Florals for Mother's Day? It may not be groundbreaking, sure, but before you go all Miranda Priestly on us, hear us out: Bouquets are a universal crowd-pleaser (as long as your mom's not allergic). There's the scent, the pop of color, the whole surprise-and-delight element of 'em. So yes, get flowers for Mom this year, and while you're at it, choose one with a special meaning behind it. These arrangements all come from brands we've vetted through our PureWow100 testing series, so we can feel confident recommending them to you. The hardest part will be choosing which one to send.
Want to Get Flowers for Mom? These 13 Bouquets Will Not Disappoint
1. Terrain Fresh Rainbow Ranunculus Bunch
You may want to go in with your sibs on this one, because it's definitely a splurge, but wow—what an impact it makes. (Plus, that mix of butterfly ranunculus, peonies, tulips, anthurium flowers and palm and monstera leaves aren't the cheapest.) Leave it to Anthro's sister store, Terrain, to create a tropical vacation you can hold in your hands.
2. The Bouqs Company Sweet Lavender
This assortment of lavender roses and statice, burgundy scabiosa, baby blue eucalyptus, and white delphinium was designed with Mother’s Day in mind, so it’s a good option if you don’t know mom’s favorite flower. In fact, you might even earn yourself a Facebook shoutout, since she’ll want to brag about this gorgeous arrangement.
3. Teleflora’s Pour On The Pretty Bouquet
Pink spray roses, lavender stock and chrysanthemums pop against this purple ombré ceramic pitcher, which, yes, is included. It's like getting two gifts in one (with a bonus gift for you, too, if it inspires Mom to make her famous sweet tea with it later).
4. Urbanstems The Verona
We love the rustic touch that hypericum berries bring to this otherwise hyper-feminine rose and ruscus bouquet. She’ll know that you hand-picked it just for her, rather than going for a generic choice.
5. Teleflora Marvelous Mosaic Bouquet
If your mom's not into cutesy arrangements, opt for something a little moodier, like this jeweltone mix. A succulent and eucalyptus sprigs give this bouquet a little edginess, offsetting the sweetness of the carnations.
6. The Bouqs Company Cupcake
This muted mix of peachy, pink and cream flowers—including peach carnations, white spray roses, parvifolia and limoniums—make this arrangement the visual equivalent of icing on the cake. It's just...sweet. And isn't that something every Mom yearns for on a day devoted to her? Just remember that some blooms arrive in bud form, so it's worth scheduling your delivery a day or two early (if you want them in full bloom on May 8).
7. Floom Pink Baby
What sets Floom apart from other online flower delivery services is how closely the brand works with local florists. Rather than have set designs that florists across the country recreate, Floom highlights individual florists' creations, letting their creativity shine. So, when searching the site, your best bet is to start with the delivery zip code, then scan arrangements made by local vendors in your area. (That said, while we're highlighting Pink Baby's delicate mix of blooms, it might not be available in your area. Rest assured there are plenty of other worthwhile picks!) We were stunned by the range of luxe arrangements and how closely the photos on the site mirrored what arrived at our doorstep.
8. Farmgirl Flowers Moira Rose
May 8 is just around the corner… now’s not the time for pettifogging! So, in honor of Moira Rose, the iconic matriarch from Schitt's Creek, gift your mother this bedeviling bouquet of garden roses for a petal-packed presence.
9. Urban Stems The Peony
Peonies are only in season for a few months, which makes this elegant flower arrangement feel all the more special. Tell Mom that if she wants her peonies to last longer, she should store them in her fridge at night. She can also add a spoonful of sugar to the water to slow down the blooming process (if they didn’t already come with flower food, that is).
10. 1-800-flowers Lovely Lavender Plant
The scent of lavender has been linked to relieving anxiety—something we could all use after this past year, but especially moms, who have been facing the 'triple burden' of pandemic life. This plant arrives blooming, and it can be shipped with a coordinating Camille Beckman Glycerine Hand Therapy lotion, making this duo one bath bomb shy of being a spa day at home.
11. Urbanstems The Luna
If you’d describe mom’s aesthetic as boho chic, this is the bouquet for her. You can also pick the vase you think she’ll like best with this arrangement.
12. 1-800-flowers Graceful Gardenia
Want something Mom can enjoy for more than a week? Choose this gardenia plant, which typically flowers from May through September, filling the house with its soft, floral scent. Oh, and did we mention that you can choose to include a gardenia-scented candle that arrives in a coordinating gift box? Two delicious scents, one gift.
13. Urbanstems The Maia
The beautiful arrangement of roses, peonies, ranunculus, Star of Bethlehem, snapdragons, ruscus and wax flower is sure to impress this Mother’s Day. The bright peachy pinks will instantly add cheer to her kitchen table or infuse a pop of color to the hall console. It's another major splurge, but we could see her reusing the modern, two-toned vase for years to come.
