wine basket for grandparent's day giftGrandparents Day is the Sunday after Labor Day
Have you made arrangements for a Grandparent's Day Gift? If you haven't already sent a gift now is the time to decide how you will honor your grandparents for their special day. I know that sometimes it seems there is an over abundance of holidays but trust me your grandparents appreciate when they are remembered. So even if you do not send a gift or a card, remember to give them a call or visit on Grandparent's Day.

Last Minute Gift Ideas for Grandparents' Day
You can always send your grandmother or grandfather a gift basket. Most companies such as can arrange to have gifts delivered up until the last minute before a holiday. At we even offer a complete selection of same day gifts which can be delivered on the same day you place your order. Of course the sooner you place your order the better. Last minute gift choices include wine gifts, fruit baskets, balloon bouquets and florist arranged flowers. Both the wine and fruit gifts come with a nice selection of gourmet foods. You can also add chocolates to the balloons and balloons to the various baskets. Just keep in mind that Sundays can be problematic in terms of delivery particularly in smaller towns so please try to place your order in time for Friday or Saturday delivery.

Gifts Available for Next Day Delivery
Most of our gifts are available for immediate shipping for next day delivery (using expedited shipping methods) including our flowers delivered direct from the grower. These flower bouquets provide great value. You receive significantly more flowers for the price and the arrangements normally last much longer than florist arranged flowers. This is because they are cut just before being shipped to the final recipient. If you prefer a more lasting gift than fresh flowers, consider our gold roses which come in a variety of styles and colors. These "dipped roses" are real roses that are dipped in gold, silver, platinum or lacquer in order preserve them. They should ultimately become family heirlooms and keepsakes. Our complete line of gift baskets including gift collections that encompass all kinds of hobby themes can be shipped the same day you place your order. I like the fact that you can make your selection personal. For example if your grand dad likes to play golf then send him a golf gift basket. If your grandmom likes to garden send her a garden gift basket.
As you can see there are lots of choices for ways to remember your papa and granny. There is still time to place an order or send a card. What ever you decide to do for Grandparent's day just be sure to let your grandma and grandpa know how much they mean to you.
Red Gold Trimmed Rose Gold Roses - All Varieties 10 % OFF*
Enter GOLDROSE during checkout
Our Promotion Department is offering 10 % Off on our Popular Gold Roses. The sale includes all varieties including Gold Dipped Roses and Gold Trimmed Roses. Silver Roses and Platinum Roses are also on sale. The sale applies to all of the Gold Rose Bouquets including the most popular Half Dozen Gold Trimmed Forever Roses and Half Dozen Gold Roses.

Real Roses Dipped in Gold
In the case of the solid gold dipped variety, the entire rose is dipped in a vat of real liquid gold over and over again over several days. For colored roses trimmed in gold, the bloom portion of the rose is dipped in Lacquer. Then the stem is dipped in the liquid gold. It is finished off by dipping just the edges of the bloom in gold leaving a delicately trimmed gold edge. The result is that the original colors of the rose including veins are still visible. You can see the difference in the photo of the Red Gold Dipped Rose (at the top left) and the Dozen Gold Roses (below and right). The gold trimmed roses come in a variety of colors including solid colors such as the Purple Gold Rose or in two-tones such as a Yellow and Red Gold Rose.
