Add a personal message.

Now that you have chosen your flowers and plan the event for Mother’s Day, you need to add a personal message and maybe even a photograph. You can try creating a poem, writing a little prose that you know and like, or writing your own little message. If you do it right, your options are endless. You can put the flowers in a pretty basket or even write a personalised card. You can even put together a bouquet of dried flowers to accompany the flowers you choose; this will help the flowers last longer. It doesn’t matter if it is for Mother’s Day or any other special occasion; writing a personalised message always makes for a more attractive gift. The personal touch means that she will always remember it.

Go halves with a sibling.

But it doesn’t have to stop there, be creative. Instead of just sending flowers, why not fill a doggy basket or some fresh bedding for her pooch. You could take your partner out for a romantic dinner. Why not send your Mum a flower bouquet along with some sweet and savoury treats and a handwritten letter. Even if you don’t have a Mum, make a kind gesture and send a Grandma gift. Sending a flower arrangement is always nice, but it will make your Grandmother even more pleased. Make flowers out of pot plants. Alternatively, you could do a craft and make her some pot plants. There are plenty of home-made flower pots and containers to be found in any old garden shop.

Giving flowers makes us feel happy as well.

Research shows that giving a gift of flowers has many psychological benefits, even better than giving chocolate or a gift card. Giving flowers means you are thinking of her, and it’s often the thought that counts. This is a good reason to use flowers to celebrate Mother’s Day, and the days before and after, and whenever you get them, you can enjoy them. Even when you’re not giving her flowers, you can still enjoy looking at them, smelling them and keeping them to enjoy later. Her favourite thing to do is also your favourite thing. It’s wonderful to think your children or partner has a favourite hobby, but not everyone has one, so it’s nice to be able to do something for them that they are going to enjoy. If she loves flowers, this can be one of them.

To finish.

As you can see, it’s effortless and very inexpensive to send a Mother’s Day bouquet to your Mum. If you get stuck or have a specific flower you want to order, try looking around online for cheaper options. While it’s all about her on this special day, every little helps, so we suggest giving her a generous tip too. Happy Mothers Day.
