Default Sending gifts.

Hi all
So in the UK it’s easy because I know the right places, Moonpig, M and S and others.
My daughter is studying in Spain and has a big exam on Monday, with results due on Friday. Does anyone know how I can send choccies or flowers or wine as a congrats?
I sent the good luck card via moonpig but they won’t send gifts overseas and anyway I’d rather use a local company for lots of reasons.

Where in Spain? Wine should be no problem since there are online wine stores and I use Grau online Buy Wine, Liqueurs and Spirits | Buy Online at GrauOnline.com and you can view the site in English. I use it because I like a Particular sherry which, apart from going to the Bodega (which is 400km away) is difficult to find in shops/supermarkets.

Interflora operate in Spain the same as they do in the UK. She's in Huesca isn't she? Check this out.

Chocolates aren't a big thing here - probably because they melt!

Hi,
She’s in Huesca.
Do you know anything about minimum orders? I was planning on a celebration bottle rather than doing a wine order. Although I’m sure I know what she would prefer!

This is not what you have asked for, but it might interest you (or others,)anyway. This is a UK firm that donates 25% of certain orders to Cancer Research or Barnardos. They send to Spain

Click on flowers and then charity. They also send gifts like chocolates
