Last year I decided to head out early on Black Friday morning and hit a couple of stores with my sisters, look for some bargains and participate in the annual shopping along with millions of other Americans. How bad could it be?
As it turns out, really bad. It was like all those millions of Americans were shopping in the same store with me! So this year, I'm trying to get my holiday shopping done early -- or online at places like 1-800-Flowers.com -- so I can stay put when the rest of the US starts looking for holiday presents.
Here's what 1-800-Flowers.com has to say about their service when it comes to holiday shopping:

From The Popcorn Factory
1-800-Flowers.com sent me a Holiday Poinsettia Popcorn tin from The Popcorn Factory, and it was like Christmas had arrived a month ahead of time! The giant tin is decorated with a vibrant holiday poinsettia design, so when I leave it out on the kitchen countertop, it will blend in perfectly with all my Christmas decorations. In any case, I have to leave it out all the time because we're constantly grabbing a handful of the delicious popcorn. My family loves all 3 flavors (butter, cheese and caramel). At first I thought, no big deal, then after a couple of handfuls I was hooked! My dad is visiting and he's the biggest Popcorn Factory fan of all. Not a meal goes by without his little side dish of popcorn! It arrived over 1 week ago, and we've been noshing ever since -- which is quite a testament to the huge amount of popcorn packed into this tin. It's delicious, it's plentiful, it's beautiful, it's over-the-top -- and it makes a great holiday treat.
I can't think of anything I'd improve about 1-800-Flowers.com when it comes to ordering holiday gifts! The selection, ease of ordering, global delivery and quick turnaround make it the perfect place to shop for holiday gifts.
