The best Mother’s Day flowers by post
With many of us unable to see loved ones in person at the moment, it's important to show mum just how much we love her this Mother’s Day. Beautiful blooms delivered to the door are a great place to start, so here are our deputy lifestyle producer Emily’s top pick of the bunch!
Best for the letterbox - Bloom & Wild
One of the first brands to master postal flowers that fit through the letterbox, unharmed! The Bloom & Wild range is ever-growing (my favourite is the Spring Meadow) and their ‘bud to bloom’ ethos makes the flowers longer lasting too.
The Spring MeadowFrom £23, Bloom & Wild
Best for presentation - Haute
The creators of the Hat Flower Box (55 roses in a cute round container) have taken floral presentation to the next level with their Mother’s Day collection. Whether they come in a sleek sleeve, a basket or even a welly (the Wellington Planter is the perfect gift for garden-lovers) there’s a unique bunch of blooms for every mum.
Mum’s Meadow Basket£35, Haute
Best for colourful classics - Bunches
Not for the floral faint hearted - Bunches’ blooms are guaranteed to brighten up any room in the house. From pastel pink arrangements to bright blue bouquets, this one is your colourful pick me up. And if you prefer to go green, the brand has a selection of houseplants to choose from as well.
Pink Confetti£21, Bunches
Best for adding something extra - Moonpig
This one-stop shop for procrastinators has it all - flowers included! Moonpig’s selection of roses, lilies and tulips are very reasonably priced, and they also have a letterbox range to contend with their fellow online florists. While you’re there, you may want to have a look at their food and drinks hampers too...
The Mother’s Day Bouquet£30, Moonpig
Best for hand-tied bouquets - Appleyard London
This smaller London based company (they deliver UK wide - don’t worry) is all about the detail with their beautifully unique hand-tied bouquets. For something seasonal and special, their 100 Daffodils Mother’s Day bouquet is the bright yellow boost that we all need right now!
100 Daffodils£25.99, Appleyard London
Best for dried blooms - Happy Blossom
If you’re looking to give something that will last a little longer - this is for you. With their ever-lasting (no watering) appeal, dried flowers are on the rise and no one does it better than Happy Blossom. The bold and bright colours are sure to make mum smile - the proof is in the name!
Baked Blossom Collection£32, Happy Blossom
Best for ethical subscriptions - Arena Flowers
It’s the gift that keeps on giving! Arena Flowers offers a range of three-month subscription plans, so you can serenade mum every week, fortnight or month. They also win brownie points for environmental and ethical efforts - for each subscription sold, £1 goes to Women’s Aid and one tree is planted in a country suffering deforestation.
Three-Month Subscription£60, Arena Flowers
Best for low budget (and chocolate!) - Next
Fashion, furniture and now flowers! I was really impressed to discover the range of affordable flowers from Next (most bunches of 10-12 stems are between £20 and £30). Next-day delivery and a selection of letterbox blooms with sweet treat add-ons as well offers an appealing and stress-free option.
