There’s no more perfect gift for Mothers Day than an arrangement or bouquet of her favorite fresh flowers. Whether it's a classic bouquet of roses or a unique arrangement of exotic blooms, flowers have the power to brighten any mother's day and convey the depth of our affection.

And, one of the best things about giving flowers for Mothers Day is that you can choose a bouquet that perfectly suits the special woman in your life and captures her unique personality. You can select a bouquet of her favorite flower, or a mixed floral arrangement in her favorite color. While flowers are loved for their beauty, they’re also richly symbolic.

Roses: A timeless symbol of love and admiration, roses come in various colors, each with its own significance. Red roses convey deep love and passion; pink roses symbolize gratitude and admiration; while yellow roses represent friendship and joy.

Lilies: With their elegant appearance and delicate fragrance, lilies symbolize purity, motherhood, and the renewal of life. Stargazer lilies, with their striking pink and white petals, symbolize ambition and success, making them a wonderful choice for celebrating a mother's achievements. Choose the Watermelon Crush Bouquet for a woman who deserves to feel special, or the Neon Lights Bouquet for the woman whose vibrant personality lights up the room.

Tulips: Tulips are a symbol of perfect love and are often associated with springtime and new beginnings. A bunch of spring tulips bursting with color is a perfect way to show your bonus mom some affection this Mothers Day.

Sunflowers: Sunflowers symbolize gratitude & cheerfulness. Give a sunflower bouquet to show her how she brightens your day. The Luminous Morning Bouquet shines with a bright yellow color palette, while the Catching Rays Bouquet combines yellow sunflowers with blue and purple delphinium for a contrast that pops.

Orchids: Orchids often denote elegance, admiration, and strength and often last years. Find a fitting orchid for your special bonus mom. Choose a white hoop orchid with a “Happy Mothers Day” sign attached, or a colorful pink orchid garden.

Hydrangeas: Hydrangeas are a stunning and popular choice for Mother's Day gifts, thanks to their lush blooms and elegant appearance. These beautiful flowers symbolize gratitude, grace, and heartfelt emotions, making them a meaningful choice for expressing love and appreciation to the special women in our lives. Hydrangeas come in a variety of colors, including white, pink, blue, and purple, allowing you to choose the perfect hue to convey your sentiments. Whether you opt for a classic bouquet of hydrangeas or incorporate them into a stunning mixed arrangement, these versatile flowers are sure to make a memorable impression on Mother's Day.


If your bonus mom loves to fill her home or office with greenery, a lush plant is a perfect way to give her a daily reminder of your appreciation.

From flowering bulb gardens to ferns to money trees, plants offer a lasting and meaningful gift option for Mother's Day, symbolizing growth, nurturing, and enduring love. Unlike cut flowers, plants can thrive for years with proper care. Whether she has a green thumb or is new to gardening, there's a plant perfect for every mother's taste and lifestyle. Here are some popular plant choices and their significance:

Succulents: Succulents have gained popularity in recent years due to their low maintenance and unique beauty. These drought-resistant plants come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors, making them a versatile gift option for any mother or mother-figure. With the gift of a succulent garden, you can show your appreciation with a plant that won’t become a chore.

Peace Lily: Peace lilies are known for their elegant white flowers and glossy green leaves, symbolizing peace, harmony, and tranquility. These easy-to-care-for plants thrive in low-light conditions and are excellent air purifiers, making them a practical and beautiful gift for any mother's home. Peace lilies are also associated with purity and healing, making them a thoughtful choice for wishing your mother happiness and well-being on Mother's Day.

Snake Plant: Snake plants, also known as mother-in-law's tongue, are prized for their striking upright leaves and air-purifying properties. These resilient plants thrive in low-light conditions and require minimal maintenance, making them an ideal gift for busy mothers. Snake plants symbolize resilience, strength, and protection, making them a meaningful choice for expressing your appreciation and admiration for the strong and nurturing women in your life.

Gourmet Gifts

Proflowers does more than just blooms. If your bonus mom is a gourmet or a foodie, she might enjoy a gourmet gift instead! A gourmet gift basket filled with delectable treats such as artisanal chocolates, savory cheeses, and specialty coffees offers a delicious indulgence for the taste buds, allowing your mother or mother figure to savor every moment of their special day.

Is she the life of the party? Send her a bright, fragrant Tropical Fruit Gift Basket in a wicker basket she can reuse. Does she have a sweet tooth? Send her a towering assortment of Mrs. Fields cookies and baked treats, or a luxe selection of Belgian chocolate-covered treats. Proflowers offers a mouth-watering selection of chocolate covered cheesecake bites, cookies, mini donuts, and strawberries for you to choose from. For the foodie, surprise her with a Mothers Day charcuterie board, complete with cheese, turkey sausage, crackers, nuts, desserts and a cutting board, or a Grand Meat and Cheese gift basket filled with assorted cheeses, meats, dried fruit and nuts, and premium quality balsamic vinegar and olive oil.

Gift Baskets

For the woman who cares so much for other people, give her the gift of time for herself. Deliver a spa gift basket brimming with luxurious bath essentials, soothing candles, and indulgent skincare products provides a tranquil retreat for relaxation and self-care. The Lavender Spa Day Gift Basket comes with a pair of slippers, a lavender soap bar, a lavender lotion, a lavender sachet, lavender hand soap, a lavender candle, a loofah, a pumice brush, and a bath bomb. Another way to gift her a moment of quiet relaxation is with a gift of specialty coffees, teas, or a mocktail kit.

If you just can’t decide, you can also send a gift bundle of items, such as the Magnolia Sapling with Lavender Soap and Lotion Duet.

Personal Touches

Your relationship with your bonus mom is special and unique. Including personal touches, such as a handwritten note, alongside a flower delivery or gift basket, adds a heartfelt and meaningful touch to your Mother's Day gift. While the flowers or treats themselves convey your love and appreciation, a personal note allows you to express your sentiments in your own words. Write a heartfelt letter so she knows how much she means to you. In a world filled with digital communication, a handwritten note stands out as a tangible expression of care and affection, making your Mother's Day gift even more special and memorable.
