Chances are you have at least one person on your gift list who is almost impossible to buy for. Finding the perfect birthday present is getting more challenging every year, and you never know if you have chosen the right gift.
Instead of searching in vain for yet another year, consider giving a floral gift this year. You do not have to limit yourself to a vase of fresh blooms or a basket of flowers. Here are some unique ideas you can use to incorporate flowers into your gifts and turn fresh blossoms into the ultimate birthday present.
For the Crafty Type
If you have a crafty type on your gift list, you can enhance your floral present with some unique craft ideas. Stop by the craft store to pick up some supplies, then present your recipient with the gift that keeps on giving.
A simple wreath form can turn a bouquet of flowers into a beautiful keepsake. With a few supplies, you can thread those beautiful blooms into a wreath fit for any front door. A flower drying kit will help the crafty person on your gift list preserve their special memories for a lifetime.
For the Book Lover
Chances are at least one person on your birthday gift list loves to read. If so, a stack of books is the perfect present. If you know your recipient's favorite author, seek out some books they have not read yet for a wonderful gift. If you are at a loss for titles, a gift card to their favorite real-world or online bookstore is a great choice.
No matter which option you choose, a homemade floral bookmark is the perfect accompaniment to your literary gift. Just press and dry your favorite flowers to create a bookmark your friend will be proud to show off as they reread their favorite novels.
For the Great Cook
If you have a friend who loves to cook and prepare fine food, why not create a floral centerpiece worthy of a formal dining table? You can find some great centerpiece ideas at your local craft store, along with all the materials to create it from scratch.
Whether you choose the classic simplicity of a pillar candle or the practicality of a serving tray, fresh flowers make the perfect accent. Just add a vase of fresh flowers and give a gift any cook would be thrilled to receive.
For the Gardener
Flowers are a natural choice for the gardener in your life, but a little creativity will make the gift even more special. Instead of giving your favorite gardener an assortment of potted flowers, try pairing a vase of cut carnations with an assortment of carnation seed packets and a few flower pots.
Your friend can enjoy the beauty of flowers now, and the anticipation of fresh flowers later. No matter which flowers you choose, this combination gift is sure to be a big hit.
Flowers are the perfect gift for any occasion, and birthday flowers are sure to be appreciated. There are plenty of great ways to incorporate fresh blossoms into the gifts you give, and the people on your gift list are sure to appreciate your creativity and your generosity.
A floral gift may not be the first thing that comes to mind when shopping for a birthday present, but it is sure to be one of the most remembered. Whether you are celebrating the birthday of a friend, family member or coworker, the gift of flowers is always an appropriate choice. So why not stop off today and buy some great flowers for the special people in your life?
