How many times have you either been stuck for what to buy your loved one for Valentine’s Day (or birthday & anniversary for that matter) or you’ve been on the receiving end of something truly lack-luster. We know it’s the thought that counts, but there’s nothing better than giving or receiving something that’s actually fab.
Here’s where we solve the world’s problems (or maybe just the Valentine’s Day gift issues).
Since opening its colourful doors in 2005, Edible Blooms has been delivering a vast range of unique gifts through their huge network, both in Australia, and New Zealand. They’ve been there when we’ve needed to make someone smile, celebrate new babies, congratulate people on new jobs/houses/marriages, and yes, they’ve been there for us when we’ve needed a romantic delivery to our partner’s office to ensure everyone they work with gets a healthy dose of colleague jealousy.
With fruit bouquets for the healthier people out there, chocolate bouquets for the sweet tooth, bouquets with wine, cheese hampers, and even beer hampers, we’ve found a gold mine for people who find gift giving a royal pain. There’s also cooking hampers (complete with Sprout cooking school vouchers), seafood hampers, pamper packs with divine skincare products, scotch, vodka and other spirit based hampers, kids’ cooking hampers and the list goes on.
Best of all, Edible Blooms have same-day delivery, and are delivering all week in the lead up to Valentine’s Day (for the workplace wow factor) and they’re throwing in a free box of truffles with every order over $50 which is delivered on Thursday Feb 11th and Friday Feb 12th. They are also delivering on Saturday and Valentine’s Day Sunday (within capacity) so get in early if you want something to roll up on the actual day.
