From You Flowers

FROM YOU FLOWERS

Visit Site

Cost:

From $36 to $385

Don't be fooled by the name: From You Flowers has an extensive line of gift baskets that include way more than just roses and tulips. That's a big change from the last time we evaluated this gift basket store, when they had little to offer and what they did have was difficult to sort through.

From your first moment on the Gift Baskets page of the site, you'll see right away that they have more than 300 options to choose from. You can sort them by price range and best sellers, or go to the navigation links on the left side to shop by occasion or type of gift.

This is also one of the only gift basket retailers that offers same-day delivery on selected orders. You can find that link on the left side of the page. Also, as you browse the options, each gift basket is clearly labeled as Same Day or Next Day delivery, making this a great choice if you need your gift to arrive very soon.

On the lowest end of the price range on From You Flowers, most of the choices under "Gift Baskets"...aren't actually baskets. Instead, you'll find roses with stuffed animals, chocolate-covered strawberries, and balloons. The first actual gift basket is the Sweetest Candy design, which includes several varieties of candy you'd probably find in the checkout aisle at your grocery store. You've got 3 price points for this gift basket: $37.99 for Regular, $47.49 for Deluxe, and $56.99 for Premium - but no description to let you know exactly what the upgraded options include, other than "more candy" than the original. You'll also see add-on possibilities for balloons and teddy bears.

The luxury end of the price scale at From You Flowers includes the Absolute Decadence gift basket. Once again, you have Regular, Deluxe and Premium options, ranging in price from $384.74 to $403.74 - and still with very few details to tell you exactly how much to expect. In general, this arrangement includes candies from Harry London, such as truffles, pralines, and chocolate espresso squares in a woven willow basket.

Although you won't see it in the previews of each gift basket, there may be customer reviews available when you click on specific items. For example, the candy basket we described had an average rating of 4.6/5 stars across two dozen reviews, while the Absolute Decadence assortment had no reviews at all.

When we ordered our gift basket, everything went smoothly until we got to the actual order/payment process. The $14.95 service/handling fee wasn't disclosed until the final "review order" page, which felt very underhanded. We appreciated the mysterious "impact radius discount" of $20.75 we were given, but then frustrated again when a link to "delivery rebate" popped up a blank screen. Finally, the basket we selected was listed at a discounted price on the site, but when we got to the final page before clicking "send order", we saw that it had reverted to the more expensive price. Maybe that's where the "delivery rebate" came in, but there was no explanation to confirm that conclusion.

While we appreciate From You Flowers' 100% satisfaction guarantee that offers you a refund or redelivery, that doesn't do much when gift baskets arrive late or not at all. Even the most impressive assortment of treats and presents isn't very impressive if it misses the person's birthday, and what good is a sympathy arrangement if it's delivered well after the memorial service?

Those are the kinds of complaints - hundreds of them - that we found when looking at this retailer's reputation on the BBB site. Yes, they respond appropriately to each complaint, which is largely why this store still has an "A+" rating there, but how much frustration and disappointment are you willing to risk? Given how much we experienced during the order process alone, we're not optimistic about the final outcome of any gift basket order placed with this store.

With so many options available when shopping for a gift basket, From You Flowers just doesn't deliver the kind of customer experience you deserve. We recommend that you consider the higher-ranked retailers in our review when placing your order.

But, as you'll quickly notice as you begin to shop for a gift basket, some companies consistently deliver high-quality selections while others provide just the bare minimum and don't put much thought or effort into the presentation or the included items.

To make sure that your gift basket is a delivery that impresses, here are several criteria to keep in mind as you consider the gift basket companies on the market today:

  • Variety. How many options does the service offer? Within a single category (e.g. baby shower, wedding, get well soon), do you have a number of choices?
  • Quality. Are the products gourmet, high-end, and/or well-constructed, or are you getting cheap things you could buy at a supermarket or dollar store?
  • Price. What will you spend on the gift basket of your choice? Do you get a good value for what you spend, especially compared with other stores? Does the company offer any customer-friendly perks like free shipping?
  • Customer Service. How easy does the gift basket company make it to find what you want? Do they offer a satisfaction guarantee if the basket is late or just doesn't meet expectations? What do previous customers have to say about their experience with the company?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best gift baskets available today. We hope this information helps you find the perfect basket for your next gift-giving occasion!
