The friendly flourists at Fabulous Florals and Gifts transform bunches of blooms into stunning bouquets that enliven special events and comfort those in need. A rose-and-tulip bouquet marries classic red roses with the springtime charm of pink tulips, making fall foliage green with envy ($69.99). A watering can of kalanchoe makes both a polite and direct reminder for forgetful gardeners ($19.99), and the beer mug of blooms combines fresh white carnations and acrylic rocks to create a faux-foam-topped brew that makes any suds-soaked pal produce tears ($29.99). For moms, grandmas, or stylish mail carriers, Fabulous Florals and Gifts also outputs the handbag of blooms, which unites roses, carnations, and daisy poms in a stem-swaddling reusable tote ($39.99/small).
"Never, never, never give up," is the driving mantra for David Oreck, who flew combat missions with the US Army Air Forces
in World War II and returned home to build a business empire from scratch. He set out to design a machine to lighten hotel employees' load, making a lightweight vacuum cleaner as opposed to the traditional bulky, burdensome commercial cleaners. Naturally, the domestic market began clamoring for his high-powered yet easy-to-handle devices, and soon Oreck vacuums could be found in homes throughout the country.
Today, the company continues its tradition of innovation, simplifying household tasks with Steam-Glide mops for hard floors, HEPA-filter upright vacuums, and stain-killing cleaning products. Oreck's commitment to clean sends it headlong into the future, with high-tech air filters that react to their environment with automatic sensory controls, filtering odors, allergens, and curse words.
