11 Mother’s Day Flower Delivery Services That Are Cleverly Approved

If you’re not able to hug your mom IRL this Mother’s Day, you can still show her you care with a fresh bouquet (or, dare we suggest, a potted plant!) that is worthy of his greatness. No two mother figures are the same, so doesn’t yours deserve better than a standard bouquet of roses? Plus, it’s safe to say this Mother’s Day is going to be unlike any other, and it’s likely to need a creative pick-me-up more than ever. Whether she loves classic farm-fresh flowers or spectacularly styled centerpieces, we’ve got 11 flower delivery services to help you find the perfect flora for her.

With COVID-19 delivery restrictions in place and many florists closed at the moment, you may want to play it safe and order well in advance, and be sure to check delivery times to ensure your gift will arrive by Sunday, May 10.
