Is it appropriate to send a gift instead of flowers?

Yes.  Flowers are the traditional method of acknowledging sympathy and a nice arrangement is a lovely gift.  Acknowledgements has chosen to depart from this tradition due to feedback from family, friends and customers who have told us a lasting sympathy gift extends the message of caring.  Flowers die and for many bereaved people, the day they have to throw the flowers out is another day of extreme sadness.  That simple act can impart feelings of loneliness and sorrow and compound grief.  All of Acknowledgements gifts have items that last and nurture the bereaved through their grief process.  The keepsake gift box is often used to store cherished mementos of the deceased and the books are read and reread.  A sympathy gift with a gardening theme honors the bereaved and the deceased throughout the seasons.
