5 Reasons Why Flowers Make Great Birthday Presents


Ever found yourself at a loss when getting a gift for your loved one’s birthday? While the act of gifting doesn’t have to be an extravagant display of affection, a surprise birthday gift delivery never fails to make any recipient happy. Why not give them a beautiful bouquet on their birthday?

Although some may argue that flowers are perishable gifts that wilt easily and serve no purpose after a few weeks, there is a reason why the age-old tradition of flower gifting has continued to be so popular. As passionate florists, we agree that flowers make the best birthday presents. Here are five reasons why we think so.

  1. Declaration of love and affection

Every stalk of flower delivers a message to the recipient without the need for excessive words. Be it well wishes or a declaration of affection, you can always count on flowers to convey your sincerity and true feelings. In fact, flowers are such a versatile gift that you can give someone flowers without the need for a special occasion, simply to let them know that you are on their mind. If you can’t be with your other half physically on their birthday, sending them a surprise delivery of flowers as a birthday present shows them that they occupy your thoughts even if you can’t spend time with them.

  1. It’s the thought that counts

There is a misconception that flowers are forgettable, perishable gifts that hold no meaning once they have wilted. When buying a bouquet of flowers for someone’s birthday, think of it as though you are paying for an experience rather than a mere product. A surprise delivery of flowers on anyone’s special day is bound to lift their spirits. Think of how you’ll brighten up your recipient’s birthday with a simple gesture that speaks volumes. To your recipient, it will be a fond memory for them to look back on. Oftentimes, the gesture of gifting matters more than the utility of the gift. In the first place, bouquets do not have to be extravagant or pricey for you to prove your sincerity. 

  1. Flowers make personal gifts

Not sure what to get for someone on their birthday? Why not give them a customised bouquet tailor-made according to their preferences? Regardless of gender and age, flowers will always bring smiles to someone’s face. Flower bouquets that are customised with the recipient’s preferences in mind, or perhaps their birth flowers, make the gift even more memorable and enjoyable. It shows your recipient that you have taken notice of their likes and dislikes. It is a simple gesture that says a million words regardless of the language that you speak.

  1. Flowers brighten up the atmosphere

Flowers are proven to have the ability to lift moods and regulate emotions. You can always count on a beautiful floral arrangement to add colour and fresh fragrance to any space, bringing a positive mood to everyone in the room and serving as a beautiful room centrepiece for all to admire. Your recipient is bound to light up in joy when they receive a surprise bouquet at their doorstep.

  1. A simple gift goes a long way

For the practical folks out there, you’ll be glad to know that the flowers in your birthday bouquets can be repurposed. Hang your flowers upside down to dry so that you can make some sweet-smelling potpourri, press the flowers between the pages of books as bookmarks or frame them up for all to admire! You can even make crafts with the dried petals, such as one-of-a-kind resin charm accessories. There are many ways that your recipient can get more out of their bouquet. With a wide variety of floral craft tutorials on the internet, your recipient can rest assured that their birthday bouquet will not go to waste. In fact, when they look at the dried petals or flowers, they’ll be reminded of the special moment when they were given a beautiful bouquet on their birthday.
