Give The Gift of FTD for Mother's Day! Review & GIVEAWAY

Mother's Day is almost here. It's less than one month away. If you have not already gotten a gift, now is the time to make a serious plan.

When you are getting a gift for arguably the most important person in your entire life, you need to make sure that is it perfect.

Waiting until the last minute is not wise. After all, as the saying goes, "It's the thought that counts." Which means that you need to put thought into it, not just throw something together at the last minute.

Luckily, though, you have me to give you ideas.

I am sure one of the top "go to" gifts is flowers. And flowers can be a very great gift. But they can also be a very poor gift. Quality is everything.

Freshness is probably the biggest factor, but there are others that are just as essential when giving flowers as a gift.

The variety of flowers makes all the difference. While almost all flowers are beautiful, you don't want a boring bunch of flowers that anyone can just pick up at the grocery store. You want to have something as unique and special as the recipient.

The presentation(packaging etc) needs to be beautiful too. You only get one chance to make a first impression. You could have the most beautiful(and expensive) diamond ring, but if you pull it out of a Cracker Jack box, you will certainly not have the same opinion as if you take it out of a Little Blue Box.

So if you want to give the gift of beautiful, high quality, fresh, unique flowers, there is no better place than FTD.

What I love the most about FTD, is their compassion. They really care about providing they very best products and making sure that the customer is 100% satisfied.

And they also are a proud supporter of Autism Speaks. The generosity of supporting any cause is very inspiring, but that fact that it is an Autism charity speaks to me more personally since my son has Autism.

When you order using this link, not only will you save 15% on your entire order, but FTD will also donate an extra 10% to Autism Speaks. I am so touched by this. I love that not only is FTD donate to a very worthy cause, but they are also bringing much needed awareness to an epidemic that is rising quickly with no answers.

Not only are they raising awareness through this donation and discount promotion, but also with the flowers themselves.

FTD currently has a large selection of Blue arrangements that coincide with the "Light It Up Blue" campaign for Autism Awareness.

I actually just got one of them, and it is the most beautiful arrangement I have ever seen.


Not only is this so wonderful because it stands for the "Light It Up Blue" Campaign, but also Blue is m favorite color, and just the fact that blue roses are so much more unique. It looks so elegant with the gorgeous blue vase.

This is how fresh and open these flowers were upon their arrival. I have ordered flowers in the past that were all closed(and yet didn't look this fresh) and by the time they finally bloomed they were dying. Now these. These are amazing.

 See, even before adding water or even taking the rubber band off, these flowers are so lovely and lively.

I cannot get over how breathtaking these flowers are. I stared at them all day. I actually had one of the worst days ever yesterday(and the problem is ongoing) and these spectacular flowers actually made my day a lot brighter.

I don't think that anyone could look at these amazing beauties and not smile.

They even look very chic when the arrive. The packaging is so tasteful.

This is the actual box that you first see when they are delivered. NO ugly shipping box. The label is just on the other side of this charming box.

The inside is even more exquisite.

I love how sophisticated these are in every aspect. FTD is in a class all it's own. I have never had a flower delivery this nice. not even hand delivered from a local shop. It is mind blowing.

I cannot believe I wasted all that money on sub par flowers in the past. From now on, it will only be FTD.

If you want to give the gift of flowers, please do it right and choose FTD. As much as your mother(or any mother in your life) means to you, she deserves the best, and FTD certainly is.

That is why FTD and I are giving you all the chance to win a stunning Loving Wishes Fiesta Rose Bouquet
Loving Wishes Fiesta Rose Bouquet - 12 Stems - VASE INCLUDED

You can keep it for yourself or send it to someone you love. It will be delivered on May 10th, just in time for Mother's Day.
