Hydrangeas are our #6 pick for the best thank you flowers.
Hydrangeas were first discovered in Japan and according to Wikipedia, they’ve appeared in poems of the Nara period (710-794). They may just be a the perfect ‘thank you for forgiving me’ flower bouquet as it’s said a Japanese Emperor gave them as apologies to his maidens.
These versatile blooms with a delicious aroma also hold the meaning of gratitude and honesty. They’re the perfect thank you gift to show your best friend how much she means to you or to send home to your Mom as a ‘just because’ bouquet.
