Top tips for sending Christmas flowers

Christmas Delivery

Christmas is a time for giving – and there’s no better way to celebrate the season with friends and family than to get Christmas flowers delivered.

Handmade, personally delivered flowers make the perfect present at Christmas, especially for those who can’t make the journey to be with a friend or relative. Plus, because your personal message card will be delivered with your flowers, there's no better way to share your personal sentiments than with flowers.

With Christmas just around the corner, now is the perfect time to sort out that all-important gift of flowers for someone special. But what do you need to consider when sending Christmas flowers? How can you ensure your festive flower delivery arrives at the right time?

In order to make your Christmas flowers extra special, here are a few handy hints that will ensure you sort out the best flower delivery for Christmas – with minimal hassle.

  1. Order early. If a florist knows about your order in advance of the delivery day, they can pre-order the best available flowers and foliage, bagging the best blooms at a time when demand is sky high. They can also bring in extra vans and drivers to deal with the extra volume of orders.
  2. Do your research. When you order your Christmas flowers through Direct2florist you can search for a talented, professional local florist where you would like your floral design to be delivered. Our website allows you to read reviews from previous customers, allowing you to buy with confidence.
  3. Think about colour schemes, flowers you would like to include and your favourite Christmas foliage – our florists are happy to create a bespoke design just for you. Alternatively, let our florists choose for you using the best available blooms – simply order using our Florist Choice service.
  4. Always order through Direct2Florist – unlike other big name flower delivery services, we guarantee that 100% of the cost of the flowers is passed on to the chosen florist, meaning the lucky recipient will receive a bigger, better Christmas flower delivery.
  5. Sending flowers around the world for Christmas? By using local florists across the globe, we can help you send Christmas flowers to Auckland, Albuquerque or Aberdeen. Simply select the country where you need your festive flower delivery and we’ll connect you directly with florists.
  6. If possible, try to be flexible with delivery times and dates – Christmas traffic and one of a florist’s busiest times of the year don’t mix – so your chosen florist will appreciate some leeway.
  7. Don’t worry about missed calls! Christmas is a busy time of the year, so if the lucky recipient of your festive flower delivery happens to be out when our florist calls, we’ll take care of arrangements. It’s one less thing for you to worry about!
  8. Those added extras make all the difference – chocolates, teddy bears, or champagne – and all can be delivered by florists with Christmas flowers. Whatever the lucky recipient prefers!
  9. If you want a festive bouquet, Christmas table centre or plant delivered the same day, you’ve got it. Simply order before 2pm (local time) and your chosen florist will do the rest.
  10. Don’t panic! If you can order early, great! If not, our florists offer same day delivery all the way up to Christmas Eve, so if you’ve forgotten to buy a gift for someone special, we can help.

The Direct2Florist Christmas Range will be available to send flowers online with local florists throughout the Christmas Season
