This Valentine's Day, get yourself some roses that go a step beyond the usual in both color and container, and jazz up February 14th for someone special.
We tend to think of our romantic roses in one way only - a dozen long red stems rocketing from a simple vase - but there's so much more variety in the floral landscape than that. V-Day roses, like so many things, have become modernized, and we here at Gordon Boswell are right in line with that trend. Read More about A Valentine’s Gift That’s A Cut Above The Rest
When color experts Pantone announced their choice for Color of the Year, Ultra Violet, there was a bit of a collective gasp. What a rich, dark, arresting hue, people said. And one that conveys a lot of mystery and mysticism. Since the COY is meant to embody the spirit of the times, designers, florists and other creatives were left wondering, what does this color say about our culture right now? And where are we headed?
Such deep questions about a color, and yet exactly the kinds that Pantone is trying to provoke. On the other hand, we here at Gordon Boswell are excited to work with it. Read More about Flowers Inspired By Pantone’s Color Of The Year
How much do you love your girlfriends? Well enough to have an entire day devoted to celebrating them? We at Gordon Boswell agree, and guess what? There's a day for that.
The idea for Galentine's Day was first proposed in a 2010 episode of NBC's Parks and Recreation, when main character Leslie Knope took all of her ladies out to a long lunch and gave them gifts the day before Valentine's Day. She called it "Galentine's," and the rest is history. Each year, more and more women are taking the chance to celebrate their friendships on February 13th.

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. Read More about Getting Well With Flowers
What's the best way to keep spirits up this winter season? Flowers, that's how.
We here at Gordon Boswell aren't kidding around; studies show that flowers have the ability to lift the mood, increase mental clarity and contribute overall to a person's outlook. And during winter, when the days are short and the nights long (and seasonal affective disorder a real concern), flowers can be a wonderful way to combat the winter blues. There are many reasons to introduce them into your home during the colder months. Read More about Winter’s Fetching Flowers

Secret Santa is a popular gift swap in a work setting or amongst a group of friends, and for good reason. The cloak of anonymity on the part of the giver lends a lot of anticipation and just plain fun to the exchange. When everyone finally gets their gifts, it's a riot to try to figure out who gave what to whom. On the other hand, Secret Santa can lead to a lot of gimmicky gift choices, a fate we here at Gordon Boswell would love to help you avoid this year.
