Snow! It’s here! Anoka is covered right now and, suddenly, we’re feeling a tad bit Christmas-like around the flower shop. We had such a gorgeous Fall this year–complaining about the snow now, seems silly. We’re choosing to just stay thankful for all we were gifted with this past Autumn, instead. 🙂 Here, at the shop, we’re swimming in Thanksgiving centerpiece orders; however, our minds are focusing on Small Business Saturday also. (November 26th.) Next Wednesday (the 23rd) we will be closing at 3pm, Thanksgiving, we will, of course be closed and Friday we’ll be open regular hours. Anyway, we wanted to take this blog to show off some of our favorite, gift-related, finds around the shop in case you’re in the area over the next few weeks.
So, without further ado, here are our top-ten, favorite Main Floral gift ideas… (In NO particular order.)
Between us, and Sweet River Candy Company next door–we have the best boxes of chocolates, fun treats, and nostalgic finds. You could put together a little gift basket, or, simply, surprise someone with a favorite candy!
Can’t decide what to get someone? Grab a gift card. Main Floral gift cards can be used on anything in the shop–or, even, flower delivery.
Send, or slip, a cute card in the mail, or onto a desk for someone you want to wish a Merry Christmas to–bonus points if they weren’t expecting it. 🙂 Add a gift card in it and it’s a full gift.
We have a shimmery selection of handmade jewelry in at all times. We have some that is made by a local chainmail artist, and others that are hand-created by designers in Guatemala.
All the candles we have in here are unique, locally made and wonderful smelling.
Mittens (and maybe even hot cocoa).
Mittens, locally made, from recycled sweaters are perfect for men, or women. Pair a pair with some hot cocoa for the perfect winter gift.
We have so many different kinds available–whether you would like something that requires a lot of light, prefers dryer conditions, needs shade, etc., we probably have it. If you don’t trust yourself to take care of it until Christmas–just let us know. We can order something, specific, for you closer to the holidays.
Body and Bath Stuff.
Again, like with our candles–it’s all locally made, and it all smells incredible.
This one is a no-brainer for us! You can either come in and order, or order online–specify you’d like it delivered on Christmas Eve (or whenever), and you’re all set. We’ll do the rest!
Succulent, or Dish Garden.
Succulents are so hot right now–for any younger person on your list, or any older person who has it all (and probably lived through the last time they were this trendy), a succulent, or dish, garden is perfect. (A dish garden has regular, green, plants–no succulents.) Again, these can be ordered now–and delivered, or picked up, much closer to Christmas.
