Mother’s Day flowers may be a cliche gift, but one I happen to like very much. I never turn down the chance to have beautiful blooms on my front entry table, my night stand, a bookshelf. So I’m so happy to find a new service that makes sending flowers for Mother’s Day–or any day–easy and affordable.
The Bouqs Co. is a smart idea: gorgeous, premium, socially responsible buds straight from the farm, all at a fixed price of $40. If you want to do it up, you can double your order for $50 or triple it for $60. Not bad at all.
The site is super fun to look around. You can shop by color, by sentiment (from big moments to sympathies) or even by flower type if you happen to have a favorite. There are also monthly subscriptions at a 10% discount–something we recommended as a super gift idea in our Mother’s Day gift guide this year. Especially with cheeky titles like Bouq-Tastic Voyage and Bow Chicka-Bow-Bow.
But maybe that last one isn’t for your mom.
The flowers themselves are beautiful and arrive that way too. And while they do ship from South America, which isn’t quite the same as shopping your local farmer’s market, at least they’re sourced from eco-friendly, sustainable farms that provide living wages, childcare, healthcare and education to the workers, and stored for less time to save a lot of energy.
I know for a fact that would make my own mom love these even more. –Liz
