Subscription boxes are becoming more and more popular with anything from food to beauty products being delivered to our doors and desks.
We were recently the lucky recipients of a beautiful bouquet of flowers from Bloom & Wild, perfectly packaged into a protective box designed to fit straight through the letterbox.

As well as being totally unique in this form of offering, Bloom & Wild also offer a variety of options where you can arrange a single one-off bouquet to be delivered to a friend (for a very respectable £16.95) or take advantage of an ongoing subscription to have weekly, fortnightly or monthly flowers delivered where the cost reduces to £13.95 per bouquet.
We received our gift when we were shooting at Iscoyd Park with Ben from Touch Photography. Both Adam and Ben were intrigued by the concept and were very keen to snap their way through the whole process. Our bunch contained lilies and by the end of a day’s shooting they still hadn’t decided to make an appearance so Adam took them home to practice his flower arranging skills.

Now I have been the lucky recipient of a few bouquets in the past and sometimes they haven’t travelled particularly well. The great thing about florals from Bloom & Wild is you are essentially receiving an order of elegant stems to arrange yourself rather than a ready-made arrangement. There are tips included in the package so you are guided along in the process. The flowers are packed so securely that they arrive in great condition with no lost heads along the way. As the stems are all cut to order, there’s minimal wastage for the company and you receive exceptionally fresh flowers.

Our arrangement of lilies, lisianthus and pussy willow lasted well over a week. Deliveries are made on Tuesdays and Thursdays but as the box fits through the letterbox you don’t need to stay at home waiting for a courier to arrive. Bloom & Wild offer three different collections: the Bright & Wild (From £13.95 for a single bouquet or £40 for 3 bouquets), Chic & Wild (From £16.95 for a single bouquet, £50 for 3 bouquets) and the Luxe and Wild (premium-larger-than-postbox size, From £23.95 for a single bouquet)

Considering the large amount of stems, quality and freshness of the flowers and the free delivery we were all in agreement that £16.95 is exceptionally good value for a one-off Bright & Wild Bouquet. A subscription would make a really lovely thank you gift or birthday present, or perfect if you want to treat yourself with a little splurge.

Do you receive any subscription boxes? Are you tempted to give any try?
