I Just Ordered Myself Flowers From The Bouqs Co.

When was the last time you received flowers ? 
The Bouqs - Premium Farm Direct Flowers
Mother's Day? Valentine's Day? Your Birthday?? 
Well, I can't even remember the last time I got flowers *cough - someone smack Mike for me* So when I read about The Bouq.co and they offered for me to review their services, I thought heck yea, it's about time I do something for myself. 

So, what is Bouq's ?

The jist of it is they are an online company that sells curated  bouquets of fresh flowers. Curated - meaning the bouquets are already styled gorgeously by experts.

And how are they any different than other online florists ?

For starters Bouq's cut the flowers on the day you place your order and they are delivered straight from the farm so you get the freshest bouq possible! Which also means delivery time is just 4 days after cut, vs the 10-14 days everywhere else. Bouq also only charges a flat rate of $40, shipping included !! NO hidden fees and no annoying up-sells. Their 3 step checkout that they claim is really that simple. All I did was browse the site for the bouquet I fancied, placed it in my cart and paid. Not a minute later I had a confirmation email in my inbox. Now I am can't wait for my flowers to arrive -- The date I chose was 9/5 so keep an eye out for an update post on that day :-)
The is the bundle I ordered - Desperado - Pink Roses with Purple Phlox
Even after reading my sch-peal watch this short video its funny and explains it all. 

On top of the one flat rate bouquets, Bouq also offers subscriptions services.  
( information below taken directly from their site )

Subscriptions are completely optional and completely awesome. 
Save money (10%) and simplify your life!

NeverForget will email you before a birthday or anniversary to remind you, and so you can confirm or change the order. But you'll never again forget an important date.

JustBecause will surprise her with a bouq on a random day of the week for no reason whatsoever. Just Because.

Or perhaps you want fresh flowers weekly, bi-weekly or monthly? Sign up for Regular Blooms!

These subscriptions make your life easier.



So far I am please with the process, ordering was beyond easy and I am liking the idea of the one flat rate price. I will most definitely be keeping Bouq in mind for the future- ie my Mom's Birthday. I mean the flowers are grown on an active volcano- how cool is that ?!

  3. The bouquet is beautiful. It is about time a flower shop thinks of sending reminders so that people don't forget important dates.
