Make it personal
A personal touch doesn’t even make the list - it gets its own mention. It’s a simple touch where the small things make a huge difference. Sibling rivalry is a thing at LVLY. A personalised flower jar that says ‘From your favourite son’ ‘Love, your first born’ are just some suggestions to personalise a flower jar for mum. It’s what that jar represents that means the most. The way that jar can be taken from home to office, to be used as a pen holder, or filled with lollies. And everywhere it goes, because it’s been personalised, it’s really hard to throw out. It even survives moving interstate, because it’s not the jar they’re keeping, it’s the memory. Get our drift? A personalised Mother's Day gift doesn’t have to include fancy embossing on a leather bag or engraving on a gold necklace. It’s just about keeping it real, making it funny or sweet.
Want an easy sentimental idea for Mother’s Day with no-fuss? This one is perfect for mums and mother-in-laws. A personalised picture + flowers bundle has maximum effect for very little effort. It’s as simple as uploading a picture online and they’ll receive flowers + a polaroid picture. Nowadays we’re famously known for taking 50,000 photos and happily handing our money over to Apple to upgrade our iphone storage plan, knowing full well we’ll never print any of our photos. With this bundle, now’s your chance to share a memory that they can stick on their fridge or stick it in their wallet!
What to get a new mum
Being a new mum is really freaking hard, no need to sugar coat this brand new world you’re thrust into and the pressures of keeping a little human alive and thriving when all you want to do is fall asleep. Maybe just two minutes of sleep. There might be friends who are expecting or a new mum who has just delivered a bundle of squishy joy. The Take 5 LVLY bundle was created to give them the unboxing experience of a sigh of relief. The gift to remind them they’re doing an amazing job and that it really does take a village. If you know a new mum celebrating their first Mother’s Day this year, or there’s a baby on the way, this one’s for them. It’s got bath salts, lactation cookies that actually taste good and loose leaf organic tea. Let’s not forget about the flowers, because life is also about taking care of yourself and taking time to stop and smell the roses (pun intended).
All the single ladies
Not the Beyonce song, single-stem flowers. There’s disbuds and carnations, roses and snapdragons, lisianthus our florists pick. If you know an aunty or a motherly figure that loves fresh flowers in their home, there’s really no way to go wrong with our single stem range. If you know their favourite flower and it just happens to be one in our list, we’re pretty damn chuffed we can deliver these same-day across the Country for your loved one.
Lizzo or Grace Kelly?
Our largest bunches are big, bold and bountiful - the kind of bunch you want to send someone where their only reaction is picking up their jaw off the floor. Blushing Beauty is a glorious display of flowers in different shades of pink, filled with a stunning and generous seasonal arrangement of locally grown flowers, with 30 premium flower stems including luxury roses, snapgragons and carnations. If Blushing Beauty was a celebrity, think of Lizzo, cheerful and full of good vibes. Timeless Classic reminds us of clean and crisp fresh linen. If Timeless Classic was a celebrity, think of Grace Kelly or Princess Di - elegant and full of style and grace.
A word on those who’ve experienced loss
Mother’s Day can be an incredibly tough and isolating time for those who are grieving their mum. It can be hard to know what to say to support someone, and we can often fall into the trap of not saying anything which isn’t always helpful. The best thing you can do is acknowledge their mum’s absence and validate their feelings. To help with this, Motherless Daughters Australia has popped together some useful tips.
