Put them in a cool area

What are Easter plants? Lilies? Narcissus? Tulips? Hyacinth?

I am sure you can get some in "low bud" so that they won't drop the flowers before you give them.

Another beautiful plant for gifting this time of year is Easter Lily, Lily (Lilium longiflorum) and they can be planted out in the garden for re-blooming next year.
