Remember Grandma & Grandpa with Flowers on National Grandparents Day 9/7/14

National Grandparents Day will soon be here, brunch times will be booked solid, and kids will be cheering for a chance to spend some quality time with their older relatives. Parents, to help your children show how much they are truly thankful for their grandparents, help them send flowers for the September holiday. 

You always want to send your grandparents a gift that is thoughtful or somehow reminds one of the gift giver. Have your children think about what characteristics describe themselves best, such as their favorite color, personality traits or favorite activities. All of these can be found in plants. Each bouquet and plant has different traits that can mirror a personality. So send a bouquet that will remind the grandparents of their grandchildren each time they water it.  

Identifying the flower personality

Parents, if your child happens to be bright, cheery and full of beaming happiness, choose a bouquet that incorporates sunflowers. A great option is the Teleflora Grand Sunshine Bouquet. This arrangement is full of color that just calls for attention. This stunning bouquet is sure to make grandparents sit up and think of their affectionate little grandchild.

If your child happens to exude peace, harmony and walks with a graceful flow in each step, consider sending the Teleflora Zen Artistry bouquet. This bouquet is not only relaxing to look at, but it requires little maintenance. This gift should be from a grandchild who wants fully to take their grandparent’s happiness into his or her flower choice. Best of all, grandma is sure to adore the beautiful orchids.

For the grandchild who inherited a love of cars and trucks from his classic auto collecting grandfather, send Teleflora’s ’48 Ford Pickup bouquet. This little blue truck looks a near replica, and it is cool enough to please any grandpa. Not only do the flowers look beautiful in the trunk, but the truck can be reused for a multitude of things after the bouquet has gone. 

The little girls who prefer to wear matching outfits of red patent shoes, red jumpers and red bow clips are sure to love the Teleflora Lovely Ladybug bouquet. Your daughter will want to send this bouquet to her grandparent to show how cleverly she coordinated her flowers with the vase. For a personal touch, have your little girl write a small poem about ladybugs to send in the card.

Be sure that all of the children weigh in on what the card has to say. This day is all about the grandkids’ love for their grandparents, so let their voices be heard.

The 5 Easiest Gifts for Her

The 5 Easiest Gifts for Her

Whether it’s her birthday, your anniversary or just a regular Thursday night, you can show her how much you care without breaking the bank. The best rule of thumb for gift-giving is to choose something that speaks to her and comes from the heart. If you’re looking for some inspiration, check out the five ideas below:

1. Flowers: a timeless gift

Flowers can instantly brighten a room and bring a smile to her face. If you know her favorite flower or color, choose a beautiful bouquet that will bring her cheer
?s=t&srccode=SC_NB every time she looks at it. If she has classic style, opt for an arrangement of roses tied with a bow. You can also offer her something bolder, like a beautiful bouquet of lilies that symbolize her energy and vibrancy. You can always surprise her with something totally new and fresh that speaks to her adventurous spirit with a display of bright gerberas, roses and lilies that are beautiful and feminine, like her.

2. Photos: a personal touch

Photos are always a great gift idea because you can present them so many different ways. Find a photo of the two of you and insert it into a special frame, or have it printed onto virtually anything, from a thermos for her coffee to a case to protect her smart phone. Every time she looks at the gift, she will think of you and your special gesture. You can even find a series of pictures – of a vacation you took or a few of her favorite places – and have coasters created for her coffee table.

3. Adventure: try something new

Has she been dying to try skydiving, wine tasting or a paint class? Why not give her the gift of an experience she won’t forget? If you want to leave scheduling up to her, offer her an IOU for the activity, and if you’re feeling adventurous too, join her! You two can enjoy a great bonding experience, and surely get a few great pictures to remember the day!

4. Pampering: a thoughtful gesture

Who could pass up a day of pampering? She won’t be able to resist a massage, manicure or pedicure. Show how much you appreciate all she does by offering her a day to get off her feet and enjoy all the attention focused on her. You can even suggest driving her to and from the salon so she can really feel like a queen for the day.

5. Quality time: always in style

The best and easiest gift you can offer her is the gift of your time. Let her choose the date or activity and then just spend some time enjoying the pleasure of being around each other. Take a walk together, grab a coffee or cook a meal as a team. No matter how you spend your time, she’ll appreciate the gesture.
