As much as we would all love to spend time with our families and friends over the festive season, it’s not always possible. Some family members may have relocated to another country and returning for Christmas might not be on the cards. Now, while you might not be able to celebrate together in person, you can still spoil one another by sending gifts. Unfortunately, sending a parcel is not always easy or cheap. Post offices and couriers are quite inundated with deliveries at this time of the year and it’s not uncommon for packages to arrival late or not at all. This is what makes so many choose a special flower delivery for Christmas instead. Online florists have made it possible to send flowers to anyone, anywhere and all from the comfort of your own home.
One of the main things that detour people from using couriers to send international parcels is the price. More often than not, the price to send the package abroad ends up costing more than the contents of the package itself! Even if you decide to use your local postal service, the price of shipping can still exceed the value of the package and, to top it all, many post offices are notoriously unreliable. No matter whether you choose a courier or your local post office, the holidays keep all of those pour delivery folks really busy and there are more deliveries to make around this time of year than any other. Due to the massive influx of deliveries, there is an increased sense of confusion and this my result in delays, damages or even the loss of your package.
With an online florist, things are so much simpler. You just need to browse around online, find the florist you like the most, find your favourite bouquet of fresh flowers, add any extras if you wish and then proceed to pay. Your flower delivery will be made to the address you specify and according to delivery schedule specified. Now, all you need to do is sit back, relax and let those professional florists take care of the rest!
Flowers are excellent gifts for anyone and you will find that certain bouquets might appeal more to women while others are ideal for male recipients. Flowers also make great gifts for couples and families. You will also find that many online florists offer a range of optional products that you can include with your order. Examples of these extras include quality vases, luxury chocolates, a bottle of bubbly or even a cute and cuddly stuffed animal. Yes, the exquisite flowers are the main gift and they are more than suitable to send all on their own. Adding on something extra is like the icing on the cake and, since you’re not having to pay an unthinkable amount for international postage, you can surely afford to splash out a little and send flowers with a little something extra.
Another advantage of ordering flowers online is that you can monitor the progress of your order from home, work or even on the go from your mobile device. Make sure that you keep that reference number or tracking number handy as well as proof of payment and any relevant paperwork related to your order. Some sites might allow you to track your flower order on their site whereas others might refer you to the courier’s website. If you are not provided with a means to track your order, you can always contact their customer service department if you feel the need to check up. This can be done via phone, email or even live online chat, depending on what that particular online florist offers in terms of these services. Even if you do make contact via email, you should receive a swift response. Especially if you make sure to include all relevant information regarding your order.
