I love flowers and, for as long as I can remember, I have made a point to pick up a fresh bouquet every week or two. It’s the simplest thing I can think of to brighten up a room or a mood. The same goes for when I need to send a gift- flowers are always the first thing I think of but if I am not familiar with a florist in the area and online deals end up being a bajillion times more expensive than advertised (looking at you, FTD), I end up going with a Plan B.
Enter The Bouqs, an online flower company that ships gorgeous bouquets for the flat rate of $40. When I first heard of The Bouqs, the whole eco-friendly, grown on the side of an active volcano thing, while super cool, didn’t entirely lure me…I just wanted to know 1) was this really going to cost $40? 2) travelling from such a distance, would they still be alive? 3) would they look remotely like the photos on the website?
Answer? Yes. Yes, yes, yes.
My flowers arrived packaged within an inch of their life, gorgeous, bright and 6 days later, they are still going strong. AND it really was only $40 for everything- flowers, shipping, volcano transport, whatever. Awesome. And there’s a feature where you can set up flowers to be sent based on special occasion (if tend to forget birthdays or like to plan ahead) or every week/month if you want to get someone used to being treated to blooms all the time. I bring my grandma flowers every time I see her but as that isn’t as often as I like, Hazel might find herself enrolled in the monthly plan…
