"Keep the items that sparks joy."
Using these words as her armor, Marie Kondo, the star of her own Netflix series, has been cluttering social media feeds preaching her gospel of minimalism and simplicity.
Under her wisdom, trash bins are filling up as people toss the gifts they have collected over the years. Pajama sets from grandma two Christmases ago, some strange kitchen gadget that was definitely re-gifted, and...the half wilted roses that were beautiful at the time but is now giving off a unfortunate sweet scent.
Flowers are one the best ways to celebrate love for another person. Whether it's the person you've been dating for a month, your sister at graduation, your mother during her birthday, or the love of your life for the past 50 years, roses spark that joy.
But that joy wilts as the flowers do.
Preserve that joy by gifting your loved ones preserved roses. They are real flowers, but maintain their beautiful appearance with no maintenance efforts. Instead, they capture the beauty of the moment and will continue to spark joy for your loved one for a year! It's a gift that Marie Kondo, but more importantly, your special someone would keep, guaranteed, for over a year.
