In the midst of our unprecedented new normal, it’s the little things that are getting us through the days, especially when we’re spending the majority of them at home. One of the most instant mood lifters out there is a vase full of gorgeous flowers – and now, thanks to M&S’s flower subscription service, you can have a regular, affordable supply delivered straight to your door.
For £20 per bunch and no delivery fee, you’ll get an bouquet of fresh, seasonal flowers, and the service is totally customisable – it’s up to you whether you get a new arrangement weekly, fortnightly or monthly. There’s also no contract to commit to, so you can pause or cancel at any time – perfect at a time when our finances are likely to be fluctuating more than usual.
Having flowers in your own home is always a good idea, but the M&S flower subscription would also make a lovely surprise gift or care package for a friend or family member who’s going through a tough time. In light of the pandemic, the store has made delivery contact-free, so even if they’re self-isolating they can receive their present safely.
Each bunch is scheduled to arrive on Wednesdays, so you could gift them a month’s supply and they’ll have something wonderful to look forward to each week. Plus, they come with a 5-day freshness guarantee, so with a little TLC and plenty of water they should stay looking full and vibrant until the next batch is delivered.
You don’t get to choose the blooms you receive, but the surprise is all part of the fun, and it’ll always be an array of flowers from around the world, including seasonal British blooms wherever possible. Previous sends included bright and beautiful spring tulips and summer sunflowers are coming soon, so you know you won’t be left disappointed whatever turns up your doorstep.
Want to set up a subscription? Head to flowersubscriptions.marksandspencer.com to place your order – if you shop by the end of Monday, you’ll get your first box by Wednesday that same week.
