The pressure of coming up with the best gift ideas while the clock is ticking can be pressurising, but there is a range of birthday gift options readily available that can take the weight off your shoulders. 

To help you out with the task at hand, we at BC Florist have put together a list of the best birthday gifting options that are sure to bring a smile to your recipient’s face and make their celebration a tad bit more memorable. From cheery sunflower bouquets that are sure to spread joy to Surprise Boxes filled with items that will have them reminiscing over happy moments, we cover everything there is to consider. 

1. Surprise Boxes

  [Surprise Box] – Personalised Bubble Balloon with Lights (White Exterior)

The feeling of opening a large gift box that reveals a selection of the best presents remains unrivalled. The exhilaration and anticipation that comes with opening a box and the thrill of what it might contain are sure to keep every birthday boy and girl on their toes. And our selection of Magical Surprise Boxes, Surprise Money Revel Boxes, and Surprise Snacks Boxes does just that. Whether you plan on gifting a luxurious and over-the-top [Surprise Box] – Personalised Bubble Balloon with Lights (Gold Exterior) or satisfy the sweet tooth of any foodie with the [Snacks Surprise Box] – Blue theme with Lights and Photo strips, BC Florist a wide selection of customisable Surprise Boxes to choose from. What’s more, is that you can customise everything from the wordings that will be printed on the exterior and interior of the Surprise Box and the polaroid pictures that will be added to the box. 

Prefer to put a unique twist on a traditional gifting practice? Instead of reaching out for a red envelope and slipping some cash within, why not up the ante with a Surprise Money Reveal Box? Whether you would like a Bubble balloon to start flying upwards to reveal the cash gift once the ribbon is untied or a Surprise Box filled with clear mini balloons filled with decorative shredded paper and money, take your pick and see your recipient be pleasantly surprised when they find out what has been hidden. 

2. Subscription To Movies or Books

In the digital age, gifting virtual gifts is undoubtedly a convenient way to say “Happy Birthday!” If your recipient is a book lover or movie buff, gifting them a subscription to a streaming platform or an e-book or audiobook just might tickle their fancy. Whether they destress by bingeing on shows over the weekend or simply love diving their heads into the fantastical worlds of fictional characters, these make the perfect birthday gift. 

3. Gift cards

Let’s face it, as much as gift cards might seem like an easy way out when it comes to birthday gift giving, it is undeniably a practical birthday gift idea that can always be put to good use. Regardless of your recipient’s preferences, there is a range of gift cards that you can get. Aiming to make gifting easy, platforms like Giftano offer gift cards that can be used to make purchases from several retailers, fashion stores, sports brands, restaurants and more. If you are well aware of what the birthday boy or girl likes, you can get specific gift cards from their favourite stores so that they can simply head in-stores or online to get exactly what they’ve had their eyes on for the longest time. 

4. Flower Hot Air Balloon

[Flower Hot Air Balloon] – Pink Rose Theme

Does the celebrant love flowers? While a surprise bouquet delivery to their doorstep will surely make their day, why not take things up a notch with Flower Balloons? With options like Flower Hot Air Balloons that put an interesting twist on the traditional floral arrangement, these unique creations feature specially preserved flowers that last for up to a year and a hot air balloon that can be customised with personal messages. Our Flower Balloon Bloombox is another more compact version of the Hot Air Balloon. Our [Flower Balloon Bloombox] – White Preserved Roses, for example, boasts a preserved white rose bouquet within a crystal clear capsule that will stand the test of time. 

5. Personalised Hampers

Does a hamper filled with everything your recipient loves sound like a good idea? Personalising a gift box or packing a basket to the brim with all of their favourite items like food and wine is sure to keep the party going all night long. Throw in a few hand-written, heartfelt notes within the hamper and photographs that have captured unforgettable memories of the both of you to complete the whole package. To elevate the hamper and give it that extra oomph, you can even decorate the entire hamper or pair it with flower bouquets for an artistic flair. 

6. Flower Bouquets

[Rose Bouquet] – Ivory Charm

Last but not least, how can we forget the ultimate, classic birthday gift of all time – flower bouquets? A beautifully arranged bouquet makes a perfect birthday gift.
