Blossoming Gifts | Review & Giveaway! {CLOSED}

Monday, 26 September 2016


Is there anything better than receiving a beautiful bunch of flowers? How about a little box of chocolates alongside! I was lucky enough to receive just that from Blossoming Gifts.

Blossoming Gifts offer a wide range of online gifts to choose from, including fresh hand-tied flowers, hampers and wines. All of which are available for next day delivery across London and the rest of the UK! So whether you're buying for a special occasion or just want to treat a loved one, they've got something for you.

I was sent the 'Polka Dot' flowers and chocolates gift set:
"Soft apricot versillia roses with bright and cheerful scented yellow lilies, white reagan chrysanthemum, lovely pink veronica and delicate purple phlox, a gift to be adored.
Handmade with love just for you".

They arrived well packaged, secured in two layers of plastic wrapping and tied to the box. I was very impressed that the bunch I received, looked very similar to the pictures shown online. Of course the lilys were still closed, but that just means I get more life out of them.

After removing the plastic layers I found the attached plant food, and followed the instructions given in the accompanying booklet. This little booklet also had a lovely note from Blossoming Gifts - although I'm sure this is where you can add you're own if you're the gift giver.

I was slightly disappointed with the 'free chocolates'. The box is absolutely tiny, and I wouldn't really call it a gift. The brand are also not one I've heard of and as I'm a fussy chocolate eater (it's Cadbury's or nothing for me), I don't think I'd enjoy them. Luckily my husband did though.



Overall though I am very impressed with my bouquet. My flower arranging skills aren't great so they'll never look as good as the picture, but they do look and smell absolutely beautiful! Prices for this bunch start at £39.99 which I think is very reasonable, considering the size and the quality. I also love that you can also pay an extra £5 to include a vase!

Fancy trying some for yourself?

Blossoming Gifts and I have teamed up to offer you a £40 voucher to spend on their website. So whether you want some flowers too, or fancy trying a hamper or personalised gift, just enter via the Rafflecopter widget below!


Disclosure - I received the above bouquet for the purpose of this review. All opinions are honest and my own.
