Gift Ideas for the Flower Fan


We are no strangers when it comes to panic buying Christmas presents, which is why we always appreciate a gentle nudge in the right direction. At McQueens, we happily immerse ourselves in all things floral, both in and out of work -– and the glorious things they inspire from interiors to edible treats. With this in mind, we’ve compiled some gift ideas for the flower fanatic.

Miller Harris – Forage Collection

Scent is as much of a pleasure for florists and the green-fingered as flowers themselves. The two harmonise perfectly to create a fully immersive floral experience – just imagine the dual delights of walking through a rose garden and you’ll know exactly what we mean! Miller Harris, the iconic contemporary London perfumers, have a reputation for bottling the most gorgeous scents nature has to offer. We have been particularly captivated by their unique Forage range, inspired by London’s many green spaces, from the glorious parks to hidden corners.

Desmond & Dempsey Pyjamas

Another favourite label in McQueens little black book is Desmond & Dempsey. After a long winter’s day, there’s nothing quite like a cosy evening curled up on the sofa in deluxe pyjamas that feel so gorgeous you won’t want to take then off! Desmond & Dempsey tick all the boxes when it comes to an array of beautiful prints and quality. Naturally, we’ve set our hearts on the fresh Eva design, but then again, we’re also quite partial to the tigers

Seedlip

Seedlip have been high on our radar this year, and come into their own at the Christmas season. This exciting young company has created the world’s first distilled non-alcoholic spirit. We adore their approach to sourcing botanical ingredients to create complex and grown-up soft drinks that provide adults with a real alternative to alcohol. There are three blends available – all quite delicious – so the only real struggle is deciding between the gorgeous bottles (and their super cool artwork).

Rococo Rose Organic Dark Chocolate Bar

No Christmas gift list would be complete without a cocoa-based treat, and sometimes a tin of Quality Street just doesn’t fit the bill. For those of you who aspire to a box of something achingly sophisticated, we couldn’t recommend a more delicious or apt confection than the Rococo Rose Organic Dark Chocolate bar. Encased in the most decorative of wrapping, the essential rose oil adds a delicate and subtle note that will transport you to a very special place. We’ll take two!

The packaging is almost as delicious as the chocolate

McQueens Flower School

Allow us to be a little biased. The ultimate present for budding florists has to be a class within our very own flower school. Our wide curriculum of courses span the full gamut; from the fabulous and fun one-day workshops through to the four-week vocational course for those looking to take their interest to the next level. Our expert teaching team has a wealth of experience across creative floral design, and each member will act as a conduit to the unique philosophy that has made McQueens the first name in floral design. It’s a gift that could be the start of something very big…
