I’m a gift person. I love giving and I won’t lie, I love receiving. Especially flowers. Hubby knows that all he has to do to make me swoon is grab a bunch of flowers from the store and bring them home. I love it when he buys me them and although they’re not expensive I don’t get them as often as I like. In fact in a survey done by the California Cut Flowers Commission, it appears that I’m not alone. 42% of women don’t receive flowers as often as they would like which if you ask me sounds like an awfully low number!!!!
To help out with that they’ve created these cool “Hint Cards” that you can place at various spots around the house reminding that special someone how much you love flowers. These Hint Cards incorporate a little romance or a little humor and are the perfect size to be left under pillows, inside lunch bags, stuck on mirrors, tucked in billfolds, placed on plates or just delivered from hand to hand.
Did you know that the California’s cut flower industry generates $10.3 billion in economic impact for the State of California? The cut flower industry overall generates 121,950 California jobs and $3.3 billion in wages for other industries which in this day and age is pretty cool.
Before they debut these cards in retailers and florists across the state later this year, the CCFC would love your feedback. So they’re offering 25 of my readers the pporunity to win some of the cards. Then, if you enter the survey here you’ll been entered to win a bunch of flowers every month for a year which would be awesome!
To make it even better, the folks over at Fleisman Hillard arranged for me to receive a bunch of these amazing flowers which were absolutely amazing and lasted quite a while. They were just beautiful flowers (full of my favourite gerber daisies) and they’re going to give one of my readers a bunch of flowers too!!! Told you this was gonna be a goodie!
So, here’s the scoop: I have 25 sets of hint cards and a bunch of flowers to give away! To enter all you’ve got to do is leave a comment telling me why you want the flowers. Then, to make it unbiased I’ll randomly pick 25 winners and the folks at Fleishman will pick their favourite answer out of all the comments to win the flowers.
