Celebrate International Cat Day

International Cat Day comes on the 8th of August 2019 and aims to honour the most ‘a-meow-zing’ creatures in the animal kingdom. And, no, I’m not covering this because of all the cat puns! Benny loves his puns, but he loves his ‘pur-fect’ furry friends most of all. International Cat Day is a special day to recognise and celebrate of one of the humanity’s oldest and most beloved pets. At NetFlorist, cats are arguably the best pet to have (or is that just my own bias?) Either way, explore our range of pet gifts from NetFlorist and ensure that this International Cat Day is a ‘pur-fect’ day to show your love towards your cat.

 

What Is The History of International Cat Day?

International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) created International Cat Day in 2002 to celebrate the most popular pet on the planet. International Cat Day is a day to raise awareness for our feline friends and learn about ways to help and protect them. NetFlorist likes to be on the forefront of world conservation, so don’t let the cat puns fool you, we take this day as serious as we do our biggest occasions! Cats have been domesticated for nearly 4,000 years, but today, they are valued for their fellowship and loving behaviour.

Though not well known, the collective nouns used for cats and kittens are a clowder of cats or a kindle of kittens. Our domestic cats are called as little cats. But International Cat Day doesn’t just refer to our household furry friends, though. These beautiful animals usually vary from large cats such as lions and tigers which are strong and predatorial by nature, to cheetahs and panthers which are fast and cunning. Whichever cat is your favourite, whether big or small, dangerous or adorable, NetFlorist wants to help you celebrate International Cat Day the best way possible!

Today, cats are the most popular pet animal in all countries, at nearly 500 million domestic cats in the world. Being around cats has been shown to improve one’s mental health and to relieve stress, anxiety, and depression. With NetFlorist, you can make sure that International Cat Day is an annual celebration of one of the world’s favourite animal companions.

Nelson Mandela Day – Give With All Your Heart

At NetFlorist, only through giving are we able to get more than we receive. Our way of life has always been dependent on a person’s ability to give and to love. Whether it’s through the gifts that we deliver or the smiles that we create, South Africa’s largest sameday gift delivery service has always strived to change the world of someone, no matter the occasion! Now, Benny knows exactly what you’re thinking, “Why is he referring to himself in the third person?” and, “Who in heaven’s name is Benny?

But more importantly, you’re probably thinking, “What’s the best way to honour Nelson Mandela this Mandela Day?” Charity begins at home, and before you could change the world, it is necessary to change the world of one person near you! Whether it’s your neighbour, your friend, a traffic stop officer, a street vendor, or an active job seeker on the side of the road, there are a number of ways to make someone’s day as special as possible.

Give “Just Because…”

Celebrate the life of the man who strived for equality, and gave everything he had when it seemed like he had nothing else to give. Just as love comes in many forms, so does the act of giving. Explore our exceptional variety of gifts from the Bakery, from our plants range, our flowers range, our clothing range, or even our bath and body range. Sometimes, giving nothing more than your time is enough to remind someone special that they matter, just as Nelson Mandela sought to remind us in our struggle.

Is your friend or colleague going through a difficult time? Are they struggling to make ends meet? Do they smile less than they used to? Give them your time and understanding, and even if you have no money for a gift, you have all the time in the world to lend an ear, and a shoulder to cry on. 67 minutes of your time can go a long way to changing someone’s life for the better, even just for a little.

Give to A Stranger

The dreams of Madiba are fully realised when we give people a piece of our heart each day; even if it’s just a stranger! From the security guard whose very presence gives you peace of mind when you enter your home, work, or place of business, to the garbage man who ensures that the place you call your home is kept clean, always. Giving is a natural response of love, and sometimes, love from a stranger can mean more than you’ll ever know!

Volunteering at your nearest orphanage, animal sanctuary, or humanitarian organisation can make the perfect gift idea to fill someone’s world with unsurpassed love and affection. This is the most valuable way to give your time to someone in need. Volunteering may have positive benefits for you, as a person, but more importantly, it will leave an impact on the person or community that you’re serving.

Give A Donation

This Mandela Day, how about donating a gift to a charity organisation of your choice? A donation may come in many forms, including services, experiences, or even goods such as clothing, toys, such as teddy bears, or food. In more extreme cases, a donation may satisfy medical needs such as blood or organs for transplant. Charitable donations of goods or services are also called gifts in kind.

You can either buy clothes online to donate to a person or group in need or you can donate the clothes you already have. You can also go on over to the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund and support the children of Madiba with either your childhood clothes that no longer fit, or alternatively, if you have children, you can donate old clothes that they’ve outgrown. This Mandela Day, you’re spoilt for choice in the many ways that you can honour “uTata Mandela!”

Be the change that you want to see in the world this Mandela Day. Since Mandela Day takes place during the cold winter season, you can warm more than just their heart by donating old jerseys, hoodies, long-sleeve T-shirts as well as soft blankets. You can donate old winter warmers or buy online from NetFlorist for someone near and dear to you! Delight them with an unsurpassed coffee and tea drinking experience with our delicious winter warmer delights.

In conclusion

On the 18th of July 2019, let a stranger or even a loved one believe in the will of Madiba. From giving money to giving your time, there are many ways to touch their heart. Give back and ensure that you touch lives, change minds and foster an understanding that will echo through time. This Mandela Day, no matter what you choose to do to honour this wonderful man, give just as he did; for only 67 minutes, give with all of your heart!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Christmas

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

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.

Christmas

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!

Christmas

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.

St Patrick’s Day at NetFlorist

Our Craft Beer for St Patrick's Day

Our Craft Beer for St Patrick’s Day

St Patrick’s Day is celebrated with parades, wearing green, music and songs, Irish food and drinks (green Guinness, anyone?). This year, celebrate St Paddy’s Day with NetFlorist’s list of fun things to do to celebrate St Paddy’s Day.

What to do for St Patrick’s day?

First and probably the most obvious, dress up in your favourite green outfit. Hey, you can even dress up as a magical leprechaun if you want. Get into the spirit of St Paddy’s Day by spraying your hair green, wearing your favourite t-shirt that says: “Kiss me, I’m Irish” and hang a four-leaved clover around your neck. Or whatever you find appropriate and celebratory.

Do something really, really Irish like fly to Ireland and learn Irish dances. Or, maybe not, and just YouTube some “How to Irish Dance” videos, crank up the Irish music and dance your little leprechaun butt off. Invite a few friends over and have a full on Irish party.

Have a St. Patrick’s Day themed party at home. Order some festive flowers from NetFlorist to decorate your house, prepare some green delicious delights and order Craft Beer from us as well. Tell everyone to wear green and chill out with a few beers and Irish music to add a little extra Irishness to the festivities.

Another fun thing you can do is to buy chocolate coins and a few pots and leave them everywhere around your home or office and leave little pots of gold for anyone to find. You can be a little charitable and leave it around your neighbourhood to brighten someone else’s St Patrick’s Day.

And last, but not least, the real reason you landed on this site – go pub crawling! Most bars and pubs get really into the St Patrick’s Day spirit and will have Irish themed everything. Ever had a green Guinness? Now is your chance to get in on the action and order yourself some nice beer. Visit Irish bars in your neighbourhood with friends for an awesome St Patrick’s Day celebration this 17th of March.

Go for the green and gold and buy St Patrick’s Day beer and gifts online. With a range of flowers and gifts for St Patrick’s Day, you won’t believe that you’ve just landed your Irish butt in our pot of gold.
