4. It's TEA TIME!
This charming set of three unique flavours from VAHDAM TEAS is a creative way to promote a host of health benefits. Plus, the whole packaging makes it an exquisite gift.

(bonus!) OUR FAVE: Good Vibes + Virtual Hug Flower Box (no maintenance on this one!)
Speaking of lavenders, why not give something for their desk / work space / area? Send reminders of your love and support by gifting our Desk Petite Flower Box. I might be biased on this one (of course!), but it's such a small but impactful token.
Imagine you're overwhelmed with a day's work and you see this message on your desk, reminding you on how great you are and that someone cares for you deeply. You grab it, take a sniff of the lavender and you close your eyes and just soak in that scent, you open your eyes and you get back to your day head on.
Uplifting and gorgeous flower box you can personalize! Preserved rose and lavender stems that lasts up to a year! No more tacky, high maintenance and overrated flowers! We’re keeping it classy and modern!
**PRO TIP: Add a meaningful message. Remind your recipient how amazing and loved they are! Sometimes, all we need is to be reminded on how special we are.
