    1. Shelly says

      I make candy most every year and my step son loves my Needhams, he lives in California & we live in Maine, I’ve packed some up and sent them at Christmas to remind him of home… He loves it and they are made with much Love, your flowers are absolutely gorgeous and they give you such a great feeling, not just when receved, but every time you walk past them,he has sent me flowers at times and it really makes your heart shine, Flowers are the best medicine for anything and whether they are an “I Love you ” or an “im sorry” they just work!!! GREAT idea to brighten your house and bring love, color’s, & wonder to your house for the holiday… We have a big party Christmas Eve every year and I can tell you an arrangement like yours would bring joy to everyone & there wouldn’t be one person who wouldn’t mention them from 4 years old to 74 years old! Thanks for the chance!

  8. flagler2 says

    Last Christmas my son was stationed overseas in S. Korea with the U.S. Army. I sent a Christmas care package with all his favorites cookies and goodies that I bake every year. This year he is stationed in Kentucky and we will be spending Christmas in Nashville with him!

  9. Luanne Lawler says

    I love this opportunity to win flowers. I love receiving flowers almost as much as giving them. But to those I can’t see on holidays, I always try and send fresh flowers to let them know we are with them in spirit, and it shows that we care and went a little special to help enjoy the holidays.

  10. L KRAMER says

    we skype with family that can’t join us

  11. Teresa Laney says

    Every year I send a Christmas center piece to my mother-in-law from my three kids. She lives 840 miles away, so we don’t get to spend Christmas together, but she looks forward to the tradition of receiving the Christmas center piece each year to remind her that we love her and are thinking of her.

  12. Elizabeth Brewer says

    This is a special way to celebrate Christmas. Several years ago, my dear friend had just lost her mother and the holidays were coming. “Merry Christmas” seemed cruel and harsh that year so I ordered her a Teleflora bouquet. Across 2000 miles she got my message and through tears of loneliness shed tears of joy. Flowers said what I could not say with words!

  13. Alveda Sizemore says

    I have always sent a care package to family or friends I could not spend the holidays with. Some baked cookies always seemed to hit the spot.

    Flowers have a way of brightening up our hearts and lives. Simple jestures of love. You have wonderful arrangements for all occasions.

  19. Jea Smith says

    Sending flowers is the best way to brighten someone’s day. Our friend’s mom was down in the dumps and we sent her a lovely bouquet, no reason just thinking of her. So glad we did as she has now passed away. It made her smile for a long time.

  20. elizabeth n says

    I bake cookies & also write a heartfelt card to loved ones I can’t be with for the holidays.

    If I know that I will not be able to travel for the holidays to visit my family or close friends, I always send them a gift basket of fruit, chocolate, etc or a Christmas Centerpiece for their table with a handwritten card expressing how much I love and miss them.

  24. Margaret Smith says

    Most of my family live out of state in So. Carolina. I live in NJ. Since we don’t get to see each other during the Holidays, I usually send a photo book of my family, especially my kids. I also usually send some homemade treats for everyone to enjoy. Though we can’t be with them physically, we do call and talk to our family mostly every day.

  25. Debbie DeRoy says

    Just an absolutely lovely centerpiece. Would look good in my dining room.

  26. Telon says

    When I am unable to spend the holiday with someone I love I am sure to Skype them that day to send good cheer and I make sure I send them a gift.

  27. Paul Miller says

    My family is pretty spread out — and there have been times due to illness or bad weather when we couldn’t get together over the years. But luckily Teleflora has come through with last minute gift ideas and delivery in time for Christmas. For that I am thankful. Happy holidays to all!

  28. Alisa says

    I can’t wait for holidays with flowers when we can’t be there for dinners and gifts we always make our presence known by a vase of flowers

  30. evans s says

  31. Denise says

    We always send a floral arrangement to my husbands aunt in Va. when we can’t get to visit her. She lost her husband 5 years ago and my husband lost his mother 10 years ago.

  39. Dana says

    The flowers look amazing!

