Flowers In A Box

Flowers In A Box

So you found a website with great prices, a free vase, and guaranteed next day delivery.  Is it really that “great” of a deal and gift?  Things to consider when having a flower gift delivered to the Columbus Ohio area from an online company sending via FED-EX next day.  After thinking about these keynotes, see the video that offers what that special someone will experience.

  1. That special someone will have to design their own gift, a gift that could be professionally designed for the same cost.
  2. That special gift will need to be unpacked; it’s not ready for immediate enjoyment.  Kind of takes the excitement away from receiving flowers.
  3. That special gift will be placed on a truck with no water for 24 – 48 hours. Sometimes much longer.
  4.  A Fed-Ex or UPS driver will be delivering “flowers”?  Seems a little strange.
  5. That gift will be left on the doorstep, winter, summer, spring, or fall, in all weather conditions if no one is home.  There is no second or third delivery attempt.  Your local florist will often attempt multiple deliveries and phone calls to schedule a time that is convenient for the recipient, not what’s convenient for the driver or courier service.
  6. Finally, Service, Service, Service.  Who will offer you a better local service?  A company 300 miles away from where your gift is being delivered or a company 5-20 miles away?  A local florist will go to the extreme to take special care of both you and that special person you are sending a gift to.
