Great plant - weird ordering system

Hi there,
I ordered this plant for my friend Noelene as a gift. I do a lot of online shopping and could not work out how to make this a gift for her. I processed the order and at no time was I asked to write a card etc and then the receipt came back to me with her name on it. I sent an email to your customer service advising that she wouldnt know who it was from and was assured via email that there would be a note attached saying it was from me. There wasnt and she had no idea who it was from until I called her a few days later. Im sure plenty of people order these as gifts - but your website doesnt seem to be set up to acknowledge this. Ordering system would have to be a one star sorry....
