Mother’s Day is just around the corner – March 14 to be exact – if you don’t already have the date in the diary, and several reminders set. And sadly, it’s going to be a day that most of us won’t be celebrating with one of the most important women in our lives; with lockdown somehow *still* our current reality, unless you live with, or are in a support bubble with your mum, this year you’ll be celebrating her from afar.
Plus, all the usual suspects when it comes to treating her are off the table – no spa day, high tea or theatre show, never mind just popping around for a hug and some tea and cake. Of course, there are a slew of amazing Mother’s Day gift options out there – but we reckon, this year, she deserves a gift that keeps on giving for months to come. Subscription boxes have become popular gifting options over the past couple of years – with everything from coffee to beauty subscriptions becoming available – but the one gift every mum will be happy to keep receiving? Some beautiful blooms.
Fresh flowers in your home are an instant mood booster, and receiving a blossoming delivery is a sure-fire way to make their recipient feel appreciated – and really, is there anyone on the planet that deserves to feel that way more than your beloved mum? Some of our favourite floral delivery companies now have options to keep the love going beyond Mother’s Day with a fresh, beautiful bouquet arriving at mum’s door as often as every week.
Our round-up of the best flower subscription services includes letterbox flowers that your mum doesn’t have to wait around at home to receive, a tulip subscription that will be filled with a different variety of these beauties every delivery and an ethical floral subscription that work directly with farms and Fairtrade growers – so you can treat mum guilt-free. And before you panic at the thought of splurging on a pricey bouquet on an ongoing basis, we’ve found simple but beautiful bunches that start from £20 per monthly delivery – a bargain when you think about all your mum’s done for you, isn’t it?
