You can never go wrong with flowers — they’re a really simple way to show somebody that you care about them. If you’re far away from someone you care about (like, I don’t know, your mom), you’re in luck. Whether you want to send your mother a bounty of fresh-cut red roses or something a little more sophisticated like an orchid, we found the best flower delivery services that’ll ship beautiful bouquets straight to her door.
Mother’s Day this year is on Sunday, May 14, so it’s time to get those gifting plans in order. Whether mom loves classic fresh flower bouquets, low-maintenance succulents, or enormous statement houseplants for her living space, these delivery services will cover all the bases for your loved one’s floral design aesthetic. Some even offer monthly flower subscription services to show your mom you don’t forget about her on those other 364 days of the year, while most have a wide selection of add-ons to make your present sparkle. While most companies offer same-day delivery throughout the year, Mother’s Day is one of the busiest holidays in the plant business, so place your orders as early as possible to ensure they get there on time.
Now, it’s time to stop and smell the roses — or tulips, or carnations. Below, take a gander at some of the best online flower delivery services for the freshest bouquets that’ll land at your mom’s doorstep with total ease.
Probably one of the most recognizable flower delivery services, 1800Flowers is stocked with vibrant fresh-cut flowers that your mom is bound to adore. A basic, vase-less delivery of 15 stems of fresh blooms will set you back $45, but you can easily upgrade your order to include a vase, suncatcher, and/or gift baskets filled with yummy treats like chocolate-covered pretzels at an added charge.
Availability: 1800Flowers currently offers national and international delivery in over 195 countries. Along with scheduled delivery dates, you can order flowers with next-day and same-day delivery options — including an array of same-day flower deliveries specially made for last-minute Mother’s Day shoppers.
Want to show Mom how much you love her every month? Then, instead of saving flower deliveries for special occasions, set her up with a BloomsyBox subscription. You can set up weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly deliveries to gift your mom a fresh set of flowers at any time. Along with its jaw-droppingly wide selection of different types of flowers, this delivery service provides gorgeous curations inspired by events, occasions, and even locations like the New York Botanical Garden. It’s worth noting that BloomsyBox’s team selects the flowers for you, so customizable bouquets are not an option at this retailer.
