Most popular occasions to send flowers

Flowers are a popular gift for so many occasions. They have become such an important part of our culture that we can hardly imagine life without them. We send flowers for just about every occasion. Here are some of the top occasions that call for a flower delivery.


Wish a friend or loved one happy birthday with a bright bouquet. You can choose a beautiful mixed bouquet, an arrangement that includes their favourite type of flower or even flowers in their favourite colour. There are so may options. There are even bouquets that are inspired by their birthstone. Add a balloon, bottle of wine or another optional extra to your order and you have the complete gift with just a few clicks!


No matter how many years you have been married, every anniversary is worth celebrating. Red roses are the most popular of all romantic flowers but they are not the only option. Each year of marriage is associated with its own type of flower, colour as well as modern and traditional gifts. You can use these ideas to ensure that you give your spouse a unique and sentimental gift every year.


The festive season is a time for sharing that Christmas spirit. Let your loved ones know that you are thinking of them when you send flowers for Christmas. Some popular themes include red, white and green or even red, green and gold. Of course, during this time of year, florists really pull out all the stops so that we can impress our loved ones. A flower delivery is perfect for this occasion since you can place your order from anywhere in the world thanks to online florists.

Valentine's Day

As one of the most romantic days of the year, it's no wonder couples around the world love Valentine's Day. Fresh flowers, chocolates, cuddly stuffed animals and champagne are just some of the staples for this occasion. Red roses are a popular choice as well as other types of red flowers. Of course you can also send flowers of different colours or choose a bouquet in your Valentine's favourite colour instead. It's all about letting them know how much you love them.

Mother's Day

There is nothing like a mother's love and she really deserves plenty of appreciation for all of her sacrifices over the years. You can send flowers to your mother on this day, spoil the mother of your children and even pamper your grandmother. Pastel colours are usually the most popular and pink is a top choice. Carnations are often included in these bouquets but they may also include other flowers like roses and lilies.

Father's Day

While you might not think about sending flowers for Father's Day, there are some great ways of letting him know that you care. If you are not sure about a fresh flower bouquet, you could opt for a plant instead. Have the florist include a bottle of wine or some luxury chocolates if he has a sweet tooth. No matter his preferences, you can be sure that he will be very happy with his Father's Day gift.


Not all occasions are happy when it comes to flower deliveries. When somebody passes away, it is considered customary to send flowers to the family. It's a way of letting them know that you care and that you are there to offer your support. Usually the florist will deliver the bouquet on your behalf since you do not want to impose.

New Baby

New baby flowers are usually more for the parents than the baby. The little one will not remember these first few days or even the first couple of years of their life which means that you are pampering the parents. It's also a lovely token of your joy and support.

Remember, you don't have to wait for a special occasion to send flowers. When you want to spoil somebody just because, you can send an affordable bouquet with a little note included. These unexpected gifts are often the most memorable of all.
