Give these Portland flower shops a sniff

Artful arrangements make a thoughtful gift no matter the occasion

A flower arrangement from Gifford's Flowers in Portland displays colors ranging from hot pink to purple and lavender with some light blue, white, and yellow mixed in.

Oftentimes a bouquet can make it better.

Nothing can brighten a space — or someone’s day — quite like a bouquet of fresh flowers. Their colorful blooms and sweet aromas can often express our thoughts and emotions better than words, so it’s not hard to see why they’ve been humanity’s go-to gift for eons. Read on for our list of local flower shops that can help you say “I love you,” “I’m sorry,” or “I’m here for you” through the language of petals.
