Shopping has been a nightmare this year. I have NO CLUE what to buy many people on my holiday shopping list. In addition, work has been exhausting and I don’t have the energy to go to the stores after work. And to be honest, I rather NOT go out in public, due to the pandemic.
This year, I have been doing all of my shopping online. I’ve picked up only one gift at the store, and that gift is for the gentleman that cleans the buildings in the condo complex I live in.
I prefer to shop online. I find it very convenient to sit in my jammies on my couch and shop the ‘net. You can buy pretty much everyone online.
I am grateful that Amazon Prime offers free shipping, and they ship out quickly. Most shops charge a huge fee for fast shipping. Forget about overnight shipping. That usually costs more than the gift it’s self.
If you are looking for a last minute gift, one that can be shipped quickly, look no further than Overnight Flowers. Overnight Flowers is exactly what the name implies – flowers that you can receive overnight (the next day).
Overnight Flowers offers FREE shipping. I’m all for saving money, especially because we live on a budget.
Overnight Flowers offers flowers for all occasions – Just Because, Sympathy, Happy Birthday… They even have lovely bouquets for Christmas, as well as holiday wreaths.
The brand was kind enough to send me a bouquet to check out for myself. I was sent to review their “Candy Cane Bouquet.”
When you think about about candy canes, most people think about the red and white stripes. That is exactly what the Candy Cane Bouquet is – a lovely bouquet of red and white roses.
The Candy Cane Bouquet is available in three different size options – Classic (12 Stems), Grand (24 Stems) and Luxe (36 Stems). Each bouquet comes with a simple vase to display them in. It looks like most of their bouquets are available in different sizes to suit any budget, not just their holiday bouquets.
Overnight Bouquets had my flowers at my door the next day. I was at work when they arrived, so they were left for me by our mailbox until I got home. With traditional floral delivery services, someone has to be home to receive the flowers, and sometimes even sign for them. As a busy working parent, I am not always home and in the past, I have missed deliveries and had flower deliveries dropped off with my neighbors. I like that I don’t have to worry about that hassle with Overnight Flowers.
The flowers arrived in perfect condition. They looked as if I just picked them up from a local florist. It’s hard to believe these were shipped to me in a box.
The flowers arrived with “extras” I didn’t expect to receive.
The paper the flowers were wrapped in had my name on them. How cool is that? I “fuzzed” out my last name for privacy reasons.
I appreciate companies that go above and beyond to make their orders more special. This personalized paper was a total surprise. I still have it. I am trying to think of how I can repurpose it.
Even my cats enjoyed the package from Overnight Flowers. Cat’s cannot resist boxes, no matter what their shape or size is. Ha Ha.
Another surprise goodie in the Overnight Flowers package is a small photo frame with a “Happy Holidays” message inside. After the holidays you can remove that image and replace it with your favorite photo. What a lovely idea!
I really like how this looks. I might just keep it “as is,” and pack it away with our holiday decorations so I can take it out and display it year after year.
I like the image they used in the frame too. It’s simple, yet elegant.
As for the flowers themselves, they were beautiful! The flower “heads” (for lack of a better word) were very large. I don’t normally see roses so big. I was very pleased and very impressed by that.
The flowers were very healthy, especially for being shipped in a box. They were also very colorful. The red was so vibrant and the white was pure and clean.
I neglected to take a photo of the flowers in the vase the day they arrived. This photo was taken a day or two later (if I remember correctly).
Notice how HUGE the flowers are. WOW!
Here is another view. Please note, there were equal number of white and red roses. In this photo you can’t really see the few white roses on the side facing the wall.
The flowers lasted a decent time too. I hate nothing more then receiving flowers, only to have them start dying a couple of days later. I’d like flowers to last several day, if not a week or more, if possible. If you care for them (cut the stems, give them food, change the water), that is possible.
Here are a few other holiday and non-holiday bouquets from Overnight Flowers.
