Scrolling through social media often notifies us of that all-important birthday or anniversary we may have let slip from memory because of the busy lives we lead, perhaps a friend has just added to their family or passed a driving test. Presumably just clicking “like” or sending a digital message just isn’t enough to show your loved ones how much you care, or how guilty you feel for forgetting about their important milestone! There are so many occasions worthy of celebrating by sending flowers, and we may not always have the time to go down to the local florist, especially at a moment’s notice. What if you do visit the store of your choice and they’ve just sold out of the exact flowers you want? It’s Bleems to the rescue!
Originally 965 Flowers and based only in Kuwait, this started as a service that allows the customer to peruse a number of options where loads of stores sit under the same banner. Instead of having to go to any number of websites, Instagram accounts and drive (or taxi) around looking for recommended flower shops, you just go to a one-stop online shop.
Happily, 965 blossomed into Bleems and expanded into other area codes. Now customers can access the finest flowers available in Bahrain, UAE and Saudi Arabia too. This is more than a stroke of luck if you need to make your flower deliveries to friends, family and other loved ones in these areas.
The whole process is effortless, as all you have to do is simply download the Bleems app and select which country you wish to send to. Click on the “Flowers” icon and here you can consider the entire menu available to you. It is possible to filter even further, choosing from the newest offerings to those within your specified budget, or even by flower or the name of the arrangement, if you have seen it somewhere before.
Do you have a specific occasion in mind? The app has divided each and every flower arrangement into twelve useful sections such as Graduation, Housewarming and Congratulations for example, as well as “suitable for all occasions” and a “seasonal” section.
Once you have clicked on the option you desire, the picture further opens up with a description of the flowers used in the bouquet. Cleverly, the dimensions of the arrangements are given too, so you can determine the impact if you wanted that bouquet of roses, delivered to the office of the recipient, to be large enough to make them the envy of all their colleagues!
There is also a quick glance box that tells you whether or not the flowers can be delivered “same day” making it easier to choose options for that last-minute delivery. The mobile site is utterly pain-free and easy to use, and the website www.bleems.com is just as user friendly.
This is a business that understands exactly what a customer needs, and that the app or website needs to be as stress free as possible; you may already be under a bit of pressure if you are using a flower service last-minute, so Bleems makes it simple, swift and certain.
Bleems is currently partnered with over ninety shops to make sure you are offered the widest assortment of flowers available, at your fingertips, and if you wanted to make that floral presentation even more special, there are confectionary and other gift ideas available too.
Like what you see? Then you can click on the supplier’s name and the other offerings that that particular supplier has on the app will pop up too. There’s even a supplier with high-end children’s playthings that you can send with your chosen arrangement!
The Bleems service is fast and convenient, and it is the largest online platform for flowers in the Middle East. There are some simply stunning arrangements to choose from. You may invest in a sculptural display of Oriental orchids set into a stone planter, choose hydrangeas overflowing from a china vase, gift glass domes filled to bursting with blooms, or consign the cutest little cacti.
With excellent quality and high standards being a precursor to shops being allowed to sign up to the Bleems botanic athenaeum, you are guaranteed the Bleems “stamp of approval” with every purchase you make. You can always trust that the baskets or bouquets sent, will be the best on offer and delivered on time.
If last minute notifications are not your style for sending flowers and you like to plan out your gifting, then Bleems also has a pre-scheduling service so you can plan the year ahead and organize your budget accordingly. From same day to pre-scheduling, you can track you order so you know exactly when it has been picked up and finally delivered.
Using your provided email address, they will send you emails with these notifications. There are simply no excuses any more…bazaar is in the Zahra Complex if you are wondering where to send your next bunch.
