Girl or Boy, people prefer Pink.

London, 4th June 2013

With the Royal baby due in the summer, luxury roses retailer, OnlyRoses has shed some light on the gifts sent to new mothers. It seems that regardless of the baby’s sex, pink roses are preferable to any other colour. “They’re sending them to the mother not the baby,” explains OnlyRoses owner Sabine Schmitt.

Competition to send flowers is rife. “People love to be first,” says Sabine. “If they think they’re not going to be one of the first to send flowers to the hospital, they’ll wait and send something huge to the house. It seems the average spend is under £60 but OnlyRoses has clients who will happily send several hundred pounds worth of flowers. “We had one client who sent a bouquet to his wife every day for a month,” she says. “He seemed really happy to have had a boy.

Another had us deliver 1.000 soft pink roses to his wife's private suite in a clinic in London where she gave birth. That was extraordinary."

If you want to give flowers that are really memorable, OnlyRoses recommends their exclusive InfiniteRose. "It's a real rose, naturally preserved to last longer. The colours are spectacular and because InfiniteRoses don't need water or refrigeration, they're ideal to send to hospitals and clinics." Sabine also points out that when the fresh roses have wilted, the InfiniteRose will still look beautiful.
