When most people think about sending flowers, the first thing they think of is sending roses to a loved one or a romantic partner. But you should send flowers for a variety of reasons, not just as a representation of romance.

Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and there’s no better chance to show your gratitude and appreciation for the people who have an impact in your life. Flowers are a great way to say “thank you” this time of year. Choose from all kinds of different floral arrangements from Teleflora to easily and eloquently show an individual or group that you appreciate them as Turkey Day approaches.

Here are a few ideas for people to send flowers to this year:

Apart from you and your family, teachers spend more time with your kids than anyone else. Show your appreciation for all of their hard work in helping your children grow up. If you feel uncomfortable sending a bouquet of roses to your child’s educator, look into some other flower options. Teleflora’s Sweet Azalea Delight is a great option and would look lovely in any teacher’s classroom. You can have an arrangement sent to your house and send it to school with your child.

There’s one person in the world you know will take care of your animal companion if there’s ever a problem. Take the time this year to show your veterinarian just how much you trust him or her with your pet. Try Teleflora’s Garden Glow or Maple Leaf Bouquet to thank your vet for keeping your furry friend healthy and happy.

Don’t forget about the doctor that takes care of you! Your doctor is always there for you when you aren’t feeling your best, so you should say “thank you” as the holidays approach. Any floral arrangement would look great in the reception area of a doctor’s office. Consider sending Teleflora’s Full of Laughter arrangement or Fiery Lily and Rose bouquet.

This is the time of year your neighbors will start dropping off holiday cookies or gift baskets to show that they appreciate having such friendly neighbors. This year, join in the festivities by sending them flowers from Teleflora. Use our Sugar Maples arrangement or Autumn Expression bouquet to show them you’re happy to have them as neighbors as well.

Social or volunteer group
If you’re part of a social club or volunteer group, show the members of the group your appreciation. You should pick flowers that are a little less romantic in scenarios like these because you’re sending them to a group, not an individual. Go with something like Teleflora’s Fall Blush Bouquet or Fall Fantasia to send the right message this Thanksgiving. With any luck, you’ll see the flowers you send proudly displayed next time you show up for a meeting or event.

Non-profit organization or charity
Even if you don’t work directly with a non-profit organization, sending flowers is a great way to show that you believe in what it stands for. Look into Teleflora’s Warm Fall Wishes or Country Artisan Bouquet to add a little bit of color and beauty to these groups’ offices.

One of the easiest way to score points with your in-laws can be by thanking them for being a part of your life over the holidays. A simple-but-elegant way of doing so is to send flowers. If you’re headed to their place for Thanksgiving dinner, bring along or send a Thanksgiving Centerpiece such as one of Teleflora’s Classic Cornucopias or our Thanksgiving Garden Centerpiece to contribute to the festivities, and show them how much you appreciate having them and their child (your spouse!) in your life.
