critical hipster approves of red envelope
February 4, 2004 06:13 PM

I ordered my mom flowers from Red Envelope, a posh gift-shipping site that someone from my old tech company introduced me to a long time ago.

And I have to say, I'm really impressed. First, they were the only place I could find that would deliver daffodils at this time of year (strange, given that I wanted those specific flowers in the first place because they're the ones I used to buy her in bunches for her birthday from the flower shop up the street from my parents' old house). Then, they delivered them almost instantly and in perfect condition. They're as pretty as the picture on the website (and that pretty much never happens with anything else you send).

Rarely do I want to send a "traditional" gift like flowers or something sterling silver and engraved, but I would definitely use this site again next time. Cause when it's your mom, it has to be perfect. Hey, that should be their slogan!
