October Birthday Gift Ideas

Read about the Tree2mydoor Tree of the Month for October in our latest blog post. This month we chose the Braeburn Apple Tree. As one of the late-season apples, this is when the fruit will be ripening.

The fruit is one of the nations favourite eating apples. It possesses a crisp yet juicy texture with an abundance of sweet flavour in every mouthful. When it comes to the perfect October birthday gift, this is it. The annual batch of autumn apples is a gift that gives back every year.

Our Braeburn Apple is delivered in a lightweight plastic 10L pot that has been hand wrapped in a natural hessian bag. The tree can be planted this month, as it is grafted onto a dwarfing rootstock it’s the perfect size for small gardens and can even be grown in a large pot. Get one today and we can deliver directly to the recipient on their special day in October.


Twisted Olive Tree

The Twisted Olive Tree is a really interesting *twist* on the traditional Olive Tree gift. This beautiful tree has been trained to grow with a twisted stem, making it a great ornamental piece in the garden. 

Evergreen by nature, this variety of Olive Tree is the Olea Europaea meaning that they won’t grow and take over an outside-space. They stay rather small and in the warmer months produce beautiful white flowers, so they’re wonderful to place either side of a doorway or entrance into the home. This variety of olive tree is able to produce olives when grown with care, which makes it a wonderful gift for people who love a taste of the Med, or who enjoy time in the kitchen!

Our Twisted Olive Tree is the ideal gift for an October birthday or anniversary, this tree will bring a little bit of sun to the garden, even in the cooler months. You can expect it to be delivered, gift-wrapped and ready, for your recipient on your chosen day.

Wollemi Pine Tree Gift

Wollemi Pine Tree

The Wollemi Pine Tree is an infamous variety that looks stunning year-round. Distinct in both its appearance and history, the tree is from the Jurassic era and was thought to be extinct until rediscovered in an Australia gorge in 1994.

Wollemi Pines are evergreen and needles that adorn their branches year-round. As winter approaches, the buds start to develop a striking white waxy coating with red edges. This is one of the most unique trees we have available and it’s highly sought after so if you want one, you’ll have to get one fast. We deliver our trees in a lightweight 3L pot with an information gift pack.

We think they’re perfect for an October occasion as, when all the other trees are losing their leaves for autumn this one will still be looking spritely and green. We promise friends and family won’t be disappointed with one of these. Plus, with all the amazing lengths people are going to for sustainability now this is the perfect gift idea, planting just one Wollemi pine tree can offset 2% of a persons carbon footprint.


Lemon Tree Gift

The Lemon Tree Gift is a firm favourite for year-round gifts. Evergreen by nature, this fruiting citrus tree will not lose its leaves in the colder months, making it a really thoughtful October gift.

Our citrus trees make wonderful indoor plants, brightening up bedrooms and living rooms with their wonderful green foliage and fresh, fruity aroma. And while this tree will not develop fiery, Autumnal colours, the lemon tree is a great way to keep a taste of summer in the colder, darker months 

The Lemon Tree Gift will be delivered straight to your recipient's door, gift-wrapped and ready. You can also learn about how to care for it properly with our handy Lemon Tree Care Guide, to ensure that you get the most out of your October gift!

Bloodgood Japanese Maple Tree

Bloodgood Japanese Maple Tree

The Bloodgood Japanese Maple Tree had dark burgundy leaves year-round until it approaches autumn when the tree transforms into bright shades of ruby reds. It’s a definite favourite of ours here at Tree2mydoor.

This Acer variety has one of the best autumn displays which is ideal for people with October birthdays. Annually, around their birthday they will be met with a blaze of beautiful colours before the leaves fall ready for the winter. Each year they will look out at the tree and be reminded of both you and their special day.

The Bloodgood Acer Tree will be delivered in a gift-wrapped 3L pot and is perfect for small to medium-sized gardens. While it can grow to around 20ft in height, it is very slow-growing and is commonly used for bonsai. Once the tree is received it can be enjoyed from the get-go and placed in the garden straight away.
