Mother’s Day is almost here (March 22nd) – time to spoil the mums in our lives! The perfect Mother’s Day gift is not necessarily the most expensive present but usually something that shows the thought and effort you have put in. So why not go to your local florist? A floral expert who can create gifts, hand-made with love and craft. Scroll down for some popular Mother’s Day gift ideas.
1 Hatbox arrangements
The so-called ‘hatbox’ arrangements are extremely popular and loved by many mums. And we get why – as this is the perfect example of 2 gifts in 1! Hatboxes do not only display the flowers in a lovely manner, but they can often be reused as well. For example to store little knick-knacks or to get refilled with flowers of course! Popular Mother’s Day flowers to feature in the hatbox design are Tulips, Roses and Carnations.
2 Planted baskets
Is your mum quite traditional? A basket filled with seasonal flowers will probably do the trick then! Buy a ready-made basket filled with spring plants and your mum will get to enjoy for weeks on end. Spring plants include Narcissus, Hyacinths, Freesias and Tulips. If you opt for Hyacinths or Freesias, your mum will get their lovely fragrance filling the room as a big bonus. Finish it with a hand-written card and your mum will be delighted.
3 Hand-tied bouquets
This is where you can be in control! Pick your mum’s favourite flowers and let your local florist turn it into a beautiful hand-tied bouquet finished with filler flowers and foliage. Not sure which flowers your mum or mother in law prefers? Leave it to the expert: order a florists’ choice bouquet for example, which often consists of stunning seasonal flowers.
4 Floral workshops
If you want to take it further, then surprise your mum with a floral creation of your own. Discover your own green thumbs and create a Mother’s Day hatbox, hand-tied or basket arrangement under the guidance of a skilled (local) florist. Or even better: take your mum with you to a floral workshop, so you both get to create a floral masterpiece. These workshops are unique experiences and therefore, you will most definitely look back at it for a long time with great pleasure.
