Girard at Large and Jacques Flower Shop are teaming up to brighten your holidays! We’re giving away three floral arrangements valued at up to $100 just in time for Christmas!
UPDATE: Our sponsor, Aspen Insurance Agency, has offered $150 to boost our give away efforts! Therefore, we will add three more $50 floral arrangements, for a total of six! It will all still work as noted below, so be sure to submit your intentions and vote for those you believe are also worthy! Our thanks to Aspen!
In a comment below this post, tell us who you would give the arrangement to and why. (Yes, it can be for yourself!)
Then, encourage your family and friends to “like” your post. The top three posts will get to choose from any arrangement offered on this page!
As there are multiple prizes, all visitors to this site may vote for any and all of those they feel are worthy!
The winner may choose an arrangement of up to $100.
First Runner Up may choose an arrangement of up to $75.
Second Runner Up may choose an arrangement of up to $50.
Winners may choose arrangements that are above the prize value awarded. They’ll just need to pay the difference between the value of the award and the total amount of the arrangement they’d like.
The contest will close at 12:01 on December 23rd to provide ample opportunity for the winners to come to Jacques and obtain their arrangement before Christmas.
The procedure to enter is simple: Post a comment below about who you’d like to give the arrangement to and why. To “like” an entry, just click the “up arrow” in the section below the comment. We’ll tally it all up as announced above. And, if you feel strongly enough to post a comment in support of another’s entry, we’ll take that and the likes it generates into account, too.
Help us spread the joy of the season and its giving spirit, please share this with your family and friends!
I’d give the arrangement to my sister who is hosting Christmas this year. She never asks for anything and is always giving of herself. Aside from volunteering at United Way she also had been foster mother to a young boy for over a year and many other children before him. She has a big heart!
Hi, Melissa! You’ve captured the sixth and final prize! Thank you for submitting!
Thanks so much! Whom do we contact to order/pick up?
Hi, Melissa…sorry I missed this post and thought I’d tagged you on Facebook with the public announcement, but ooops…Your flowers are at Jacques. You can stop by there at 712 Mast Road in Pinardville and pick them up. Their phone number is 625-5155.
I would give them to Jenn & AJ Hebert founders of Roca Kidz Club Manchester and send them from the kids of Roca. They work tirelessly to make Roca go each week serving over 100 kids each as well as encouraging the many volunteers that also help. They never ask for anything but work so hard to make Thursday evenings so much brighter for each child. Flowers would be a great surprise to show them how much they are appreciated
Hi, Jillyan! You’ve placed fifth in our contest! Thank you for submitting!
I would like to give an arrangement to my wife Debbie. Debbie is a teacher in the Hooksett School District where I am a, you might say “flamboyant”, school board member. We both have jobs to do, while keeping our marriage strong at the same time. She loves her job of teaching. She most admires those in life who start off with a tougher deck of cards than the rest of us…..special needs children. She adores them with all her heart, and they return that same warmth to her, their teacher. Besides juggling her job, her quiet husband, a fifteen year old (who we know like all teenagers is very easy to get along with in the home) she shows compassion to everyone around her including the elderly, the sick and the forgotten. These reasons, plus so many others, are the reasons I love my wife and would love to win a floral arrangement for her from Jacques.
Congratulations, John! You’ve placed second in our contest! Thank you for submitting!
its to bad you werent in iowa my mother is in her last stages of life this will be her last christmas with us would be a nice christmas gift well any way Gods bless you all and have a MERRY CHRISTMAS
My Mom passed away in 2010 and she was a registered nurse and a giver her entire life. In memory of my Mom, I would like to send your Mom an arrangement for Christmas, as you don’t seem to have many votes, and the biggest gift you can give your Mom at this time of her life is your presence and your time. Even if her mind wanders, she knows you are with her. Please send an email with the name and address of your Mom to email@example.com Merry Christmas – John
Deb, feel free to “rally your troops” in support of your cause here. Florists deliver all around the world and we can make sure mom gets the arrangement if you win, Mr. Lyscars’ generous offer notwithstanding.
Hi, Deb! You’ve won a $25 gift certificate to Jacques Flower Shop. Thanks for submitting! (Might not work if you’re also in Iowa!)
I would love to win so I could give the flowers to a very deserving friend who was there for me when everyone else turned their back. She is very kind and giving. She volunteers for everything to do with kids and always has a smile on her beautiful face! Please choose me so I can surprise this very special and deserving person. <3

Hi, Kelli! You’ve won a $25 gift certificate to Jacques Flower Shop. Thanks for submitting!
