Birthday Flowers: A Gift With Meaning

While flowers are a popular gift for any occasion, there's much more to buying flowers than heading to your local florist and picking up the first nice bouquet you see. Yes, she'll love it, but what if you went just that extra mile on her birthday and gave her flowers that actually have a deeper meaning?

Each month of the year has its own specific color and flower (or flowers), representing the characteristics of a person born in that month. These birthday flowers can be combined with others to make a larger bouquet, or you could give a bouquet consisting only of birth flowers, with a little card expailning their meaning. She'll be thrilled at your thoughtfulness.
