Since the dawn of human history, flowers have been given as gifts. In ancient times, flowers often held religious meanings. For example, in ancient Greece, flowers were given to the family of a deceased person to prevent the haunting of the living. In ancient Rome, brides carried bouquets of flowers to scare away evil spirits.

In Victorian Europe, floriography, the "language of flowers" was used to send secret messages. The type of flower, color, and arrangement all "said" something to the receiver of the gift. Flower dictionaries helped people to decode the message. Some of these symbolic meanings are used to this day.

Today, flowers are still frequently given as gifts. They often mark special occasions, such as graduations, weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, or the birth of a baby. The may also be given to say "I love you" or "I'm sorry." Certain holidays, such as Valentine's day, are also associated with flower giving.
