Everyone has someone on their shopping list that’s hard to shop for, right? I know I do. I’ve got a couple who already have everything, don’t need anything, don’t want anything, etc, etc. So fun to shop for them! I’m kidding, I’m kidding. But seriously, every year I struggle with unique gift ideas. This year I’ve partnered with Bloomsy Box to share with you a brilliant idea that anyone on your list will absolutely love!
What Is Bloomsy Box?
Bloomsy Box is a monthly fresh flower subscription delivery service. Tell me who wouldn’t love to receive a box of fresh, perfectly gorgeous flowers right on their doorstep every month? I was kind of interested in how this was all going to work. I mean, flowers…in a box? But they arrive in perfect condition!
Here’s how it works: You pick your Bloomsy Box plan. There are three sizes with different price points to choose from. (See below.) Then they’ll pick your flowers. It’s a surprise each month so you don’t know what you’ll be getting. But they’re always beautiful, always a complete bouquet of REAL flowers, none of that filler of leaves and baby’s breath. You know what I’m talking about. These are SOLID bouquets.
Here are the different options and price points. Note that shipping is included in all of these! Last time I had flowers delivered I’m pretty sure the delivery cost me just as much as the bouquet, so I think this is a great deal. And they are FAST. I literally got mine the day after they were ordered.
A couple of other things that make Bloomsy Box a stand out: They guarantee your satisfaction. Don’t like your bouquet, or have any issues with it at all? You don’t pay for it. If you’re traveling or just want to skip your monthly delivery, you can do that anytime as often as you’d like. And if you choose to unsubscribe, that’s super easy to do as well.

Our Bloomsy Box Review
I have never had flowers delivered to my door in a box like this so I was so interested to open it up and see how these were packaged.
The bouquet is wrapped in paper with a bow around it (hand tied with love!), and there are very simple instructions inside on how to get your bouquet on display. The box includes a plant food mix, so mix that into the water, snip the bottom inch of the stems off, and place your flowers in the vase. Easy!
Note that the bouquet isn’t just loose in the box. The stems are secured with a zip tie at the bottom and stayed in place until I cut them out.
And this part is so awesome. Every bloom had a protective sleeve over it to keep it in tact. Not one petal fell off of this bouquet as I was getting it ready for the vase!
The stems are long and sturdy. I like this because it gives you a lot of options with your arrangement in terms of the size vase you want to use. Cut the stems a bit shorter for a shorter vase if you’d like. But you can really see that this is a hardy bouquet. I opened this up over a week ago and the flowers are still sitting on my kitchen table in front of me while I’m writing. They’re beautiful!
Because of the protective sleeve on each flower, you can see the petals were a little closed up on my sunflowers. I didn’t mess with them for fear I’d damage them, and after about a day they opened right up.
I think the plant food they provide definitely helped to extend the life of this bouquet, and I’d suggest really keeping an eye on the water in your vase. My flowers sucked it down pretty quickly and I had to refill a couple of times. That will help your bouquet last longer as well.
Aren’t they GORGEOUS? I keep moving them around the house so I can enjoy them in different places! You know the dead of winter is going to be the very best time to send these as a gift. A good cure for the winter blues? Fresh flowers that let someone know you’re thinking of them!
I love Bloomsy Box as a gift idea (and hey, no one said you can’t send yourself a gift, ladies!).
