Holiday Office Gifting

Tis’ the season to be sending some holiday cheer.  Whether you’re thanking clients, recognizing employees, or sending some love to your best vendors, your local florist has so many options for leaving a big impression on your recipient.  Here are some popular options we offer at Rockcastle Florist for your Office sending pleasure:

{1} Poinsettia Plants.  These beautiful plants are a staple of the holiday season, and make a perfect gift.  The poinsettia plant is a long lasting option, making it perfect for those who want to send Christmas wishes early this year.  Finished off with a beautiful holiday bow, these plants will bring a smile to whomever you are sending.


{2} Gourmet & Fruit Baskets.  Food is always the safe option for gifting.  Who doesn’t love a basket of tasty treats?   You can choose from a basket of fresh fruit, gourmet items, or a combination of both.  Baskets can be customized to fit a variety of themes and budgets.
