If you aren’t going to spending Christmas with a loved one this year due to different locations and circumstances, sending a Christmas gift through the post doesn’t have to mean hassle and faff. I try and avoid the post office like the plague during December as it’s just a nightmare and crazily busy. Luckily for us there are retailers like Blossoming Gifts that allow you to purchase gifts via their website, to get shipped to your gift recipient’s address. I was kindly gifted the Blossoming Gifts Cinnamon Spice Christmas Bouquet, and I couldn’t think of a more Christmas appropriate floral arrangement; it’s so pretty and festive.
Although it’s the gifting season, there’s no reason why you couldn’t treat yourself to some Christmassy blooms and Blossoming Gifts have a lovely range of Christmas gifts to choose from including hampers, plants, trees and bouquets. Plus they have a cut off date of the 23rd of December, so you still have time to place any last minute orders for gifts you may still need to buy.
The Blossoming Gifts Cinnamon Spice Christmas Bouquet £29.99 came wrapped in frosted plastic wrap, tied together with a black ribbon and secured within the flower box to keep the blooms safe during transit. They also came with a sachet of Chrysal plant food, and a Blossoming Gifts care card to help you get the best out of your flowers.
Blossoming Gifts Cinnamon Spice Christmas Bouquet
- Red Rose x3
- Red Germini x3
- Red Carnations x3
- Cinnamon Picks x3
- Hard Ruscus x2
- Red Berry x1

The bouquet is so bright and bold with a lovely mix of textures and festive scent. The eucalyptus smells so fresh, and the cinnamon has a subtle spicy scent which isn’t too overpowering either. I really like that there’s berries, and the mix of red and green makes it the perfect Christmas centrepiece or display. Sometimes ordering flowers online can be risky as the arrangement sometimes don’t look anything like the photos on the website, but this bouquet looks exactly like the images on Blossoming Gifts and it’s beautiful.
I’d love to know what your favourite Christmas flowers are?
