Our Mother’s Day Gift Guide


1. Purple Orchid (Shop Now)
Nothing says I’m thinking of you quite like a blooming plant that will bring her joy for weeks to come. The popular, pet-safe Phalaenopsis orchid is one of the easiest varieties of orchids to grow as a houseplant. It will rebloom year after year. This particular Purple Orchid comes ready for Mom to enjoy in your choice of ceramic planter with matching saucer. Psst.. if purple isn’t her color, opt for our White Phalaenopsis Orchid instead!


2. The Linum Burgundy Bouquet (Shop Now) Studies have shown even brief exposure to nature - like touching foliage, appreciating flowers, and enjoying natural materials - can elicit an unconscious calming effect. Gift Mom easy-on-the-eyes tranquillity with a dried, sustainable bouquet she can enjoy for years to come. Shop more dried flowers and dried bouquets for Mother’s Day delivery here!


3. Fiddle Leaf Fig (Shop Now)
A houseplant is symbolic of how Mom helped you grow, and can serve as a daily reminder of how much you appreciate her. Opt for a tabletop Fiddle Leaf Fig, or Ficus lyrata, characterized by its broad, vibrant green leaves with prominent veining. Many Mother‘s Days from now, this popular bright light plant will grow into a beautiful indoor tree. Don’t forget to break out the puns for the gift note.


4. The R&R Bouquet (Shop Now)
This DIY floral bouquet kit is inspired by the feeling of pure rest and relaxation – something we could all use.
