Birthstone And Flower Of Each Month
Why not buy a gift of jewelry containing garnets? If you want
to buy the person some flowers then pick out white carnations as this is the color for the month of January. Buy
some snowdrops for the garden but not bulbs. It is always better to purchase these as plants.
Look out for books, CDs and DVDs with amethyst in the
title. Buy a piece jewelry with an amethyst set in it. Purchase a pot of violets or primroses to be planted in the
garden. The color for this month is violet so why not buy a bouquet in this color?
Bloodstone or aquamarine are the birthstones for this month so you have a choice
when buying jewelry. If the gift is for a man you could buy some cuff links containing the stones. Daffodils should
be in the shops to purchase so you could add a few to the gift. If the gift is big enough you could add a daffodil
to the outside (see our gift wrapping page for details). Have a bouquet made
up in this months color yellow. Do not mix jonquil (daffodils) with other flowers as they will kill them with the
toxin they secrete.
Add a packet of sweet peas to the present or purchase a bouquet in pink. Buy a silver pendant set with
diamonds. Often the diamonds are tiny but this would still
make a lovely gift for someone.
When using the birthstone and flower of each month chart you will see that the flower is lily of the valley.
Lily of the Valley perfumed toiletries make a lovely present for the older person. Emeralds are the birthstone for this month so for the man buy a tie pin and
cuff links to match. Place them on a white shirt as this is the color for May.
Purchase a bouquet of red roses or a honeysuckle for the garden. Pearls are
supposed to be unlucky if given as a gift so you may wish to check that the person you are giving them to is not
superstitious. In the birthstone and flower of each month chart alexandrite is also used as this months birthstone so this could be given
instead of a pearl gift.
If the person you are buying for has a pond then get them a pink waterlily to go in it. Very attractive when
they come out each year. Look out for books and CDs with ruby in
their title. These are ideal gifts for men.
Buy some yellow gladioli for the birthday girl or a bouquet of yellow flowers containing them. One of the
birthstones for this month is sardonyx, a red/brown and white banded
onyx which is made into a variety of jewelry pieces including earrings, rings, cuff links and pendants. Peridots may also be given for this birthstone month.
Purchase some jewelry set with sapphires such as
earrings, pendants, rings and cuff links. Morning Glory plants are ideal for growing against walls and fences and
give a lovely show of purple/blue flowers when in bloom. You could also buy a bouquet of purple flowers for the
When checking the birthstone and flower of each month chart you see that the birthstone this month is an
opal and the flower is a marigold. Here are a few gift
suggestions with these in mind. Marigolds are orange/yellow but you will have to buy them as a packet of seeds
at this time of year to be included with the gift. The opal is the October birthstone so you could organize a
vacation to Australia to visit an opal mine. This would certainly be a birthday to remember.
Purchase jewelry in either citrine or topaz for this birthstone month. Chrysanthemums usually come in pots
from the florist so pick out a nice healthy one with lots of buds still to come out. Yellow is the color for
There is plenty of choice for different stones set in jewelry for the month of December. Turquoise, blue
topaz and light sapphire may all be used as
birthstones for this month. This will allow you to pick out jewelry at the price you wish to pay. A bouquet of
white carnations would also make a nice gift for a birthday in this month. Use a ribbon in blue to tie in with the
color of the birthstones.
