Surprise a loved one with a customisable gift box filled with balloons, goodies and more in just four simple steps.
If you’re someone who’s always found gift giving stressful, you’ve come to the right place. As its name suggests, Better Than Flowers offers a fantastic alternative to the typical last-minute bouquet, one that’s completely customisable and hassle-free. With an easy-as-cake four-step process and same-day delivery, putting together the perfect present has never been easier.
Gone are the days when you had to squeeze a shopping trip into your busy schedule, only to burn hours searching for the right gift. And you can forget stressing over what to get your S/O for your fast-approaching anniversary or planning a surprise for your bestie’s bridal shower. Better Than Flowers has options for all occasions that are sure to bring a smile to your loved one’s face.
Here’s how it works. To create your personalised balloon gift box, simply head to the Better Than Flowers website and begin by picking a balloon to add to your box for an unexpected surprise. With everything from birthday and Mr. & Mrs. balloons to other emoji and kid-friendly options, you’ll have all celebrations covered.
Then it’s time to add more goodies into your box. We love that the growing gifts selection includes a range of products made by some of our favourite Hong Kong brands. We’re talking chocolate bars from Conspiracy Chocolate, scented candles from BeCandle, handmade vegan soaps from Soap Yummy, Hong Kong-themed prints from Tiny Island and more. Don’t worry, you’re allowed to add more than one!
Almost done! Pick out a fun greeting card and type up your message to be printed inside (your card will be attached to the balloon so it will fly out once the box is opened!). All that’s left to do now is to let Better Than Flowers know where to deliver your gift box, and the team will take care of the rest. The company delivers all week round across Hong Kong, and will deliver your surprise package on the same day if you put in your order before 10am.
Need a bit of inspiration to get you started? Scroll through for what we’d fill our gift boxes with for different occasions:
Birthday Gift Box
There are several birthday balloons to suit different party themes. We’d go with the Flamingo balloon, and for gifts, why not throw in a Tiny Island towel for the beach and a Natural Vegan Lip Balm by Soap Yummy to match the summery vibe? We love a good food pun, so of course we have to include the “Let’s Have Some Cheung Fun” greeting card by 852prints.
Stuck on what to get for the special man in your life? There are plenty of great gifts available, like Flagrant Hot Sauce, a Shaving Kit by Monsieur Barbier, dim sum socks from Playful or snacks from Nomsoftheday.
Bridal Shower/Wedding Gift Box
So your bestie is ready to tie the knot. Show your support with a Team Bride balloon and treat her to a bottle of Domaine de Terra Vecchia Une Ile Rose, Rosy Lavender Face & Body Soap and a cheeky adult puzzle. Get the bride tribe to write a line each in a “Here’s a Toast to You” card for a personal touch.
And for the big day, we love the gold and white Mr. & Mrs balloons and think it would be nice to add a Bottle of Louis Roederer Champagne and a set of artisan chocolate bars by Conspiracy Chocolate. Write a heartfelt message to the happy couple on a “I Hope Your Day is Ferry Special” greeting card.
Gift Box For Kids
If you don’t have any yourself, it can be a challenge to shop for kids. Luckily, Better Than Flowers has a whole selection of balloons young ones will love, and fun gifts too. You can’t go wrong with the Organic Gluten-Free Teddy Bear Cookies by FoodCraft, a wildlife floor puzzle and bubble gun to enjoy at the party.
Welcome/Leaving Gift Box
Whether you know someone who’s flying into the city or leaving for good, a gift box filled with Hong Kong-themed gifts would make a great surprise. Start off strong with a smiling emoji balloon and add in some Egg Tart Socks from Playful, a Hong Kong Tramway Illustration by Graphik’ Re!collection, a bottle of Gin by local distillery Two Moons, along with Hong Kong-themed coasters by Tiny Island and the drinking game “Ride the Minibus” by Wild Boar Games.
