Know someone feeling a little under the weather? Our thoughts of kindness and sympathy are often just the thing to help turn sickness around and brighten someone's day. Fresh flower bouquets and cheery arrangements are a simple yet caring way to bring joy and improve the spirits of our friends and family.
Popular get well flowers include yellow blooms, which are sure to bring light and sunshine to their day. If the recipient is recovering in hospital, we highly recommend sending a delicious hamper filled with either savoury snacks or sweet treats, or even a tasty selection of fresh fruit.
Petals Network can deliver get well gifts same-day across New Zealand and to all major hospitals. Just place your order before 2 PM weekdays and 10 AM Saturdays and we'll deliver your get well flowers that day.
There's nothing like a nice gift of "Get Well" flowers. When you can’t be there in person, send your well wishes with flowers. You can send get well soon gifts to friends and family. Though they will probably love flowers, Petals can arrange for other gifts like balloons, hampers and gifts.
Delivery Tips for the Hospital
Most hospitals and homes will allow flowers at the bedside. But a couple of tips can make it easier:
Hospitals may not always have vases to hold cut flowers so consider sending an arrangement of flowers in its own container. All the recipient has to do is add water occasionally.
If the person receiving your get well soon gift is in intensive care, the hospital may not permit flowers in the room for hygiene reasons.
Due to the bacteria found in soil most hospitals will not accept plants and potted basket arrangements.
Keep in mind that many people are only in hospital for a short time these days so they may have checked out before your gift arrives. This is especially true of non-floral gifts that might have several day delivery. Flowers and balloons can usually be delivered same day and so are often the best gift.
If the person has checked out before delivery to a hospital, the flowers can sometimes be delivered to a home address but an extra delivery cost may be required depending on where they live in relation to the hospital.
Also check the name your recipient is registered under. Women may be in under their married or maiden name.
