Excellent service for an out-of town order. – I needed to order birthday flowers for my girlfriend from out-of-state. After searching around a few websites, I stumbled upon Gifford's, and I liked the different look of their bouquets.
Not sure of exactly what I wanted, I called the 800 number, and the first person I reached was very knowledgeable about their various designs. She listened to what I was trying to do and was able to suggest a design for me. She also helped to customize the flower colors and gave me ideas about presentation.
The flowers were delivered to my girlfriend's office early in the workday and completely wowed her. The non-standard red-black roses, leaf-wrapped bouquet, and unusual vase made the flowers stand out, and made her very happy.
I am definitely going to use them again.
Worth the Wait! – I read a not -so-positive review using Gifford's Flowers for wedding flowers. I had the opposite experience planning my wedding. Laura was a pleasure to work with.... She was knowledgeable and was up-to-date on the latest wedding trends. They seemed very busy... but I always felt my wedding was a priority. My wedding flowers exceeded all my expectations... thanks to Laura and Gifford's.
Bad service for a wedding!!! – I had been talking with Laura a few times through e-mail about my ideas on flowers. It thought she was very helpful, so I was really excited for my actual appointment. When I came to the appointment, Laura didn't have any examples of her work to show me and she wasn't helpful at all! At the end of the appointment she had jotted notes down on a notepad, and said she would look over it and give me an estimate in a few days. IT HAS BEEN OVER A MONTH AND I STILL HAVEN'T HEARD FROM HER! Needless to say, I didn't get my flowers from them. If I were you, I wouldn't either!
Over priced, Small arrangement, Horrible customer service – Was in Kansas and ordered an arrangement through FTD to be sent to my husband in Portland for our anniversary. I requested a wildflower arrangement and was charged $68. The arrangement my husband received consisted of 2 sunflowers, a couple small yellow flowers and a few long purple flowers. I was very embarrased when he showed me what he received. His comment was... "I hope you didn't pay much for this." When Giffords was contacted, they said the arrangement was sufficient for what was requested and there would be no compensation. I would NEVER recommend this florist!!
High Quality Flowers Accompanied with Superb Customer Service? Yes, Please! – I walked into this classic looking florist, adequately hidden beneath a group of shady trees. Inside, I was greeted by two very friendly associates, one of whom helped me find exactly what I was looking for. I was looking for a ?Hawaiian? looking flower that I could wear in my hair.
Not only was I shown their beautiful and high quality array of fresh Hawaiian flowers, but the gal that helped me even helped me choose the perfect flower bulb to wear in my hair. Then, she took it upon herself to take my flower to the back and wire-wrap accordingly so that it could be pinned in my hair. While she was doing this, the other gal who worked there gave me a little tour of the store and showed me what flowers were in season! Then they sprayed my flower, wrapped it in a cute little box, and told me how to care for it so that I could wear it the next day.
Not bad for only $5!!! :]]
Great place for wedding flowers – I got my wedding flowers at Gifford's, and I couldn't have been happier with the service. I didn't really have a specific preference for colors or varieties, but Laura came up with something beautiful that I loved. It was very tropical looking, which fit nicely with the theme of my wedding. The delivery came on time, everything was fresh, I was delighted with the whole shebang. The price was pretty reasonable, too.
Flower delivery was wonderful! – Gifford's really took care of my order. Bill made sure that my order was not only beautiful but took extra steps to ensure that the delivery was flawless. I had suggested that they could leave the bouquet on the doorstep. He wrote back immediately saying it was too hot for that and that they would make sure to arrange the delivery for the same time the recipient was home. He was GREAT! THANK YOU!
Love this shop! – I high recommend Gifford's. The people are friendly, it has a great selection of flowers and the prices are great. I just moved here from Chicago and enjoy walking by the shop on Broadway everyday and seeing all the flowers. I have ordered off their web site several times and have been thrilled by the flowers and service. Portland is a great city and Gifford's is definately a plus.
Disappointed – I was searching for a wedding florist, so I came in for a consultation, and did not like the way they did business. Instead of giving me an estimate right there, they spent only 15 minutes on the consultation and told me that they would figure out the cost and email it to me later... well, it has been a week now and I still have not received an estimate. I would've preferred to know right away. This shows unprofessionalism to me because other florists do not do that. I didn't get the feeling that they wanted my business because it was a quick consultation and they didn't really try to find out what I liked. Needless to say, first impression was not great and I won't go to this florist for my wedding flowers.
Wow! What a fabulous store. – Everytime I enter Gifford's I am amazed by their selection of flowers. Also the girls that work there are friendly and helpful and the arrangements surpass anything I've seen out there. My favorite florist !
