Mother’s Day in Bloom

May 10, 2012

With Mother’s day right around the corner , it’s time to show mom your appreciation. Flowers have always been one of the most popular gifts for the occasion, but what’s the best way to get them? Is it cheaper to order on-line or get them from a local florist? Roses are an excellent choice , but watch out for the thorns…like expense , hassle with ordering and timely delivery.

Watch the video above to see Angie Moreschi put the options to the test, in this popular CWN story comparing ProFlowers, 1-800-Flowers, Teleflora and a local florist.  Click here for more detailed information on the comparison.

Gifts Other Than Flowers

If you’re looking for something other than flowers to give as a gift, be sure to do your research before sending one of those fresh fruit packages by Edible Arrangements.  They caused so much indigestion for Angie that she wrote this piece for “Where’s the Outrage.”

Complain if You’re Not Satisfied

Lastly, more than anything, remember to stand up and complain if you are dissatisfied.  This is tough, but even if it means telling your loved one that your gift was a bust, it is important to do so. Otherwise, they will never know they wasted their money and may use the company again.