As pastors of a local church in Manchester my wife and I put on a ham and turkey dinner with all the fixings to our church as a Christmas present. These flowers would make a great center piece on a table.
Hi, Bob! You’ve won a $25 gift certificate to Jacques Flower Shop. Thanks for submitting!
Thank you Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! My wife loves your show on the radio….
I would like to win in order I show my appreciation to my oldest step-son’s girlfriend. She is just wonderful. Sharon has been there during my step-son’s most difficult few years of his life. She is truly a wonderful person.
Hi, Ilene! You’ve won a $25 gift certificate to Jacques Flower Shop. Thanks for submitting!
Rich, I am in shock. THANK YOU SO MUCH! Please advise how we may meet in order I thank you personally. (and to pick up gift certificate)
Hi, Ilene. The gift certificate is at Jacques’ front counter. You can always pop up to our Super Secret Broadcast Location above the flower shop and say “hi” if we’re in when you come to get the gift certificate.
I picked up the gift certificate today, Saturday (unable to get it sooner). I am sorry I missed you, but again, a great big Thank You!!
Sorry I missed you, too. Hope what you get with the gift certificate is enjoyed!
I would give the flowers to my mom. One year ago my step dad passed away. For many years he was sick and she stood by his side and cared for him. He was unable to drive, or prepare is own meals, torwards the end even changing and using the bathroom was a team effort. She never complained or showed fatigue. I watched two selfless people never give up! He would always call on us to surprise her with flowers and gifts and she fufilling his every last wish; his toes touching the ocean, a trip to Mount Washington, and even his last dinner…ice cream sundaes. I want to show her that I strive to have love like she showed all those yeara and that I noticed her humility and kindness….I want her to know even though he maybe gone now his love remains forever.
Congratulations, John! You’re the top vote getter and have won first prize! Thank you for submitting!
Thanks Rich, I would like to thank you and your sponsors for this gift .
I would give the flowers to my mom who is the most selfless person I know. She works hard as a para at our community school and would do anything for anyone of those children. You could ask any parent of any of the children she has worked with and they would tell you she’s wonderful! She helps with my Type 1 diabetic daughter and cares for my step dad who although mobile has many health issues. Christmas is her favorite holiday and she’s a giver. I would love to win these to make her smile.
Hi, Angela! You’ve won a $25 gift certificate to Jacques Flower Shop. Thanks for submitting!
I would give this arrangement to my family. Christmas is about time spent with family, this would make a great addition.
Hi, Jen! You’ve won a $25 gift certificate to Jacques Flower Shop. Thanks for submitting!
Woohoo, this is terrific, thank you very much. My family will enjoy them very much!!
I would give the arrangement to my eldest daughter (and her husband), who just purchased their first home in Goffstown and will be hosting their first Christmas and Open House on Christmas Day.
Congratulations, Jim! You’ve placed fourth in our contest! Thank you for submitting!
I would give the flowers to my lovely wife Mimi who is perhaps the most selfless person I know. This is the second marriage for both of us and with each of us having three children of our own, she quickly became a mother to all three of mine and sacrificed for all six of our children. Now with our youngest in college, I know that none of the things that they accomplished could have been done as well without her. Through a rough couple of emotional years with our youngest, she was my rock and my daughter’s savior. I can never thank her enough but hopefully something like this can help me thank her.
Hi, Bob! You’ve won a $25 gift certificate to Jacques Flower Shop. Thanks for submitting! Best to Mimi!
Thanks Rich. Hope you enjoy the holidays. Best to your family as well!
I would love for my wife to receive one of these floral arrangements for Christmas. She has been under enormous stress this year having to take care of our autistic son. He has been undergoing some changes in his young adult life and is requiring extra care. It has forced her to leave the job she loves as a para educator in order to focus on our family. It has obviously hit us financialy and created more stress on top of caring for our son. She has had many sleepless nights and worrisome days making sure that he is getting the attention he needs. I am so proud of her and appreciate all she does for my family. This would really brighten her spirits at a time most needed. Thank you so much Girard at Large for the opportunity to bring joy to others! Merry Christmas!!
Hi, Brian! You’ve won a $25 gift certificate to Jacques Flower Shop. Thanks for submitting!
For the past 6 months my aging mother has been recovering at a nursing home after multiple health problems. She has been surrounded by a wonderful group of nurses, LNAs, OT and PT specialists and others. Many of these people will be spending their Christmas Eve and Christmas Day away from their families. I would love to share a beautiful floral arrangement with them to help brighten their holiday as they work hard to care for others including my very special mother.
