Mother’s Day might have just gone by, but it’s never too early to get the next date in your diary – the next one coming up is 8th of May, 2022. Sometimes it might feel as though you can’t give your mum something proportional to what she deserves for Mother’s Day, and if that is the case then there is no time like the present to start planning the next one. One of the most bought presents for this occasion is flowers, and there’s a reason for this. These beautiful things are one of the best Mother’s Day gifts that you can buy as women love to get flowers.

However, there are so many different varieties to choose from that it can become really difficult to figure out which ones you want to get for this occasion. Luckily for you, we have compiled a list of some of what we think are the best choices. Keep reading down below if you would like to find out more.

Roses

When you think of flowers, roses are probably where your brain goes first. These are beautiful and a classic flower. They are also one of the best flowers that you can give to your mum. Something that you might not know though is that the different colours actually have meaning and represent different things. For example, white roses symbolise innocence and purity as well as respect. They are a beautiful flower on their own, or in a bouquet. 

Purple roses are not that common, but they show adoration. They are typically associated with splendor and royalty, but they are a fantastic gift to give your mum for this special occasion. However, you do have to remember that as they aren’t as common, so you will have to give your florist time to source these.

The yellow rose is usually a sign of friendship, but can also show caring. They are the rose that you use when you don’t want to show any kind of romantic interest, making it perfect for Mother’s Day. 

Pink roses are often seen to show peace and gratitude, so if you want to thank your mum for putting up with you for all of these years, then pink might be the way to go!

Red roses are traditionally symbolic of love. Now while you might typically associate giving these to someone that you have romantic interest in, they can also be used to show deep love for a mother.

Tulips

A beautiful expression of love, tulips are a fantastic flower for any occasion. They typically last for between five and twelve days, so they can brighten your mums day for a while! You can also get an array of colours, or a singular colour for a bouquet, depending on what your mum’s tastes.

Carnations

Carnations are typically seen as the official Mother’s Day flower. This is because they symbolise admiration, pure love and affection. They last anywhere up to two weeks, so your mum is going to have them for quite a long time after Mother’s Day. This will remind her every day that even though you might not be there, you love her more than anything in the world. Again, you can get a range of colours when it comes to carnations, with some of the most common being pink, white, and red.

Chrysanthemums

This flower is in season and blooming in May. It’s one of the reasons that they are associated with Mother’s Day in the first place. Chrysanthemum flowers have also been nicknamed ‘mums’ for short. Doesn’t seem like anything could be any more fitting than this! These flowers symbolise joy, optimism and longevity. Some of the most beautiful colours for this flower are the purples and pinks, making a really lovely combination.

Daisies 

When you were younger, did you ever sit in the grass, picking daisies and making daisy chains? We bet your mum did too, and that’s one of the reasons that daisy’s are such a special gift. They bring back memories of a simpler time when we would all sit down and play with the flowers in the grass. 

When it comes to Mother’s Day, if someone is a new mum, daisies are the perfect flower to give them. Why? Because daisies symbolise childbirth, motherhood and new beginnings. They are a beautiful addition to any bouquet, as they’re pretty versatile and go with most other flowers. However, they are also stunning on their own if you don’t want to drown them out too much.

Lilies

Did you know that lilies are associated with rebirth and motherhood? If you didn’t, then you might not have thought to give these as a gift on Mother’s Day before, but now you will. They have different meanings depending on the colour, but in general they mean devotion.

Pink lilies often symbolise prosperity, white symbolise purity, red symbolise passion, orange symbolise confidence, pride and wealth. These are the most common colours that you will find lilies in. Think carefully about what you are trying to convey to your mum when you are choosing your flower type and colour, and make sure you look it up first to check that your intended meaning will be conveyed!

Lisianthus

Have you heard of the saying that good things come in small packages? Well, this is certainly the case when it comes to lovely Lisianthus flowers. Typically found filling out a bouquet or arrangement, these flowers bring a sort of elegance to any mixture they find themselves in. When you couple them with bigger blooms and foliage, you will get a bouquet that is definitely worthy of Mother’s Day.

Irises

If you want to go for something that is eye-catching, then irises are certainly a good choice. The elegance of the flower, combined with the stunning colour ensures that it brightens up any room in the home. They go extremely well with roses, so if you want to have a beautiful mixture, that’s definitely one to consider. If your mum loves colour, then this will be perfect.

Orchids

Known as the gift that keeps on giving when bought in a pot! They need some particular care, but nothing over the top so they aren’t a super high maintenance flower. We promise that if you turn up with an orchid on Mother’s Day, you are going to steal all the attention.

Get A Subscription

If you can’t choose what flowers you want, then you don’t have to. One of the options available to you is to get a subscription and have flowers sent to your mother once per month for either three months, six months, or an entire year. You can have different kinds sent each time so that your mum gets a range of flowers over the duration. We operate our flower delivery service to most places across Australia, so this shouldn’t be a problem to anyone who wants to buy from us. If you happen to move within the duration of your subscription, just let us know the new address and we will be happy to deliver there as long as it is in the areas that we cover. We want to help you make every single month special for your mum, not just one day out of the year, and this is a fantastic way to do it.
