It might be too late to wow your significant other with a beautiful arrangement from Jake’s Flowers and Gift Baskets on Valentine’s Day, but their gift baskets are sure to wow on any day out of the year.
Owner Ginny Ossanna said Jake’s specializes in fresh flower arrangements and gift baskets for all occasions. Gift baskets come prefabricated or customers can customize their basket with the wide array of novelty items available. She said the professional staff is dedicated to making flower the shopping experience a pleasant one.
“Customer service is our pride, we make sure they are happy with their purchase,” Ossanna said. “That is why we always go the extra mile to make your floral gift perfect.”
Flowers are brought in fresh two to three times a week and are guaranteed fresh when they arrive to their recipient, Ossanna said.
“We have a no hassle policy when it comes to the freshness of the flowers,” Ossanna said.
Arrangements can be finished, depending on traffic, within an hour and a half and can be delivered anywhere in the Laguna Madre area. Jake’s can also handle flower arrangements for weddings on the Island or Port Isabel.
Items such as night lights, silk arrangements and colorful wall decorations are also available at Jake’s if needed for home or office décor.
The best selection of greeting cards is found at Jake’s Flowers and Gift Baskets for kids to adults. Ossanna said a card for any occasion is available.
A wire service is available to order arrangements or baskets online or a phone order can be placed. Jake’s hours are Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. They are located 2500 Padre Boulevard on South Padre Island.
