If you have something special in mind for your ailing friend or loved one, look no further than flowers. A bright, bountiful bouquet is just the thing when someone is feeling more than the winter blues and needs a good dose of sunshine and cheer. Flowers, studies show, are major mood enhancers, and they also promote a positive outlook. Patients who have flowers or potted plants in their hospital rooms use less pain medication and have lower blood pressure than their flower-less counterparts.
We here at Gordon Boswell have a rich collection of get well flowers designed to perk up anyone suffering during cold and flu season.
While it’s very hard to narrow it down to some of Gordon Boswell’s favorite things during this time of year, we’ve done it. See our very best seasonal blooms, arrangements and more in our Holiday Gift Guide, a real one-stop shop in that you can find something for anyone in its pages – we promise.
One of our most beloved lines, Coton Colors, makes a spectacular gift for the holidays. Once filled to the brim with bright winter blooms and arranged with a touch of whimsy, these distinctive floral containers become the gift that keeps on giving.
At Gordon Boswell, we believe in being charitable all year long, and in helping you do the same. We donate to Junior Achievement Of The Chisholm Trail, headquartered here in lovely Fort Worth and an incredible program that connects 35,000 students from kindergarten to 12th grade with businesses, entrepreneurs, educators and volunteers. JA’s objective? To both reinforce how important school is to future careers and to teach students what those careers may entail. It’s an effort we’re proud to support, but we also make it easy for you to join in the charitable fun through our Helping Hands program.

Whether your friend or family member is in the hospital or sick at home, choosing beautiful plants and flowers from Gordon Boswell Flowers is a guaranteed way to make them smile.
Which flowers are right to send? If your loved one is at home, virtually any florals are appropriate, but you may wish to ask the experts as to which blooms have the least scent. If someone is not feeling well, an overwhelming fragrance may be offensive, so stay away from highly aromatic flowers – instead, choose gerbera daisies, tulips or sunflowers. They are not only low fragrance but are cheerful and easy to care for. Continue reading