  40. Sharon R. says

    I’ve sent flowers and cards and little gifts to my sister and to my mom. They live long distance so that way they know I’m thinking of them and it brightens their day.

  41. emma says

    I’ve done two things..first time is stick a large picture of those people to their “would be” chair at the dinner table. The second thing was to surprise my mom by downloading skype to her laptop and have my brother “sit with us” at the dinner table.

  42. Betty Brownng says

    I don’t try to out-do anyone and I buy clearance things all year long. I’m always more than half-done with my gift list before the holidays hit.

  43. Felicia Young says

    I love the christmas flower arrangements!

  47. Carol Buchman says

    One year while a patient in the hospital in another state, I couldn’t make it home for Christmas. I did have my laptop with me so I checked online & found our local florists number. I called & arranged for my mom to receive a delivery of a beautiful floral centerpiece and sent a cookie basket for my dad. Every year I either bring or have flowers delivered to my mom and always make cookies for my dad so even though I couldn’t be there in person, I was still able to have the family traditional gifts delivered.

  52. Gloria Adkins says

    I think this is a great thing that you are doing. We don’t always get to be with the ones we love at Christmas or other special occasions, but we still miss them so much. Send a card, calling a loved one or sending a beautiful flower arrangement will always put a smile on their face, and teleflora has some very beautiful Christmas flower arrangement.

  66. roz rubinoff says

    Flowers have always had a special place in my heart so when there has been an occasion when I have not been able to attend (usual because of distance) I immediately order a beautiful bouquet of flowers. Last year, I was unable to visit my brother and his family who had recently relocated from east to west coast, it only made sense to have an arrangement with my sister in laws favourite seasonal flowers accompanied with a loving note.

  67. Barbara Bowen says

    We have been fortunate that our families live close and we have the opportunity to spend time together. It wasn’t always like this. Many times I’ve wanted to have a little extra time in my day or evening to spend with a friend or relative. I’ve always made sure to call, make some cookies or just stop for a few minutes and bring a small gift or an orchid to brighten their day. With the advancement of the internet and ordering online, I am able to order flowers and have them delivered, arranged and fresh so quickly. Thanks for the opportunity to win these gift cards. Merry Christmas to all of you and your staff. (Now, I’m off to order more flowers for a friend).

  68. Sara Truax says

    This would be great to win! My 97 yr old Mother would love to get a bouquet of beautiful flowers.

  77. Melinda Berlin says

    When my younger brother & sister were little, my mom was a single parent. She sent me a picture of them sitting next to a branch of a tree that looked like a Charlie Brown tree. I made more than my Mom while I lived in California by 19 than she did supporting two kids in Illinois. I sent home Christmas presents that year including the first Nintendo, clothes for my sister and $ for my Mom. I did that several years in a row. My sister has never forgotten it. Two years ago, I took her & her two kids to Club Med in Punta Cana for a week and when my brother’s marriage was in trouble, I put up the retainer for the attorney until he could repay me and stayed in touch with him everyday because he was very depressed.

  78. Nellie Johnson says

    I would love to give flowers to my sister. She always act like my mother. She is very humble.

  79. Carla Jean Kooij says

    I love sending Teleflora flowers to my mom usually. She is about 1 1/2 hours from me. Sometimes I buy them and put them in the guestroom at our house when she comes to stay for a week (like this Christmas), but I also sent her some for her birthday in November too, although I saw her. She is 91 years old and still doing very well and I just want her to know how much I love and appreciate her.

Digital picture frames are easy for people to use who are not efficient on the computer or electronic devices and smartphones. That describes a large population of seniors! She is truly touched by this and I know we have made her day! She loves the flowers and is overjoyed with the pictures!

  148. Suzanne S. says

    Living apart from my sons and their families is difficult, especially during the holidays when it doesn’t work out for us to all be together. This past Halloween, I sent each family a package of new wool hiking socks, stuffed with Land of Lakes hot cocoa packets. It was fun to receive pictures on my cell phone from each family (parents and kids grouped up on the couch) wearing their new socks, with steamy cups of hot cocoa.

