Mother's Day Gift Idea: The Ultimate Rose Review and Giveaway - $140 Value

Mother's Day is right around the corner and I'm sure we are all wondering what to get mom this year.  Mom's work so hard day in and day out, all year long, from the moment they wake up until the moment they go to sleep.  I think we can all agree that mom deserves only the best!


Roses are always a mom favorite no matter what the occasion.  Have you ever given mom a 3 foot, 4 foot or even a 5 foot tall rose?  The Ultimate Rose has all that and more!  Including over-sized teddy bears and luxurious gift baskets for every occasion.

To my delight, I received a dozen Princess Roses with a clear vase! I had never seen roses this tall and beautiful in my entire life.  They were almost as tall as my darling 7 year old daughter. 

Beautifully wrapped and packaged with care to assure their safety.  Each rose has a little water tube to assure that they arrive safely.  The stems were very strong, luckily they send cutting sheers with your roses as well.  There is no way that a regular pair of kitchen scissors would cut those thick stems.

The roses were amazing.  Their size, color and the way they smelled were top notch!  My daughter was totally in love with them and without hesitation claimed them as hers!


I'm honestly not sure who enjoyed them more!  I can assure you that they brightened our day, each and every single day we had them.  There is just something about a beautiful bouquet that puts a smile on your face.  If you're looking to make that very special someone's heart skip a beat, The Ultimate Rose is the way to do it!




The Ultimate Rose specializes in extremely large roses for anniversaries, birthday arrangements, congratulations gifts, get well bouquets, I'm sorry roses, just because roses, I love you roses, new baby greetings, giant red roses, thank you roses, engagement roses, wedding flowers, Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, Father's Day, corporate gifts, graduation flowers, and roses for any special occasion. Make someone's day, send them The Ultimate Rose today!



WIN IT:

 ONE lucky Being Frugal and Making it Work reader is going to receive a Dozen 3' Princess Roses from The Ultimate Rose ($140 value).

These are gorgeous!
I am already a follower..
Just clicked on to follow with networkblogs..

But now I will tell you who I would give them to:
MY DAD.
I am in NJ, moving to Florida...
He is Arizona.... extremely bad health..and my mons isn't any better...but in my 40n years..my father has never failed to get my mother her red roses (mine were always the pink) on every birthday, valentines day..and mothers day for me when I became a mom....he does the same for my daughter too..
I think Dad deserves some roses now.

Ok... I was getting choked up there...
Now... I will tweet..Fb you and all the rest!
Have a great weekend1
Smiles!

Cat & Cricket said...

ok.. I did FB...twitter.. oh goodness...I started to get confused!
But I think I was everywhere..
and heck.... all the roses are beautiful!!
Thanks~
