Nothing quite says “I love you” like a bouquet of fresh flowers delivered on Mother’s Day. And, while we know some mothers might prefer you skip the florals, for those whose mothers can’t help but fawn at a beautiful arrangement, it’s easier than ever to have some bright blooms (or a beautiful potted plant!) sent straight to Mom’s door. There are a slew of online floral delivery services that offer a wide array of both flowers and plants as well as generous delivery timelines — a must, even if we are more than a few weeks out! From lush bouquets to elegant calla lilies, the options are truly endless. Below, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite Mother’s Day finds from the best flower and delivery services guaranteed to help brighten your special lady’s day this Mother’s Day.

Urban Stems is full of vibrant, funky, and stylish arrangements — they even have a section curaged by Vogue editors. For Mother’s Day, we like this sunny bouquet, which will put a smile on anyone's face as soon as they walk in the room. It's colorful and fresh with butterfly ranunculus, as well as some eucalyptus branches to fill out the background and enhance the floral fragrance. Check out the site’s Mother's Day shop for even more gift ideas.

was $44.99 has its own Mother's Day shop featuring featuring lilies, succulents, bonsais, and these elegant calla lilies are our favorite and will suit moms of all stripes. They go through blooming cycles — a few weeks with flowers, then a few weeks without — but the lush green leaves will definitely add a touch of spring indoors. And, unlike a bouquet of cut calla lilies, the potted version will last way longer.

Potted plants are the gifts that keep on giving because they stick around long after Mother's Day is over. This cute eucalyptus plant is super budget-friendly and delivers a lovely aroma. And after it grows out long enough, some of its branches can be clipped off, tied together, and hung in the shower to turn shower time into spa time.

The Bouqs Co.

Forgo pink with this elegant white bouquet that has pops of green to give it some liveliness. The flowers include white snapdragons, roses, lilies, and green mini hydrangeas. Plus, you get a decorative glass vase that can be reused as a vase or watering canister.

Industry leader 1-800-Flowers has an exhaustive Mother's Day shop with tons of beautiful options. We love this pretty peony bouquet that’s delivered in a rustic, wicker vase, and for a much more colorful option, check out their kaleidoscope roses — they're quite the showstoppers! The flowers in this shop can all be shipped by Mother’s Day and many have next-day and same-day delivery.

The Sill

Talk about a stunner! These colorful orchids are such a visual treat and super easy to care for, requiring just bright indirect light and frequent watering — plus, they’re pet-friendly! This one also qualifies for free shipping, saving you a few bucks so you can make sure to get a Mother's Day card, too.

For the mom who loves her plants as much as she loves you, a gorgeous monstera is the way to go. Low maintenance and easy to care for, it’s a bonafide stunner. (Terrain also has quite a few faux plants to choose from, too!) The brand's Mother's Day shop has plenty of plant (and non-plant) gifts to choose from, too.

If Mom is more into plants than petals, Bloomscape’s Mother's Day shop is a great place to find a gift. We’re eyeing this sansevieria that requires very little maintenance, but if Mom has a pet, you might try this adorable ponytail palm that’s safe for nosy pooches.
