Presenting flowers is a common tradition in Russia. People usually use bouquets as a gift for different holidays, such as International Women’s Day and birthdays, or just for dates or when going to guests. It is much more common to present flowers to women rather than to men, unless they are some famous actors or singers. As people like both giving and getting these beautiful gifts, there are many flower shops in every city, especially in Saint Petersburg.
