One of my favorite ways to refresh our decor and brighten up our home is with fresh flowers. A pretty bouquet with bright colors instantly lifts my mood, and at least one peer-reviewed research study (Have I mentioned that I’m a university professor?) suggests that viewing roses significantly improves physiological and psychological relaxation. Today I’m going to share a BloomsyBox review with you!
BloomsyBox sends hand-picked flower bouquets sourced from sustainable farms certified by the Rainforest Alliance. We’ve subscribed for 4 years, so this BloomsyBox review is based on our personal experience! There are 4 topics I will be covering in this review: packaging, lasting time, customer service, and variety.
I am not being compensated or receiving any benefits or incentives for this review.
When you purchase a BloomsyBox subscription, you can choose from weekly, biweekly, or monthly deliveries. Each comes with free shipping and you will receive a tracking number when each bouquet ships. Bouquets will arrive in a long cardboard box. The bouquets are hand-tied and wrapped in paper and come with a packet of flower food and an information card with tips for caring for your flowers.
We have learned a lot about flower care from the information cards! For example, some flowers – like Hydrangeas – should be misted regularly to prevent wilting, whereas others – like Mini Calla Lilies – may actually rot if you put them in too much water.
At first, your bouquet may look wilted or flattened: Don’t panic – They just took a trip around the world in a cardboard box! Cut the recommended 1-inch off of the bottom of each stem and put them in a vase with some water. The flowers will perk up within 24 hours.
BloomsyBox flowers are cut and arranged at the farm, so you receive them 2-4 days after they are cut. Many of our bouquets have arrived in bud form, so they’ve lasted much longer than those we’ve purchased at the store. Who knows how long the flowers at the grocery store have been in transit and sitting at the store before you take them home?
Most of my bouquets have lasted 2-3 weeks, with some going strong long after I’ve received the next bouquet.
There has been only one time that my flowers died a few days after I received them. When this happened, I tweeted that I thought I’d done something wrong with my bouquet, and BloomsyBox immediately reached out to me and offered a replacement. I hadn’t tagged the company in my post, so I was pleasantly surprised by the generous customer service.
Perhaps one of the main benefits is the variety of flowers I’ve received. In the 4 years we’ve subscribed, I’ve never received the same bouquet twice. While some subscription boxes I’ve had get boring because they start sending repetitive products, I’m always excited to see the FedEx truck arrive with my BloomsyBox! It feels like a holiday every time I open the box.
In case you’re wondering. Here is what 1 year worth of BloomsyBox flowers looks like:
If you’ve ever purchased a subscription box, I’d love to hear about it! Leave a comment and let me know about your experience.
