As someone with a slight online shopping addiction (okay maybe just a shopping addiction full stop..) missing post and having to find the time to go to the post office has been the cause of a lot of stress. It sounds such a stupid thing, but when I pay for next day delivery to get a dress before a party, finding one of those dreaded “Sorry you were out” slips is absolutely gutting. So, much to the office managers despite, I get pretty much every package delivered to work.
This little set up works well for when I have ordered something, however when I had that finger injury a few months back my one of my best friends decided to be a complete sweetheart and without me knowing ordered me some flowers to cheer me up. Sadly, it quickly became a bit of a disaster. The thing is, having to wait and extra day for a DVD or a dress is annoying but having to wait an extra day for flowers means that if they don’t have water or sunlight they may well wilt or die. Long story short and a very mardy friend calling the company resulted in them sending new ones, but still it took the shine of what was a thoughtful and lovely thing to do.
Thankfully, Bloom And Wild have found a solution to this. Bloom And Wild letterbox flowers come in a 60cm x 18.4cm x 3.8cm box which means they will, as the name suggests, fit through your mail box so no need to worry about being in for delivery. I know what you’re thinking, because after the initial excitement of not having to wait in and avoiding the awkwardness of anyone at work questioning why I’m sending myself flowers I mean hey can’t a girl treat herself?! I had a mini panic. I mean, how were they going to fit a whole bouquet in a box that would go through the letter box and even more so, how would they do it without the flowers being slightly crushed?!
They way Bloom And Wild have managed this is genius. The stems are top and tailed in the box and the head of each flower has a small protective mesh which keeps them from getting damaged.
So not only are the flowers in tip top condition when you unbox them, even though I received them 10 days ago, they’re still going strong. Something that you can’t say for most flowers sent by mail, or even picked up from a supermarket. This makes them the perfect gift through the letterbox or even if you just want to treat yourself, Bloom & Wild do 3 month subscriptions for only £50, which to be honest I’m tempted to treat myself to as fresh flowers always make my room look so much brighter.
I was sent a “The Frances” (what an awesome name huh? 😉 ) but as per usual all opinions are my own*
