Vases are Going Green! Say It With Vases Review and Giveaway


I stumbled upon Say It With Vases while I was online searching for some unique gift ideas. Not only are these one-of-a-kind vases green (made from recycled plastic) they are portable, expandable and reusable.

Jill, owner of Say it with Vases, and blogger at Virtual Mom, sent me one vase to review and one vase to giveaway. Thank you Jill!

From Say It With Vases: The vases have been sold to hospital gift shops, garden clubs, home d├ęcor stores, flower shops and other outlets. They make great gifts for teachers (unbreakable and store flat) and for bringing along anytime you give flowers.

These plastic vases are an alternative to using a company to send flowers long distance. When considering shipping and handling fees, using that type of service gets expensive. Say It With Vases offers American Express gift cards for purchase with their vases, for your recipient to buy her favorite fresh flowers locally. This avoids any shipping and handling cost and allows the recipient to buy flowers close by at their time of choice.


The Review: The vase is 11” tall, 6” wide with a reinforced sturdy base. The design of the base is very similar to the base of a juice pouch (like Capri Sun). The mouth of the vase is 3” wide.

Like the package instructed, I simply filled the vase with water and added my small bouquet. My bunch of flowers fit nicely and despite being made of plastic, the vase is very sturdy.

Note - A large arrangement (over a 3” diameter bunch of stems) will not fit due to the size of the mouth. Splitting up a large arrangement into two of these affordable vases would solve that dilemma.

I appreciate that this is a reusable, green product and only hope it was made from recycled plastic water bottles (as these pile up as mountains of waste!) I like the fact that it stores flat, saving space. Collecting an oddball assortment of glass vases will be a thing of the past. The retro designs and colors are eye-catching. What a fun, unique and affordable gift – perhaps for my son’s teachers this holiday season!

Buy It: Say It With Vases recycled plastic vases are sold for $8.00. Shipping is free.
