Mother’s Day Bouquets for Every Type of Mom (That You Can Order Online)

Even the mom who asks that you buy her nothing will be pleased with a bouquet of flowers, and even the laziest gift-giver can order a bouquet online. You can do it today, even, and start feeling very accomplished and ahead of the game. Here we’ve made Mother’s Day gifting the easiest it’s ever been, with a bouquet (and a place to shop for a bouquet) for every type of mom. And if you happen to prefer handing the flowers to mom yourself, we’ve got great vases for that, too.

For the mom who likes it curated

The Rickie

Instead of having you scroll through hundreds of options, UrbanStems offers a rotating selection of seasonal bouquets as well as arrangements — like this one — created by Vogue editors.

For the mom who’s indecisive

The BFF — Flowers + Gifts

If you’re not sure if mom prefers candy or flowers, you can get both from San Francisco florist Farmgirl Flowers. This arrangement comes with treats like salted caramel from Caramel Caravan Co. and chocolate from Pump Street Chocolate.

For the mom who’s kind of a hippie

Marshmallow Deluxe

Over at The Bouqs Company, they’ll tell you the name of the farmer who grew and picked your flowers, show you a picture of them, and tell you about their farm. But we think mom’ll love these white ranunculus flowers even if she doesn’t know they were grown in volcanic soil in Ecuador.

For the mom who wants to do good

The Miss Manhattan

Portions of the proceeds from each of these bouquets inspired by pop-up floral artist Lewis Miller at UrbanStems go to ProjectArt, an organization that provides free after-school arts education to kids.

For the mom who wants it colorful

Santa Cruz’n Deluxe

This massive, multicolored bouquet is a rainbow of miniature roses.

For the mom who thinks pink

Pink Petal Roses

If you do like having a zillion options, there is of course always good old, reliable 1-800-Flowers, who will supply two dozen perfect pink-petal roses for mom, or pretty much anything else her heart desires.

For the mom who lives on the edge

Tropical Bliss

If you dare to move beyond flowers, for the more adventurous mom, Telefora offers more far-out options like this tropical garden of red ginger, red ti leaves, and bamboo-like equisetum.

For the mom with a green thumb

DIY Succulent Terrarium Kit

If mom’s caught plant fever, let her create her own succulent garden with this DIY terrarium from the Sill.

For the mom who appreciates a statement

Moms Just Wanna Have Fun

If your mom believes that bigger is better, The Bouqs Company offers supersized “grand” versions of their popular bouquets. This one has triple the blooms of the already eye-catching original.

For the mom who likes ‘em simple

White Single Stem Orchid Plant

With proper care, this orchid can last up to two months, and in simple white, there’s no chance mom will get tired of it beforehand.

For the mom who likes ‘em fake

John-Richard Collection Peonies N Pink Faux-Floral Arrangement

While everyone loves the real deal, there’s nothing wrong with some fancy faux flowers that’ll last a lifetime (and no one can tell the difference). These luxurious silk peonies come with the glass container and acrylic water.

For the mom who likes ‘em fake (when you’re on a budget)

Luyue Vintage Artificial Peony Silk Flowers

We’ve written about these silk peonies before, and though they don’t come with a vase or fake water, they’re still convincing dupes for the real thing. (Just be sure to give them to her in a nice vase.)

For the mom who likes ‘em fake (but is also an aesthete)

Metaflora Faux Fan Palm + Anthurium Bouquet

Strategist associate editor Katy Schneider says anthuriums are the status flower of the moment. Since they can cost $20 per stem, she says they’re also good ones to buy faux.

For the mom who likes ‘em real (but preserved)

Richland Preserved Billy Buttons Craspedia, Set of 10

These preserved craspedia stems are a perennial favorite among Strategist readers — and would look particularly nice in a milk-glass vase (which you can also buy on Amazon).

For the mom who buys flowers for the vase

White Amaryllis, Footed Pot

Even if the amaryllis eventually dies, this dip-dyed ceramic vase is pretty enough to display on its own.

For the mom who’s a minimalist

Seasonal Pink Blossom Branches

This bunch of branches is a selection of pink cherry, peach, apricot, or plum branches (depending on what’s in season) and comes in a simple aluminum pail.

For the mom who prefers herbs

Essential Kitchen Garden Herbs 6-Pack

If mom’s into greenery she can also cook with, this set includes versatile herbs like garlic chive, Tuscan blue rosemary, and Greek oregano.

For the mom who’d like to eat her bouquet

Delicious Daisy Dipped Strawberries & Pineapple

And if mom is the type who loves fruit even more than she loves flowers (and let’s be real, who doesn’t love a decorative fruit bouquet), these pineapple daisies and chocolate-dipped strawberries are guaranteed to arrive in bloom.
