Who in your life deserves a bouquet of flowers?

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of 1-800-Flowers. All opinions are 100% mine.

I love having flowers in my home- to me there's nothing better to brighten my home and bring a smile to my face. My husband is a great gift-giver, and I always appreciate the gifts that he brings me, but the days that he brings me flowers are particularly special to me.  There's something about that simple act that reminds me of the early days of our relationship- back when everything was new and fresh (and back when we weren't tired all the time and there were no diapers in our lives...).

Myself, I like to send flowers to the women in my life, such as my mom and my grandmother. Back a few years ago I sent my mom flowers for my birthday from 1800Flowers.com.  I figure my mom is the one who did all the work when I was born, I just showed up! She loved getting the nice bouquet delivered to her office. There's something extra special about flowers coming via flower delivery!

I have to admit, I haven't sent flowers to anyone for the past several years. I'd love to get back into the habit of sending flowers though. To my mom, to thank her for all she does. And to my husband- men can get flowers too! He's having a tough time at work lately, and getting flowers would be a good way to remind him that we're thinking of him. 1800Flowers.com has so many beautiful bouquets to choose from, as well as lots of non-flower arrangements. I particularly like this cute Happy Face Cookie Gift Box.

I bet there's someone special in your life whose day would be brightened with a bouquet of flowers or a gift basket. Visit 1800Flowers.com to send something today!
