I am a big believer in practical gifts. They need not be boring, but I really like giving things that people will actually use and enjoy.
Sure, there are all sorts of exotic kitchen appliances that make exactly one thing that might be cool, but they take up tons of space and how often do you use them?
So - with that in mind - over the next few days, I will be sharing some fun and practical gift ideas I am featuring for several companies on TV shows this month.
Whenever we want to send flowers, I always check out Teleflora. One of the things I love about them is that I have the convenience of ordering online - but flowers are arranged and delivered by a local florist. That ensures they arrive looking fabulous and already arranged - so the recipient doesn't have to scramble to find a vase and arrange the flowers themselves (a skill that I most definitely lack).
A few of my favorites from this year's holiday collection (from left to right): the Gift Wrapped Bouquet ($59.95), the Sparkling Star Centerpiece ($69.95) and the Send-a-Hug Cardinal Bouquet ($49.95). (Photos courtesy of Teleflora).
