Mother’s Day Flower Tips for Dads

Dads and kids traditionally give mom flowers for Mother’s Day. Not only are they easy to buy, almost everyone loves flowers. They can be cheap or expensive, but always say that you didn’t forget her on this special day. There are literally hundreds of on-line shops to help you get flowers to your mom on-time. Comparison shopping is always a good idea since prices can differ widely including the price of a vase. We’ve had good luck with ProFlowers.com and 1-800-Flowers. Here are some tips for buying Mother’s Day flowers:

  1. Skip the vase – most women have plenty of vases at home and usually prefer to arrange their own flowers in their own vase. You know your mom or partner though, so add a vase if you know she would prefer to have something already set up. Vases make a nice presentation, and are preferable if you’re sending your flowers to an office or hospital.

  2. Order to arrive the day before Mother’s Day – you can usually save 10% or more by delivering just one day earlier, or even the Friday before if you are having your flowers shipped. It’s fun to get flowers exactly on “the day” if accompanied by a visit, but flowers are always appreciated, no matter when they arrive.

  3. Don’t forget the kids – kids love to give mom something special and it’s easy for you to pick up an extra rose or tulip for the kids to give mom in a bud vase, perhaps served with breakfast in bed.

  4. If your mom or spouse is the economical type, buy a plant or go to a gardening shop and buy a plantable flower bush or tree. Of course, that means a little more labor for you on this Sunday, but might be a hit.
