Gifts For Your Grandparents For Grandparents Day

Posted by

This Grandparents Day is Sept. 9 — are you ready? We love our grandparents and love the idea of getting them a gift, but this holiday is so often forgotten and we end up offering a haphazard phone call as a gift. Let’s do better this year.

With this list, you’re sure to find something your parents would love to receive from your kids or that your grandparents would love. Above everything else, they might love to spend some time with you, so work in a trip to their house if you can.

As always, you can order special occasion flowers for your grandparents through Welke’s House of Roses in the Milwaukee area. Explore our floral arrangements and get started!

Customized Frame & Photo

A photo of your kids in a customized frame doesn’t take much effort on your part, but it can mean the world to your parents. Grandkids can bring some of the most joy in life, and having a reminder in their home will make them smile day after day. This gift would be even better if it were a photo of your kids and their grandparents together.

Gift Basket

Is anyone actually opposed to a gift basket of goodies showing up on their doorstep? We didn’t think so. Whether it’s a fruit basket, basket full of chocolate and coffee, or another specialty gourmet basket, Welke’s House of Roses has you covered. Floral arrangements are nice after all — and we love them — but a way to grandparents’ hearts is sometimes right through the stomach with an indulgent gift basket.

House Plants

Having plants around the home will improve air quality, offer color and character, and give your parents something to take care of each day. And when the house plants are from your children, your parents will have a sweet reminder of their grandkids’ love each time they see the plant. We even have succulents, which will require a bit less attention, or a create-your-own terrarium that your kids could make for their grandparents.

A Tool For Their Hobbies

What do your kids’ grandparents love to do? Is it cooking, gardening, reading, or golfing? Something else entirely? Get a tool that will help them enjoy their hobby more. It could be a new recipe book, a gardening apron, a new novel, or gadgets for their golf game. Get creative here, and try to spend a day doing their hobby together if possible.

Special Occasion Flowers

Does nothing else on this list feel quite right? You can’t go wrong when you order flowers online and have them delivered right to the door. It’s considerate, thoughtful, and a lovely surprise. Local flower delivery isn’t just for Mother’s Day, after all. When you send flowers, with a heartfelt note of course, your children’s grandparents — or your grandparents! — will feel loved and appreciated, which is what Grandparents Day should be all about.

Order flowers online today from Welke’s House of Roses in Milwaukee.
