5 Best Flower Gifts For Your Mom’s Birthday

Sometimes picking a gift for the most important woman in your life can get really challenging to. What do you give to someone who has dedicated her whole life to you and your family? No gift can ever amount to that, but still, you have to try and give your mom something special for special occasions like her birthday.

Before you stress yourself out looking for the best gift you can give to your mom on her birthday, stop thinking about what she already has. Does she already have enough bags, shoes, and clothes and you can’t think of anything else that’ll surprise her as much? If yes, why don’t you try focusing on simple yet meaningful gifts that all mothers would love to receive—flowers. Yes, a bouquet of fresh blooms can be the answer to your gift-giving quest.

Fresh Blooms To Take Away The Gloom

You can never go wrong with a bouquet (or more) of flowers. They’re not only beautiful but also sentimental, meaningful, and perfect for any kind of occasion. Your mom will surely be delighted to receive colorful, fragrant, and gorgeous fresh blooms for her birthday.

Another good thing about gifting flowers is that they’re very easy to source. You can find a selection of the local florist in your area any day. Flower bouquets are also customizable, and you can select from a wide variety of flowers and arrangements to give to your mom.

That said, here are some of the top flower picks to choose from for your mom’s birthday bouquet:

1. White Hydrangeas

Moms are effortlessly associated with the color white, simply because their hearts are just as pure. What better way to let her know you appreciate her pure heart than to give her a full bouquet of white hydrangeas?

The natural beauty and charm of hydrangeas will surely captivate your mom’s pure heart. You can get an arrangement of hydrangeas only, but you can also ask your florist if other white flowers can be mixed with the bouquet to make it look beautifully varied.

Also, request for hydrangeas that aren’t fully opened yet. Bud forms are better so that the flowers will last longer and more beautiful as days pass.

2. Rainbow-Colored Tulips

It’s hard to think of any woman who’s not enchanted by the charm of tulips, regardless of color. They say that tulips symbolize deep or perfect love, and that makes it even more perfect for your mom on her special day.

Your mom will instantly fall in love with a bouquet of rainbow-colored tulips. She may have a favorite color, but her eyes will glimmer in rainbow shades once she receives the bouquet. You can pick different colors, starting with orange, pink, red, white, and purple. Just like hydrangeas, tulips are best gifted in bud forms so they’ll last longer in vases.

3. Roses

There may be thousands of flower species in the world but roses will always be a crowd favorite. Roses are so simple yet their beauty remains irresistible and unique in their own way. There’s a rose color perfect for any occasion, taste, and even personality of the person you’ll be giving them to.

For moms, a mixture of pink, white, yellow, and red roses will be elegant and captivating at the same time. Roses are also very known for their strong and pleasant fragrance, which makes them ideal for floral arrangements and other home decorating ideas. Your mom will enjoy decorating the house with varied colors of roses even days after her birthday.

4. Ranunculus

The concept of giving ranunculus as a gift to someone special goes beyond as early as the Victorian era. They’re considered the ‘fairy tale blooms’ that symbolize beauty and charm. Your mom will love the blooming petals of ranunculus, and she’ll definitely love the variations of colors and textures in its bouquet.

Ranunculus is available in a broad range of colors, including purple, orange, yellow, red, pink, and white. There are also bicolored tones that mimic confetti that’ll brighten your mom’s special day. Just remember to order ranunculus in bigger bouquet sizes since its bloom are smaller and soft layered.

5. Sunflowers

Vibrantly beautiful and simply irresistible, sunflowers are perfect for the woman who never fails to brighten your days. If your mom’s more into bright colors and sunshine vibes, sunflowers will be more than enough to make her smile her widest smiles.

Sunflowers can also make for beautiful floral centerpieces at home. She can easily put them into tall vases and scatter the centerpieces all over the house. That’ll make your mother smiling for days each time she looks around and see your radiant gift.

Bouquets of Love

No matter which particular flowers you decide to gift your mother on her birthday, she’ll always be grateful and appreciative because of your effort. Don’t forget to include a personal greeting card along with the bouquet so she’ll feel even more special after reading your birthday message.

All moms deserve the most beautiful and thoughtful gifts, not only on their birthdays but every day of the week. Make her feel loved and extra special by sending her any (or all) of these beautiful and fragrant flowers.

    Sunflowers do take me to a happy place. They’re not typical to find either, so when you do they’re really nice.

    I love flowers but never had a sunflowers bouquet. Also, I like roses and tulips! We had peonies around our old house, I gonna miss them this June.

    Tough to go wrong with roses. But I like having alternative selections and there are many good options here.

    Even if my mom passed away two years ago, I will still get her a bouquet of flowers for her birthday and lay them on her grave. I know she will be looking down from heaven and smiling. She loves red roses. I am going to get her that.

  15. 06/02/2021 / 11:18 am

    I love White Hydrangeas so much, and I even tried to plant some in my garden, but as it tunes out … I am not much of a gardner and they all died, so I’ll stick to buying mine 😀

  16. 06/02/2021 / 10:32 am

    I’m so glad I came across this! My mom’s birthday is in about a month, and I think a big bouquet is going to be on her list of gifts now.

    These are great ideas. I have never been very good at picking out flowers, so this is a great resource for me. Thanks!

    Sadly, I will not be giving my mother any more Mother’s Day gifts. She is no longer with us and I can only hear her in love.

  19. 06/02/2021 / 6:41 am

    I love giving roses to my wife and mother on special occasions. You can never go wrong with roses. However, I’d like to try other flowers, too, so I’m definitely considering your suggestions.
