1-800-Flowers.com Vase Expressions {Review & Giveaway}

1-800-Flowers.com logo

While there are a lot of great holidays throughout the year, there is a particular one that is very, very important coming up soon. The one that celebrates the most important woman in all of our lives: Mom.

Mother's Day falls on the second Sunday in May, meaning this May 13th moms should be treated a little more special than the other 365 days in 2012 (although really, it's in my opinion that moms should be on a pedestal every single day... but I guess I might be just slightly biased).

So, as well as treating Mom with a little extra kindness, love and respect, what is the most common way to show her that you care? With a great gift, of course! While the classics — cards, flowers, jewelry and more — never go out of style, it is pretty much a guaranteed hit if you can find something that will show Mom your appreciation for her while at the same time warming her heart.

This year, I have already discovered just the thing: Vase Expressions from 1-800-Flowers.com.

Vase Expressions

When it comes to finding a personalized, beautiful and memorable Mother's Day gift, 1-800-Flowers.com has long been an expert. While I was already familiar with their ability to provide the finest selection of beautiful flowers and gifts perfect for every occasion, the introduction of their new Vase Expressions caught my eye immediately.

Created with a few clicks of the mouse, Vase Expressions are made by simply choosing your favorite image from your photo library, uploading it along with an optional message and picking the gorgeous floral arrangement (red roses, multicolored roses or tulips) to accompany it. It couldn't be much easier than that... and the results? Simply stunning.

Within minutes of seeing the purple box from 1-800-Flowers.com waiting at my door, I had it in and torn open.

After admiring how well-packed and safe the flowers as well as the vase were, I had them out, set up and displayed. 

All while sporting a huge smile on my face.

1-800-flowers Vase Expressions review

Is there any way to make a mom happier than with an adorable image of her children?

The combination of one of my favorite photos of Big Sister E and Little Sister B with my favorite flower, tulips, has caused me to stop and stare at this Vase Expressions display each day since its arrival to love it a little more. Although I knew that this unique gift idea would be a one-of-a-kind keepsake, I just had no idea that it would turn out so great.

The simple, straight vase provides the clean lines and modern look that is a great background to the photo itself, which is printed with waterproof technology and lined inside the glass.

The colors in the photo are just as bright and vivid as the original and I adore seeing these two smiling faces looking out alongside the beautiful and cheery tulips.

Mother's Day gift

Even better, as the days have passed, the multicolored tulips have bloomed more and more, resulting in an overall beautiful presentation. What more could I ask for?

Mother's Day flowers

While the Vase Expressions collection is absolutely perfect for Mother's Day, these custom vases would also be a big hit for any number of other occasions — birthdays, weddings, new babies, graduation... the options are limitless as long as you have a photo (or logo) and a desire to make someone's day!

Retailing between $39.99 and $49.99 (depending on which flowers you select), a Vase Expressions personalized gift is a unique, creative, beautiful way to show your recipient you care with something meaningful that they will love. Even though the flowers will eventually wilt away, the vase itself will last long after the holiday has passed and continue to provide the same feeling of joy.

Thanks to the generosity of 1-800-Flowers.com, one person will be able to provide that happiness for their mom (or themselves!) this Mother's Day, because...

One lucky person will win a $50 gift card to 1-800-Flowers.com so that they can order their very own Vase Expressions!
