    Default Alternatives to flowers?

    I'm looking for something I can get delivered to my brother for his birthday. He lives in another state and I can't think of anything he wants so was thinking about getting something sent to him at work, but he probably wouldn't be into flowers! Any ideas for something unique I could get sent to him? He is turning 34.

    Does he like chocolate? You could send one of those lollypotz boquets.
    They are basically just a heap of chocolate arranged in a bunch like flowers would be.

    You can order balloons, Lolly/chocolate bouquets, fruit hampers ... there are heaps of alternatives you can order online through florists. Or perhaps you could find someone who lives near your brother on facebook who does those kinds of things for a fraction of the price.

    I've sent some beautiful plants to people before via online shopping. One place I order from stocks a lot of beautiful natives, the other place does little potted plants like herbs, money trees, bonzai.

    You could check out www.lollypotz.com.au and see if they deliver in your area?
