Birthday flowers to send as a present for birthdays

Birthday Flowers are always appreciated. Even if you are giving someone a gift for their birthday, giving them flowers makes them feel even more special. It is very difficult to choose the best birthday flowers for people. Their character, your relationship and your budget all have to be taken into consideration. Hopefully we can give you a few tips on selecting the best birthday flowers.

Birthday flowers

Birthday flowers for Ladies
Women love flowers and nothing says "I love you" better than flowers on their birthday. Choosing the right flowers can say a lot about how you feel about them.

For the traditional lady's birthday, a classic floral bouquet is the perfect gift. For the more adventurous lady's birthday, send a bouquet of exotic blooms. For the lady's birthday who has a good sense of humour and is prone to being impulsive, send an unconventional bouquet, like a hardy bunch of bright, robust sunflowers or a playful flower and stuffed animal combination. For the lady's birthday who likes attention, send a floral arrangement with a vase and balloon, so it is clear to everyone that it is her birthday. Or send a plant and fruit basket combination to share with friends. However, if the lady is the opposite and likes the quieter life, for her birthday, send the quiet beauty of an orchid or the earthy richness of a planted garden. In fact, orchids are flowers which symbolise beauty and refinement, and are also a versatile flower that last a long time, and so they are ideal for birthdays.

Birthday flowers for Men
Men love flowers and giving them birthday flowers will certainly make them feel special. Depending on his personality you could opt for elegant, delicate flowers or go for solid, vivid colours. For the practical man's birthday, send flowers with a gift that he can enjoy when the flowers have gone. Or you could send a plant which needs minimal care and is long-lasting for his birthday.

For the birthdays of children in your life, choose a floral arrangement with a gift they can enjoy after the flowers have wilted, such as a fancy mug, or a cuddly toy, and always remember the birthday balloon.
