Electronic gift cards are usually a great thing to get as a present if you've forgotten someone's birthday or other important date - even if you don't remember until the day of the birthday, instantaneous delivery makes sure your gift is there on time, right? Wrong! At least if the electronic gift card is from Overstock.com. The product notes say it can take up to 24 hours for delivery, and if my experience is typical, it will take the full 24 hours. Wish I'd just sent flowers when I realized my oversight this morning - at least that way I could have gotten same-day delivery. Not with this product, though!

I sent this as a gift and the receiver loved the flowers. They were extremely impressed as to how they were individually wrapped for the delivery.

This flower I have ordered them as gift couple of times. I have also order different flower from overstock before. All of my friends and family who received flower from us are all love it. And say they are beautiful and fresh and last a long time...... Only one thing.......I did indicate this is a gift when I order it. I also write a gift message. But there is no card. And there is not where on any thing on the package that has my gift message. So they don't know it's from me. I have to call them and tell the people who I send flower to , that is from me. This happen every single time I send flower from overstock.com. But price is so good in this website. I will still use it again. Just hope Overstock.com will improve...and have a gift card or a piece of paper that print my gift message I typed.

I sent these flowers as a gift and the person said they were absolutely beautiful. She said the packaging is so unique, every stem was perfect. I have used overstock to send flowers before, and have never been disappointed in the response.

I have ordered these several times as gifts and the feedback from receivers has always been positive. The flowers arrive very quickly, fresh, and maintain their beauty for weeks.

A great gift to send for a sympathy instead of flowers or fruit. Great value and I ordered this more than 4 times in the past.

It was a huge disappointment that you had no way of telling the recipient of this gift who the flowers were from. When I finished my order and realized you hadn't made provision for a message to the recipient (i.e., Happy Birthday!), or who the flowers were from I called. The rep told me this capability doesn't exist. Also, I had no idea of when the flowers would arrive so I had to call and let her know right after I placed the order what was going to come -- at some point in the future. She told me the flowers were nice but I didn't see them so don't know if they really were nice or not.

I was skeptical about ordering a plant for a birthday gift and I spoke with my friend after the delivery. She loved the plant and said it is beautiful. Ordering flowers and plants through the florist cost as much for shipping as it does for the gift. Thank you Overstock.!

This is a classy basket. I ordered it for myself so I could see firsthand all the items before I would send it as a gift. I was not disappointed. The chocolate items are yummy as well as the popcorn. This will be my choice from now on instead of sending flowers as the situation dictates. You can't go wrong with this gift basket!

As these flowers were a gift I can only go by what the recipent told me. She said they were beautiful. I am dsiappoianted as there wasn"t any type of card enclosed with the package so they didn"t know who the flowers came from. This put me in the bad position of asking if they were ever delivered! This is the second time something was delivered without any type of To/From card inclosed.

We selected these lovely flowers as a Mother's Day gift. Mom called raving about the color, selection, condition, and overall beauty. We are so pleased with the value and the beauty of this product. We'll definitely be back!

I sent these to my motherinlaw as a thank you gift (who already has a few live orchids) and she raved about them! First, she can't believe they were from Overstock. However, I told her I have always had great luck sending flowers from here. She made two small arrangements just in time for a luncheon she was having.

a magical functional, real item that can be delivered to you in days smelled great, felt great and was a great gift for a loved one it sure beat sending regular flowers hard to wear because it is so fragile, but thats the way it is

I can only write this review based on comments received from the person that received this as a gift. The flowers were flown second day air from Hilo, Hi to San Antonio, Tx. The floral arrangement was beyond beautiful. They accomplished the goal, to provide a beautiful birthday gift and secondly to help recall some beautiful memories from Hawaii. Outstanding product. Would order again.

