With Christmas only weeks away, knowing what to buy for everyone can be tricky but with our helpful guide to this season's top picks, you’ll find something for everyone in The Flower Lounge’s Festive Gift Guide. Do you have an impossible friend or loved one to buy for?

If you need a gift with that wow factor or maybe something simple but stunning for a teacher or colleague, you’ll be spoilt for choice with our festive line-up of unforgettable Christmas gifts.

To give you a helping hand, our unbelievably talented (and award winning), team at The Flower Lounge, have put together our favourite in-store beauties that are guaranteed to make your nearest and dearest feel special this Christmas and brighten up any festive interior.

So here it is. The Flower Lounge’s ‘Festive Picks’ (and a sneaky peak at our own Christmas wish list.)


Q; What’s on your wish list?

A: A holiday to Mexico, I’d love to see the country and adore Mexican food (and Tequila!)

Q: What’s your festive pick?

A: I love the gorgeous Manchester Bee Bauble. Adorned with the iconic Manchester Bee emblem, it’s a wonderful addition to any proud Mancunians’ tree.  Saying that I love funky, unique and unusual styles so adore all the baubles in store. Who wouldn’t!  Baubles make beautiful exquisite gifts to hang on the tree this year, next year and every year. Christmas can be expensive, so people often forego buying beautiful decorations like these for themselves. I think as a gift they’d be really treasured. I know I’d love one on my tree this Christmas.


Q; What’s on your wish list?

A: Anyone who knows me, knows I’m GHD obsessed… so it’ll be no surprise to hear I’m hoping to find a GHD hairdryer in my stocking this Christmas!

Q: What’s your festive pick?

A: I love the macramé in store at the moment, supplied by local artist Patch-A-Mama. This bohemian textile art of knotting and hitching is back in a big way. Its super trendy and the macramé plant hangers look divine with one of our plants suspended.  They’re chic, beautiful and amazingly intricate. A super stylish gift for Christmas.


Q: What’s on your Christmas list?

A: In 2020 I’ll be seeking sun so I’ve asked Santa for a new lightweight travel case for my adventures!

Q: What’s your festive pick?

A: A gift voucher for one of The Flower Lounge’s up-coming workshops. Workshop vouchers are perfect if you know someone who loves all things floral. It gives them the opportunity to learn how to arrange flowers or create unique pieces for special occasions. Workshops are held in within our Didsbury shop, and each workshop is catered for all skill levels – all you need is enthusiasm and a willingness to give it a go!

Did I mention the workshop also includes refreshments with delicious cakes and a glass of fizz?


Q: What’s on your Christmas list?

A: I’d love anything from Estee Lauder

Q: What’s your festive pick?

A: I love the star wreaths we have in store. They’re real statement pieces that look chic and make a stylish festive addition to any home. If you or someone you know is partial to a modern design this geometric star wreath is the perfect gift. Even better, they won’t have to take it down at Christmas – its funky, modern and elegant design means it can add that touch of glamour all year round!


Q: What’s on your Christmas List

A: On Christmas morning, under my tree, I’d like to find tickets to see Liam Gallagher at Heaton Park. Anything is possible with Christmas magic right?

Q: What’s your festive pick?

A: As a self-confessed dog lover its no surprise I’d recommend the charming Dog Walkers Revival Kit from Sweet William. Strictly for humans of course, these must-have luxuries can help revive you after the daily dog walk. Think post-Christmas lunch stroll pampering. Another favourite of mine is the Dog Father mug. Simply perfect for any head of the mutt-mafia.


Q: What’s on your Christmas List?

A: I’d like to find US Dollars under the tree this Christmas just in time for my New Year’s trip to the Big Apple!

Q: What’s your festive pick?

A: For fresh flower fans, our 6-month or 12-month flower subscription is the ideal gift choice this Christmas. A fresh bunch of flowers never goes unappreciated, so what could be better than getting them in regular supply? Our flowers are guaranteed to bring a smile to anyone’s face. They’re the perfect gift for the friend, partner or family member who has ‘everything’.

So, come and visit us at The Flower Lounge this Christmas.
