grandparent's day: the ultimate gift guide

Because your Nanny and Papa deserve to be treated! 

Grandparent's Day is just over a week away now (3rd October)! As they always spoil us - no trip their house is ever complete unless you leave full to the brim with food, right? - now it's their turn to be treated! Let them know how much you've appreciated their love and advice over the years with our huge range of plant and flower gifts. We've put together some of our favourites below which are sure to put a smile on their face!

This thoughtful arrangement is the perfect gift to let your grandparents know how much you love them! This serene bunch of white blooms is made with 32 stems, including Agapanthus, Freesias, Roses and Iris. Simply gorgeous! 

So you've got the gift sorted, now what? Time is so precious when it comes to your grandparents, so make sure you find a few hours to spend some quality time with them - even if that's just popping round for a natter and a cuppa!

Here's three ideas to spend the day:

  1. Afternoon tea - Tea and cake will always be a winning combination. Treat your grandparents to an afternoon out enjoying the best sweet treats on offer. And if mobility or traveling is an issue, don't worry, bring the afternoon tea to them. Many cafes offer an afternoon tea in a box so they needn't miss out!
  2. Public gardens - Of course, we love nature and the great outdoors, and we know your grandparents will too. Take them for a leisurely stroll around your local green space or public garden to admire all the scenery. This is a great chance to have a long old heart-to-heart, too.
  3. Walk down memory lane - This is literal, of course, but there's something so heart-warming about going through old family photo albums that bring up good memories. Not only another good option if your grandparents have limited mobility, but a great activity that will leave you all feeling warm and fuzzy inside. 

Happy Grandparent's Day however you're celebrating!
