Sponsored: Mother’s Day is fast approaching in the UK, and flowers are an ever-popular gift.
As if choosing a bouquet wasn’t tricky enough, our busy lifestyles might also be a problem.
What if you can’t make it home to personally hand them over? Or if you want to give your mom something a little more lasting?
And, of course, how do you choose which floral gift is the best for your mom?
Bloom & Wild, the flower delivery company, have got you covered on the first two. Their flowers are specially packed to fit through your average British letterbox, for one. They also offer a whole range of bouquet options.
That doesn’t solve the issue of being spoilt for choice, though, so here are some suggestions on how to let your mom know you’re thinking of her.
1. Go classic
You can’t beat a classic bouquet, really.
Bright colors will cheer everyone right up, even if the dreaded British weather is its usual grey and rainy self.
The the Maisie is an abundance of yellows, pinks and purples – perfect to bring spring into your mom’s home. Or go with the (nearly) all-yellow the Jessie, to send some sunny thoughts for Mother’s Day.
If your mom is more on the elegant side, roses and soft hues might be a better fit.
Like the the Madeleine, with its soft pinks and purples and fragrant foliage, to give it a little extra.
Or, if your mom isn’t to keen on pink, the the Adele’s fluffy peach-and-apricot toned roses, spray roses, and apricot lisianthus might be more of a fit.
And if you can’t make it home for Mother’s Day, they do fit through the letter box – so mom will get a nice surprise.
2. Give a little luxury
Of course, you could always level up your bouquet.
Bloom & Wild have two options for you.
One would be to go for a hand-tied bouquet. They don’t fit through the letterbox, but they’re rather lush and extra-special.
Like the the Cora, in pinks and purples, or the soft peach and white Hand-Tied Adele.
Your other option is a new range of lux letterbox flowers, coming just in time for Mother’s Day.
Like the the Hannah, which features freesia, snapdragons and wildflower foliage in soft lilacs to make every room feel a little more relaxed.
Or, for a real pop of color, the the Anoushka with its hot pink, purple and orange blooms.
3. Swap the vase for a pot
Why does it always have to be a bouquet?
If your mom is a keen gardener – no matter if indoors or outdoors – you could always get her a little potted plant instead.
And yes, believe it or not, Bloom & Wild make those fit through the letterbox, too.
The the Azalea as well as the Rose Plant even come with their own pop-up flower pots, so you’ve covered all bases.
Just like the regular bouquets, they’re wrapped protectively and will arrive in full bloom.
In the case of the roses, your mom will be in for an extra-sweet surprise: they come with a bar of Early Grey Tea and Bergamot organic dark chocolate from Edinburgh-based chocolatiers Coco.
And who can resist that combination?
4. Get her a monthly surprise
If you really want to surprise your mom, repeatedly, why not get her a flower subscription?
With Bloom & Wild’s subscription service, she’ll get a bouquet once a month.
Simply choose between three, six or 12 months, and you’re good to go.
All you then have to do is choose a bouquet each month, add a little personal message, and your mom will receive her surprise.
