Mother’s Day can be a tough time of year for many people, especially those who have lost a parent or who don’t have a good relationship with their mom.
But Mother’s Day doesn’t have to just be about your mother specifically, it can be a celebration of all mothers and women in your life who have helped nurture and support you.
Consider celebrating the following women with Mother’s Day plants.
Another Family Member
Use Mother’s Day to celebrate the other special women in your family. An aunt, grandmother, or even a cousin or sister—all the women in your family are fair game to praise and pamper on this day.
A Mother’s Day plant will show your love long-term.
A Close Friend
Know a friend who is a mom, or who is in your supportive inner circle? Show her you're thinking of her this Mother’s Day with a thoughtful card or gift. For a busy mom, a beautiful Mother’s Day plant like a mini orchid will give long-lasting beauty in her home for months or even years, with minimal maintenance.
If you’re still in touch with any coaches, teachers, or professors from your school days, send them a Mother’s Day note or present to thank them for supporting you and countless others through the years. A Mother’s Day plant is also great for a sunny classroom. A money tree plant symbolizes good luck and fortune. It's a great way to bless someone who has blessed you.
Women in business often don’t get the recognition they deserve—so reach out to a current or former supervisor who helped you along the way. Giving a potted plant for Mother’s Day is a great choice here because it’s the perfect addition to an office or workspace.
We’ve all got a work mom. Leave a card and a gift on her desk to let her know how much you appreciate her.
If you stop for a morning coffee and always see the same barista, let her know that she adds some joy to your day! This can also be applied to a server at your favorite restaurant or anyone else who you see on a regular basis.
Why More People Are Choosing Mother’s Day Plants
While a card and chocolates are an easy go-to, we always think it’s the right time to show you care with a potted plant like Phalaenopsis orchids, money tree, anthurium, and more.
Potted plants are growing in popularity thanks to their long-lasting appearance and easy care. While cut flowers fade within a few days, orchids keep their blooms for up to three months with proper care. They can even bloom again, provided you follow these simple reblooming guidelines.
Your gift will easily show mom (or any of your “other mothers”) that you’ve been thinking of them long after the usual gifts would fade.
Whether you honor your other mothers on Mother’s Day or any day this month, you can make a lasting impression with Mother’s Day plants. Browse our collection to find that perfect gift today!
