FTD Flowers chiefly advertises centerpieces but it has several stunning designs that make great gifts, like the Blush Crush Bouquet.

Have you ever found yourself scrolling through Pinterest, looking at beautiful floral tablescapes? While it might seem too challenging to put together a tablescape on your own, a fresh flower delivery from Farmgirl flowers makes it possible.

In addition to traditional evergreen and boxwood wreaths for the holiday season, Harry & David offers other unique designs using eucalyptus, yarrow, reindeer moss, faux roses and more. This flowering gardenia bonsai would make an excellent gift for someone who prefers plants over flowers.
What do you get the person who has it all? How about a monthly delivery of fresh flowers or fresh flower arrangements? Flower subscription services are becoming increasingly popular, as they let you give month after month of beautiful bouquets. Bloomsy Box would make a wonderful gift for anyone on your list, as it delivers hand-tied bouquets from sustainable farms on a weekly, biweekly or monthly basis.
You can choose between original, deluxe and premium bouquets for your recipient — the more expensive plans get you more flowers per delivery — which makes the delivery fee feel lower. The selected items will vary each month and often include favorite items like roses, orchids and sunflowers. It’s a gift that keeps on giving, and it’s sure to put a smile on anyone’s face.
If you’re crafty, you might enjoy creating “do-it-yourself” bouquets, like those offered by Enjoy Flowers. The DIY Collection is actually a subscription service, so you’ll get a new array of flowers delivered on a regular basis. You can choose from three sizes — 20, 30 or 40 stems — as well as between biweekly or monthly deliveries. The flowers will all be complementary, but it will be up to you to put them together into a cohesive arrangement to create your own gorgeous bouquet. Are you up for the challenge?
The DIY option would make a great gift for your favorite creative spirit, but it might also be beneficial if you want to create a cohesive floral display during the holidays. Alternatively, Enjoy Flowers offers both signature and farm-fresh subscription services that provide a hand-tied beautiful bouquet on a regular basis.
