Stationery, Pens, and Stamps

If you have a family member or friend in a nursing home or assisted living facility, consider giving them the gift of beautiful stationery, pens, and stamps for Senior Citizens Day. There’s a good chance your loved one likes to receive and write letters to friends and relatives. Consider stopping by an office supply store to find the perfect stationery for them. If your grandmother has always loved dogs, consider finding a pad of paper that features cute puppies on it. Your elderly loved one will love seeing adorable puppy faces every time they write a letter, and they’ll think of you each time they write something down. Make sure to pick up a packet of stamps too, so your loved one doesn’t have to worry about paying for postage.

An Arrangement of Roses

Sometimes the best gift to give a loved on is a beautiful arrangement of roses. If you’re looking for flowers that will last longer than two weeks, consider picking up some flowers from Venus Et Fleur. Our Eternity Large Custom Arrangement is a favorite among our customers and features forty-two fresh and decorative roses. This pre-arranged flower box offers classic colors including light yellow, pink, purple, baby blue, and violet, for an array of colors you’re sure to love. For more traditional roses, consider ordering our Le Clair Vint-Cinq floral arrangement. This limited edition collection of luxury acrylic home decor and storage products features our stunning Eternity Roses™. Choose between lilac, baby blue, aqua, yellow, black, gold, or rose gold today!

A Calendar with Important Dates

As we age, our memory tends to decline. If you have an elderly friend or loved one who suffers from memory-loss or dementia, a calendar is a great gift to give them for Senior Citizens Day. Oftentimes, senior citizens tend to forget about upcoming family birthdays, anniversaries, and holidays, and giving the gift of a calendar is a great way to keep those things at the forefront of their mind. If there are important dates you wish to add to the calendar, such as your family’s birthdays, go ahead and pencil them in.

A Sleep Sound Machine

As you may already know, quality sleep plays a vital role in maintaining optimal health and well-being. Unfortunately for many senior citizens, sleeping soundly can be a challenge, especially if they suffer from insomnia. One great gift idea that can help your loved one or friend deal with sleeping issues is a sleep sound machine. These unique machines offer an array of calming sounds to help people fall asleep faster and block out noisy distractions. At Venus Et Fleur, we’re proud to offer floral arrangements that perfectly capture the essence and aesthetic beauty of fresh flowers. Browse our website online or contact us today!
