I had previously tried out Debenhams Flowers before and was really pleased with them and how vibrant the colours were, so I was excited to try out one of their Christmas Flower bouquets. I chose the Designer Velvet Rose Bouquet* as I loved the colours and the flowers that were included.
The flowers come in a large cardboard box, and inside this the flowers were wrapped in beautiful white wrapping and presented in a gift box which is such a lovely added touch. Nothing was damaged when they arrived and there were still flowers in the buds which made me really happy as it meant they were going to last longer and proves how fresh they are. There was a little card with care instructions on the back as well as some flower food.
As I noted in the previous review these are a little more expensive than flowers you would buy from a supermarket for example, but there isn’t excess foliage to try to bulk it up and the quality is definitely worth it. Debenhams Flowers have a guarantee that they will stay fresh for 7 days and these actually lasted nearly 2 weeks which is crazy! I did have to take a few out after a week as they were dying so the bouquet was made a little smaller, but the rest lasted an extra week. Something that really appeals to me is the fact that they deliver to any UK address for free so it feels like I’m not wasting any money where delivery is concerned. If you place and order by 7pm (Monday to Friday) you can receive them the next day which is brilliant for last minute Christmas gifts, I can’t imagine anyone who wouldn’t be thrilled at receiving one of their Christmas bouquets!
