Like every month has its own gemstone, each month also has its own flower. So, while you may think of red roses for February, the birth flower for the month is actually violets.
These purple flowers have a lovely smell and are very fragrant, and they represent modesty, spiritual wisdom, faithfulness, and virtue. In addition to being a truly delectable addition to drinks, violets also make a beautiful theme for a gift for someone with a February birthday.
All of this said you may wonder what are some February birthday flower gifts? Well, we have you covered! Let’s take a look at some of those February birthday ideas!

Violet Season Doesn’t Usually Align With February
Even though the violet is a lovely flower, it does not bloom during February. Actually, the violet blooms in the spring. Because of this, it may seem challenging to give the gift of violets when none are actively blooming or available.
Fortunately, you don’t need to gift actual violets to give someone the idea of the violet. The options that follow are not only fabulous gifts, they are unique workarounds when no violets are blooming.
Online Options Makes Violets An Option for February Birthday Gift, But At A Price
That said, if your heart is absolutely set on real, true violets, but they aren’t blooming in February, the global economy can make it happen. Thanks to Amazon, these beautiful Miniature African Violets should do the trick. These little violets would work well in a fairy garden and need bright indirect light.
Be aware that since you are ordering real flowers, the variety and color that arrives may be slightly different from the image, depending on how the crop developed and fared. You will, however, probably pay a higher overall cost that may include the cost of shipping. So, if only actual, live flowers will do, that is probably your best bet.
Artificial Violets Are A Great, Low-Maintenance Gift For February Birthdays
If you are purchasing the gift for someone without a green thumb, and you think they may prefer silk flowers anyway, consider this lovely hanging basket of violets.
Not only do silk flowers look just like real, living flowers, but they also require no extra care, cannot die, and will not make anyone’s allergies flare up! Perfect for hanging off the front porch, this twelve-inch basket has fiber at the bottom to make it look natural. The flowers are a mix of purple and white flowers.
Incorporate Violets Into Your February Birthday Gift – Without Giving Flowers
Who doesn’t love jewelry? It always makes an excellent gift, and if you have a piece for someone that captures violets as well as February’s birthstone of amethyst, you’ll have a pretty special gift.
It is possible to give the gift of violets without actually giving violets. These very reasonably priced and beautiful necklaces would make an incredible gift. There are three different design options proudly displaying that month’s flower in an 18K gold pendant for each month. This sterling silver pendant combines amethyst and violets to make a lovely necklace. If the person you are buying for tends to wear more silver or has a genuine love for their birthstone, this one will definitely be a hit. This pendant’s sterling silver is plated with Rhodium, giving it an extra bit of shine.
A Growing Violet In Glass Sends A Message Of Eternal Love for a birthday gift
While there may have been a rose behind glass in Beauty and the Beast, you can gift something just as elegant and enchanting with this live Persian violet in a Terrarium.
These sweet little terrariums can be enjoyed all year. They require no extra care as the plant is self-sufficient in the glass jar, growing into a beautiful violet. This option is the best of both worlds. You can give an actual flower while ensuring that it is perfect, even when it isn’t actually blooming season.
This unique terrarium has a gel inside the glass that gives the violet all it needs to thrive and bloom throughout the whole year. Your purchase also comes with a guarantee that you’ll see growth within 60 days. When you order the plant for a February gift, there’s a good chance it will still be winter. If that is the case, it will ship with a heat pack.
Violet Lotion for A February birthday gift Will Give Them The Scent Of Violets Year Round
Another thoughtful gift is a lotion with a violet scent. Since lotions do not require maintenance, your gift recipient will love the ability to smell violets year-round without the limitations of care, allergies, or the seasons.
Creams are lovely because they show the recipient that you care about their feelings and comfort. Specially selected lotion shows someone that you’ve taken the time to consider what smell someone may enjoy and picked something that would feel special.
A Violet Candle Is A Lovely Gift For February Birthdays
Candles are another special gift you could give for someone’s birthday. This violet and cedar candle has all the delicate scent of the violet flower without being too overwhelming because it is balanced with cedar.
This candle would suit a home during any time of the year because of this balance. This candle also features a wooden wick, giving it a crackling wood effect similar to a fire in your fireplace. The 10 oz candle should burn for approximately 65 hours, so your gift will be enjoyed for many weeks after their birthday, and each time they light it, they will surely think of you!
Violet Artwork for February Birthday gift Would Bring A Springtime Joy To Any Home
Another gift idea for February babies is a piece of art depicting a springtime violet. Etsy has several beautiful choices to pick from, and the artisans have everything from watercolor to collages to prints. Consider adding some true springtime magic to your gift recipient’s home by gifting some artwork!
