Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching and that means it’s time to start thinking about presents to send! While we often consider sending gifts, flowers or other presents to our significant other, we can often forget about the other special people in our lives. This year, think about sending thoughtful surprises to your dad, your mom, your best friend, and even your coworkers or mentor who means so much to you. Let everyone around you know that you value them in your life and that your relationship with them is meaningful. The floral designers at Robertson’s Flowers and Gifts are creating some amazing gift baskets and floral designs specifically for all the people in your life for Valentine’s Day this year.

My favorite flower enthusiast has been very good this year, so I'm asking you to bring a few things I know she'll love.
A new gardening tool set. She loves tending to her flowers, and having a fresh set of tools, gloves, gathering baskets and garden decor will give her even more to work with.
A coffee table book about flowers. When it's too cold to tend to the garden, she can curl up with a warm cup of tea and peruse the colorful pages for what she'll include in her garden next season.
Beautiful flower pots and vases. Between growing flowers from seeds to displaying her bright blooms, there is always a need for new containers.
You can also talk to the experts at Robertson's Flowers, too- they have some amazing holiday gifts for flower lovers. Read More about The Dear Santa Letter For Flower Lovers
Rather than go to the ends of the earth to find that dad in your life something special for Father's Day, look to the earth for inspiration.
Robertson's Flowers & Events acknowledges that shopping for dad is difficult, and this June 17 will likely be no exception. Though we may implore him to tell us what he wants, even needs, dads aren't very forthcoming in offering gift ideas. They tend to put themselves last and everybody else first, preferring to stay out of the limelight and to instead focus it on everyone else in the family. But fear not. This year, we've got a clever solution to the dilemma of what to give dad. Read More about An Easy Green Gift Idea For Dad
In honor of Mother's Day, Robertson's Flowers asked one of our own super moms to share her experience and insight when it comes to both floral design and raising kids.
Name: Sandy Robertson MacEachern
Kids' first names and ages: I have a daughter, Sarah (27) and a son, Jaime (22).
How did you get into floral work?
I'm part of the 4th generation at Robertson's, my family's business, so I started working on weekends as a teenager and it has just evolved from there. It's been such an amazing journey watching the company grow and evolve with the community and trends in the floral industry. Read More about A Moment With One Of Our Moms
Galentine's Day is all the reason you need to celebrate your best ladies this February 13; after all, that's what it was designed for. It sprang into being during a 2010 episode of NBC's Parks and Recreation, when main character Leslie Knope took all her girls out to lunch and proclaimed it "Galentine's . . . only the best day of the year!"
Today, women have adapted the fictional holiday to their own ends, spending time with female friends, family members and colleagues in order to show their love and affection. We here at Robertson's Flowers are here for it, and we think it should include flowers. Read More about Give Your Favorite Friends Flowers For Galentine’s Day
At Robertson's Flowers, we're well-versed in all the ways that people give flowers to each other. We've seen last-minute splurges on roses and fielded carefully customized bouquets planned weeks in advance. There are many occasions that call for flowers, and many imaginative approaches to giving them, but one of our favorites is Flowers For A Year, which is exactly what it sounds like. A fresh, seasonal bouquet delivered every month to your recipient's doorstep - a literal year filled with flowers. Read More about Vivid Blooms To Send Them All Year
Moving into a new neighborhood can be a bit overwhelming. Between unpacking boxes, getting kids settled and making sure that the internet is working, it is easy to feel a little lost.
So if you see a moving truck heading into your Philadelphia subdivision carrying a new family, be sure to greet them and ask if there is anything you can do to help. Consider bringing over a home-cooked meal, along with paper plates and utensils. You may even offer to help stack empty boxes, or run to the store for needed items. But once things settle down, sending a gift from Robertson's Flowers is an awesome way to assure them that they are welcome, and you are glad to be new neighbors.
