Giving flowers and chocolates is a great way to express your love to someone

Buying stuff online is not new to me because it’s more convenient. Imagine… I can buy things that I need from the comfort of my home and then have them delivered to the destination of my choice.

Recently, I saw from my FB Wall Feed about Island Rose, got curious and decided to try it out.

According to their website,  “islandrose.net is an internet-based ordering system that allows you to order flowers straight from the farm to a destination of your choice. This gives you the advantage of ordering the freshest stock at the most reasonable prices!”

Cool! No need to go to the flower shop to buy flowers during occasions. No need to commute and beat the rush and traffic just to buy several stems of flower. Less stress, less hassle and you can save time and energy.

I bought flowers for a special Tita who’s heading the community I am affiliated with, and like any other e-commerce website, purchasing at islandrose.net is as easy as 1-2-3.

For those of you who are curious about how to put your order, the steps are simple:

1. Go to http://ph.islandrose.net and create an account

What I like most about Island Rose is that the flower choices have the following:

  • Full Description of the flower and what it symbolizes – I chose 3 stems salmon pink roses because pink roses mean admiration, grace and sweetness. The 3 stems of salmon pink roses convey messages of adoration and delight to an individual who pose such grace and elegance.
  • Shipping Details – Indicated here is that they deliver nationwide, seven days a week. They also have a same day delivery which is available for Metro Manila Only provided that you placed the order before 10AM. Delivery starts at 11Am onwards.
  • Packaging – The packaging procedures are explained well with full description and picture.

After placing my order, Island Rose sent me an email for the order confirmation and another email informing me that my order was in process.

At the day of the delivery, I received an email indicating that my order was shipped out via DHL.

  • The price is reasonable
  • Lots of item to choose from – aside from flowers, I can also buy other items from their gift shop which includes sweets, stuffed toys, jewelry and accessories
  • The items were delivered on time
