The Block Bouquets makes customised brick flower bouquets for any occasion
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and there you are, a clueless boyfriend scrolling through endless suggestions of cliché chocolates and overpriced dinners, wondering how to escape the doghouse this year. Fear not, for The Block Bouquets has arrived on the scene with a game-changer that’s as sturdy as your commitment (assuming you remember anniversaries).
Enter the world of Lego brick flowers – yes, you read that right. These aren’t your garden-variety blooms; they’re handmade flower bouquets crafted from the Lego-like blocks of your childhood, designed to withstand anything, much like your love… or so we hope. We saw them our TikTok FYP and honestly couldn’t get over these eye-catching creations.
Now, before you scoff at the idea, let’s address the elephant in the room. Traditional flowers are beautiful, no doubt, but they’re also about as durable as your resolve to hit the gym on January 1st – fleeting, to say the least.
The Block Bouquets’ block bouquets, on the other hand, are the epitome of ‘forever flowers.’ They’re perfect for those who appreciate the permanence of Lego construction. In a world where everything is digital and fleeting, there’s something charmingly quirky about a tangible, buildable bouquet that says, “I love you” in a way that’s as unique as your Netflix password.
Their range is nothing short of impressive, catering to every taste with sunflowers that beam brighter than your gaming screen, Hello Kitty blooms for the pop culture aficionado, and lavenders and lilacs that won’t have you sneezing your way through a romantic evening. It’s a botanical bonanza minus the botanical part, and frankly, it’s genius.
Flower bouquets start at $39.90 for a single flower, and can go up to $99.90 for more intricate designs.
Building brick by brick
And let’s not overlook the humour in gifting a Lego bouquet. It’s a playful nod to the idea that while love isn’t always a bed of roses, at least your Lego flowers won’t wilt under pressure – unlike your ability to pick a restaurant without changing your mind six times. It’s a gift that says, “Our love is as enduring as plastic,” which, in today’s age, is saying quite a lot.
So, to all the bewildered boyfriends out there, this Valentine’s Day, why not buck the trend of perishable petals and opt for something that stands the test of time? With The Block Bouquets, you’re not just giving a gift; you’re offering a quirky, creative symbol of enduring affection. After all, in a relationship, it’s the thought that counts, and what better thought than one that involves building your future together, one block at a time?
In the end, remember, it’s the effort and thought that go into the gift that truly matter. And if you can bring a smile to her face with a bouquet that’s as unconventional and enduring as your love, then you, my friend, have won Valentine’s Day.
