This week we are joined by Steph Douglas, Founder of Don’t Buy Her Flowers. 

Steph Douglas founded Don’t Buy Her Flowers in 2014, leaving her brand marketing role, to pursue an idea she had following the birth of her children. 

After receiving eight bunches of flowers when she had her first baby, Steph realised the well-meaning bouquet soon lost its shine when you were the one filling vases, all while juggling a newborn and feeling overwhelmed. Steph started sending building packages to her friends who were also managing the early days of motherhood, and she saw the delight, and real emotion a thoughtful package, tailored specifically to encourage them to take a bit of time for themselves, could bring. 

With a background in corporate brand marketing, Steph knew she could “sell” a product but the journey to building a retail business was new and unnerving; despite admitting she’s never worked harder in her life, it has always felt exactly like the right path. Originally launching for new mums, the company now offers packages for all occasions, including gifts for him, workplaces, couples and more. insta @steph_dontbuyherflowers @dontbuyherflowers Twitter @dbhfgifts Facebook
