Beautiful Roses

Name a woman who doesn’t love roses! Roses are a go-to choice when it comes to flowers, making them the perfect gift for a more “traditional” mother. Typically associated with romantic love, you want to skip the red color. Instead, choose varieties of pink, which is a symbol of appreciation and gratitude. It’s only fitting since your mom is one of the most important people in your life! Shop here

All-Time Classic Carnations

Carnations are considered by many the best flowers for Mother’s Day since they’re the official flower of the holiday! Signifying deep love, tenderness, and admiration, they capture the mother-child bond like no other. They also get bonus points for being one of the longest-lasting cut flowers you can buy. Literally, a gift that keeps on giving! Shop here



Colorful Tulips

Tulips are the tell-tale sign that spring is here! They come in all sorts of colors so if you’re not set on just one, simply surprise your mom with a vibrant rainbow showstopper! The true queens of spring will surely bring a smile to her face! Shop here




Elegant Orchids 

Lush, showy orchids symbolize deep love, strength, and beauty. Now that’s a combination that perfectly sums up mums! Also known as the moth orchid or moon orchid, Phalaenopsis orchids are low-maintenance beauties ideal for the busy mother. All she’ll need to do to enjoy blooms for many months to come is place them in bright, indirect sunlight and water them. Not everyone has a green thumb after all! Shop here


Eye-Catching Hydrangeas

The abundant, lush flowers of the hydrangea plant perfectly encapsulate the endless support and love of a mother towards her child. It doesn’t take many hydrangea stems to create a truly spectacular show, their blooms are the size of a softball! Shop here





Lush Lilies

Another Mother’s Day favorite, lilies always steal the show. Elegant and classy, just like she is, who wouldn’t gush over a bouquet of graceful lilies? Their imposing, big flowers come in a variety of colors, soft and bold, so choose the color just right for mum. Don’t forget – they last a long time and smell lovely too. One of the many reasons they’re associated with motherhood is because according to Greek Mythology, lilies were created from goddess Hera’s breast milk. We hope you don’t change your opinion about them after that origin story. Sorry! Shop here


Lovely Lisianthus

The saying “good things come in small packages” couldn’t be more true when it comes to the lovely lisianthus. This sweet little flower adds grace to any arrangement. We suggest that you mix it with bigger blooms and an abundance of lush foliage and you’ll have a breathtaking bouquet, certain to make mom’s day, or year! Shop here





Did you also make bouquets of dandelions for your mama when you were little? Their beauty certainly fits nicely with their meaning – they symbolize cheerfulness and innocence. These sweet wildflowers come in many colors, though the iconic white with a yellow center is like no other. 

A bouquet with wildflowers is a grown-up way to capture that free spirit, plus you don’t risk getting stung by bees. It’s a win-win! Shop here


Peace Lily

We know this isn’t a flower, but we just couldn’t resist. The Peace Lily is the perfect Spring gift! Their wide variety makes houseplants such great Mother’s Day gifts. Some are low-maintenance and easy-going while others require a little more attention. Let’s not forget about mums that are well-versed in all things green-fingered. They’ll so appreciate a new plant to look after! Shop here
