Everyone has a go-to move when showing support for friends. For Taylor Swift, it’s sending flowers. Obviously. Swift’s floral gestures don’t just extend to her squad, however, but to strangers as well.
This week, the “Look What You Made Me Do” singer sent an arrangement to an off-duty female LAPD officer who was injured in the Las Vegas shooting. Swift, 27, sent bouquets to the police station as well.
“Talk about a class act! @taylorswift sent multiple bouquets of flowers and plants to our station, as one of our officers was shot in Las Vegas last night. This is one of the smaller arrangements. Beautiful flowers can bring a smile to anyone’s face. Much respect,” an LAPD intel analyst wrote alongside a (now deleted) photo of the flowers.
So what does it take to get a thank-you from Taylor, if you’re not a hero? If you fall into one of these categories, you have a good shot:
You’re her competition: Last week, Swift sent a large pink arrangement to singer Cardi B after her song “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)” bumped “Look What You Made Me Do” off the top spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.
Nothing says “no hard feelings” better than a pretty pink arrangement!
You kept her secret: It’s amazing that details about Swift’s “LWYMMD” video didn’t get leaked until release day. The singer must feel that way as well, because she sent her backup dancers in the music video flowers for keeping their mouths shut.

This time, she went with white for everyone:
You’re supportive: You don’t have to know Swift to get a thank-you. During her groping trial in Denver, employees working at Craftsy across the street from the courthouse posted messages of support (made out of Post-it notes) for the singer throughout the ordeal. Well, Taylor took notice and thanked them for “brightening my day for every day I was in Denver.”

Another way you can show your support for Swift? By reading her album booklet. Apparently, that’s what Lea Michele did, and she got a pretty thank-you, too.
You let her sample your music: In “LWYMMD,” Swift samples Right Said Fred’s “I’m Too Sexy,” so naturally they get flowers, too.

You listen to her music: If Swift sent flower arrangements to everyone who jammed out to her tunes, she honestly might be broke. We’re not sure how she discerns which fans get a floral shout-out, but model Aira Ferreira made the cut.
She couldn’t come to your graduation: After a teenage fan invited the singer to come to her high school graduation party, Swift had to send her regrets … with a handwritten note and large bouquet.

Not that we think Swift would ever slum it with her bouquets, but seriously. How does she know all of the good local florists across the country? Props to her for mixing it up, too, and not giving everyone the same thing.
