We may be living in an age of email, texts and social media, but I still believe there's something pretty special about sending a bunch of flowers or a greeting card to let someone know you're thinking of them. In fact, scrap that - I think the fact that it's slightly quaint these days makes it even more special!
When I heard about Flowercard, I was intrigued. As the name suggests, it combines mini bouquets with a cute greeting card, so you can send someone some beautiful blooms together with a heartfelt message, straight through the post. I thought this was a lovely idea, and very kindly, they offered to send me one so I could check the service out for myself. This is what I received. Pretty, no?
It arrived with the regular post in an attractive blue box, and certainly made me smile when I opened it up. It was ever so slightly battered from its journey, but once I had given it a little bit of TLC, it looked really lovely. Flowercard provide a few tips on how to look after your gift, and include a little pipette so that you can water your flowers and prolong their life for as long as possible, which I thought was a nice touch.
The card I went for is called Peach Frills, but there's loads to choose from. If you fancy having a browse, you can do so here.
A little bit more special than just a card, but without any need for the recipient to arrange a huge bunch of flowers, Flowercards are a very cute way to show someone you care!
What do you think? Would you send a Flowercard, and would you like to receive one?
