Unless you live under a rock, you most likely know that MOTHER’S DAY IS COMING!! I’ve seen bazillions of Mother’s Day gift idea posts and Pins, so I usually pass on reiterating everything you already know. …Buuuuuuuuut…then I discovered something totally innovative and new, and knew I had to tell you about it! It’s a monthly fresh flower bouquet subscription (yes, just like all those beauty boxes that are all the rage right now,) that allows you to send flowers to your mom (or whomever), every month (or as many months as you want), surprising her with different FRESH flowers every time!
Here’s why I love the bouquet subscription idea:
The company I discovered is called BloomsyBox, and they are basically the Birchbox of flowers. I, personally, am not a big fresh flower gal. It makes me sad that they die, yadda yadda. However…my mom LOVES fresh bouquets (as do bazillions of other normal people out there. I’m just a shrew, I guess.) and I know they not only make her feel special, but brighten up her home for days (or even weeks!) which makes my heart happy for her.
But here’s my dillemma…
My mom isn’t local. As much as I would love to drive to Costco, grab a $15 or $20 bouquet, drive it to her house, and hand-deliver it…it just isn’t happening. Logistically, it just doesn’t make sense to drive 12 hours to Oregon to deliver a bouquet. Go figure. So I’ve sent her flowers for various occasions. Do you want to know what the last bouquet of flowers cost me to have shipped to her? Between the flowers, card, delivery fee, sacrificial lamb fee, and sale of my first born child, it added up to…wait for it…wait for it…wait for it…a little over $55! FIFTY FIVE DOLLARS! FOR ONE BOUQUET!!
I basically passed out.
But it’s for mom! And mom loves flowers! …said as I regain consciousness then passed out again…
So here’s where BloomsyBox comes in. I heard about them and immediately looked into it. They deliver fresh-cut flowers, to your door, for less than $35 (including shipping!). Would this not make a fabulous Mother’s Day gift for someone special?? My brothers and I usually pool our resources for a gift, so with 3 of us we could each spend only $35 and buy her a 3-month membership. Affordable for us, the gift that keeps on giving for her.
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!
I reached out to them to see if they would provide us with an exclusive deal on top of that because, well, that’s just what I do kids, and they said yes!!
