For the millions of people who celebrate Valentine’s Day, finding the perfect gift to express romance, affection or even life-long friendship can be a challenge. Flowers, jewelry, chocolates – there are so many possibilities. FTD, however, makes it easier this year with a redesigned FTD.com website that organizes the site’s many gift options into easy-to-navigate pages called “Gift Shops.”
The new FTD Gift Shops are a showcase of gifts, preselected by FTD’s gift experts to satisfy any shopper’s Valentine’s Day needs. Gifts range from assortments of the freshest flowers hand-picked from around the world, to fine jewelry, to exquisite Baccarat ® crystal vases. Customers can also choose from charming teddy bears from Build-A-Bear Workshop ® , and gourmet premium gift baskets featuring chocolates from Godiva ® , Champagne from Dom Perignon ® , coffee from Starbucks ® and gourmet food and wine from Coppola ® .
A tab for each Gift Shop is displayed across the top of FTD.com. Clicking on the tab takes the customer directly to that Shop.
“Flowers are an integral part of Valentine’s Day, but in addition to our floral arrangements, FTD carries an incredibly large and diverse range of gift options to help celebrate the holiday,” said Rob Apatoff, president of FTD. “Our new FTD Shop tabs allow our customers to shop quickly and easily across popular gift categories and find exactly what they’re looking for.”The seven new FTD Gift Shops – five of which offer non-floral products – include:
