What to know about gifting birthday flowers
For your mother
When sending birthday flowers for your mom it’s best to send her a softer more serene bouquet to represent the caring and loving bond between the two of you. With flowers like lilies, carnations and gerberas in pink, yellow and other warm colours you can really share a kind message that she’ll adore.
For your partner
With birthday flowers for your partner, you can really go to town with making an impression on their special day. Of course, red roses are an amazing way to make a classic romantic gesture but don’t let that limit your imagination. There are plenty of other beautiful red flowers like lilies, orchids or alstroemerias which send a clear romantic message. If he or she isn’t a fan of red, don’t worry about trying a pink, white or orange selection of flowers which can also go a long way to demonstrate your love.
For your friends and relatives
With your friends choosing flowers is a bit more nuanced. Of course, choosing to send flowers to a friend on a birthday is going to depend on their taste and how close your relationship is.
