DETROIT, Sept. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- FlowerDeliveryExpress.com a leading online flower delivery company, has a variety of gifts available for Grandparents Day on Sunday, September 8, 2013.  Today there are over 65 million grandparents in the United States.  The average age of becoming a grandparent is 48, according to AARP's 2002 Grandparent Study.  If you consider 18 to be the beginning of adulthood, the average person will live 30 years as an adult before becoming a grandparent.  Since the average life span of an American is 78 years, the average person is also likely to be a grandparent for 30 years.

About 15% of grandparents care for grandchildren while parents work.  This figure, from the AARP report, includes grandparents who are eager to provide child care and those who help out mainly because of the expense of conventional day care.  Some grandparents are the sole child care providers; in other cases, they are part of a network of child care options.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau one out of every ten American children live with a grandparent.  This figure includes both grandchildren being raised by grandparents and multi-generational households (those with grandparents, parents and children).  Most of these households include at least two grandchildren, and many include more.

Let FlowerDeliveryExpress.com help you express your appreciation for all the support and love that a special grandparent provides to you or to your children.  FlowerDeliveryExpress.com has items available to accommodate every budget.  In addition to their floral offerings, they also have a wide variety of items including cookies, chocolates and specialty gift baskets.
