A lovely idea for a Valentine's present this. Some of you may remember it from last year, to be honest I put it in my email every year. This makes a great difference to the Teddy Charity for the children's hospital it supports.

Last year MoneySavers balloon buying bought two pulse oximeter machines worth £1,200 which will be used to measure the oxygen levels in the blood and lungs of infants and young children overnight without disturbing them. From what I gather as a very small fundraising operation, the traffic from this is substantial to it... so I've no qualms in pushing it :)

What is it? has very Romantic packages that are ideal for your loved one. The site has balloons for various occasions.

More info from Balloonsbypost:

"This year we've over 100 different designs to pick and mix and the ability from February 8th to put up to 8 balloons in one box; Jumbo sizes and large shapes for the first time; great value bunches and a couple with music. All balloons will be going out as a special Valentine's package which will include petals, rose, heart choc, heart confettios etc. etc.

The larger the order, the more free items we include. And all of this now earns Honey Points (well what else could we call it when we help The Teddy!), our brand new loyalty scheme that allows regular customers to gain discounts on future orders."

Why is it worth buying from them?

As well as being an unusual, thoughtful gift, it's in aid of The Teddy Charity which buys medical equipment for sick children being nursed at home so it's a hugely worthwhile cause.

    So I went for it. But it had gone.'

    Hi Lesley,

    We don't put any of the sender's details on the parcel so if you choose not to say who it's from when you specify your message then it will remain completely anonymous.

    Best wishes

  • Hi Anita,
    As our balloons go by post they are delivered during the day at various times depending on the area you live in. You can request that it be delivered to an office instead if that makes life easier or perhaps ask a neighbour to take it in for you.

    If you want to leave it with a neighbour, please let us know and we'll write a message on the box for the postman.
    Hope this helps
    Best wishes
  • Gotta say. I sent one of these to my mum last mothers day and she was delighted. They even put chocolates in the box which was fab cos I didn't ask for them. Apparently they didn't last very long tho!!!!
    What goes around - comes around
    give lots and you will always recieve lots

    I sent a balloon package from this company last year for my sister's 50th birthday. As it is on 15th February there is a risk of being ripped off for flowers and it also seemed like an original alternative 'bouquet' to send to her...

    To say that she was thrilled is an understatement! As she opened the box the balloons burst forth and made her squeal, lol! With the way that you can 'pick and mix' balloons on the website I had spent a very happy hour or two selecting various suitable balloons that would go well together - but you can just order a bunch 'off the peg' if time is tight. I just took a look and the bunches seem to start from £15.95 - less than many of the Valentines flower bouquets being advertised and NO worry about whether the bouquet will be dead or alive!!!

    The packaging was excellent and the balloons lasted for a really long time.
    I would not hesitate to recommend this company! (and the charity aspect makes it even more reason to buy through them)
