A few flower delivery questions:

Is it easy to have flower deliveries as a surprise? It feels like I have to tell her to be home between x and y hours which kind of gives the delivery thing away.

Do delivery companies normally need her phone number?

Some Soviet era style apartments don't seem easy to navigate to me (e.g. some room doors aren't even numbered), perhaps it's easier for locals/deliverers?

What happens if she is not home to receive them?

Some flower companies say they will take a photo or snoop around as part of a checking if she is real thing. Can you choose not to have this done?

Hi Borsch

any delivery service will require a contact number to avoid wasting time on deliveries - so the surprise element is 'lost'

I now have the flowers delivered to a neighbour  - using a local firm - until I had a RU bank account - using western union

The photo thing is SO tacky and I would hope members would avoid such firms.


Normally, far cheaper and better value to use a localfirm and cut out the broker

I suggest  a stickie for members to post local flower shops doing deliveries in cities they know about.


 
Russia doesn't have form for making stuff like this up.
He really did say that

The 8th of March is tomorrow. You still have time. Contact me if your lady is in Ukraine; I can arrange flowers/gifts delivery on short notice anywhere in Ukraine for $60! Flowers (not included) are about $15.
