Best Bets Daily: Wednesday

Tree Hugger

Posted August 13, 2008
A gift of flowers is nice, but let’s face it, flowers die. Trees, on the other hand, will outlive most of us (barring unforeseen tragedies). Todd Oldham teamed up with FTD for the “Mighty Oak” program, which makes it easy to send the oak tree best suited for the area where the recipient lives. There are 60 varieties available, just enter the Zip Code and FTD will pick the appropriate tree. Each kit comes in cute packaging and with growing directions. Best of all, it's a lot cheaper than the average bouquet.
