Mother’s Day is a big holiday for flower delivery services, so we recommend placing your order sooner than later for a better chance of them arriving in time for Mother’s Day.
Here are 9 of our favorite places to buy Mother’s Day flowers online:
Best for: Completely customized bouquets
Floracracy’s personalized design tool lets you choose the shape, colors, and blooms that express your exact sentiments this Mother’s Day. We recently tested Floracracy as part of our guide to the best flower delivery services and absolutely loved the whole experience.
Our Floracracy bouquets lasted three weeks; longer than any of the other floral arrangements we tested. Though Floracracy is pricier than other services, the blooms stayed lush and vibrant for long enough to make it worth it. Bouquets also come with thoughtful extras like petal pressing books, miniature sheers, and information on the meaning of different flowers.
Floracracy doesn’t offer same-day delivery, but every package includes overnight priority shipping in the price.
Best for: Farm-fresh, playful arrangements
All bouquets from Farmgirl Flowers are unique combinations of in-season blooms. Instead of choosing a specific bouquet, you select one of three sizes and the company creates an arrangement based on what’s available.
When we tested this service, the wildness of the bouquets made us feel like we had ventured out and picked the flowers ourselves. The Midi and Maxi arrangements arrived similarly sized, but the Maxi had closed buds that opened after a few days to create a fuller appearance.
Farmgirl is now offering delivery windows, two day blocks of possible arrival dates, instead of specific times. This is to counter COVID-19 and extreme weather delays. For Mother’s Day, order in advance to ensure your flowers arrive on time. When we received a Farmgirl bouquet, it lasted for 10 days, so it may be better to plan for a pre-Mother’s Day delivery.
Best for: A well-curated selection and really nice gift pairings
UrbanStems not only has a beautiful selection of floral arrangements and live plants, but the site also offers small gifts that perfectly complement the bouquets. Curated pairings make thoughtful Mother’s Day gifts, like the Taurus gift set which includes an orchid in a ceramic pot as well as a box of artisanal chocolates. You can also pick a bouquet you love and choose to throw in some small add-ons (like Sugarfina gummies and Tocca hand lotions) at checkout.
With bouquets starting around $45, UrbanStems prices aren’t the cheapest on this list. But, between the sustainable practices, fresh blooms, thoughtful gifts, and optional but gorgeous vases, it’s worth the price in our experience.
If your mom really loves flowers, you can treat her to an UrbanStems subscription, so she can receive fresh flowers on a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly basis. Typically, UrbanStems offers next-day delivery Tuesday through Saturday in the continental US and same-day delivery for those in the NYC and DC metro areas.
Best for: Affordable arrangements that come with vases
Florists’ Transworld Delivery (FTD) has been delivering flowers since 1910, so you can trust that they know how to put together a nice bouquet. You can also get succulents, chocolates, and other gifts delivered through the same site, making it a one-stop-shop for Mother’s Day. The site also has a really wide selection of plants, from in season blooms to bonsai and bamboo trees.
FTD ships anywhere in the US, offering same-day delivery for some arrangements (others come from FedEx or UPS). Because so many people order flowers on Mother’s Day, it’s best to do so in advance to ensure yours will arrive on time.
Ode à la Rose
Best for: Chic, Parisian-inspired bouquets
Ode á la Rose was founded by two Parisian bankers. After moving to New York, they realized the flower selection was not up to par with what they saw every day in France. So, the two started a flower delivery service making bouquets the French way in New York City.
Flower choices are seasonal and bouquets are elegantly arranged, often with no more than three floral varieties to keep things simple. The bouquets are hand-tied (you can see a step-by-step of the process here) and then they’re ready to go. The end result is a balanced, minimalist, and chic bouquet that will look great anywhere.
Ode à la Rose offers same-day flower delivery to NYC, Chicago, and Philadelphia. Next-day flower delivery is available in many cities in the Northeast and the Midwest. You can search by ZIP code to see if Ode á la Rose ships to your desired destination.
Best for: Subscriptions that deliver fresh flowers every week or month
BloosmyBox is mainly a subscription service, but there is a wide selection of one-time purchases as well. Each bouquet is shipped when flowers are still buds so that they bloom before your eyes and last longer.
While many options on this list have subscription offerings, the BloomsyBox subscription service is probably the most robust. It’s the bread and butter of the brand, so there are multiple options to choose from for your flower-loving matriarch. BloomsyBox flowers are sourced from Fair Trade farms all around the world.
You can choose from monthly or weekly subscriptions, with options to prepay for up to a year. The cheapest subscription costs $39.99 a month, but prices vary based on a few factors, like the fullness of the bouquet and if you choose to prepay. Free shipping is always included. All plans auto-renew, but you can cancel or skip a month online at any time.
Best for: Wide selection and affordable arrangements
While the name may make it sound like a retro call-in service, 1-800-Flowers is a reputable option for getting nice floral arrangements to your loved ones around the country.
Because it’s a larger company, you can expect a broad selection with hundreds of different flower arrangements, as well as teddy bears, chocolates, and other small gifts. You can also find houseplants and succulents. There are farm-fresh flower options, but not as many as offered on some of the other sites.
Some arrangements are available for same-day delivery, but your choices may be limited depending on location. You’ll find many more options with next-day delivery. If you’re aiming to get flowers in time for Mother’s Day, definitely order ahead. 1-800-Flowers makes it easy with options to order online or on the company’s mobile app.
The Bouqs Co.
Best for: Farm to table flowers straight from eco-friendly farms
The Bouqs Co. sources fresh flowers directly from eco-friendly farmers, who minimize waste, recycle water, and use sustainable growing practices. You can even see a picture of the farmer, a map of where the flowers came from, and a video of the farm along with your order. Bouqs also works with local florists to create one-of-a-kind, artisan arrangements. Your selection will be based on what florists are available near you.
If your mom loves flowers, you could even spring for a Bouqs Co. subscription. If you choose this model you’ll save 30% and get free shipping on your orders. You can also customize your plan to change the recipient of the deliveries each month.
Delivery dates vary for each bouquet. Bouqs makes it easy to see the earliest available ship date for its bouquets, so you should get a good sense of when to order, but as with all delivery services, we’d say the earlier you place your order the better.
Best for: Easy ordering and Prime two-day delivery
If you already have an Amazon Prime account, ordering Mother’s Day flowers on the site will be very easy. Prime’s fast two-day shipping applies even to fresh bouquets for Mom. Some arrangements come in their own glass vases and even have free next-day shipping. Others, like the Benchmark Bouquets Signature Roses and Alstroemeria, are shipped in bud form for optimal vase life.
Unlike the other sites on this list, Amazon is home to different floral vendors, so not everything will be packaged and delivered exactly the same way. The positive is that there is a wide variety of styles and price points to peruse. You’ll also want to read the fine print when choosing a bouquet since every vendor has different shipping and delivery information.
Check the “This is a gift” box at checkout to include your own note to Mom.
