Send a Gift During National Smile Week

It's easy to get wrapped up in the stress and worry of life, including what's been amplified this year between health concerns, online school, work stress and more. However, we also have to stop and think about everything we do have, especially those around us that continue to support us and provide positive messages. We can also do the same for those we know who might be battling their own stresses. There is no better time to reach out than this second week of August. That's because it's officially National Smile Week. There is still time to bring the smiles to those around us. You can call or message others and send along a funny or sweet message. Share pictures or make plans to get together in-person or virtually.  There are also many types of special gifts you could surprise them with, including flowers. That's because flowers have so many messages and emotions within their appearance. They are also something that people don't often buy themselves but are thrilled to receive as a gift. Plus, flowers are easy to deliver when you can't see each other in-person. We want to help! Our Finger Lakes flower shops and our website make it easy to select a special bouquet, flower arrangement, plant or garden selection that you can get through curbside pickup or deliver through our contactless process. Our customers love our collection called Dazzling Dancers that offer many hand-wrapped bouquets along with an adorable stuffed animal. Don't forget that our floral design team can also put a custom bouquet together for you! Of course, we also have other special gifts in our Finger Lakes florist locations that can add a smile, including balloons, greeting cards, and locally curated items.

Your favorite Finger Lakes florist is here to help with numerous gift ideas along with easy ordering and a choice of curbside pickup or local no-contact delivery. Here's what we've got for you: Meaningful Flowers All flowers and colors contain special ways to express certain emotions. For example, red roses signify love while pink represent affection. You might focus on these hues when selecting flowers for family members. Or, you can put together a custom arrangement with the help of our floral designers that represents the colors and flower varieties that you know your family member loves. Plants and Green Gifts Maybe your family member loves gardening or prefers plants over flowers. It's okay because we have you covered. Our plant collection includes green plants, blooming plants, exotic plants like orchids, succulents, dish and basket gardens, and more.
