April Birthday Fun Facts
April Birth Stone: Diamond
With the brightest rays of sunshine peeking through the still-bare foliage of April, it comes as no surprise that the April birth stone is none other than the long sought-after diamond. The stone’s name is derived from the Greek word “adamus”, meaning invincible; a fitting name for one of the hardest substances found in the world. While diamonds are most commonly colorless, they can be found in shades from yellow to pink to blue, depending on the impurities of the rock.
Historically, diamonds have been used to aid in strength – from spiritual strength to physical and emotional. During ancient times, people even believed that diamonds were either tears of the gods or made of lightning bolts! Some of the earliest recorded history of the diamond dates back to around 300 BC in India, where it was valued for its reflective properties and used in talismans to ward off evil. During the Middle Ages, people would not only sleep with diamonds to strengthen their health, but would even go as far as to ingest diamonds to cure illnesses!
Shine on, you April diamond!
April Birth Flower: Daisy
Daisies are the unofficial flower of spring, making them the perfect festive flower for those born in April! Blooming in colors from all over the spectrum, a freshly picked bouquet of cheerful daisies is sure to put a smile on anyone’s face.

Not only that, but they belong to one of the largest families of plants in the world, making up 10% of all flowering plants!

April Zodiac Signs: Aries and Taurus
April falls under two astrological signs – Aries (March 21 to April 19) and Taurus (April 20 to May 20). Those born under Aries the ram are typically independent, yet extremely caring when it comes to those close to them. They are courageous and enthusiastic, making them born leaders and risk takers. Those born under Taurus the Bull, on the other hand, value the ends more than the means, and are great at seeing projects through completion.
April Birthday Gift Ideas:
A gift overflowing with daisies is a must for your April birthday boy or girl. Whether you send an arrangement with a collection of color flowers or a simply elegant bouquet with just a selection of daisies, your giftee is sure to smile.
Most Aries-born prefer a nice night at home, brainstorming and working on their craft to a wild night of partying. Give them a gift to help spruce up their home office and add some life and nature to their day with a beautiful bonsai tree!
If your special someone was born under the Taurus zodiac sign, take note: a typical Taurus loves to enjoy the finer things in life. Send them a relaxation-packed spa gift basket to help them indulge in their love for luxury.
