rachel-armendariz-making-cookies-with-her-sonWhat is your title and what do you do at 1-800-Flowers?
My title is Gifts Inventory Planner. I’ve been with 1800flowers.com for 13 years. What I like best about my job is seeing the products go live and knowing I had a hand in bringing them to market.

Our Christmas motto is to “celebrate Christmas with a smile!” What about Christmas makes you smile?
I love to see the excitement of my children when they know it’s time to open presents!

What is your favorite Christmas tradition to make for a truly traditional holiday?
On Christmas Eve, no matter where we are, I make cookies with the kids that they decorate. They are supposed to be for Santa, but somehow there is never anything left for him!

rachel-armendariz-christmas-ny-giants1800Flowers is all about holiday decorations. Tell us about your Christmas decorations.
I get my decorations up right after Thanksgiving, because I love to see the house all dressed up. I have a treasure trove of ornaments that I’ve collected over the years. I have all kinds, from handmade to personalized ones. Each one of us has a personalized stocking with our names on it, too.

Tell us your favorite Christmas story from Christmas pasts.
One of my favorite Christmas memories was the year I was pregnant with my son. I spent Christmas Eve with my in-laws, who took the time to fill a stocking for my unborn son. Then, on Christmas Day, my side of the family did the same thing! He was one very lucky boy.

What is your favorite Christmas gift to receive?

I’m always touched when I receive a gift personalized for me! It lets me know that the person who gave it to me was really thinking about getting me something special.

As far as 1800flowers Christmas gifts are concerned, I absolutely love the Candy Cane Lilies. They are so unique and different, and they are only available this time of the year. They always make my table look so festive.
