

But how do you decide which ones to send?

We’ve put together a list of some of the best flowers to help you say thank you, so you can decide which ones are best suited to your situation. 

Say Thank You With These Flowers


Hydrangeas traditionally represent gratitude and honesty, which makes them a sincere choice for those wishing to say, ‘thank you’, and more specifically ‘thank you for understanding’.

Because of this, hydrangeas can be a good option if you’re looking to thank someone for being there for you and supporting you through a difficult time.

Available in blue, green, peach, white and a variety of other colours, these beautiful flowers are guaranteed to bring a smile to the recipient’s face.

Our Out of the Ashes Foliage Bouquet features a Red Preserved Hydrangea.

Yellow Roses

Traditionally symbolising affection, joy and happiness, yellow roses can make a wonderful gift to say thank you to a friend.

Whilst red or pink roses should be saved for more romantic interests, the yellow variety of this iconic flower is perfect for showing a special friend just how much you appreciate them.

Our Yellow Premium Magic Rose is great for gifting to a friend and if kept well, can last for many months or even years.

Gerbera Daisies

Gerbera daisies can be a wonderful, long-lasting expression of gratitude, lasting up to 2-3 weeks when cut.

Vibrant, fresh and playful, these flowers are the best gift to thank someone who never fails to brighten up your day.

Available in all different shades from yellow to purple, you’ll be sure to find a variety in your special someone’s favourite colour. 


Lilies make a stunning, beautiful smelling gift that is sure to make a statement to whoever is on the receiving end of them.

Depending on the colour selected, lilies can hold a number of different meanings so, for an extra personal touch, choose a colour that best signifies why you are saying thank you:

White = Modesty, Purity and Virtue

Pink = Prosperity and Abundance

Orange = Confidence, Pride and Wealth

Red = Passion

Yellow = Gaiety and Desire for Enjoyment


Orchids are a delicate, elegant flower that symbolise luxury, beauty and strength and are also commonly associated with refinement and sophistication.

These flowers are the perfect thank you gift for someone who prefers the finer things in life, as they look right at home in modern, contemporary spaces.
