Why not use elle instead of lui in the above sentence Il lui envoie deux millieurs de roses. Same for Il lui envoie deux mille rose? Are these typos?

Hi Robin,

in French it is "envoyer quelque chose à quelq'un". Therefore quelqu'un is an indirect object and the third person singular pronoun is lui, regardless of gender.
