Heard of 'letterbox flowers'? No, it's not stems stuck through the letterbox, petals falling all over the place – it's actually pretty awesome.

Not only that, but they then get to experience the fun of arranging the flowers themselves in a vase! Hand-tied bouquets are also available too, with optional extras like Prestat chocolates and sweet-smelling candles.
