If you don't want to opt for the traditional Mother's Day bouquet this year (or, you've gifted them more years than you can count), potted plants are another classic route you can take this time around.
Whether she has a budding garden or is eager to add more greenery to her living space, these florals and faunas are sure to please and are equally as pretty as any arrangement — and they last longer, too. From roses and lilies to orchids and succulents, we've rounded up some special Mother's Day gifts that'll be perfect for the (plant) mom in your life.
P.S. Since Mother's Day is just a few days away, we highly recommend ordering your blooms with express shipping to ensure a timely arrival on her doorstep.
