I don’t like to admit it, but I’m a bit of a sap sometimes (shhh don’t tell anyone). And I think some of my friends and family have figured me out, because they know how to pull at these strings quite well now. For example, I recently had a ridiculous life moment where I truly felt like I was in my 35th year of life. I dropped something on my bathroom floor while I was getting ready in the morning, bent over to pick it up and pulled my back out. Needless to say, I didn’t make it off of my couch all day until I worked on getting the pain to subside.
I did get up only a few times and one of them was to answer the door for a delivery. When I opened the box, I saw a beautiful Spring bouquet and some chocolates. The card read, “we hope you feel better soon” and that I was being sent a whole boatload of love from Daniel and the Tonic Blooms
team. Feeling a bit old and helpless, I was already in a messy mental state. So I cried, but good tears – not the same tears cried when pulling my back our doing every day human things. It was the pick-me-up I needed in order to get through my day and forget about how apparently I can’t even bend over anymore without hurting myself.
Flowers are like sentimental currency. You can communicate emotions or thoughts in the most beautiful organic way, with just one gesture. And I love that I know what flowers mean the most to the people in my life. Daniel loves calla lilies, my mother loves peonies, one of my grandmothers loved pansies, and the other loved daisies. My personal favourite is sunflowers. But every flower has a special meaning, are a symbol and can be arranged in such a way that you can’t help but feel so darn loved when receiving them.
For those of you who celebrate Easter, or if you just want an excuse to send someone some flowers this long weekend, Tonic Blooms has got you covered. They’ve put together some limited-edition bouquets at a fantastic price with same-day delivery within the GTA. This includes within a 2-hour window, even! And if you’ve ever had one of those times in your life where you wanted to get flowers to someone and fast, then whatever you ordered was awful, expensive and disappointing – well, this won’t be one of those times. Their business model ensures that customers are delighted from start to finish. I can personally vouch for this experience, time and time again. The best part is that there are no hidden fees because delivery is always included in the price! I love companies who just get it.
