When Is Mother’s Day in Australia?

In 2024, Mother’s Day will be celebrated on the second Sunday of May, which falls on May 12. So, mark your calendars and celebrate the extraordinary women in your life with the best Mother’s Day gifts that will make her feel cherished and appreciated.

Popular Flowers for Mother’s Day

With the right flowers, you can convey a heartfelt message that reaches your mum’s heart. Here are some of the most popular Mother’s Day flowers that are sure to make her smile:

Traditionally associated with Mother’s Day, carnations symbolise love, admiration, and affection. These blooms come in various colours, each carrying its own meaning. Pink carnations represent a mum’s love, while white ones symbolise pure love and beauty.

Classic and timeless, roses are more than just for romantic occasions. They are also ideal Mother’s Day flowers to express your appreciation for your mum or motherly figure.

Exotic and enchanting, orchids never fail to mesmerise with their intricate beauty and graceful allure. As a symbol of elegance, orchids are a sophisticated choice to celebrate the strength of mums who inspire us with their resilience and grace.

These star-like flowers aren’t just stunning to behold—they also hold a special meaning that captures the spirit of Mother’s Day. With their graceful blooms and fragrant scent, lilies embody the unconditional love and nurturing care that mums shower upon us.

Their vibrant blooms and elegant petals make tulips a beautiful floral gift for your mum this Mother’s Day. Whether you choose a bouquet of pink tulips to express your affection and good wishes or red tulips to express deep love, each bloom carries a heartfelt message fitting for the occasion.

Why Flowers Are the Perfect Mother’s Day Gift

This Mother’s Day, there’s no gesture more timeless than giving your mum the gift of flowers. Here’s an interesting Mother’s Day fact: Australians spent up to $200 million on flowers for Mother’s Day in 2017. Flowers are among the best gifts for Mother's Day, and here are a few reasons why:

1. Flowers are tangible expressions of love

They say pictures say a thousand words, but flowers speak volumes in their own right. Each bloom carries unique meanings and conveys sentiments that words alone often cannot adequately express. By selecting flowers with meaningful symbolism, you can communicate your feelings with depth and clarity.

2. They are symbols of life and birth

Flowers are a beautiful reminder of the most precious gift our mums gave us—birth and life. Just as our mums have nurtured us and given us the gift of existence, flowers serve as a poignant metaphor for growth and transformation as they bloom into their full beauty.

3. You can personalise your floral gift

With a myriad of flower varieties and arrangements to choose from, you can personalise your gift to reflect your mum’s unique personality and preferences. There are also several add-ons you can consider to enhance your floral gifts, such as wine, chocolates, or gourmet treats. 

4. Flowers can be cherished keepsakes

Although flowers eventually wilt, their beauty can still be preserved and cherished even after Mother’s Day has passed. Whether pressed in a book, dried for display, or immortalised in a photograph, the beauty of your floral gift serves as a lasting reminder of the love and appreciation shared on Mother’s Day.

How to Personalise Your Mother’s Day Gift

Personalising your Mother’s Day gift adds a heartfelt touch that truly shows your sentiments for your mum. Here are some simple and creative ways to make your gift truly memorable and unique:

1. Add a handwritten note

Skip the quick chat or text and take the time to craft a handwritten card that goes with your floral gift. If you can’t seem to find the proper words to say, explore some heartfelt Mother’s Day messages that can warm her heart.

2. Pair with personalised gifts

Tailor the gift to her interests and preferences. If she has a sweet tooth, consider adding a box of chocolates to sweeten your gesture. For an extra touch of luxury, consider adding a bottle of her favourite wine. A beautifully arranged Mother’s Day bouquet complemented by her favourite items will create a truly unforgettable experience.

3. Choose her favourite flowers

Select blooms with special significance to her to have a mesmerising floral arrangement that reflects her unique personality and style. Incorporating her favourite flowers ensures that your gift resonates with her heart and brings a radiant smile to her face.

Caring for Mother’s Day Flowers

Keep your floral gift vibrant and beautiful even after Mother’s Day with these simple care tips:

  1. Trim the stems at an angle under running water. This helps the flowers absorb water more effectively and prevents air bubbles from forming in the stems.

  2. Keep the leaves from being submerged in the water to prevent bacterial growth.

  3. Use fresh, room-temperature water and add flower food if necessary. Change the water every 2-3 days to keep it clean and clear.

  4. Keep the flowers away from direct sunlight, heat sources, and drafts.

  5. Remove any wilted or spent flowers from the arrangement to encourage the remaining blooms to thrive.

Carnations are widely recognised as official flowers of Mother’s Day due to their symbolism for love, specifically a mum’s eternal love for her children. Their association with Mother’s Day can be traced back to the early 1900s when Anna Jarvis distributed 500 stalks of carnations to all mums in honour of their love and sacrifices.
