What are the best flowers to send?

When it comes to gifting flowers, it can be hard to know which bouquet or arrangement to send to your loved ones. What are the best blooms to send? Will they like these flowers? Are they suitable for this occasion? And just to add to the decision, there are soooo many different flower types to choose from!

With years of experience delivering flowers across Australia, we’ve got a pretty good knowledge of what flowers are sent to whom, for what occasion and when. So use this as your little guide to gifting Roses Only flowers to your friends, family and all the special people in your life. Feel free to share the love and pass this guide on to others needing a little guidance when it comes to flower choice too!

Rose Bouquet


We all know the most popular occasion to send roses: love! Those perfectly formed red buds with delicate petals and a delicate scent are guaranteed to make you swoon when you receive them and fill you with the utmost love. Roses Only delivers the finest long-stemmed roses in our traditional gift boxes or you can opt for a stunning bouquet too. Along with romance, roses can be sent for love of all types. Try pink to celebrate family, yellow for friendship, white for sympathy or mixed roses for a birthday.


Lilies make a beautiful and thoughtful gift, they’re one of the most popular flowers across the world with good reason. They’re a delicate flower available in many colours, yet they have one of the longest vase lifespans. We will send your lilies closed so you can watch them go from bud to bloom and enjoy them for longer. Top tip: clearing out the pollen from the centre will help them last even longer.

The purity of lily bouquets make them an ideal gift to send with your sympathies for a funeral or as an apology. Our Delightful Pink and Delightful White lily arrangements make an impressive and loving gift for someone you care about.

Native Bouquet


The rustic style and sturdy nature of native flowers have become a classic look and are the perfect gift for those in your life with the same personal qualities of strength and resilience. Suitable for a variety of different occasions, gift native flowers to congratulate friends or family on a new house, a new baby or a new job. 

The Roses Only Native Bouquet is a classic native arrangement filled with wildflowers such as proteas, leucadendrons and banksias, however the Blushing Natives Bouquet adds a delicate touch with a blend of natives and soft pink roses. 


By far the happiest, brightest and most loveliest flower is the sunflower (in Lucy from Marketing’s opinion). You can send sunflowers delivered for all occasions, they’re a perfect pick-me-up flower to brighten someone’s day. Try sending sunflowers as a get well soon or as a little lockdown love.

Beautiful as a bunch in a Sunflower Bouquet, but equally as uplifting in a mixed bouquet like the Summer Love in our Love Collection.

Tulip Bouquet


Widely loved, but only blooming in the cooler months of the year, you must buy tulips whilst you can and share the love for them with your friends and family! A unique, bright and stunning flower, you’ll find tulips as a mixed bouquet on Roses Only, beautifully wrapped with pink, orange and yellow tulips.

These vivid tulips make the perfect gift for a birthday, to send best wishes or to say thank you! You can have tulips delivered from late autumn to early spring.
