Gift Guide: Ideas to Send Mum for Mothers Day

Mother’s Day gives the perfect opportunity to celebrate the amazing work our mums do for us and let them know how much we appreciate them. But it can be hard to find that perfect Mother’s Day gift that expresses just how much you love her. Not to mention, that the gift also needs to match the taste of the special lady in your life - whether she’s your mum, grandma, aunt, wife or mother-in-law.

Here's where Best Blooms, Auckland’s most sought-after local florist can help.

We’ve asked the lovely mums of the Best Blooms team to list down the best flowers and bouquets for mums and share their motherly wisdom on what gift baskets work best. So, read on to see some ideas to spoil your mum with this Mother’s Day.

The Best Mother’s Day Flowers and Gifts In NZ

1. The Best Budget-Friendly Mother’s Day Flowers

If you’re looking for cheap Mother’s Day flowers, then this is one of our most popular affordable gift options for you. At just $79, Mum will receive a flowering cyclamen plant, delicious Rocky Road chocolate clusters from NZ made Donovans Chocolates and a "Mum" Balloon.

Cyclamens are very easy to look after houseplants and are a bulb (actually they are a corm) which means they can flower every year. Perfect to enjoy for a few months inside while flowering and then Mum can plant the cyclamen plant outside to enjoy it year after year.  
All our house plants come with specific care instructions, so your mum will know how to tend for her new houseplant.

Want to add a little something extra to this gift? You can add a yummy chocolate heart for $4.90 or a gourmet Bennetts of Mangawhai Chocolate Bar for $7.50. Have something special to say to your mum? How about writing it down in a keepsake gift card valued at $6.90?
