What Are Traditional Birthday Gifts? What can I send instead of flowers for birthday?
There are many gifts you can send to wish someone a happy birthday instead of flowers. Birthday Gift Baskets are always a great choice because there is such a wide variety to choose from so you can tailor your gift to match the persons hobbies or tastes.
For example, if your gift recipient is a chocolate lover you can send them a birthday gift basket filled with all kinds of delicious chocolates like dark chocolate, milk chocolate, chocolate covered strawberries and even a snack or junk food gift basket filled with nothing but popular candy bars that everyone loves like snickers, recess peanut butter cups, almond joy and other treats they are sure to love. There are also many different types of gift baskets such as a gourmet gift basket for example. This type of gift basket is filled with a variety of gourmet foods and snacks such as a nice summer sausage with cheese & crackers and maybe even a nice bottle of red or white wine.
If your birthday recipient is health conscious than how about sending them a healthy fruit basket filled with delicious crisp red or green apples, grapes, peaches, bananas, and even some exotic fruits like mangos, kiwi or even a fresh pineapple when it is in season.
Birthday Cookies are also a nice gift. Fill a gift basket with a variety of cookies such as Oatmeal, Peanut Butter, Shortbread and even Biscotti! You can also send a Cookie Gift Tower too. Cookie gift towers are a nice gift because all the cookies are in beautiful keepsake boxes that stack up to form a gift tower that is very impressive plus they can reuse the boxes to hold all kinds of different things so it really is a gift that keeps on giving. Birthday cookies can be delivered the same day when you order online as well, so if you forgot someone's birthday or need to send it fast, sending cookies for a birthday is a great birthday idea. There are also Personalized Birthday Cookies too. Remember, you can send birthday cookies the same day.
