Some things just go together: peanut butter and jelly, black and white, and Mother’s Day and flowers!
If you haven’t been sending your mom beautiful plants for Mother’s Day, now is the time to start. She deserves them; she did give birth to you, after all. (Plus, flowers are proven to improve her mood.) Here are our best tips for sending Mother’s Day flowers effectively.
The earlier you order flowers for Mother’s Day, the better. Not only will you get a better selection this way, but prices tend to creep up as the holiday grows closer. Plus, with social distancing still in place in many places, lots of people are going to be sending flowers in the mail this year rather than gifting them in person. So the sooner you get your order in the better. It’s one more thing off your to-do list!
Choose a Plant She’ll Like
Whether Mom is more into bountiful roses or austere succulents, it’s important to choose something she would like more than something you would like. It’s a simple reminder, but sometimes we forget about this when gifting! If you’re not exactly sure what Mom is into flower-wise, take a cue from how she decorates her home. If it’s more minimalist in style, a stunning orchid will be perfect. If she’s all about decoration and abundance, go for those roses. If you’re still unsure, just pick whatever you think is the prettiest; she’ll love it no matter what!
Select a Reliable Delivery Service
There are a lot of flower delivery services out there, but unfortunately not all of them have the best customer service. When choosing a flower delivery service, be sure to select one that has excellent reviews and fair prices. Even better if they disclose where their florals came from. You’ll also want to make sure that they deliver flowers as quickly as you’ll need them to be delivered — that is, if you waited until the last minute.
Include a Sweet Note
A beautiful bloom can say a lot (without actually saying anything at all!) but it’s sure nice to include a sweet note, too. Include a favorite memory that you have with your mom, or if you won’t be spending the holiday with her in person this year, then let her know how much you can’t wait to be with her next year.
Consider the Other Mother Figures in Your Life
It takes a village to raise a child, and chances are your mom had some help in raising you, too. If there are other people in your life that have been like second moms to you — perhaps a grandparent, a soccer coach, or a mom of a good friend — consider sending them flowers too. We can almost guarantee that it’ll make them tear up (in the best way).
Sending flowers is one of those things that takes minimal effort, but makes a big impact. And luckily for you, it’s the perfect thing to gift your mom this Mother’s Day. Just remember, as long as they get there on time and with a sweet note, you really can’t go wrong!
