Tips for Choosing the Perfect Gift

Choosing the perfect present for your mum may be daunting, but it doesn’t have to be difficult. Here are some tips to help you pick the perfect gift that will make her feel cherished:

1. Consider her interests and preferences

Take note of what your mum likes. Does she adore vibrant, bold colours or soft, pastel hues? Are there any specific flower varieties she prefers? Understanding her floral preferences allows you to select a bouquet or arrangement that truly resonates with her taste and personality.

2. Personalise the gift

Nothing beats a gift that has a special and unique touch. If she has a sweet tooth, you can indulge her with a floral gift and add on a box of premium chocolates. For an extra touch of luxury, consider adding a bottle of her favourite wine to complement the enchanting blooms. Whatever her interests may be, adding a personal touch to your gift shows thoughtfulness and effort, making it truly unforgettable for your mum.

3. Factor in the presentation

A well-presented, thoughtfully designed flower arrangement not only enhances the overall aesthetic appeal of your gift but also conveys the depth of your sentiment. Pay special attention to the presentation of your floral gift, from the type of vase to the accompanying accents. 

A front-facing arrangement focuses on flowers positioned to face forward, ideal for single-view displays. An all-around arrangement creates a visually striking display from all angles, making it perfect for placement in the centre of a room or on round tables. Both require careful attention to vase choice, flower selection, and accompanying accents for maximum presentation impact.

4. Ask for input from siblings or family members

If you’re unsure about which bouquet or arrangement to get your mum, consider asking your siblings or other family members for input. They may have valuable insights or suggestions that can help you choose a floral gift that she’ll love. 

Let Your Gift Speak Louder Than Words This Mother’s Day

Show your appreciation for your mum’s unwavering love and support by selecting a thoughtful and heartfelt present that reflects her unique personality and style. Whether it’s a stunning bouquet of her favourite flowers, a floral arrangement she can adore for a long time, or a more personalised gift, the key to making Mother’s Day special is making her feel loved, cherished, and celebrated.

On this special occasion, let Interflora™ Australia be your partner in creating a gift that truly matters. With each floral gift handcrafted with love and delivered with care, you can make this Mother’s Day unforgettable for your mum, because she deserves nothing less.

6. Which flower is traditionally given the most on Mother's Day?

Carnations are traditionally associated with Mother’s Day and the virtues of motherhood such as purity, love, and admiration.  Its history traces back to the early 1900s when Anna Jarvis distributed 500 stalks of carnations to all mums to honour their love and sacrifices. In Christian tradition, carnations are also said to have bloomed from Mary's tears as she watched her son, Jesus, carry the cross, symbolising a mother's profound love for her child.
