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.
