May is a big month for women; we’ve got Mother’s Day, National Nurses Day and National Teachers Day all in the first couple of weeks. Since these last two reflect fields mostly dominated by women, we can safely say that this is really a time to appreciate and honor the strongest women in our lives. Peoples Flower Shops thinks these super ladies should be feted and thanked all year long, but this is definitely the moment to make your gratitude concrete. We’ve come up with two ideal gifts for the women who educate, nurture, protect and otherwise empower the rest of us.
Our Holiday Gift Guide – basically our online version of Santa’s workshop – is chock full of everything from bold blooms to winter greens. We’ve got plants and wreaths and centerpieces; we’ve even provided our elegant silk flower work, a nod to the luxe textures and fabrics of the season.
But we at People’s Flower Shops want to highlight something that is just as colorful, abundant and gift-worthy as our floral designs and winter bloomers – and you can eat it, too. We’r’e talking about our collection of holiday gift baskets, and you’re going to want to take a look (and a bite) at of them.
College students around the country are returning to campus this month, settling into dorm rooms and facing a new year of challenges. Although they may be out from under your roof, you can still make sure that they know how much you care for them, with delicious college care packages from Peoples Flowers.
Every student is different – but no matter what type of food your student prefers, we have the perfect gourmet gift basket for them. If they are still local to the Albuquerque area, the Survival Kit collection may be just the right choice. Cookies, candy, crackers, and caffeine join forces to give students the energy boost they need, all in easy to carry snacks sizes and delivered locally the same day. If the way to a teenager’s heart is their stomach, they are sure to love you for this!
For those whose tastes have been a bit more refined, this selection of gourmet cheeses, crackers, and fruit will be just the study aid they need. Generous enough to share with roommates, these snacks will be perfect when writing term papers or cramming for a test.
College care packages are always eagerly anticipated and appreciated. These gifts are also arranged in baskets that will serve to help organize their dorm room after the food is gone, and make great catch-alls for books, papers or supplies. Whether local here in Rio Rancho or Santa Fe – or across the miles – your student deserves the best. Browse Peoples Flowers’ selection of gift baskets or give us a call to create a customer gift with all their favorite items, and get the school year start off right!
Who knew there were so many yummy holidays or special days in July.
