Quad stuck in the mud

They helped me out of this

I got stick in the mud while riding my quad bike out to drop of some fish guts. There were 4 teenagers sitting on the beach that noticed my trouble. Often todays teenagers would just sit there and laugh – but not these guys; they happily came over to give their time and muscle to get me unstuck. Nice eh!

Ordinarily when someone helps me out I would buy them a bottle of wine as a gift or a bunch of flowers if they were inclined to appreciate that type of gift. But these guys were too young for that so I thought about what I could buy online and have delivered to their parent house as a thankyou. Teenagers all like chocolate, biscuits, cake and all kinds of goodies so I figured this was a perfect solution. So after a quick Google I found an online gift basket site that had a good selection and chose a hamper with mostly sweet products in it.

This is what I sent, it was well received and reminded me that it is so easy to take others generosity for granted. How easy was it for me to do a quick search online and find a suitable present for these guys. Update: I recently needed to find a suitable flower site in Australia for a thankyou gift. This one lets you search for an online florist in the header of the site

Best Valentines gifts

The problem is most guys have no idea what flowers they should get. Well don’t worry because I am here to help. Here are 5 of the best flowers for Valentines Day.

Roses – Roses will always be number one. They are a very delicate flower that sends a message of love. You only buy red roses for someone you truly love and care about. Did you know there are over 150 different types of roses? Its true and all of them have a different meaning. You have white roses, pink roses, yellow roses, orange roses and even black roses. This means no matter what the occasion, be it Valentines Day or a birthday, roses can fit the bill as the perfect gift.

Lilies – Lilies are another type of flower that are extremely popular around Valentines Day. They are very romantic yet elegant all at the same time. Lilies are very classy. And just like roses, they too send the message of love. And while lilies come in a variety of different colors, the most popular one is white.

Carnations – Carnations are great because of their price. If you know anything about roses you know they are quite expensive. Carnations on the other hand are way more affordable. They are very feminine and make the perfect gift for the woman in your life.

Tulips – Simple, elegant, romantic. Those are the three words that best describe tulips. These are for the woman who enjoys the simple things. A woman who isn’t overly complicated. During the season of love thousands upon thousands of Tulips are always sold.

Alstroemeria – This is probably a flower you have never heard of. Yet, it is extremely popular around Valentines Day. It is often compared to the lily as they have a lot of similarities. As a matter of fact, the Alstroemeria is often called the Lily of the Incas. And while you probably can’t pronounce the name, just know they make a great gift for that special someone in your life.
