Qualities: Chic, contemporary, exotic
Best suited for: A nonconformist fashionista
The dynamic orchid makes the perfect gift for a charming, outgoing person with a unique outlook on life. “I think the woman who chooses an orchid for her home is a chic, contemporary person who wants a beautiful bloom that will last a long time,” says Anne Weil of Couture Bouquets, a floral design business in Naples.

A traditionally regal blossom, the calla lily calls to mind a certain elegance and grace. “If you had a girlfriend or significant other with a striking sense of style, you might give her a calla lily because it’s a very sleek flower that reflects that same modern style,” says Amanda Hayes-Florance of Fresh, a floral studio in Naples.
