Valentine’s Day gift ideas for her

Everybody has their own ideas about Valentine’s Day. It is one of the most contested holidays of the year, with many people questioning why there is only one specific day dedicated to showing those closest to you some love. You might convince yourself that the day is not an important one and that you don’t need to receive something on the day to feel special, but there’s no denying that feeling you get when you do receive even the tiniest of favours.

NetFlorist believes that those closest to your heart deserve to be spoilt all year round but on Valentine’s Day specifically, we want to be a part of giving your loved one that special feeling. We want to remain on their desk for weeks after the red roses have wilted!

We have put hours into tailoring the perfect gift for every situation and we’re particularly good at putting together Valentine’s Day gifts. Make this Valentine’s Day a memorable one, by giving your loved one that special feeling in their heart and let us help you do exactly that.

We’ve compiled a list of our top five Valentine’s Day gift ideas for her, just to help get you into the spirit of giving on the day of lurrrrrrrv.

Bunch of Red Roses in Craft Paper

Spreading the Christmas cheer with NetFlorist

Christmas is just around the corner and although it is an exciting and overall festive time, it can be stressful when deciding on the perfect gift for your loved one. If you’re luck enough, s/he has provided you with a Christmas-list. Such a list is a light at the end of an otherwise dark tunnel, but not all of us are that lucky! Before you completely abort the mission, breathe in and as you breathe out, type the letters N-E-T-F-L-O-R-I-S-T into your search bar.

We’ve crawled across our site and selected the perfect gifts for him and her. We’ve also created specific products especially for Christmas, 2017. We’ve thrown it all together and placed it in the tab line as a temporary fixture. By ‘thrown’ we actually mean, we’ve methodically placed each product into the specific category that best describes it. Selecting a gift has never been easier! To make it even simpler we’ve decided to list our top picks for each of these five personality types for him and her, you know, just to make your Christmas gift quest as pain-free as possible. As if that wasn’t good enough, NetFlorist’s campaign for the festive season is our 4 for 3 special!

for Him:

Active Lifestyle

If your man is in the business of enhancing or maintaining physical fitness and overall health, this category was made specifically for him. He didn’t choose the gym-life, the gym-life chose him! (Or something along those lines). Active wear, gym bags, water bottles and more are all available for personalisation. NetFlorist’s speciality is humour and clever wording, keep that in mind when scrolling through our options.  Show that you respect his dedication to promptly wake up at 5 am every Sunday by purchasing this Golf Pro Bro Bucket, Desktop Putting Stationery Set, Golfer Doorstopper or the Golf Lovers Man Crate.

Christmas

Golf Lovers Man Crate

Family Man

He might be busy for most of the week grafting behind a desk, but he always manages to make time for his family. Sound familiar? If so, you have a classic example of a ‘Family Man’. Place your family photo in a Personalised Special Christmas Frame or a Personalised Christmas as Three Frame (if you have just welcomed a new born into the family), with the purpose of having the frame find its home on his desk at work. An afternoon spent outdoors with the family is a day to be treasured. Make more time this festive season for family outings and meals with the Red Lunch Cooler, a Personalised Family Roast Carving Board, or a Personalised Family Butchers Block.

One of the Boys

There’s nothing wrong with a man who likes to kick-it back with the guys, a beer in one hand and a braai tong in another. The image is complete with the rugby blaring in the background. An advocate for craft beer will appreciate a Personalised TRex Xmas Craft Beer or a Beer Safari Hamper. On the opposite spectrum, play it safe by ordering a Personalised Star Heineken Beer Caddy, 4 Pack Castle Lite in a Man Crate or a Jack Black Man Crate. And as for the other hand, order this Personalised King of Braai Tong Bag or Personalised Initials Braai Tong Bag. When placing your order, remember our 4 for 3 special this Christmas season!

Tech-Savvy

The world is slowly but surely separating itself from clichés and stereotype constructions and yet when you read the sub-heading ‘Tech Savvy’, you immediately imagined an adorable man with glasses plonked in front of his computer. Does he regularly go on-and-on about the latest tech or gadgets? If so, you’ve found the right page! Order the Batman Power Hamper, the Virtual Reality Headset or the Personalised Dynaport Powerbank to make his tech-savvy heart smile. The cherry on top would be the Skullcandy Uproar Spaced Out, just so that he can block out the rest of the world while he’s doing his thing!

