Christmas Flowers Make For a Perfect Gift
Christmas shopping can be stressful, especially when you have a lot of people to buy for. Different people have different personalities. It can be hard to come up with Christmas gift ideas that everyone will love.
Lucky for you, we're happy to be your elves and help you complete your list with some amazing Christmas lilies or Christmas roses. Our florists put their hearts into preparing your flowery Xmas hampers, so they're just gorgeous.
Starting strong with our timeless Merry Red Roses: you can never go wrong with these. Red is a classic Christmas flower colour that will tie in well with any festive decor. They also make a lovely romantic gift to your significant other this holiday season.
If you're looking for a more unique Christmas gift basket, a mix of Merry Red & Yellow Roses should do the trick. Yellow symbolises friendship, while red roses convey love. This makes it the perfect Christmas present to give to your friends.
Add in a vase, a handmade chocolate bauble and some delightful bubbles to upgrade your gift to a luxury christmas hamper.
Christmas Hampers and Gift Boxes
Our Christmas chocolate baubles are adorable, but did you know you can add more to your gift? Our Christmas bundles come with a bauble, champagne, or candle, based on your preference.
If roses aren't your thing, Australian Native Wildflowers have a wonderful texture and festive vibe. This beautiful bunch is a mix of our very own flora put together into a stunning Christmas flower arrangement. As if there wasn't enough variety, our Australian Natives also come in five different sizes.
We have similar packages for White Lilies too, which are oh-so heavenly scented! Our Christmas Lilies bundles come in stems of 5 or 10 with an array of extra goodies to choose from.
These stunners arrive in bud form so your recipient enjoys them longer. As they bloom, they fill the space with the most divine fragrance that will ever grace your nose! Even Rudolph can attest to this.
Because these bundles are customisable, they're perfect to get as corporate gifts too! The colours and add-ons are unisex, so it's a great generic present for your co-workers.
Another popular use for our Christmas flower arrangements are table decorations for the big family Christmas lunch or dinner. Our Native wildflower arrangements are the perfect festive addition to your Aussie Christmas table setting.

History of Gift Giving during Christmas
Gift-giving around Christmas time dates way back. Many early cultures, such as the Romans and the Norse would celebrate the winter solstice. Part of these celebrations included festivals, music, feasts and gift giving. When Christianity first emerged, many of these existing seasonal customs were adopted into the religion, as a way to merge culture and religion.
Nowadays, the act of gift giving in religious terms, ties into the Christian story of the nativity. Three Wise Men travelled to see the infant Jesus and bestow upon him gifts of frankincense, gold, and myrrh. This gesture has since been adopted across the world's Christian cultures to celebrate the birth of Christ.
We've also got to mention Santa Clause. The 4th century Nikolaos of Myra was known for his fondness of giving people gifts. Nikolaos found so much joy in giving, that people remembered him for this. He was later appointed as a saint and eventually became known as Saint Nicholas.
Saint Nicholas and his generosity were recognised worldwide. Areas of Europe celebrate the feast day of Saint Nicholas in December. Saint Nicholas later evolved into who we now call 'Santa Claus,' the jolly, red suit wearing, white haired, pink-cheeked fellow. Riding his infamous reindeer sled, delivering gifts to all the children of the world in one evening.
A source of much wonderment and joy for children as they ponder whether they made the naughty or nice list that year.
Many of us can recall the awkward shopping centre Santa christmas photos we had taken as kids. The magic of leaving cookies and milk out for Santa on Christmas Eve. Or leaving carrots and water in the backyard for Rudolph and co to fuel up.
The sheer excitement of Christmas eve and being unable to fall asleep because of the anticipation. For some us, a little existential dread that a lump of coal may be waiting for us instead of Christmas gifts when we woke up.
Sinterklaas in Dutch, and Père Noël in France, Father Christmas or Santa in Australia, this jolly fella has become well-known and loved all over the world, and has become the figure of gift-giving during Christmas.
