|So it's that time again, when you're searching for the perfect birthday gift for a person you care about. No matter how well you know someone, it can still be a challenge to know what birthday present will suit him or her best. To make it a little easier, we've come up with some great birthday gift ideas, organized by age group.
KIDS (AND KIDS-AT-HEART)
For kids, a birthday is something to look forward to all year long. Help make the day live up to that special kid's ideas. Send the gift of a burst of color and a sense of celebration with a bunch of balloons, or give endless hugs with one of our happy birthday stuffed animals. Know a kid with a sweet tooth? Fulfill even the wildest dreams of tasty treats with a gift basket of candy, cake, cookies or delicious snacks.
|SWEET 16, 18 AND 21
For young adults, the milestone birthdays seem to come fast and furious! The days of turning 16, 18 and 21 are all meaningful emotional landmarks and also mark the welcome advent of new adult privileges, so great gift ideas for these birthdays mix sentiment and celebration. For any of these birthday occasions, flowers are the perfect gift and commemoration. And what teenager doesn't crave snacks? Select from decadent chocolates, festive birthday cakes and junk food extravaganzas.
|"THE BIG THREE-O"
Even if your special someone fully intends to remain 29 forever, a 30th birthday is something to celebrate. Make it a day to remember and a gift for the senses when you send a gourmet coffee gift basket or a selection of spa goodies. Add some celebratory color to your recipient's home or office with a beautiful arrangement of flowers that's perfect for the season.
|OVER THE HILL?
Turning 40 can be a huge milestone. It's a great time to stop and celebrate just how much your recipient means to you. Flowers are the perfect way to show your appreciation and affection, but which ones should you choose? If your recipient has a favorite flower or color, go for that, of course! If your recipient is feeling a little ambivalent about hitting this particular age milestone, consider going for an especially cheerful and colorful arrangement to remind him or her that this birthday, too, is reason to celebrate.
Maybe the individual numbers of age don't mean so much to that special retiree in your life, but that doesn't mean that the day isn't the perfect occasion for festivity! Make sure his or her day includes a touch of joyful exuberance with birthday gift ideas like birthday balloons or sweet treats. If retirement has meant plenty of time to enjoy gardening, consider sending a fresh and beautiful plant to be a reminder of your best wishes for many days to come.
