Birthday gifts mum will love

If your mother’s birthday is coming up, you need the perfect gift. After everything mum has done and continues to do for you, it is only fitting that she be pampered on her special day each year. Here are some excellent ideas for birthday gifts mum will enjoy.

Her favourite flowers

Fresh flowers make amazing birthday gifts for all recipients – especially mum. You can send a bouquet that includes her birth flower (depending on the month in which she is born) or the same colour as her birthstone. Alternatively, you can look for a bouquet that consists of her favourite blooms or a mixed arrangement in her favourite colour. By focusing on her favourites, you are letting her know that you care about the things that are important to her.

Potted plants

Plants are also lovely birthday gifts for mum. If you want a gift that lasts longer than a couple of weeks, look for a potted plant at your local florist. Take note of the conditions it requires and, if mum is still a very busy lady, you should opt for a plant that does not require too much care. Not all plants produce flowers so keep this in mind when making your selection.

Something extra

While shopping for birthday gifts and flowers, you may notice that your online florist also offers optional extras or combo gifts. Combos include a bouquet or plant paired with chocolates, a balloon, a bottle of wine or a cuddly teddy bear. Some combos include several gifts. Alternatively, you can choose a bouquet and add some extras to your order before proceeding to the checkout. You don’t need to limit yourself to a single extra gift either. You can add to your order until you are happy with the overall gift and it will all be delivered together.

Personal touch

Remember, birthday gifts are not about the price tag. They are about the way they make the recipient feel when they are delivered. This is why it is a good idea to make sure that you include something personal. Even if you are having the florist deliver the bouquet or plant directly to mum’s door, you can still add a personal touch by including a special message in the card attached. Instead of the generic ‘Happy Birthday’ message, you should come up with something special and personal that will make her smile.

Mum’s birthday comes around just once a year and we never know how many we will get to share with her. This is why it is so important to take your time when shopping and look for a gift that will make her feel as special as you know she is.
