10 reasons why flowers make the perfect Mother’s Day present

Bright, elegant and beautiful: blooms top our list of gifts for Mum

Trusty blossoms have firmly planted their stem on the hall of gift-giving fame. Here’s why:

1. They smell nice

Forget perfumes, there’s nothing like the fragrance of fresh flowers.

2. They’re pretty

That’s pretty undebatable.

3. They show how much you care

And that’s exactly what Mother’s Day is all about.

4. They brighten up your day even when it’s gloomy outside

We’re not sure what the weather forecast is like for the 21st (or the 26th), but it’s best to prepare for all eventualities.

5. They bring the outside in

Everyone loves nature, especially when it’s in the comfort of your living room.

6. Flowers are the gift that keeps on giving

They can be dried and packed in charming, cheerful jars.

7. There's a flower for every mood (and everyone)

Lilies, red roses, tulips… and that’s just the start.

8. They don’t mind hogging the spotlight

Need a centerpiece for the table? Flowers will lend a helping petal.

9. They make you smile

And that’s what we want mums to do on Mother’s Day.

10. They can be picked up at the last minute

We’re not calling anyone forgetful… but flowers will be there for you in the eleventh hour (just in case).
