If your gift contains fresh flowers that come in a hat or heart box:
1. Place in a cool area
Place your hat box flowers in a cool room or shaded area. Avoid direct air-conditioning, direct sunlight, extreme heat, dust and ripening fruit. All of these conditions may make your hat box flowers wilt faster.
2. Add water daily
Add roughly 100 ml of water once daily by pouring it down the middle of your hat box into the base of the flowers. Don't worry about getting your box wet. As long as you do it gently, the water will seep into the sponge that is placed at the bottom of every hat box.
3. Remove wilting petals
When a flower begins to wilt, remove the petals or the whole flower from the hat box. Flowers bloom and wilt at different times. Removing wilted flowers will help to avoid the spread of bacteria to the other flowers.
4. Mist flowers daily
Spray or spritz your flowers with clean tap water once a day to give it additional hydration. Flowers can absorb water from places other than the base of its stems. To do this right, use a bottle with a fine mist setting and spray from 6 inches to 1 foot away from the flowers to ensure an even coverage.
For the other items in your gift:
1. Read and follow the care instructions
Your gift may come with unique items like soft toys, chocolates, snacks, wines, baby goods and etc. For these items, do read the care instructions provided with your item to care and store them properly.
