You know that person on your shopping list who already has everything? If you’re stuck on how to show them you care this holiday season, look no further than the beauty and ease of an orchid delivery. Rather than sending an overpriced bouquet that won’t last to New Years, sending your loved one an orchid gives them a gift they’ll be able to enjoy for years to come.
However, as with all holiday deliveries, it’s hard to know if you’re getting exactly what you pay for and if your gift will arrive on time. Follow these five tips to ensure your holiday orchid delivery is a success — all the way from purchase to arrival.
Tip 1: Look for a Reliable Supplier
You want your orchid to arrive looking just as good as it does on the website. To avoid being a victim of false advertising, find a reliable supplier with a good reputation. (It helps if they grow the orchids themselves, as opposed to shipping them in from another grower and serving as the middleman.)
Look on their website to see how they address freshness in shipping and investigate what their policy is if your plant arrives damaged.
Tip 2: Plan Ahead
Holiday shipping can be hectic — to say the least. To help ensure your orchid arrives on time, plan ahead as much as possible and allow a few extra days to account for the busy time. Double-check with your supplier to see if it’s possible to guarantee a specific delivery date.
Tip 3: Pay Attention to Cost
While you don’t want to overpay for holiday orchid delivery, you also want to make sure you’re purchasing a quality product. Don’t be fooled by discount online suppliers that can’t be trusted.
Tip 4: Don’t Be Afraid to Contact Customer Support
If you have questions about purchasing an orchid online or the logistics of delivery, don’t be afraid to contact them and ask! Any reputable orchid supplier should be able to put your mind at ease and help you feel more comfortable with the delivery process.
Tip 5: Give Your Recipient a Head’s Up
While you don’t want to ruin the surprise, it might be helpful to let the recipient of your orchid know that they can expect a delivery on a certain date. Even though they likely won’t need to be present to sign for the delivery, it would still be best if the orchid could be brought inside as soon as possible.
