National Kissing Day: Different Types of Kisses and Their Flower Meanings

23 June 2016
By Ashley

To celebrate National Kissing Day, we thought we’d have a bit of fun and match the different types of kisses to their flower meanings!

For instance, Roses and Calla Lilies perfectly capture the feelings of a first kiss, while red roses symbolize the passion of a french kiss. Did you know that pink Carnations stand for a mother’s undying love, and represent mum’s magical kisses? Stocks are a symbol of affection, a happy life and a content existence and are a perfect match for a friendly peck on the cheek. Find out more about our flowery kisses!

When you think of summer, does your mind wander off to a barbeque or an outdoor party with all your friends and family? Do you imagine popping on a bikini, sunbathing in the garden and pretending you're on holiday? Maybe you want to grab your trainers and go for an outdoor run. Or are you the one making sure everyone's lathered in sun cream? Whichever it is, it's a good indicator of your summer personality!

To celebrate the launch of our summer range , we've matched some of our favourite flowers to each personality. So, are you the Socialiser, Nurturer, Sun Worshipper or Heart Racer? Maybe you're a bit of all four!

The science behind your smile…

We all know a beautiful smile can light up a room. But did you know that smiling is good for your health?

It also releases a mood-lifting chemical, meaning a smile is a 100% natural anti-depressant. Get smiling and get happy!
