A little treat for little ol’ me

| 2 Comments

This week I arrived home after a hard days work to find a massive box on my doorstep. The arrival of a parcel is always exciting and it was especially great today as this was a delivery of flowers from Debenhams. I am baffled how a bunch of flowers can be sent through the post without them dying or getting bashed up, but as I lifted the huge bunch of roses out of the box, I could see that they’d been well packaged in an upright position, and the base of the flowers were wrapped in a kind of towelling tissue saturated in water. I’m sure there’s a technical name for this, but it reminded me of a flannel infused with wet jelly and it did the job of keeping my roses well watered on their journey to me. I happily unwrapped my flowers to arrange in my retro vase while the heavenly scent wafted all around my house – just lovely!

I was shortlisted for Company magazine blog award a couple of weeks ago and what better way to celebrate than by receiving this beautiful bouquet of vintage-esque pink roses from Debenhams Flowers. Also in the box was a pampering gift set of delicious-smelling Covent Garden Sanctuary Spa products including a body wash, body scrub and their 24 hour moisture body lotion – a lovely extra treat! This was a lovely surprise and I’m very impressed with Debenhams Flowers – I would definitely order flowers from their spa range for my friends and family for their birthdays, and I’ve also found out that Debenhams provide a baby gift option to accompany their flowers – perfect for sending to new parents who live far away before I can get to see them and their baby, because the flowers are delivered the following  day if you order before 4pm! There are lots of bouquets for all budgets, some even including free gifts and chocolates so if you’re interested in trying out the Debenhams Flowers service for yourself, I’ve just noticed that they are currently doing a special offer of £5 off everything from 7th-19th May 2013 using this voucher code: FWRAW5. All in all, it was a lovely treat that I was delighted to receive, and I’m sure anyone else would be thrilled too!
