Combine flowers and plants with useful items from other departments in your store to make great gifts for all occasions.

These creative designs are perfect examples of how to incorporate items from the other departments in your store into quick and easy gift ideas. Try these baby-focused arrangements, or create ideas of your own to fit whatever holiday or occasion your customers request. Each of these designs would be great for customers looking to send flowers to a new mother still in the hospital or for baby shower attendees who want to present something that’s as much for the parent-to-be as the child-on-the-way since they incorporate baby necessities with fresh flowers in creative and attractive ways.
