Great floral gift ideas for this Christmas

If you’re looking for the best online Christmas gifts, the answer has to be flowers.

Universally loved, you can do no wrong sending hand-tied bouquets of flowers to anyone. Whether it’s a partner, friends and family, a service provider or a work colleague, everyone loves beautiful blooms!

So, what are the best festive flower arrangements to send? We share our favourite floral recommendations and provide some handy hints about Christmas flower delivery in the UK and Ireland.


The best Christmas flower arrangements

It’s true that red, white and green really are the prevailing colours of the season, and the same goes for the flower world. We get a lot of online orders for blooms in these festive shades. So, what petals are perfect for the silly season?

This time of year, customers always ask us, “What is the Christmas flower?” The answer has to be the poinsettia. Over time, this vibrant, happy red flower came to symbolise the star of Bethlehem thanks to its – you guessed it – very clearly defined star shape. Absolutely delightful, it is everywhere this time of year. Adding poinsettias to your Christmas bouquet really does say season’s greetings.

As much as we love their little red stars, there are superb Christmas flower design ideas other than the poinsettia. If you’re looking for other inspiration, we suggest you consider a striking orchid. It not only makes for a very classy Christmas present but it’s also the gift that keeps giving. When cared for properly, it is not unlike an indoor plant; it should last and last.

Red Rose Hand Tied Arbour Blooms

Red roses

Granted, roses are for any time of year. However, a bunch of deep red roses is a truly exquisite bloom and one of the best online Christmas gift ideas to consider. You can opt for a bunch of long-stemmed roses in their simple magnificence or add some festive cheer with additional extras. No matter what the arrangement, it will make for a spectacular gift.

Christmas flower table decorations

Christmas table flowers are a surefire way to perk up any room and give it an instant seasonal spirit. We’ve already mentioned red roses. However, they are so beautiful that they deserve a second shout-out here. A bunch of long-stemmed roses complete with white wax flowers, eucalyptus or pine branches (resplendent with baby pine cones) really sets the tone for some great Christmas craic!


Speaking of eucalyptus, this is a wonderfully diverse leaf that will work in many different settings. Run it along the length of your Christmas table, over your mantlepiece and down your stairwell. Not only will it look superb, but the house will also smell divine.

Obviously, no blog about seasons greeting flowers can be written without mentioning holly or mistletoe! It is de rigueur this time of year and both must be hanging somewhere to add a bit of sparkle and fun to the day’s celebrations.

Christmas Eve flower delivery

It’s important to organise your Christmas flowers delivery in UK and Ireland in advance. Whilst flower delivery around Dublin on Christmas Eve is possible, you likely want to avoid an eleventh-hour rush. The lucky recipient would probably also appreciate that their gift arrives a little earlier, as they no doubt have plenty to do before the 25th…


However, of course, if you’re caught between a rock and a hard place then we will do everything we can to get your Christmas flower bouquet delivery to arrive before Santa Claus. Please place your order no later than on the 22/12/23.


We hope this has given you the inspiration to decide what flowers for Christmas are best for your home or as part of a festive gift. We wish you the happiest of seasons greetings and all the best for the New Year ahead!