  149. Teresa Esther Chapoy says

    My sons live in another state and they are so busy! When babies are born I always send 2 Dozen roses until I can get there. I’m visually impaired so travel is difficult. Same with holidays until I can get there I send flowers!

  150. Rachel C. says

    In the past when I was unable to be with loved ones for the holidays I have sent a gift box of homemade goodies from me (holiday cookies, candy, hand mixed cocoa or soup mixes) with homemade cards and some type of homemade gift. The gifts were things like handmade Christmas tree decorations for their tree or hand sewn Christmas stockings stuffed with fun and silly treats for them.

      We alternate years between visiting my side of the family and my husband’s. This year we visit mine for Christmas so we visited his for Thanksgiving this assures that we get to spend some time with everyone which is important. If I’m not at my parents for Christmas I make sure to send them something special like a gift, flowers or a Christmas treat. I also FaceTime them and send lots of pictures of the kids. I do the same for my mother in law it means a lot to her because ours are her only grandkids.

  151. Ang says

  152. deana dietrich says

    We are a military family & have been away for 8 years. So I would send my parents flowers (along with gifts). We are finally home for good to actually be with family this year. My Mom will still get flowers but flowers will go on my Dads grave. We lost him this year.

    When my son was sent off to war unexpectedly at a very young age, I set off to uplift these brave individuals by making a difference in their lives, their family lives and their local and worldwide recognition. Started small with getting neighborhood active in getting care packages ready for them; then town…towns active in donations of all kinds; got with military Moms and put Christmas picture ornaments up of our loved ones’ far away military faces on a large Christmas tree at the local zoo with families (including the kids); then penned several poems from the heart that went viral. . one lyrical poem featured first page along with dedication on an old world gold velum anthology by a publisher out of the poetry capital of the world…London, England!,,,this particular poem honors all our brave worldwide. Went to battle a local university and got all tuition/board fees dropped for those that were called up by the military (previously, the university was billing them, even though they had no choice to go to war); was instrumental in getting all the soldiers that came home from the war that year my son came home to being declared ‘Citizens of the Year’ in their local town….along with local businesses and homeowners’ marquees welcoming many of them home by name!

  162. Iris says

    When every time when I cant spend Christmas with my parents in Colombia what I have done is telling them to come online and thru a PC they are part of our Christmas Celebration . We all have a blast talking and seeing each other. It is not the same as being with them in person but a video call online can make them happy

  163. SUSAN DEFREITAS says

    I reminisce about going all out when my young son was called up to duty in the military and wasn’t even allowed to take mid-terms at his university for it was the largest call-up of the Guard. I started locally organizing neighbors, then businesses, military moms, military events to aid all those brave. Care packages (small and large) were on the move; heavy donations pouring in; the military assisting in getting perishable food items shipped to our loved ones on time before items going stale; presents/cards sent for holidays/special occasions; phone cards sent to allow them to call home; movement evolved to get them from outside awful conditions….tents to trailers…with carpeting, supplies, health items, etc., cards/presents full of well wishes from zillions were off; local town made them ‘Citizens of the Year’ upon their return with worthy plaques and promos; businesses/homeowner associations welcomed them home ….sometimes personally with giant marquees; I wrote poems, one lyrical poem celebrates our brave worldwide and honors them….featured by a renown publisher from the poetry capital of the world ‘England’ on page 1 of and old world gold velum poetry anthology.

    In addition to mailing something (card of a present) ahead of time, I called on the holiday. There’s nothing like a personal conversation. I always sent pictures of my kids to my parents.

    Nine years ago, Jane came into my life when she joined my quilting group. She never had a daughter…..she has 2 sons and one of them died unexpectedly last year. That has changed her life. We have become close and she’s my “mother”. Your beautiful bouquet would make this special lady know just how much she is loved.

I usually mail them out on 15th so it is received b/4 Christmas. Doing this makes me feel like when they are enjoying their treats, a little of me is there with them. That is a blessing for me.
