In addition to providing access to the company’s selection of products, the Avas Flowers website includes instructions on the care of floral arrangements as well as a blog where the company posts articles on gift ideas, how-to's, and related subjects. The Avas Flowers website contains features that allow online shoppers to easily navigate its pages. For example, shoppers may search directly for a type of arrangement, gift basket, plant, or other items that they seek. They can also browse the website by brand, season, holiday, or occasion.
