You can choose a favorite flower, arrangement, or color in your flower gift. Flowers provide you a great way to send a personalized holiday gift to a family member. You can even choose to purchase wholesale flowers and create your own wholly unique bouquet.

Another ideal holiday gift is our subscription program. We offer weekly, bi-weekly, and monthly plans Subscription plans make a perfect holiday gift for a variety of reasons. Most importantly, they are a gift that keeps on giving. Flowers unfortunately will die. With our subscription plans, the recipient will always have fresh blooms in their home. For a flower-lover, this gift is a must!


Friends could definitely use some holiday flowers right about now. You likely know these people intimately, just as you do your family. Depending on the nature of your friendship, a small or large bouquet may be appropriate. Again, we recommend tailoring the flowers to each person. Make sure you send your friends flowers they will love during the holidays.

One of our Christmas-themed bouquets, like Fluffy Clouds, Silver Bells, Christmas Marvel, Fireplace, or Wilderness, is a great choice for your friends. You may also want to consider a subscription plan as a gift. Monthly plans work wonderfully for friends. That way they have a specially-curated bouquet to remember you by all year long.

Co-workers And Employees

No, flowers are not too personal a gift for your co-workers and/or employees. They may be a perfect way to show these people that you are missing them over the holidays. Depending on your career, it may have been a long time since you’ve seen your employees or co-workers in person. It doesn’t matter whether you are giving a gift to your employees or to co-workers, flowers can be appropriate. You can even send them to your boss this holiday season.

There is some etiquette to keep in mind when sending flowers to co-workers and employees, though. You would do best to stay away from flowers that have associations with love, romance, or too personal. Roses are probably not a great choice for this group.

You should also probably stay away from flowers that have too strong a smell. Some people are extremely sensitive to smell. They may also have scent-related allergies. Stick instead to a seasonal and brightly-colored bouquet like our Sparkling Grass or Wild Berries.


Flowers are also a good gift to send to a neighbor. If your neighbor is close, you could even have the flowers delivered to you, and then bring them to your neighbor. This will allow you to ensure the bouquet looks great before you give it as a gift. With us, at BloomsyBox, you never have to worry about a good-looking bouquet. We guarantee the safest shipping for your flowers. You can have them delivered to your neighbor without a second thought.

The same etiquette goes for neighbors as it would co-workers or employees. You want to be a little careful about sending too personal a bouquet. And, definitely stay clear of any flowers that are associated with love. You don’t want anyone to get the wrong idea.

Flowers have been shown to have a benefit on our psyches. They can help lift our mood and make us smile. That ability alone makes them a great holiday gift. But, this year, with people visiting much less in person, we need flowers more than ever.
