Need a Great February Birthday Gift?

You can never go wrong sending flowers to someone on their birthday. Gazing at beautiful flowers will create sweet birthday memories to hold close to heart. Especially if your recipient works at a desk job. There’s nothing better than having your beautiful birthday gift greet you with it’s vibrant colors every morning when you walk into your office. It’s like celebrating a birthday week instead of just a birthday~!

For a February birthday, flowers are especially sweet. If they didn’t receive any on Valentine’s (*sadface*) or even if they did, it will remind them spring is right around the corner! With all of the cold weather we’ve had this winter, this is a much-needed reminder.

So how do you send flowers for a February birthday? Purple Purple Purple!

Well, normally you can choose the monthly flower, but February’s official flower is the violet, which is more of a garden flower than a cut flower used by florists. Violets are still beautiful and make a great gift that lasts. Call your local florist and see if they have these available.

Roses are red, violets are the birth month flower of February. Pretty in pink and purple hues for the most part, violets are commonly used in more than just corny poetry. Violets, usually African Violets, have gained widespread popularity in flower shops also. People love the deep purple color of African Violets. When combined with complementary colors and flowers, violets can make all the difference in a beautiful flower arrangement.

Birth month flowers are interesting because they provide an opportunity to give a unique gift. Birthday bouquets with sweet card messages are already can’t-miss gift ideas but throw a little spice into the mix and it’s an even better gift! Card messages can be cute, funny, sweet, or cheesy but the it’s the thought that counts. When gifting a friend or loved one with a February birthday, opt for a fresh bouquet that uses violets or an African Violet houseplant. It’s such a fresh idea that it’s sure to go over well.