This basket was a Mother's gift for my husband's mother. It was sent to her in another state so we didn't get to see it. She told us it was great. She had open-heart surgery at 86 years old in November and came through with flying colors. So we thought this would be a great gift instead of flowers or candy. She loved it.
Giving thoughtful gifts is one of the joys in life. Shopping for those gifts, however, can sometimes be stressful. But if you consider the recipient’s interests and hobbies, then you can narrow down your search. Some gifts are timeless. Giving a traditional gift for an anniversary or milestone birthday adds a sense of importance to the event. A jewelry box, a bottle of wine, a cigar humidor: These are the little luxuries that always make good gifts. When you want to recognize your employees’ accomplishments, look for executive gifts that will upgrade their work spaces. Desk accessories make excellent professional gifts. High-quality pens are luxuries that show your employees your gratitude for a job well done. What’s better than giving one gift? How about a basket full of goodies? Gift baskets are an easy way to spoil your loved ones with gifts. Send a baby gift basket to new parents, or brighten your sister’s day with a spa gift basket. And there are gourmet food baskets for almost any occasion. For Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, and birthdays, fresh flowers are always the perfect gift. A bouquet of mixed flowers is perfect for any occasion -- or even “just because.” If you want to send a message of love, you can’t go wrong with a dozen red roses.
To send a gift that will make a big impression, look no further than ready-made gift baskets. When you send a thank you gift basket, you’ll really let the receiver know how much you appreciate them. If you can’t be there to take care of a sick friend, you can send a get well basket. And new parents always need lots of gear, so you can take care of several things at once with a baby gift basket. This is a present that will not be forgotten. If you’re not sure which one to choose, just consider the recipient’s interests. If you’re choosing a food gift basket, consider whether they like salty or sweet. Will they prefer gourmet snacks or classic candy they’ve enjoyed since childhood? A fruit and cheese gift basket is a perfect way to say “welcome to the neighborhood.” A care package with a few sweets in it will be sure to lift a college student’s spirits. Your wife, your sister, your child’s teacher: These are all people who work hard and could use a spa gift basket. Filled with bath and body products, these are the perfect way to let someone know they deserve to take break. These aren’t just for women; look for bath baskets for men if you know a guy who has earned some relaxation time.
Are you looking for a present that is sure to get used? Whether you’re shopping for a gourmand or just a friend with a sweet tooth, you can’t go wrong with gourmet food. Other gifts may end up in the back of a closet, but treats are sure to be eaten and enjoyed. Cookies, candy, and chocolates are all excellent for saying “thank you” to employees and clients, whether it’s given during the holiday season or as a mid-year surprise. You could also send healthy treats, like fresh fruit or salsas. Consider the recipient’s lifestyle before you make your selection. Beverages make an excellent gift for many occasions. A bottle of wine can say “thank you” or “congratulations.” An assortment of teas is perfect for saying “get well” or “you deserve a little relaxation.” And when you want to send a little motivation, try a bag of coffee beans or a box of K-cups. Are you looking for a unique holiday gift? Snacks could be the answer. An assortment of dried fruit and nuts will be an unexpected treat. An array of cheeses will show you want to spoil them. Or shop for sauces and spices to give to someone who appreciates a little extra flavor.
When you’re planning wedding, you’ll want to spend some time shopping for decorations. The glasses you use to make a toast, the pen your guests use to sign the guest book, and the knife you use to cut the cake: These are the supplies that will help you make the big day unforgettable. Before you start planning, be sure to consult a wedding checklist; there are many details that can be overlooked. Then, make your own shopping list after considering all the options. Also consult with the coordinator at the venue for your ceremony or reception; they may have decorations for you to choose from, and you’ll just need to fill in a few extras. You’ll probably need to take care of personal items, like ceremony sets and ring pillows. If you’re planning the bridal shower or bachelorette party, be sure to pick up a few supplies that will make the event memorable. A playful sash for the bride or fun hats for all the bridesmaids will get everyone in the party mood. Don’t forget to shop for gifts for your wedding party. It’s customary to give a gift to each of your bridesmaids and groomsmen, and many newlyweds like to give keepsake gifts to their parents and to each other.
