With Christmas just a few months away, we're all thinking about what presents to buy, the food we'll be eating and the possibility of doing it all over Zoom. New normal, right?

If you struggle with what to get certain people each Christmas or may not be seeing them in the flesh, we're here with a suggestion for you: flowers. Plus, you're likely to have birthdays, anniversaries and other events all year round that require you to send something special - you can always rely on some last minute flowers.

Everyone loves flowers, don't they? Need a thank you prezzie? Flowers. Does your mum keep telling you she "doesn't want anything"? Flowers. Literally no idea what to get Gran? You guessed it, flowers. It's so simple. Why didn't we think of this before?

Luckily for us, a lot of the top flower delivery brands in the UK deliver right up until Christmas Eve, so even if you're completely stacked at work and usually a real last minute Sally, you're covered.
