The holiday season is well underway, but do you have all of your shopping done yet? Remember, the number of shopping days left is quickly diminishing – Christmas is only two weeks away!
Holiday shopping can be delightful when you have lots of time and you’re full of holiday cheer. But after weeks of long lines and heavy traffic, it’s hard not to turn into Ebenezer Scrooge or the Grinch! Fortunately, your friends at Bosland’s Flower Shop are here to help you cross everyone off your list and save your yuletide joy.
Flowers make the perfect gift no matter the occasion, especially during the holidays when people decorate their homes and invite friends and family over to share the spirit of the season. Whether you’re decorating your own space or looking for the right gift to give to someone else, here are some ideas that you’re sure to love:
When people think of Christmas decorations, they think of poinsettias. The plants are so popular, in fact, that they accounted for nearly one quarter (23 percent) of all flowering potted plants sold last year, according to a recent USDA Floriculture Statistics report.
The poinsettia is native to Mexico, but it is commercially grown in every state in the United States. It is a common misconception that poinsettias are toxic to humans and animals. But the reality is, these beautiful holiday plants are normally safe as long as they are not ingested in large quantities, and their extremely bitter taste usually prevents more than a nibble from a curious child or pet.
Fresh flowers can set the tone for the whole season. They are very popular during the holidays, especially in brightly-colored centerpieces used to decorate the table. Red and white flowers are obvious choices for many holiday designs, but special touches such as holly, berries, pine cones and evergreen sprigs add seasonal style and flair to traditional bouquets.
Whether you’re looking for a mix of elegant and classic or bold and beautiful, the artesian designers at Bosland’s will be happy to create the perfect piece to help you make this holiday season extra special.
Pure Delight Candles
In addition to flowers and plants, candles are also popular gifts during the holiday season. They come in a wide variety of colors and scents, and they can fill your home with luxurious ambiance and nostalgia-inducing aromas.
When it comes to candles, the options available are nearly endless. While most people choose candles based on fragrance, size, and color, not all candles are created equal.

DID YOU KNOW?
Paraffin wax used for traditional candles is derived from petroleum, which when burned gives off harmful toxic fumes, which may cause carcinogens to be released into the air you are breathing? Color additives in candles are artificially chemical based and contribute to toxic air quality when burned.
