Founded in the 1970’s, Grandparents’ Day was started by a woman named Marian McQuade from West Virginia who wanted a national holiday dedicated to grandparents across the world. In 1990, Age Concern brought the holiday to the UK and it has been growing steadily ever since.

Whether it’s helping us with homework or looking after us at the weekends, our grandparents do so much for us. And with 72% believing that being a grandparent that it is the single most important job that they have, it’s time to show them just how much we appreciate them on Grandparents’ Day on Sunday 7th October.

Interflora have a wonderful range of thoughtful, personal gifts to choose from including stunning bouquets and arrangements to personalised baked treats and delicious hampers stocked with sweet and savoury delights. You can also keep up to date with the latest Grandparents’ Day news and competitions by visiting the Interflora blog.

You can also visit the Interflora Facebook page between 3rd September and 10th October for a chance to win your grandparents a beautiful floral gift basket. The flower experts are giving away a prize every day in the run up to Grandparents’ Day and will be giving you the opportunity to share your funny grandparent stories with the world and make a public declaration of thanks.

With beautiful flowers in Kingston delivered by Interflora, you can celebrate Grandparents’ Day from anywhere in the UK.
