Last updated: Jul 04, 2022

There’s nothing like a fresh bouquet of flowers to show someone how much you care. Whether its for a birthday, anniversary, congratulations or a simple ‘thinking of you’ bunch, flowers are a perfect gift to make your friends or family smile. Online flower shops like Guernsey Flowers have made the flower selection process much easier by delivering a diverse selection of flowers all around the UK. 

If you’re not sure the difference between freesias or carnations, or what flowers are perfect for that upcoming celebration, then Cazaar have got you covered with the below flower picking tips for a variety of occasions!

Valentine's Day flowers  - Roses are the typical flower to represent love and passion. You could buy a single flower or make the day extra special with a larger bouquet. Other fresh flowers like tulips, hyacinths, orchids, and carnations are also perfect options for Valentine’s bouquets.

Congratulations flowers  - Celebrate a loved one’s new job, graduation, passed exam or new home with a beautiful fresh bouquet. Roses, irises, sunflowers, peruvian lilies, heather, orchids, and tulips add a bright and special touch for whatever you're raising a glass to!

New baby bouquet - Popping pink garden roses, mixed poppies and seasonal blossom are all perfect additions to celebrate the new addition to the family (or friend) group! 

Birthday bunch - There’s no better birthday gift than a beautiful bouquet - why not find out their favourite colour and get a bouquet that features different flowers in that shade? 

Thank you flowers - Choose the type and colour of flowers according to the recipient's taste. Sweet peas are for good times, hydrangeas for being understanding, and chrysanthemums for being a great friend. Pastel bouquets are often a perfect thank you gift.
