It’s the most wonderful time of the year – but when you’ve got a long gift list, it can be a little overwhelming! From your favorite customers to your friends and neighbors, it can be difficult to determine what to give that will be appreciated and remembered. It is in that spirit that the team at Julias Florist has assembled our annual Holiday Gift Guide. From festive floral arrangements to unique gifts, we’ve got something for everyone – this Christmas, let the beauty of Christmas flowers warm their heart.
The poinsettia is the official flower of Christmas. The star-shaped leaves and vivid red color are iconic this time of year, and they adorn nearly every place in town. In fact, it is estimated that nearly 25% of all the potted plants sold in an entire year are represented by this classic flower – with over 34 million sold each Christmas from coast to coast.
Poinsettias are available as single plants in decorative pots, or can be arranged in baskets with other seasonal elements such as peace lilies,snowy chrysanthemums, or kalanchoe. Add bright ribbons and ornaments for a holiday gift that will bring the celebration to any decor.
When sending poinsettias, let your recipients know just how easy it is to keep the flowers thriving throughout the season! They should be kept in temperatures between 65-75 degrees, but out of reach of any drafts (either warm or cold). Water the soil when it feels dry to the touch, and drain any excess water. You’ll know if your poinsettia is unhappy if leaves begin to drop, as in the right conditions they are quite resilient.
For an impressive gift other than a poinsettia, browse the gift guide for custom seasonal Floral Designs, Holiday Centerpieces, and gifts to please even the toughest customer. We also have products specially created for Hanukkah (December 24- January 1).
From the most traditional Christmas offerings to contemporary arrangements, we’ll help you check everyone off your holiday list. Santa’s sleigh may be full, but we are happy to deliver all your gifts, whether across Wilmington or across the country. Call us today to arrange orders and delivery, and then sit back and relax. This Christmas is going to be beautiful!
