Make no mistake, FTD.com has a great selection of gifts, but there are several problems. First, they generally cater to only the upper class, meaning about 80% of us cannot afford their gifts, and that leads to the second problem and that is of display when searching their site. They have three tiers to their pricing: good, better, and best. The problem is they show a picture of the best gift, but display the price of the good, which is very deceptive. Often what you see pictured is more than twice what is advertised and I find that highly annoying, so much so that I aborted my buying plans from them for Christmas and Valentine's Day.

Second, they never seem to be adequately stocked on popular items, leaving you the exact choices left that you DON'T want; e.g., they'll have the GOOD item and the BEST item, but not the middle BETTER item which offers more product than the GOOD item, but for less money than the BEST line.

Third, they are charging sales tax, and I resent that more than anything, because the whole purpose of the Internet is to avoid sales tax and save money so you can buy more stuff. Then you have to add shipping plus the tax to the cost of the item, making one visit very expensive, indeed.

Of course, if you have all the money in the world it's no problem and you can buy what you want.

Like I said, the quality is there, but the mismatched pricing and out-of-stock are deal breakers.
