As a single girl, without my own house, I NEVER get flowers, or buy them for myself. (I did used to when I had my own place, and I will again when I buy a house this year) So when Freddie’s Flowers got in touch to see if I wanted to review their flowers through the post offering, of course I wanted to. Flowers, through the post-for ME? I’m all over that. Here’s my Freddie’s Flowers review for you guys.
Freddie’s Flowers are a little bit different. They’re actually a flower subscription service, and for just £22 a month you get a weekly delivery of flowers through your door, each one a different theme, with tips on how to arrange them too!
Frankly, you’d pay about that price for two bunches of supermarket flowers (which there’s nothing wrong with, but there tends to be less variety to choose from in your average Tesco) so I don’t think this is a bad price at all. Oh, and they’ve given me a 10% off code too to share with you guys: LHFF10
The bouquet I was sent was far more unusual than I expected-who knew there were sometimes actual cabbages in a bouquet of flowers!? They arrived in a big box-definitely not something that’ll fit through the door so you’ll need to be in to receive delivery or be able to pickup from the sorting office quickly-wrapped in brown paper and tied with string. There are lots of flowers, enough for a big vase, I had to throw some away as I couldn’t make them all fit! The flowers come with an information card telling me what each one is and suggesting how they should be arranged-helpful, because flower arranging is not my forte. With the help of the guide though I think I did a fairly good job.
I love the idea of a flower subscription box-it’d be a great gift for Christmas, especially for a relative you don’t live close enough to to take flowers yourself. I could see my Grandma loving these, or my Mum maybe.
