4 reasons why flowers are a great gift for Christmas

They won't create clutter

We’ve all been gifted something that we had absolutely no clue what to do with. And, to be fair, we’re probably all guilty of doing the same to someone else! It’s certainly sad when flowers wilt and we have to discard them, but there’s also a good side to this: it means you won’t be creating clutter for your recipient, which we’re certain they’ll thank you for.

They're a more personal gift

Flowers can also help you show your recipient that you know them well. If you know what their favourite colour is or even what their favourite flower is, you can gift them a Christmas flower bouquet in their favourite hue or featuring their favourite bloom. This will make it a much more personal and thoughtful gift that they’re guaranteed to love.

They're perfect for the hard-to-buy-for

If you know someone who’s practically impossible to buy for, flowers can be the perfect solution. Each bouquet is unique so, even if it seems like they have everything, we guarantee they’ll never have received the same flowers you send them.

You can get them delivered last minute

A Christmas flower delivery is also the perfect gifting option when you won’t be able to see this particular person come Christmas time. If you live overseas or in another part of the country, you can get flowers delivered to your loved one’s doorstep in time for Christmas. 

Even if you’ve missed the pre-Christmas delivery cut-off most online stores have, we’ve got you covered here at Floraly. We’ll be delivering blooms right up until Friday December 23rd, perfect for last-minute gifting.

The best Christmas flowers in Australia

When you send flowers to someone for Christmas, there are certain blooms that stand out above the rest because of their association with the festive season. Here are a few of our favourite Christmas flowers and plants that are available in Australia in December.

australian christmas bush

Christmas Bush

This Australian native comes into bloom, you guessed it, right around Christmas time. The flowers are a beautiful festive red colour, making them perfect for holiday gifting. 

You'll find Christmas Bush in our best-selling Holiday bouquet.

christmas poinsettia plant


One of the world’s most iconic and popular Christmas flowers is not actually a flower at all. Rather, the familiar red “petals” we know and love are actually the upper leaves of this festive plant.

red tiger lilies


Lovely lilies always make an impressive gift, no matter the occasion. But red and white lilies are particularly perfect for Christmas gifting. When they burst open, they’re a bit like fireworks—perfect for celebrating the holidays and the new year.

Just be careful gifting lilies to loved ones with pets, especially cats. Lilies are well known to be highly toxic to cats.

Red Christmas Roses

Red Roses

They’re not just for Valentine’s Day, you know! With their rich red hue and deep green foliage, red roses perfectly fit the traditional red and green colour palette of Christmas. Red roses are perfect for sending to those we love most at Christmas.

red hypericum berries christmas bouquet

Hypericum Berries

These delightful pinkish-red berries bear a strikingly similar resemblance to holly berries, which are traditionally associated with Christmas. Holly is difficult to work with when it comes to cut flower arranging, so hypericum makes a wonderful alternative and can often be found in Christmas bouquets.

baby's breath christmas treesBaby’s Breath

Dainty and delicate baby’s breath is highly sought after as wedding and baby shower flowers, but we love them just as much for Christmas. These little white blooms add a snowy touch to any festive bouquet.

There’s also a TikTok trend that involves using baby’s breath to decorate Christmas trees—which we are absolutely obsessed with.

pincushions christmas


Also known as pincushions, these red and yellow wildflowers make wonderful additions to Christmas bouquets. Pincushions are also among the best flowers for a Christmas wreath, creating a lovely focal point amongst foliage and other smaller blooms. 

Pincushions feature in our Holiday Bouquet and occasionally in our Seasonal Natives bunches at this time of year, both wonderful Christmas flower gifts.

Dried Flowers

If you’re searching for a longer-lasting flower gift this Christmas, consider dried flowers. Dried flowers are made to last long after the gifting occasion has passed. With proper care, they should last up to a year or more in your recipient’s home.
