Lilacs are commonly associated with spring and summer, but are not often given as a gift for Mother’s Day. If you want to give something fragrant and filled with charm, then lilacs are a wonderful choice. Creating a layered lilac arrangement is a stunning way to celebrate the season and your one-of-a-kind mom. The soft, lush blooms create an impressive arrangement with very few stems required and they quickly fill any room with their sweet, distinctive scent.


Another unexpected Mother’s Day choice is herbs. People often overlook herbs for bouquets and other flower arrangements, but the fact is that herbs are unique and beautiful just like mom. They also work well when arranged alongside flowers. Each herb has its own distinct color, shape, and often scent so they add an uncommon facet to arrangements. Particularly if you have a foodie mom, an arrangement that includes some herbs is a quirky, fun choice.


There’s not much that’s as cheerful as a big, bold sunflower, except a whole bundle of lively sunflowers. Imagine presenting your bubbly, upbeat mom with a big bundle of sunshine. These beauties work well presented as a singular bloom, grouped together, or added in with other flowers. They give an extra shot of happiness to any space they’re in.

Air Plants

Moms are multi-talented, but not every mom has a green thumb. If your mom loves greenery but doesn’t have a lot of luck with flowers and other plants, then air plants are a wonderful gift option. Air plants require very little care and are awe-inspiring both on their own or incorporated into your unique Mother’s Day flowers. Even once the rest of the bouquet has wilted away, the air plants can be kept as an ongoing gift.


Another wonderful choice for unique Mother’s Day flowers is magnolias. These sizable stunners look incredible presented as a single bloom or bundled with other flowers. While magnolias look rather delicate, they’re actually quite resilient—just like moms. It’s no wonder that this flower is see as a symbol of endurance, eternity and long life.


Imagine presenting mom with an armful of big, billowy puffs of bliss. Hydrangeas come in a range of soft, stunning shades and it doesn’t take a lot of them to make an impact. Even better, among the many meanings associated with hydrangeas are gratitude, thanks to someone else, and heartfelt emotion. What could be better for your caring mom on Mother’s Day?


If your mom has always been a calming presence in your life then a bunch of bluebells might be the right gift for you to give. Their sweet, delicate look is just right for a gentle mom. Said to symbolize constancy and humility, they’re perfect for moms who are always doing for others.
