Flowers are an important gift item in modern society. They are suitable as gifts on a variety of occasions- Birthday, Graduation Day, Mother's Day and Valentine's Day, to name a few. One thing that is worth keeping in mind while presenting or receiving flowers as gifts is the meanings associated with different flowers. These meanings came to be conventionally accepted and seem to vary from culture to culture. In the western culture, there are some standard meanings associated with different flowers. The convention of associating meanings with flowers has been systematized and is now talked of as the language of flowers.

The reason for preferring flowers to convey a message rather than use words is very simple. This way, the communication of the idea becomes more beautiful and subtle. The visual effect seems to make the experience of giving and receiving gifts stick to memory in a more effective way than a mere stream of words.