Batman Power Hamper

The Foodie

You know what they say: the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach! Opt for the Biltong and Chocs Treat Box, the Trudeau Board with Assorted Biltong or the Hot Sauce and Biltong Hamper – giving the South African classic (biltong, of course) the platform it deserves. If he has a passion for the kitchen and all things in it, then a Star Wars Father Christmas Apron, Wusthof Silverpoint 7pc Knife Block, or the Personalised Victorinox and Apron Gift, is the best fit. Cooking really isn’t cooking unless you have a glass of wine in one hand, or a beer in his case. The 6 Pack Snacker seals the deal and makes it the perfect gift for him this Christmas!

for Her:

Nature Lover

By looking deep into nature, you are able to understand everything better. If the woman in your life demonstrates this, then the following category was made just for her! If she chooses to spend her spare time in the sunlight, her hands in the ground and her hair in the wind, then place your order for this Lily Bulbs in Red Bag or this Gladiolus Bulbs in Cerise Bag. Organise a fun and memorable picnic for the day and order a Wine and Lindt Picnic Basket, a Snackers Picnic Basket, or a Kalanchoe and Snacks Basket to accompany the outing.

Deeply Personal

There are many things NetFlorist is good at, designing gifts that are available for personalisation, is one of those things. The personalisation can come in the form of their name, a picture or a personal message. Order a Personalised Tan Jinger Claire Ladies Purse, a Personalised Love Served Apron or a Personalised Gold Name Cosmetic Bag – to add her name to the item. Scroll through our clothing designs for our personalised t-shirt options. Add your personal touch and we guarantee she’ll be happy with anything you decide on! Keep in mind our 4 for three Christmas campaign when selecting your gift and placing your order.

Ever Faithful

If the woman in your life insists on keeping the core meaning of Christmas at the forefront of your Christmas celebrations, have a look at our gifts of faith. This holiday is an extremely important Christian holiday for all believers. Help her keep the faith and show her that you truly respect her beliefs and accompanying practices. Provide her with an everyday reminder in the form of a Grace Hamper, Succeed Mug Hamper, or a Live by Faith Hamper.  For beneficial Christian literature, place your order for the Fresh Start Book and Pen, Jumpstart Your Priorities Book and Ferrero, or The Mind Connection Book and Cadbury Glow.

Gracious Host

Table-setting décor is the centre of the Gracious Host’s world! The foundation of a good table-setting is the fine china, so order this Carrol Boyes Moody Bloom Dinner Plate Set or Carrol Boyes Face Dinner Plate Set, to set the scene. And when the evening is just about to come to an end, let her walk out with a tray of Le Creuset Double Coffee Mug Set filled to the brim with coffee. The other half of the tray will be filled with Christmas Macaroons, Gold and Ginger Christmas Cookie Wreath, or Happy Holiday Letter Doughnuts. Closing the evening with style!

Chocoholic

Keep her Chocolate-Craving Monster at bay this Christmas season with a gift from our chocoholic collection. The foods we tend to crave are foods that enhance one’s mood in some way. Chocolate is one of those foods. Enhance her mood by ordering a Personalised Christmas Wreath Candy Jar, Golden Lindt Edible Christmas Tree, or a Christmas Chocolate Star Sleigh. Many of the items are up for personalisation, labelling the gift and specifying that it is hers and no one else’s. Have a look at our chocolate flavoured bakery options such as Golden Jingle Bell Dipped Strawberries, Christmas Marshmallow and Doughnut Bite Bouquet or our Christmas Cake Pops.

Celebrating Heritage Day with NetFlorist

heritage-day-gifts

Heritage Day, otherwise known as ‘Braai Day’, is one of South Africa’s most awesome public holidays. Not only because it’s an opportunity to get together with friends and family and have a good ol’ braai, but also because it is a day on which South Africans get to celebrate their culture and diversity, thereby unifying us as South Africans.

Just as with any other occasion, we have the perfect Heritage Day gifts here at NetFlorist, with which to spoil friends and family. Read on for some awesome Heritage Day gift ideas:

All about the Braai:

Due to the fact that National Heritage Day revolves around braai’ing, it’s only fitting that you spoil those around you with Braai gifts! We have you covered with some really great gift hampers which are all about the braai. Examples include this Le Creuset Mixed Braai Bucket which includes a Le Creuset basting brush, this Mini Braai Kit with Beers, and of course, our popular personalised Castle Six Packs. With gifts like these, there’s no excuse not to have a braai!

