Given the recent developments surrounding the spread of COVID-19, UNIK Flowers & Gifts staff wants to assure you that we are taking every step possible to ensure the health and safety of our clients, and collaborators.
We are closely monitoring the situation and are adhering to all CDC protocols and guidelines. At our design studio, we are regularly sanitizing all workstations, shared spaces and products.

As an additional precaution, all our collaborators especially those who do our deliveries, have been required to wear a facemask as well as making sure that all the floral arrangements are left at the front door of our customers. All our customers will be contacted by our delivery staff for a guaranteed safe, contact free pick-up.

If we are out of a particular color box, we can substitute a box of the same size in a different color that our designers feel would not detract from the overall appearance of the arrangement. We have the most creative designers on our team who professionally recreate UNIK Flowers & Gifts designs based on their creative interpretation.

Your roses should last 5 days, but they can last much longer with proper care. Follow our guide below to get the most out of them.
• Roses should be placed in a clean vase with fresh lukewarm water and flower food.
• Remove leaves that fall below the waterline, these leaves are damaged by water and cause the roses to wilt.
• Trim the stems a little each day to expose the fresh tissue and place back in the vase with fresh water and more flower food.
• Top up the water when necessary and never let the water get cloudy.
• Avoid heat or direct sun.
