Does mom dream of tropical isles and sun kissed foliage? Bunches Flower Co. has a selection of lush floral arrangements that will put her in mind of warmer climes, and of the thoughtful child who came up with this awesome gift. Their Tropical Ginger Vase is filled with bright coral coloured ginger flowers, birds of paradise and lush greenery. Bunches’ Caribbean Delight arrangement is an overflowing display of orchids, heliconia, ginger, palm fronds and more, that bring to mind crystal blue ocean atolls. The Tropical Fun Bunch is a compact basket that is bursting with vividly coloured Fiji mums, gerbera daisies and exotic flowers.
Some people have a way with plants, and enjoy re-purposing living greenery to their own garden. If that sounds like your mum, check out Mayfield Flowers’ blooming plants. How about a showy pink azalea, or a graceful peace lily plant? She can enjoy the showy flowers in her home, then plant them outside, where she’ll be reminded of her favourite child each time the plant bursts into bloom again.
Mayfield Flowers also offers a marvellous selection of arrangements for the mother who appreciates traditional floral beauty. Their Rainbow of Roses is a stately grouping of roses in a spectrum of colours. The Heather Trellis is a basket of gerbera daisies, hydrangea and other springtime flowers that has a whimsical heather vine wrapping around its handle.
Perhaps you’d like to send mom something that lets her indulge her inner gardener, yet not break too much of a sweat in the process. Grower Direct Fresh Cut Flowers can help you out. If she has a green-ish thumb, send her their Herb Planter, which includes a lovely galvanized metal planter, clay pots and seeds to grow oregano, coriander and basil. The Every Day Gardener Premium Gift Basket has herb seeds, gardening gloves, a shovel, a weeder and some yummy fruity treats.
“But my mom already has a house full of flowers and a gorgeous garden.” If that’s your quandary, visit Ellerslie Gift and Garden’s gift shop to find the perfect garden accessory. Located at 10330 Ellerslie Road SW, in Edmonton, this locally owned shop has an extensive inventory and a knowledgeable staff that is ready to help you locate the perfect complement for mom’s garden. If she is exceptionally particular, a gift certificate from Ellerslie will allow her to treat herself!
With those suggestions to act on, or to stoke your imagination, you can procure the perfect Mother’s Day gift. Do remember that, along with a thoughtful gift, a mom’s most wished-for present is time spent with you. Give her the gift while sharing a picnic, or over a leisurely brunch and she’ll feel as extra special as you know she is!
