Six reasons to send flowers this Christmas

Sending flowers to loved ones for Christmas is often a tradition, but if you are looking for some fresh inspiration, be sure to take a look at our list below. We have rounded up six different reasons why you should be sending flowers this Christmas.

1. It’s been a year. Ditch the crowds, support local and spread some Christmas joy.

Shopping local brings us all greater benefits. It’s about more than the product or service you buy. It’s about keeping the money you spend in the local economy and helping to drive continued employment in kiwi-owned and operated businesses. It also supports a whole community ecosystem, from local suppliers, to courier drivers, and local flower growers and this all plays an important role in helping our economy thrive. Interflora, is a co-operative and owned by 120 local businesses. Our local florists can deliver your floral arrangements and bouquets to almost anywhere - whether that's just down the road or the other side of the world. While every order might be different, it always comes wrapped up with exceptional local service.

2. Flowers make fabulous decorations

Turning your home into a winter wonderland is one of the highlights of the festive season. Whether you want to impress house guests or create a cosy setting for Christmas day, a Christmas table arrangement will help you feeling festive in no time. The Christmas table is a centerpiece of the whole Christmas break, where toasts are made, crackers pulled, and the Christmas dinner enjoyed. Make sure yours is dressed to perfection with a stunning centerpiece made from fresh flowers, and individual floral place settings for the finishing.

3. Deck the Halls with exquisite Christmas scents

Not even the hallway escapes a makeover at Christmas. Order a hallway arrangement that will really wow your festive visitors, or a fresh flower bouquet for the mantle piece. It’s not just stockings that can dress up your mantlepiece this December. Order a gorgeous Florist Choice vase display for above the fireplace that will be the perfect backdrop for opening presents on Christmas day.

4. Want to send a last-minute thank you?

We can still help show your appreciation with beautiful blooms and gifts for your work family. Whether you want to mark someone's promotion, thank someone for their loyalty this year, or show someone how important they are to you, we can help with our range of curated corporate gifts and the delivery of fresh flowers throughout New Zealand, and the world. To boost a business relationship, get in touch with our lovely Business to Business team.

5. When you care but can’t be there.

Super people, deserve super flowers – it’s the year to be grateful and we all deserve a treat, so say ‘thank you’ the next-door neighbour, the gardener, the cleaner, the dog walker, or friends and family that have supported and helped you this year. We are always there when it matters, even when your miles apart. Make it a Christmas to remember with same-day delivery worldwide, your local florist will create a gift just right for them, that’s completely one-of-a-kind.
