Flowers for mom: the reliable, no-fail gift that moms love to receive. But there are so many choices and Mother’s Day is getting closer and closer. From the flower lovers here at Bloompop HQ to you, we present you the need-to-know tips for shopping Mother’s Day flowers.

And if you haven’t read our Thoughtful Ways To Surprise Mom This Mother’s Day, check it out for  creative ways to show mom love.

We’d love to see what you have planned! Tag us at @BloompopHQ on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook, whether your plans involve flowers or not.

Think of Mom’s Favorites

Mom will appreciate your gift no matter what color, shape, or size it is. But how about catering to the colors and flowers she loves? Some moms love tulips, while others go gaga for ranunculus flowers. Figure out what colors she loves based on her wardrobe and the belongings she keeps around. Don’t be afraid of ruining any surprise by asking what colors she likes - mom will appreciate your consideration!

For a little self-promo, we love Designer’s Choice for showing mom that extra thought. All you need to do is fill in a few preferences - price point, height, and color. Our trustworthy, hand-selected community of Florist Partners will take care of the rest! Be sure to fill in the comment box before you complete your purchase if you’d like to request any specific flowers (our partners might not have them in stock, but they’ll still make sure to create something beautiful!). Don’t forget to add a card message!

Don’t Think of the Checkout Button as Your Finish Line

One thing moms love after receiving flowers: hearing the voices of loved ones. You picked an arrangement you know she’ll love and she just received her delivery. Now what? Follow up with a phone call, of course!

If she beats you to the phone and gives you a ring, ask her what flowers are in the arrangement!

Order Early!

Perhaps our most essential tip for Mother’s Day flowers is to order early. Since many floral shops won’t be open for business on Sunday, plan ahead to schedule delivery for a different date. Mom will appreciate you working with her schedule. As you can imagine, our Florist Partners will be very busy in the days leading up to Mother’s Day, so it’s best to order early to give our designers plenty of lead time.
