Whether you are looking for the perfect flower for a family member or a friend’s birthday, or simply as a random romantic gift to an important person; you need to be very meticulous in choosing which kind, color, and arrangement of flowers to give. You don’t want to send a funeral flower for a birthday or anniversary, don’t you? 🙂
In choosing the right flower shop, you can consider the three (3) important factors below.
Experience / Expertise
Look for a flower shop that already has established years of experience in the industry. Choose a shop that has proven experience and knowledge in the business, and will help you in deciding the right flowers and gifts for your needs. You can check the flower shop’s reviews or testimonials on their website, Facebook, Google, or other online channels. We all know that online reviews can be made up, so use your best judgement and instinct to spot the real ones. If you can, call or visit them in person so you can assess more and build a personal relationship with the shop or the florist.
Nowadays, you can easily find tons of ads on Facebook or other classified advertisement websites, selling flowers and all sorts of products. Some of these advertisements can be scams, or overpriced products with disappointing quality.
Look for a flower shop that is a legitimate business, registered in the trade agency (DTI) and pay their taxes (BIR). This can also serve as a protection to the consumers, and a guarantee that you will receive the products that you paid for.
Flower Selection and Price
Check if the shop has a wide variety of flower selection for all occasions, and if they offer personalization and other gift options (balloons, chocolates, etc.) to choose from. If you cannot visit the store in person, carefully check the photos on their website or social media posts for creativity, consistency, and quality. Ask them how fresh their flowers are, and get their assurance that you will be getting the best batch of flowers on the day it will be delivered.
Also, check the flowers that are within your budget and don’t forget to ask for discounts or any ongoing promotions that the shop can offer you.
