Handmade bouquets can be awfully thoughtful, whereas bouquets made of hands tend to be bulky and illegal. For special occasions, leave it to professional bouquets with the help of today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of floral arrangements, gourmet baskets, and gifts at Petals to Go in New Braunfels at The Oaks Shopping Center.
Petals to Go fashions flowers into cohesive works of art in the form of both predesigned and customizable bouquets. The shop boasts a selection of ready-to-gift, market-style floral arrangements such as the pretty palette ($36.99) of cheery pinks and crimsons. Opt for a red-rose trio ($31.99) to brighten the morose mood of a blue-violet buddy.
Borrow cuttings of herbaceous knowledge from expert florists to create a custom arrangement. Green-thumbed gifters purchase bulk flowers to bunch in the comfort of their own blanket forts. For those who don't have time to mourn mortal flora, Petals to Go carries a selection of nonliving gifts ($6.25+), including figurines, inspirational plaques, and plates from brands such as Willow Tree, Julie Chen, and Glas Fusion.
