Last week I was treated to an afternoon in a swanky London hotel to see Moonpig’s latest range – flowers and gifts for Mother’s Day. I wasn’t sure what I was expecting to see as my only experience of Moonpig in the past have been their famous television advertisements and ordering their humorous, personalised cards on occasion.
As soon as I walked into the canopied area where a huuuuge table laden with beautiful bouquets and gift baskets and hampers were displayed, I knew immediately that this wasn’t what I had in mind – and I mean that in a good way.
Before attending the event I wasn’t convinced that I would use Moonpig to send flowers myself, but after seeing them in the flesh with the brilliant addition of using personalised Moonpig cards to list exactly which flowers are included in each arrangement – I need no more convincing.
It was really refreshing to hear that Moonpig use UK farmers wherever possible with their flowers and they’ve gone to so much effort in sourcing their selections. For instance, the tulips are grown in the UK – I know right? – and the sunflowers are Fair Trade. Not only were the flowers a hit with me, but the hampers and gift collections were brilliant too. The Breakfast in Bed hamper was a genius idea – including all the things you’d expect – champagne, award winning jams and marmalades, proper coffee etc – with the addition of a mini dustpan and brush – to sweep up the crumbs in bed! Inspired. If you don’t want to go all out with a hamper, there’s a fab range of gifts, including champagne, truffles and olde sweet shop style treats and cakes.
To the down and dirty part; would I used Moonpig to send my own mum a bunch of flowers? Absolutely! Now I’ve seen them in the flesh and have heard first hand how much effort has gone into the range, I certainly wouldn’t hesitate. All flowers and gifts are affordably priced, and after bringing home a gorgeous bouquet myself, a week later they’re still going strong and look fabulous.
And would I be pleased to receive them on Mother’s Day? Yes! If the other half is reading this – sunflowers, please darling.
