Subscriptions are becoming more and more popular. You can find a subscription for almost anything now - wine, hot sauce, ties, socks, shampoo, makeup and more. Flower subscriptions have gained traction in the last year or so, with more and more customers asking about them.
Before they were popular with the average person, flower subscriptions were largely used by businesses. Think professional offices (lawyers & accountants), personal and medical services (hair salons, dentists, doctors offices & spas). Many of these businesses would opt for weekly, or bi-weekly delivery of their flowers. If your workplace opts to use Blooms by May for your subscription, we have a vase swap out program for businesses. This means we would pick up the old vase when we deliver a new arrangement, and you don't have to pay for a new vase every week. Because honestly, who is going to need all those vases?
Most subscriptions available for differently things are monthly. Flowers are a little different when it comes to subscriptions, as cut flowers only last for one week or so. While monthly subscriptions are definitely available, the most common choice would be a bi-weekly subscription. How long is the commitment? We have some customers that commit to just three months, and some that commit to as much as a year of flower deliveries.
How much control do I have over what is sent?
It is completely up to you! The choice of flower and/or colour is your choice. You can tell us "My girlfriend loves pink, so please ensure the bouquets are mostly pink." or "Please don't send any lilies, they have an allergy to the strong scent." or even "Only send combinations of chrysanthemums, roses, carnations and gerbera daisy in white, pinks, and yellows."
Where can subscriptions be delivered?
They can be sent to your loved ones home or their workplace. If you are sending to a workplace, make sure they have a vase to put them in. Alternatively, you can send an arrangement with a vase. Don't forget - you can always gift yourself a subscription.
