Christmas is a time of celebration, gift giving, and decorating, a time when people traditionally express their affection for family and friends by buying or making them gifts. It can be a time of great stress for some, however, who desire to provide the perfect gift for someone they genuinely care for, but whose tastes and preferences seem a mystery. This is a common issue for men who wish to buy for their mothers and other influential women in their lives, as well as for those who live too far from their loved ones to interact with them enough to observe the sorts of items they like and admire. Fortunately, there is one readily available gift that solves this and a host of other problems for gift givers quite nicely, and that is the gift of flowers. Here are six reasons why flowers make the perfect Christmas gift.

Christmastime is the season of cheer, but for many, the winter blues still persist. Although it may seem a little crazy, science has shown that the decrease in sunlight beginning in the late fall and lasting through the winter can have a drastic effect on your mood. For some people, the lack of sunlight causes the brain to produce less serotonin, which is the chemical most often associated with mood, energy, and weight stability. In extreme cases, this is called seasonal affective disorder, or SAD.
However, even if you don’t suffer from this disorder, it’s not uncommon to feel a little under the weather during the winter months. The combination of cold weather and fewer hours of sunlight in a day is enough to give almost anyone a case of the blues. But, how can we combat these symptoms?
Well, studies have shown that flowers have a positive effect on people’s moods, which is why winter is the perfect season to give the gift of a cheery floral arrangement – or to purchase flowers to display in your own home.
