OTC doesn’t always promote holidays – no particular reason, but too often it can feel a bit forced. However, this Valentine’s Day, we did decide to have a little fun. Hence the recent, “you already missed it, but here are some post-Valentines’ gift ideas” post.
We also partnered with online florist ProFlowers to see what their flowers-by-UPS would be like. In this day and age, everything seems to come over the web, so roses direct to your door for this all-important day seemed both convenient and, of course, fraught with potential disaster.
Not this time. The ProFlower roses that arrived right when they were supposed to. They were fresh, perky, and, frankly, just plain beautiful. And this wasn’t some product review in a vacuum; the recipient was Mrs. OTC. She was very happy – a good sign, given that she had no idea what was happening – and gave a thumb’s up to whole endeavor.
The flowers were (36 long-stem roses) were carefully wrapped in two bunches, each with its own hydration pack. Fitted into the delivery box was a surprisingly lovely cut glass vase that will actually see future use, two packs of flower food, and some easy to follow directions. All in all, a darn good operation.
The final verdict? ProFlowers indeed delivered. We would happily use them again.
Now, back to menswear!
