There are so many things to love about the holiday season: the exceptionally chipper music, the familiar hearty food, the delicious cocktail and the cooler weather. However, one of the not so fun things about the holidays is coming up with unique gifts for that special someone/someones in your life. You can ask for ideas or lists but they never seem to tell you exactly what to buy! Thankfully for you, we have done all of the hard work this year. We have complied a wish list of our TOP 5 FAVORITE FLORAL DESIGN GIFTS.

1. A great pair of floral snips.

We especially love these clippers by Floret Flower Farm. They are simple and straight to the point while being sturdy. You can snag them here.

 

2. A fashionable yet functional apron. 

This canvas and leather apron by Emily Thompson Flowers is something we have been eyeing for a while. The tool pouch and straps are both removable AND the canvas apron is washable. (That's major!) You can get it here for $175.

 

3. A basic Swiss Army Knife.

You never know when you may need a certain tool, so why not buy the tool that has them all! This is a great gift for people who don't like to carry a ton of weight and who may need something in a pinch. Purchase one from Williams-Sonoma here for about $40.

 

4. Some pretty floral art.

While we get the chance to work with flowers almost every day, its nice to have something beautiful to look at in your office while you aren't getting your hands dirty. You can even commission someone to create something personal for your favorite flower designer, like the one we had done for Maria. You can contact Motley Illustrates on their site & get the custom party started.

 

5. A ticket to an educational workshop.

This may be the most expensive gift on their list but it is so incredibly beneficial to your designer's career. Florists are always craving and needing further education, so why not surprise them with a trip to Seattle to work with Sinclair & Moore?! Registration for their 2017 workshops are open now here.
