Even the mom who requests 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. So 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
Instead of scrolling through hundreds of options, BloomThat narrows it down to six very well-designed bouquets with fun names like “The Calla Back Girl.” There are also seven other bouquets that they pair with candy and candles, and if you’re ever running last minute, they do day-of deliveries in San Francisco, New York, and L.A.
For the Mom Who's Kind of a Hippie
Over at Bouqs, they’ll tell you the farmer who grew and picked your flower, show you a picture of her, and tell you about her farm. It’s more information than you’ll ever need to know for receiving a bouquet, but the pastel roses are gorgeous.
For the Mom Who's Down With Whatever
But if you do like having a zillion options, there is of course always 1-800-Flowers, old reliable, with a perfect dozen pink petal roses for mom, or pretty much anything else your heart desires.
For the Mom Who Lives on the Edge
Or if you dare to move beyond flowers, for the more adventurous mom, ProFlowers offers more far-out options like a blooming azalea bonsai tree.
For the Mom Who Likes 'Em Fake
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 (But Is Also an Aesthete)
My favorite faux blooms, though, are actually these anemone stems from the Green Vase, where the artist custom-makes each bloom. You can tell the flowers aren’t real, but they are instead their own works of art. The geranium is gorgeous, too.
For the Mom Who'd Like to Eat Her Bouquet
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), there are pineapple daisies that are guaranteed to arrive in bloom.
