Buying a gift for someone, no matter the holiday or occasion, can be overwhelming, especially if they’re hard to shop for. There’s so much to take into consideration when shopping for the right present, whether it’s for a spouse, child, co-worker, or friend from college. (Don’t get us started on what to get the mailman.) Your brain goes into overdrive and all kinds of questions start to creep into your head: What are their interests? What activities are they still involved in? What size do they wear these days? Will the gift get to them in time? How much should I spend? What if they don’t like it? AAAAAAHHHH!!!!

Remember: Gifting should be fun. And it actually benefits you, too.

But if you’re a nervous Nellie when it comes to buying gifts, take a seat, and a deep breath, and maybe have a sip of wine to calm the nerves. We at the 1-800-FLOWERS.COM, Inc. family of brands have made it very easy to choose the right present with our fail-safe scientifically proven gifting matrix. Simply figure out where your recipient falls among our four categories and then choose. You can’t go wrong with any of these gifts. If it makes you feel any better, this matrix has been tested by the world’s foremost experts in gift giving (that’s us, remember?), and the brainiacs at NASA have even used it to decide which gift basket to send to astronauts preflight that says “Good luck in space!”

Lastly, with the ability to pick a date for when you want your gift to arrive, you don’t even have to think about buying wrapping paper and spending a ton of time standing in line at the post office. How about that?!

Now, go on.

Go, that’s it. Keep scrolling.

You’re almost there.

That’s it.

Happy gifting!
