Share Summer Smiles With a $50 1800FLOWERS.COM Gift Card

by Erica

This summer, 1-800-FLOWERS.COM is on a mission to spread smiles across the nation. With “Summer of Smiles,” they are encouraging everyone to brighten someone’s day with thoughtful gifts and flowers.

Here are few of the sunny and smile-inducing bouquets that 1-800-FLOWERS.COM has available this summer:

It’s Your Sunny Day™ Bouquet

There is nothing like a little sunshine to spread some cheer. I just love the smiling sun that is included in the bouquet and can be used as a decoration long after the flowers are gone. This bouquet definitely lets the sunshine in.

Fields of Europe™ for Summer

This brilliant blend of lilies, roses, snapdragons and poms is inspired by the rolling hills of Provence, Tuscany, and Holland.

Martha Stewart Sweet Pink Rose and Ivy

The delicate pink rose signifies elegance and grace, while the ivy is a sign of friendship and a strong relationship.

We would like to help one of you spread some summer smiles. We have one $50.00 1-800-FLOWERS.COM gift card to give away. Just leave a comment below and let us know who you would choose to send a bouquet to. This giveaway ends on Friday, August 27th. We will announce our winner on Saturday, August 28th.

1-800-FLOWERS.COM is also running a Summer of Smiles sweepstakes. If you know someone who needs a smile, you can share their story, and they could win a Happy Day Bouquet™. You have until August 29th to enter.

For posting this giveaway, 1-800-FLOWERS.COM provided us with one It’s Your Sunny Day™ Bouquet delivery. They are also providing a $50.00 gift card as prizing.

My mom. After working for a company for 6 years they had to unfortunately close. I would love to send her something just to cheer her up. :) She has been out of a job since the end of July and needs a little something to let her know we love her. :D

My oldest daughter LOVES flowers and right now she is only days away from becoming a bride. She would never expect to receive flowers before the wedding and it would make her stressful (but fun) days even more delightful.

I would send these to my husband at work.


4 Kelly Massman August 20, 2010 at 11:29 am

My friend who’s been nursing her husband for 6 years as he waited for a liver transplant only to find that a previously undetected cancer has spread throughout his body and he will be dead within a year. She is a brave, dedicated, loving woman who deserves a bit of grateful acknowledgement for her unending labors of love.

Hmmm . . .could I send two smaller ones to my two pregnant cousins?
