Christmas shopping season has officially began and we are all starting to get ready for the happiest time of the year, the time for giving! Some of you super organised folk may have completed your shopping and ticked everyone in your family off your list, and some of you may not have even began to think about the process. Many of you may be too busy to shop, and Christmas may well be the last thing on your mind. Perhaps you’re freaking out about when and how you’re going to get thoughtful gifts for your loved ones bought and wrapped on time!
Fortunately, online shopping offers a world of retail possibilities, making shopping after work hours possible, with next day and same day delivery for those who literally leave it till the very last minute.
An increasing number of British customers prefer shopping online rather than going to a high street shop, according to a recent study. Only 10% said they prefer to shop in store. This may come as a surprise to some, as part of many people’s Christmas experience is visiting festive markets and the shopping that comes with it. Despite this, people opt for online services as they are often more affordable as well as incredibly convenient; which is what consumers require in this fast paced world.
Despite what your shopping preference may be, in some cases, using the internet is a must. The season of goodwill and giving is all about letting our family and friends know how much we love and care for them. Don’t we all have a relative abroad, or a loved one far away who we think of often and miss having in our day to day lives? Perhaps the relationship suffers occasional neglect and maybe you don’t pick up the phone as much as you should, or even forget to ping them the occasional text. Long distance relationships and friendships are really hard to maintain, with time differences and cultural barriers, it often feels like communication is impossible and that everything is against you.
Remember, it’s never too late to nurture or rebuild a treasured relationship by gifting your loved one something special. It’s often a struggle to find the perfect gift, jewellery seems too personal and clothing too difficult to gauge.
A stunning bouquet is always the answer in this kind of situation; roses represent promise, hope, and new beginnings, so what a gorgeous gift to give or receive.
If you’re hitting the online flower market this year, then somewhere like Roses Only could be the perfect place to look online. From classically romantic Red’s to soft pastel blushing pinks, there is a rose to suit everyone’s taste. All women love flowers, and if there’s one thing that’s certain, it’s that classic will always be classy. Roses are known as the most traditional flower in a bouquet, a flower that makes even the most high maintenance girlfriend swoon. Nothing says “I love you” like an exquisite bouquet of roses, and only the best will do.
For hundreds of years, giving flowers have been a method of communication. The traditional originated from the medieval ages, where flowers and each of their meanings were devised. However, giving and receiving flowers became truly popular in the Victorian era. In this age, expressing feelings of love in word was not the done thing. Flowers were a more subtle and cryptic way to demonstrate feelings and expressions. Today, people continue to send ‘Mystery Bouquets’ rendering all the feels of excitement and romance. This idea has maintained and the tradition has evolved into gifting bouquets not just for lovers but for friends, siblings, parents and so on.
Nowadays, the demand for the perfect home is high, and we are endlessly adding decorative final touches to our interiors for the picture perfect home. This means that flowers are always welcomed and appreciated. Not only do they show thought and attention, but they can brighten up homes and workspaces in an instant. A vibrant bouquet will put a smile on someone’s face whenever they walk into the room, and remind the recipient that they’re loved.
