When you want to spoil somebody special for their birthday in October, it’s good to put some extra time and thought into your gift selection. Fresh flowers always make a great gift for all occasions. However, if you want your bouquet to stand out, you need to be a bit more specific with your flower choices.
The birthstones associated with the month of October are the Opal and Tourmaline. Tourmalines can be found in just about every colour as do opals. You can use these colours as your inspiration when choosing the colours of your flowers. If you really want to splash out, you could pair your pretty flowers with an appropriate piece of jewellery.
The flower associated with this month is the Calendula. The bright colours of these flowers make them particularly suitable for this time of year. Remember, you need not send a bunch of Calendulas but rather include a few Calendulas in your birthday bunch.
If you cannot find a suitable Calendula bouquet, there is another option. Simply take a moment to think about the recipient. Think about their preferences in terms of colours and flowers. Everyone has at least one favourite type of flower and a favourite colour too. The best option of all is to send their favourite flowers in their favourite colour.
Your florist will most likely also offer additional optional gifts that can be delivered along with the fresh bouquet. Some popular options include luxury chocolates, a cuddly bear, and even a birthday cake! Take a look at these extra gifts and choose one or more that you know will please the recipient.
