This June 8, show up to lunch (or dinner, or drinks) with something special in hand for your nearest, dearest friend. Peoples Flowers loves the spirit of National Best Friend’s Day, which devotes itself to celebrating those singular people who come into our lives and feel as if they’ve always been there. We can’t imagine not sharing our best days as well as our worst with our best friends, the ones who make us laugh harder than anybody else, the ones who show up for us no matter what’s going on in our lives.
With July coming to a close there are still a few days left to celebrate two special days – Father-in-Law Day and International Friendship Day. Both of these fall on July 30th and celebrate those special people in your life that are there to listen, support, and encourage. Now is the time to celebrate them and let them know just how much you appreciate them in your life.
We’ve put together a short list of gift ideas for both special days. Here is just a taste of what we offer so you’ll want to come visit our Albuquerque flower shops or shop online.
