What are nice flowers to send for retirement?
They deserve the most special, meaningful, and joyous bouquets available. Luckily, that’s exactly what we at FTD specialize in. If you’re not sure what flowers are the best for recent retirees, here are some of our favorites for the occasion:
Bright, blossoming sunflowers, which communicate excitement and new beginnings
Beautiful roses, a symbol of fondness and passion
Gardenias, which are sweet and lively
Lilies, for an elegant choice
Orchids, for the luxurious and discerning retiree
Mixed bouquets, sure to liven up their living space
Once you’ve picked the perfect retirement bouquet, it’s time to think about the rest of your delivery. Adding on a gift is a thoughtful way to put the cherry on top of such a huge accomplishment! If you’d like to make the bouquet special, ask friends, family members, and neighbors if they have some suggestions. Maybe they like daffodils, hydrangeas, azaleas, sunflowers, lilies, orchids, or daisies—there are so many to choose from. If you can’t find out what they like, know that you have a huge array of options to choose from.
What are some retirement gift ideas?
One of the best things you can get someone for their retirement is a gift that shows you were thinking of them, that you care, and that you are there to support them on this next step in their life. A gift basket could be perfect. Send one filled with delicious cheese, charcuterie items, fruit, and chocolate. Who doesn’t love sweet and savory treats? Or send a spa gift basket brimming with luxury soaps, body lotions, loofahs, and exquisite oils. This is perfect for a retiree who loves to pamper themselves. Now they have more time to do it!
With FTD’s gift baskets for him and gift baskets for her, you can feel confident knowing you are purchasing a basket that is packed full of thoughtful, delicious, and perfectly curated items. Plus, our gift baskets make the perfect choice when it comes to adding something on to an already beautiful FTD floral delivery.
What flowers symbolize retirement?
Orchids represent strength and resilience, making them a great choice when honoring someone who has worked hard during their career. Calla lilies are a wonderful option because they represent new beginnings and come in a beautiful range of colors depending on the time of year they’re picked. Finally, sunflowers represent good fortune and long life, perfect for the retiree entering an exciting new phase of their life.
Should you choose retirement bouquets or retirement plants?
With FTD, the benefit of sending a bouquet is that they’re a perfect gift to send for someone to enjoy at the moment. Plus, they are easy to care for. If you send a gorgeous plant, it will last long into the future. You can send ones that are easy to care for, like snake plants. But if the recipient has a green thumb and loves gardening, gift them a bonsai tree! Or, indoor plants like the Peace Lily or a philodendron are perfect for people without outdoor space. They can still experience the joy that comes from nurturing a plant. Send gorgeous blooms like a white rose bush that can be transferred outside and allowed to bloom in nature.
Retirement Bouquets & Arrangements
When it comes to picking the perfect flowers for a retirement bouquet or an arrangement, you want to really think about the individual and what flowers they will appreciate the most. Will it be one of our stunning sunflower bouquets, a blooming plant, one of our mixed bouquets, red carnations, blue hydrangeas, or maybe one of our classic rose bouquets?
