Where to Order Flowers for Mother’s Day That’ll Actually Make Her Say *Oh, Wow*


She’s not a regular mom, she’s a cool mom. Sure, sending mom flowers for Mother’s Day may seem about as groundbreaking as using a “cool mom” Mean Girls reference, but sometimes you have to give the people what they want, and what they want right now are pretty flowers and not-so-subtle allusions that take them back to yesteryear. (Not mad about it.) These seven places to buy flowers for Mother’s Day offer arrangements that are anything but ordinary, and there are options at every price point.

1. Floom

Browse floral arrangements designed by a curated selection of independent florists on Floom. Because the arrangements are designed by local artisans, selections and prices vary by location, and the blooms never look generic. You can order up to four weeks ahead, and same-day delivery options are also available.

The arrangement changes week to week, and is made with local and in-season flowers; this helps support local growers and is additionally great for those of us who are bad at making decisions.

3. Bloomscape 

If your mom has a green thumb, try Bloomscape—the company will ship live plants right to her door. It has a large selection of both indoor and outdoor plants, including this adorable bromeliad pineapple ($65) that comes with its own pot.  Prices start at $25 for ready-to-plant petunias and can go up to $195 for something like an extra large ficus tree, but there are many options in the under-$100 range.

4. FlowerBx

Simple doesn’t necessarily mean boring, as evidenced by the gorgeous arrangements of a single type of flower—think Italian ranunculus, peonies, and snapdragons—from FlowerBx. (Seriously, they’re absolutely stunning in a vase and sure to get an IRL heart eyes emoji reaction). You can also gift mom a flower subscription, available as a weekly or monthly delivery.