Something Sweet:

There’s nothing like some sweet surprises to get one into the spirit of Heritage Day! NetFlorist’s amazing online bakery knows exactly how to create Heritage Day themed bakery goods, so those sweet toothed individuals will be in seventh heaven when receiving bakery gifts this Braai Day. Examples include our Rugby Ball Dipped Strawberries, sunflower cupcakes, and decadent Green and Gold Stripey Doughnuts!

Floral Magic:

What would any occasion be without flowers or plants from NetFlorist? Spoil family and friends with something they can display with pride! We have potted plants, succulents, and of course the classic bouquets. You can never go wrong with enchanting floral gifts!

Make Heritage Day Special:

No matter what you decide to do this Heritage Day, NetFlorist is here to make it extra special. Whilst you are braai’ing with friends and family, remember to acknowledge the true meaning of this day and most importantly, remember how lucky you are to be a South African.

SA Marriage week – Focusing on the wellbeing of your marriage

GIFTS TO SPOIL YOur BETTER HALF THIS MARRIAGE WEEK

One of the most beautiful quotes about marriage is something we came across in the book turned movie, The Notebook, by Nicholas Sparks: “Marriage is [about] becoming a team. You’re going to spend the rest of your life learning about each other, and every now and then, things blow up. But the beauty of marriage is that if you picked the right person and you both love each other, you’ll always figure out a way to get through it”.

Since we’re at the start of SA Marriage week, which will be 1 – 7 September 2016, we decided to join in on the theme of “Do something, give something”. This is not just in terms of buying gifts for your significant other, this is also about the smaller things in life, such as making a sandwich and sharing it while sitting on the couch and watching a movie. With this in mind, we thought of a few ideas in which you can incorporate romantic gifts from NetFlorist to show your better half how much they mean to you.

Love and marriage

A happy marriage is about spending quality time together.

  1. Show your romantic side when you buy a dozen blood red roses and hide them from her all around the house. Start off with a little note at the door, leading her to the first rose and take her through the house until she finds the last rose which will be in your hand, as you smile like a silly loon!
  2. Escape the everyday life by packing a picnic basket filled with snacks and bubbly and take your significant other away to a beautiful place where you can enjoy the treats and each other’s company. In the end, that is what love and marriage is about – spending quality time together.
  3. The key to a successful marriage is doing things for one another. If you know that your significant other has had a rough day, fill up a bath with bath oil, a fizz ball and have a glass of wine handy for when she comes home. Little gestures like this can go a long way!
  4. Celebrating your six-month anniversary? Order a box of six doughnuts to celebrate the half dozen months together and make a toast to the next six months in a happy marriage.
  5. In married life, one sometimes has to stop amidst the hustle and bustle and make time for each other. Buy a couple’s moonlight spa voucher and enjoy the night getting a few treatments, dinner and just enjoying each other’s company.
  6. SA Marriage Week is about creating harmony in the home, and this includes sharing. Why not kick back and relax in the comfort of your love nest, and share a delcious dinner, complete with snacks and wine? We have a wide variety of snack and booze hampers for you to set the mood and give you a real chance to reflect.

All in all, we want you to make sure that you use this week to reflect on your marriage, focusing on its wellbeing and creating harmony in the home. A successful marriage takes work, which is why doing small things for each other really goes a long way. No matter what you decide to do during SA Marriage Week, NetFlorist is here to help you make it beneficial!

Happy marriages is about the small things in life

Spring Flowers to celebrate Spring Day

Spring flowers That will dazzle

Spring is the time of the year where the flower blossoms bloom, the sun shines warmer on the earth, and jeans, woolly shirts and boots are replaced with shorts, t-shirts and flip-flops. It is also the time to shake off the embrace of the winter months. It is a beautiful time of year where everything just seems to come to life. During this time, it almost feels like a necessity to add a bit of colour to your life, and a great way to do this is to buy spring flowers that please the senses.

As we will soon be swinging into Spring the 1st of September, many will be on the hunt for spring flowers to buy and send to loved ones. But, which flowers do you send that convey the message of springtime? We have selected a bunch of flowers we are fond of for Spring Day for you to choose from.

Spring Flowers - Roses, Tulips and gerberas

Beautiful flowers for Spring Day – Gerbera Daisies, Tulips and Roses.

Roses

Roses are popular among many, and as a flower with vast meanings and symbolism, that is no surprise. Roses are the perfect addition to any home or office to brighten up the space for spring. Regardless of the colour, roses are a beautiful gift with their subtle fragrance and beauty.
