Why a Flower Subscription is the gift that keeps on giving

Have you always wanted your house to be full of fresh flowers at all times? Brighten up your kitchen bench, put some life into your living room, or make a statement in your hallway with stunning flowers? We’re with you. 

When Miley Cyrus released her record-breaking hit ‘I can buy myself flowers’ it really resonated with all of us. It was an anthem about loving yourself, creating your own boundaries and running your own race. That one line about buying yourself flowers, really struck a chord with all of us. Excuse the pun. 

Miley’s song was about creating our own happiness. The things that spark joy. And something that really makes us smile is having fresh flowers in our home or office. It’s the way those flowers make us feel. It’s the unknown of what the flowers will be like each week or month, what’s in season and how they will smell. With a LVLY flower subscription, you can enjoy a regular delivery of fresh flowers without having to lift a finger. 

There are manybenefits to flower subscriptions, including:

  • Variety: With a flower subscription, you can enjoy a variety of different flowers throughout the year. You can choose a subscription that delivers locally sourced flowers that are in season, or you can opt for hearty Aussie natives or a florist’s pick bunch chosen by our talented team.
