Hi there

who have/would you use to send someone flowers or some other present to someone in the US (specifically Kansas if that matters)?

I want to send something as well flowers and it can't be food as she can't eat and won't be able to any time soon. I am thinking some kind of body/bath stuff but does anyone have any other ideas?

I have used this site a few times to send a fruit basket to which ever hotel my husband is staying in when he travels.

Have had no problems - last time they even emailed me to let me know it was a public holiday, and they would deliver the following day.

They have a variety of things there - you might be able to find something suitable.

I send thing to my mum back in Canada quite regularily.

Google florist/gift baskets in the city they live in and check out online reviews.   Then order direct from the local company.  Usually a lot cheaper than using Interflora or big online companies who will take a cur and pass the order onto the local guy anyway.

I've sent plants, flowers, bath stuff, candles etc.   also try the big department stores like Nordstroms. Often they deliver for free and you can buy housewares etc
