Blossoming Gifts for Mothers Day & a Competition

I was sent a pretty orchid for my mum part of the Mother’s Day Flowers available from Blossoming Gifts.  It came well packaged so thankfully all the delicate little stems, buds and flowers remained intact and the orchid looked beautiful.

An orchid makes an enchanting gift, they are considered a symbol of love so what better gift to thank your mum for all she does.  My mum has really started to like orchids and this is the third in her growing collection, so I knew she would be particularly pleased with her surprise delivery.

You can enjoy the blooms of the orchid my mum was sent for a guaranteed three weeks but hopefully longer still.  With the right care you can be rewarded with more cycles of blooms so your gift will keep delighting the recipient for a long time to come, longer than a bouquet of flowers.  Although my mum is still a fan of bouquets too, she just enjoys filling her home with all different types of flowers.  They always brighten her day.

I can see why this particular product is a best seller, they just look so exotic and the Phalaenopsis orchids suit being kept indoors.  If you do not have a garden these types of orchids are one way to bring some natural beauty into your home.  They have other plants roses, the more unusual Bromelia and pink lily, so if you fancied another idea those look lovely too.  The Red Rose Plant Gift Set with wine and chocolates included is an option if you want a bigger grander gesture, but whatever your budget you can find a thoughtful gift from Blossoming Gifts.

If you want to place your own order with Blossoming Gifts I have the rather generous code BGIFTS33 which will give you 33% of a bouquet (not including the flowers by post bouquets).  I am also giving away an orchid if you would like to enter please fill out the form below by the 3rd of March, please note that by entering your details you agree to join their mailing list.

a Rafflecopter giveaway I also have more giveaways so please do see if anything else tickles your fancy!
