Forget the 21st of June for a moment. What’s more important presently is the 14th of March – Mother’s Day, to be precise. Although you may currently be deliberating between Mother’s Day hampers, enviable beauty products and jewellery that you are in fact purchasing for yourself in terms of gifts, there’s one that will never fail to impress: flowers.
Flowers are joyful things. While it would be nice to present your mum – or stepmother or grandma or aunt or whoever nurtures you as a mother should – with a bouquet yourself this Mother’s Day, that’s not really an option in lockdown. What you can do, however, is purchase her a bouquet via one of these online flower delivery services. Say it with flowers indeed.
No one in their right mind would turn their nose up at a bouquet from Sage of Peckham – least of all your mum. While their Mother’s Day arrangement with national delivery has now sold out, London matriarchs can still get their fix via the website. And some even come with added gifts.
If your mum is based in London and you’d like to support a burgeoning business composed of a single member of staff, we recommend Sid’s Flowers. Affordable and sustainable, who says you need a massive bouquet to demonstrate affection?
This year, the Mother’s Day collection at My Lady Garden is inspired by ABBA. Before you get locked into an internal debate about what your favourite ABBA song is, we should also inform you that the ‘MAMMA MIA’ and ‘SUPER TROUPER’ bouquets are available for delivery nationwide (but the best ABBA song is ‘One Of Us’).
Normally, Calluna create the sort of extravagant floral arrangements that are typically reserved for press events. Since those aren’t happening at the moment, these will just have to be placed in your own home instead. Or you mum’s, should you choose to be so kind.
