Mother's Day

Leave your mom jarred this Mother’s Day!

Naturally, we will encourage you to place your Mother’s Day gift order for nationwide delivery via NetFlorist BUT, we’re also always interested in bringing you other gifting solutions. A common, inventive and money-saving gifting option is always DIY. Pinterest is packed with DIY projects that the recipient of your gift is bound to appreciate, but is ‘appreciate’ enough for you? Wouldn’t you rather love to leave your gift recipient absolutely jarred?

Mother’s Day is around the corner, which means that you have less time to find the perfect gift for the special occasion. It is incredibly difficult to find a gift that shows your mom the respect and appreciation she deserves; one gift simply doesn’t sum up the roles she has played throughout the course of your life. So, although it is is nearly impossible to find that one gift that does it all, we can always try our hardest.

Say it with Thank You gifts

‘Thank you’ is a simple English phrase that carries significant weight. The powerful words have a way of creeping into the receiver’s heart. Most of us were taught to use the words ‘Thank you’ from a young age. By actively using the phrase, you are encouraging a culture in which your appreciation is successfully expressed.

Change the attitude of not showing gratitude by sending your loved one a ‘Thank You’ gift. We should definitely say the words more often and this International Thank You Thursday emphasises just that. Browse through our extensive range of Thank You gifts, ready for delivery nationwide. Choose to honour the day and the concept, by sending a gift via NetFlorist. Here are our top suggestions for the day:

Beer today, gone tomorrow!

Today we are making all our readers aware of beer, its benefits, its facts and hidden treasures! Tomorrow is, after all, National Beer Day (7 April) so it seemed only fitting. Below are some of the interesting things we found out in our quest for knowledge. We even threw in some brew-tastic recipes to try out on the day.


Did you know:

  • Beer is the third most consumed drink in the world.
  • According to researchers, beer contains a mineral called silica. Silica is known to add volume to hair and make it thicker and is also commonly taken as a hair and nail supplement.
  • Zythology is mainly the study of beer. This also includes the study of the important roles of each beer ingredient used in the brewing process.
  • The first expert and professional brewers were all women.
  • Beer is surprisingly good at clearing up copper. Douse your pots or pan in a lager for five to 10 minutes and then use a cloth to remove the stains. Also, don’t bother buying expensive store-bought jewellery cleaners. Drop your rings and other trinkets into a dish of beer, then remove and polish to a beautiful sheen.
  • Beer helps soften meat. It also adds a distinctive taste!
  • If you’ve had a hard day at work, a cold beer isn’t just good for your spirits. Those tired, aching feet can be revived by a beer foot-bath.
  • According to Andrew Lopez, a professional gardener, the fermented sugars in beer stimulates plant growth and kill fungi. He recommends spraying either homebrew or Rolling Rock (both are chemical-free) on those annoying brown spots in your lawn. (Either that or just stop peeing there.) “The grass will absorb the sugar in the beer and draw energy from it, ” Lopez explains.
