One of my favorite Mother’s Day gifts for Mama Spoiled Pretty is a beautiful floral bouquet. Yes, flowers can be a bit cliche…but when done correctly, they’re the perfect present. First, when purchasing flowers, it’s best to plan in advance. A store-bought bouquet with the price tag still on it is the antithesis of a thoughtful gesture. Plus, you’re giving your lovely mom work to do – because now she has to find an appropriate vase, cut the stems and arrange the flowers. And, it may be just me…but no matter how hard I arrange those flowers, I can never get them to look as good in the vase as they looked in the cellophane.
So do yourself (and your mom) a favor and order some professionally arranged flowers – and have them delivered to your mom’s door. I’ve yet to meet a woman who doesn’t get giddy from a flower delivery. Plus, the surprise factor kicks the gift up a few notches.
Right now, RueLaLa is having a ProPlants sale. For $21-49, you can send your mother these artfully arranged orchids:
