CONTEST ENDED 02/10/2010 – Winner: Tanyetta McKoy

Love is in the air. That’s because Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. To commemorate this holiday, one lucky reader will receive a $50 gift certificate from 1-800-FLOWERS.COM.

1-800-FLOWERS.COM has partnered with Patti Stranger, the Millionaire Matchmaker. The result of their collaboration is the “Patti Stanger Bouquet,” a hand-designed arrangement of Fresh roses, Gerbera daisies, lilies, lisianthus, daisy poms, waxflower and sala.

A loved one and I received a couple of these bouquets from 1-800-FLOWERS.COM to review.

I was impressed by the speed of delivery and the quality of the flowers. I’ve often been disappointed when I’ve ordered flowers online because they always arrived looking wilted and withered. I must admit that I was a bit surprised when I received this bouquet and the flowers were fresh and beautifully arranged in a glass vase.

The “Patti Stanger Bouquet” would make a great Valentine’s Day gift for that special someone in your life (btw: dads like flowers too). Bouquet pricing starts at $49.99, but you can win one here on Mocha Dad.

I’m giving away a $50 gift certificate redeemable at 1-800-FLOWERS.COM. To enter the contest, leave a comment describing what you find romantic.

In addition to the contest, you can receive 15% off full priced items until February 14th by using the promotion code: Patti15.

1-800-FLOWERS.COM is also offering free shipping or no service charge for a limited time when you send your loved one fresh beautiful roses starting at $29.99. Visit 1-800-FLOWERS.COM/RADIO for more details.
