The first Sunday after Labor Day is National Grandparents Day. This year, send or deliver flowers to your grandparents to let them know how much you love them.
If your grandparent lives in a retirement village or nursing home, pick up a hand-selected bouquet or arrangement from Belle Fiori’s Milwaukee area shop and take all generations of the family to visit with them. Or, if your grandma and grandpa are long distance, select a hand-arranged bouquet from our friends at Teleflora and their special Grandparents Day arrangement will be delivered right to their door.
Grandparents play so many roles within the family dynamic, including family historian/living ancestor, the nurturer, the mentor, the role model, the playmate, the wizard, and the hero. Maybe they serve as the babysitter, the chauffeur, the confidante, or the caregiver. The stereotype of an aged, ailing, bald or grey-haired, retired, denture wearing grandparent is out of step with reality. Many grandparents are in their forties, fifties and sixties and still in the workforce and leading active lives. Many offer financial and emotional support for their children and act as a surrogate parent. Whatever their age and role in your life, there’s bound to be something that’s just right for your Grandparents Day gift. Whether it’s a traditional bouquet of roses, or something kind of colorful and jazzy, you’re sure to find something that will be a perfect fit for your grandparents.
Did you inherit a green thumb from your grandparents? Maybe they’d appreciate a Grandparents Day gift like a plant or a basket of beautiful African Violets. Of course, grandparents always love anything that will always remind them of you, so you might want to opt for colorful flowers that arrive in a keepsake vase or reusable mug.
