Review: Blossoming Gifts Flowers

This post contains products sent to me for review. All views, pictures, words and opinions are my own. I have not been otherwise compensated for this post.

Flowers are a good gift when you have family spread about the place. I try and organise floral gifts for assorted family birthdays, celebration days etc and often I send flowers by post. These have been a little hit and miss over the years so it's always nice to trial new one. Blossoming Gifts recently got in touch to ask if I'd like to try out their service and since nobody else ever sends my awesome mum flowers, I thought it would be nice to celebrate a recent personal goal she set herself.

One of the biggies with flower delivery is how much control you have over the day and whether your flowers are going to arrive in one piece. These beauties were delivered next day by Royal Mail, which is a major plus in thatI have been known to need last minute gifts and the bouquet was really well packaged- well wrapped, with a proper provision for keeping them moist at the end of the stems and attached to the box so they didn't rattle around. Unfortunately the delightful Royal Mail man clearly couldn't read because he left the box upside down on the doorstep, but it's fair testament to the packaging that the whole bouquet remain completely in tact! 

Cheap flowers are something I'm often on the hunt for if I have multiples to do- this happens a lot when we visit relatives and we have 3 or 4 ladies to buy flowers for at once. With a number of very pretty sub £20 options on the website, I'm thinking about organising post-visit flowers next time- it would save my usual trick of managing to get pollen on whatever I happen to be wearing- always a great way to make an impression....

On top of the beautiful flowers my mum has been enjoying, they've also kindly sent through a discount code for you to use at your leisure- simply enter the following code: BGIFTS33 which will get you 33% off a bouquet (excluding a small range of Flowers By Post). I have given my partner a nudge to send a floral thank you to his parents for organising a great ride for the Womens 100 recently and flowers are a great way of reminding someone you're thinking of them, all the more so when there's such a great discount to be had.... 

Thanks to Blossoming Gifts for organising these beautiful flowers- I'm glad I was around to see my mum open them and enjoy them, and it would be great to see any pictures of anything you order using the discount code they kindly provided.
