Give a gift that won't wilt.

There’s no denying the convenience of delivery has truly made its mark in the last couple of years, and when time, space and restrictions keep us from visiting our loved ones, we couldn’t be more grateful for these services.

Whether your loved one is a donut devotee, an indoor plant fanatic, or they simply need a pick-me-up at the end of a long day, there’s a food subscription or plant delivery service out there for everyone – and let’s face it, flowers don’t always cut it.

So the next time you’re thinking about sending flowers, consider one of these thoughtful and fun alternatives. From beautifully curated gift packs to a casket of chocolates and gin that won’t last the day, here are our favourites.
