7 Reasons To Gift Beautiful Blooms This Christmas

Bursting with beauty and guaranteed to be unique, Interflora is here to explain why hand-crafted flowers should be at the top of everyone’s Christmas list this season.

In a year where we’re all likely to need a little extra Christmas spirit, it’s time to think outside of the (gift) box to show your loved ones just how much they mean to you. An Interflora bouquet is the perfect Christmas gift. Each one is hand-crafted, hand-delivered and every order supports local florists – that’s sure to put you on Santa’s nice list! 

1 They’re one of a kind

Our local florists hand-craft every single floral gift, using only the freshest and most festive stems available on the day. Because every gift is one-of-a-kind (no production lines here!), our flowers look and feel seriously special. Best of all? All our bouquets are delivered by hand perfectly pre-arranged so your gift will wow from the moment it arrives with minimum fuss to keep it looking its blooming best.

2 Champion your local high street  

This year has been tough for high streets across the country, so shopping local is especially important this Christmas. By choosing to send flowers with us you’re not just delighting the ones you love, but supporting independent florists on the high street and helping safeguard their future in uncertain times. Feels good, right?

3 Show you care even if you can’t be there

If you find your nearest and dearest are not so near this Christmas, a beautiful, one-of-a-kind bouquet is a wonderful way to show you’re thinking of them. We deliver to over 130 countries, so whether you need to send an arrangement to Australia or a bouquet to Bolivia, our brilliant florists can help you stay in touch with the people that matter at Christmas.

4 They make the home feel instantly Christmassy

 Rich reds, vibrant greens, the soft shimmer of sparkling pinecones – nothing beats gorgeous natural decor at Christmas. Whether it’s a showstopper of a wreath, or a bouquet bursting with seasonal foliage, flowers can make a home feel instantly Christmassy. We also think a bloom or two (or four!) on the table on Christmas day adds a touch of something magic, especially when combined with gently glowing candles (can you tell we have a definite soft spot for candle arrangements this year?)

5 They’re the go-to-gift for the impossible-to-buy-for

Everyone has one on their list: that person who is impossible to buy for, in which case flowers are always the answer. Unexpected but always welcome, flowers are a timeless choice at Christmas (and ingeniously double up as a gorgeous seasonal centrepiece for all the celebrations). After all, nearly everyone could do with a little more flower power in their life.

6 They’re an eco-friendly gift 

From mass-produced plastics to wrapping paper that ends up in landfill – not all gifts for us are gifts for our planet. Flowers are by nature 100% compostable. Even better? We use 100% recycled ribbon, biodegradable cellophane and eco-friendly gift boxes so our gift wrap is kind-to-the-planet too.

7 They’re perfect for last-minute gifting

Are you all too familiar with the last-minute dash around the shops just before Christmas? Do you somehow always miss someone off the list (sorry, Aunt Hilda!)? We can help. We’re delivering blooms right up until Christmas Eve – and lots of our florists are even doing same-day Christmas Eve delivery – so there’s no need to panic. We’ve got you covered.
