FRESH and Festive: Flowers for Mom

Mother’s Day is one of the first occasions that many of us learn the joy of giving gifts to others. Don’t you remember watching proudly as Mom or Grandma opened that clumsily wrapped coffee mug you paid for with your own allowance, or as they displayed the bunch of dandelions you’d gathered in the front yard?

Naturally, I think flowers make a great gift for any occasion, especially Mother’s Day. But because I know how important it is for everyone to be able to honor their mom, we’ve made sure we have great gift ideas on hand for every budget – whether you’re saving up from a $1-a-week allowance or you have, well, a bit more cash than that. My favorite ideas for moms this spring:

$5-10 budget
Our bud vases are just $6; you can include one or two of Mom’s favorite blooms, such as a snapdragon ($1.29) or spray roses ($1.29) and still be under that $10 limit.

If you have your own favorite vase at home to use, you can pick out a bigger spray of flowers, like tulip bunches ($7.99) or Gerbera daisies (5 stems for $5). Our designers will wrap your selection beautifully in tissue paper and raffia, ready for gift-giving.

$15-35 budget
Many of our professionally arranged bouquets fall in this price range; choose from tropicals, spring blossoms, or bouquets featuring gorgeous roses. If you don’t see Mom’s favorite blooms in an arrangement, you can select a few of your choices and have one of our experts put together a custom-designed bouquet that suits your taste and budget.

$40 budget
Our designers are creating three unique arrangements for our advertised Mother’s Day bouquets.  Full of lilies, roses, and orchids in shades of pink, these are beautiful AND take the guesswork out your purchase decision!

$60-$100 budget
In this range, you can treat mom to a gift-basket splurge. These pre-wrapped baskets feature many great products sold at FRESH, and each has a theme so you can match to Mom’s great loves. favorites. The Café Break, for instance, is a cluster of select teas, coffees, chai, cocoas and Italian Torani beverage syrups. Bit of Britain features shortbread, teas, and a colorful ceramic teapot. The “foodie” basket is stuffed with delicacies like rosemary-flecked sea salt and Stonewall Kitchen jams. And there are baskets for the grilling enthusiast, chocolate lover or Italian-cuisine experts.

These gifts are no hand-picked bunch of dandelions, for sure. But we promise your mother will be delighted nonetheless.
