Fresh flowers that will make mum smile

We all lead such busy lives these days that we don’t always have the time to let our loved ones know how much we care. This is why occasions like Mother’s Day are so important. It gives us all the opportunity to take time out of our busy schedules and honour the most important women in our lives. When choosing a gift for mum, fresh flowers are usually the first to come to mind. What some may not know, is that you can send flowers in a number of different forms.

A fresh bouquet

This is probably the initial idea that comes to everyone’s mind when they think of sending fresh flowers – a beautiful bouquet. Yes, you can certainly order blooms online and have them delivered directly to mum if you like. You can also have them delivered to your address if you’d like to present them in person. When choosing fresh blooms for mum, you will need to decide between tradition and her personal preferences. Carnations are considered to be the traditional flower for Mother’s Day and pink ones are particularly popular. If, however, mum prefers roses or daisies, you can look for a rose arrangement or bouquet of pink germinis instead. After all, this occasion is all about spoil her rotten!

Floral soap

If you want to send a floral gift but you want something that will last longer than fresh flowers, you can make your very own floral soap. Soap can be made very easily using glycerine, essential oils and you can decorate using flower petals.

Floral scent

If mum enjoys the smell of fresh flowers but you know that she has particularly sensitive allergies, you can still treat her to some potpourri. You can use dried flowers and plant material along with her favourite essential oils to create a sweet smelling decorating she will love. Make sure that you place the potpourri in a ceramic bowl to allow the amazing aroma to fill the air.


Fresh flowers are not an absolute must when it comes to Mother’s Day. You can opt for a potted plant instead. This is a particularly good idea if you are looking for a gift that will last longer than a couple of weeks.

With all of these fantastic options, you are sure to find fabulous fresh flowers that will make mum smile. Don’t forget, you can also include extras with your flower order such as luxury chocolates, scented candles, champagne and more!
