iFlowerGift.com Review

I love flowers, and making outdoor spaces nice and colourful, but we are renting at the moment and there's not much in the garden, and we won't be here much longer - that said it was still boring having no flowers around so I was happy to get the chance to review iFlowergift.com.

This is a new start-up that offers a select range of different flowers such as roses or gerberas, with prices roughly around the £19-£30 mark. Depending on which option you choose, you can add extra stems to your order, choose different colour combinations, and order personalised ribbon to go with the order. I was given the opportunity to order some flowers up to the value of £26, and asked to give feedback on the service and the website. Here's how the experience went:



The Website - My main feedback on the website is the colour scheme and the way it's organised. I found pale menu options against a pale background. The text only turned green when I hovered over it so it was quite hard to read. I would have liked to have seen an easy option for displaying all their products as I wasn't sure where to click. Perhaps more search options and better titles would make for an easier shopping experience as well - such as names of plants and mixed bouquets rather than just colours.

Ordering - This was a quick and easy process once I selected what I wanted to order. Free postage was included, and the Paypal option was also very useful. My only thing here is I forgot to fill in one part of the form, and it didn't highlight it so I spent a few minutes looking for what I'd not filled in.



My Flowers - I ordered on 27/10/2015 and they arrived on the 31st, the earliest date they had given for delivery. They came in a big box, that did get a little squashed in transit - with flowers inside, there was nothing solid to keep the shape in the corners. Inside the flowers were wrapped in cardboard, this was a little loose, but a good thickness (the box needed to be as thick).

The flower stems were wrapped in a moist water bag, and mostly survived the journey, though I did have to throw away 1 broken stem. I was happy with the quality of the flowers and greenery and enjoy arranging them in a vase. They did look a little droopy when they came out the box, but seemed to perk up when they had been fed and watered and arranged.  In all they lasted a good 7 days all bright and fresh, and then started to go, just one stem at first but a few days after that they were binned. If I'm honest I wasn't sure what to expect in terms of freshness, but my flowers were in line with what I'd expect so I was pleased with the experience.



The only other thing I'd add is I like the fact this business have a story, and they buy direct from flower growers - I'd like to see more of this (with pics) on the website. It's good to know where the products come from and I think iFlowergift.com could be selling this more on their website.

If you're looking for some blooms this Winter, why not try out ordering online for yourself. Check out iFlowergift.com for
