What to Know When Shopping Party, Gift and Flower Deals
When shopping for flowers or gifts—for yourself, for a special occasion or for a party—keep the following in mind:
Since many people send flowers as gifts for holidays, especially Valentine's Day and Mother's Day, prices go up around those times. If you can manage to send flowers before or after holidays, you'll save simply by not paying inflated prices.
Some flower delivery companies work with local florists who arrange and deliver your bouquet. Because not all florists will have the same stock, your item may differ somewhat from the picture on the website.
If you're hosting a party, consider ordering flowers that'll complement the theme. If you're not sure what to order, check the categories available from your favorite online florists. Many companies offer themed selections, in all the right colors, for birthdays, graduations and baby showers.
Watch out for hidden fees, such as shipping and handling charges or taxes, which can amount to $15 or more. Use a flowers promo code for free shipping to offset these costs.
Most floral delivery services have a satisfaction guarantee. If you're unhappy with your delivery, check the terms. You may be able to get a free replacement.
If you want to send more than just flowers as a gift, look into bundles. Florists often offer gifts, such as stuffed animals or candy, as optional add-ons. If you have a gift coupon, you might be able to add a little something with the flowers for free.
If you can't find just the right gift with the flower companies, consider sending a second package, such as mouth-watering pears from Harry and David, hearty steaks from Omaha Steaks or decadent sweets from The Swiss Colony. Use gift coupons to bring down the prices of these thoughtful deliveries.
If you're really struggling to come up with the perfect gift idea, look into gift card deals. You can purchase gift cards to any number of popular merchants, at a discount off face value, when you purchase them on sale or from a gift card exchange service like Raise, Gyft or CardCash.
