It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas here at Rebel Hill Florist, and we've got the Holiday Gift Guide to prove it. Packed with our most sensational seasonal blooms and vivid greens, this year's crop of designs are inspired by the rich hues and textures of the holidays, but they can also evoke a serene walk in the snowy woods. Our flower gifts and plants capture the best of the season, whether you're looking for a centerpiece, bouquet, wreath or more.
In this week's blog, we want to highlight the items that reflect Nashville's holiday spirit in particular. Read More about Charming Local Gifts From Our Holiday Guide »
If you're participating in Secret Santa this year, lucky you. This group gift swap has a long and storied past; in the U.S., it was inspired by a 20th century philanthropist who generously distributed $100 to strangers in a Kansas City street. Elsewhere, anonymous holiday giving has been a long-standing tradition. In Latin America, it's called "Secretos Amigos," in Ireland, "Kris Kringel." No matter where it's played, the premise remains the same: a giver's identity remains concealed, keeping the focus on the act of giving rather than the individual responsible for it.
We at Rebel Hill Florist have put together a couple of gift ideas that will make your Secret Santa gift stand apart from the rest. Read More about Special Secret Santa Gifts »

We spend on average 34 hours a week at work, so it's really no stretch to say that our colleagues can be like family to us. And while we're decking the workplace halls and planning the office party this season, we're furthering that connection, strengthening our ties to each other and creating both holiday and team spirit.
We at Rebel Hill Florist think it's a wonderful time of year to honor our work family with gifts. Read More about Great Gifts for Co-Workers »
Last year, nearly 50 million people traveled at least 50 miles over hill and dale to break bread with their loved ones for Thanksgiving. There's nothing better than gathering around a table with friends and family to tuck into a gorgeous feast, especially if you didn't have to prepare it! While you may be contributing an item to the dinner table, we here at Rebel Hill Florist are huge fans of the host gift - a special offering to your hosts that expresses your gratitude for their efforts. We believe you should arrive with your green bean casserole and a beautiful bouquet of flowers. Read More about Fall Flowers for Your Holiday Host »

Sweetest Day is a day set aside to make other people smile. And although it may not be the most well-known holiday, we think it should be, based on the fact that it was created to make sure that the poor and underprivileged felt valued.
The observance began nearly 100 years ago in Cleveland, when over 25,000 boxes of chocolate were donated by local candy companies to orphans, shut-ins, and the elderly. The idea spread rapidly thanks to heavy media coverage, and over the years the regional initiative grew to include any gesture of kindness designed to let someone know that they are special. Actually, that is something that we at Rebel Hill Florist strive for every day - to make people smile and feel loved when they receive our beautiful bouquets and arrangements.
