Cute or Creepy: Should You Send Flowers Anonymously?

Are you going to be sending flowers to a special someone at some point in the near future? You’ll have the option to either include a card with your name on it along with the flowers or to send flowers anonymously.

Most people choose to include a card with their name on it when sending flowers. They want the person who receives the flowers to know who they came from.

They also don’t want to come across as creepy by sending flowers anonymously. There are many instances in which you might send the wrong message to someone by sending flowers to them and not including a card.

If, for example, you’re sending flowers to someone you have a crush on but they don’t know you have a crush on them, they might be creeped out when flowers show up at their front door without any explanation.

But there are lots of ways in which you can send flowers anonymously and do it right. Here are some of the situations in which it’s OK to do it.

When You’re First Starting to Get Serious With Someone

Have you started to get serious with someone after going out on a few dates with them?

At this point, you’ve given them some indication as far as how you feel about them. You’ve also let them know that you would like to continue to date them moving forward based on how things have gone thus far.

Now might be the right time to send flowers anonymously to them. When those flowers arrive at their front door, there is a very good chance that they’re going to know who they came from. They won’t have to think too hard to figure it out.

If you’re worried that they might not get the hint, you can send flowers without putting your name on them while still giving them some hints about who they’re from. For instance, you can write something like, “Wow, that movie the other night was something, huh?”

But even if you don’t choose to take that approach, you shouldn’t have to worry about them not knowing who the flowers are from. As long as you’re confident that they’re as into you as you’re into them, they should get the picture when the flowers show up.

When You’re Celebrating a Special Anniversary With Someone

Are you and your significant other getting ready to celebrate your wedding anniversary?

You should start the day off by sending them a big bouquet of flowers from a reputable florist. Try to find out more about where you should order them from a few days before your anniversary.

Then, pick out the perfect bouquet for them and send the flowers anonymously. They’ll appreciate you starting your anniversary off on the right foot.

They’ll also know who the flowers are from as soon as they show up based on what day it is. There won’t be any confusion as to who is sending them flowers on their anniversary.

You might even want to play the special delivery up by limiting your communication with them prior to the arrival of the flowers. You can let the flowers do the talking for you when your spouse gets their hands on them.

When You’re Looking to Surprise Someone You’ve Been With for a Long Time

Do you want to send a bouquet of flowers to your boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, or wife “just because”? It’s important for those who are in relationships to do things like this every now and then to keep the spark alive.

You might even want to make the flowers that much more special by sending them without a card. It won’t be long at all before your significant other is calling and texting you wondering why they received flowers at home or at work.

You can respond by saying, “Surprise!”, or you can respond by saying something like, “I don’t know—but it must mean that someone loves you!”

Either way, you’ll get a great reaction when you send a “just because” bouquet of flowers. People love receiving flowers for no reason at all and will be so happy about it.

When You’re Trying to Show Your Appreciation for Someone in a Non-Romantic Way

Are you interested in letting a nurse, a teacher, or another professional know that you appreciate the job that they do? Sending flowers to them is one of the many ways to show them how appreciated they are.

You are, of course, more than welcome to include a card with your name on it when you send someone flowers in a non-romantic way like this. It’ll make the flowers feel more personal and let the person who received them know who was thinking about them.

But if your goal is to show a nurse, a teacher, or someone else that they’re appreciated by everyone who crosses paths with them, you might also want to send flowers without a card. There is a chance it could make them feel even more appreciated as a whole than a bouquet of flowers with a card from one specific person.

It’s Acceptable to Send Flowers Anonymously to Someone in These Instances

If you send flowers anonymously to someone, you’re going to run the risk of coming across as a creep in many instances. It’ll make some people feel a little weird when they get a bouquet of flowers without a card attached to them.

You might also confuse someone if you send them flowers for no reason and with no explanation. In some situations, they might even end up being disappointed by the flowers if they suspect they might be from someone else and find out that they’re not.

But if you play your cards right and send flowers anonymously in the right situations, it’ll go over even better than expected. The flowers will make a real impact and will score you some serious brownie points in the end.
