    Decide if you're going to pick up flowers in person or order them to her. If you live a distance from your mother, the choice is obvious: get them delivered. If you're close by, you might prefer to choose some flowers in person and hand deliver them. She'll love to see you in person!

    Consider what flowers she'd like. If you know she has a favorite type, the selection is easy, but if not, consider her favorite colors and whether you can pick a bouquet in those hues. If in doubt, a mixed collection of spring flowers is often a good choice.

Method 1
Buying in Person

    Go to a local flower store. Many grocery chains also have a floral section, and depending on the store, you might find good options there. However, if you want the help of the actual florist, it may pay to go to a real flower shop.

    Make your purchase. Most florists will accept a wide range of payment forms. They may also offer fancy vases and other small gift items to go along with your purchase, if you'd like to pay extra for those and up the ante on your gift.

    Write the card and deliver the flowers. If you're taking the bouquet to your mom in person, just be sure to be gentle on the bunch in the meantime, and ideally deliver them quickly. You don't want the flowers to be wilted or battered by the time you get to her!

    Select the arrangement of your choice. Consider also ordering a vase and any add-ons like balloons, stuffed animals, or any other additional gifts. Most flower delivery sites have partnered with top brand names making it possible to send very nice gifts from fancy chocolates, full gift baskets, and teddy!
    • Even though the upgraded vases may seem a little expensive, its worth a couple of extra dollars since the cheapest vase is usually going to be pretty cheap looking. This is especially important if you are having your roses delivered to someone’s workplace where your roses will be judged by any and all coworkers.

    Spend a couple of minutes thinking about what you want your card to say. If you can’t think of anything original to say you can “borrow” something from a greeting card or even a line from a love poem. Your card is your chance to really convey your emotions and why you’re sending these lovely roses in the first place.

    Complete the order form. Make sure you have all your mom's information, including full name and deliver address. Often they will also need a phone number in case the delivery cannot be made or they need to contact the recipient to complete delivery. Have your debit card, credit card, and etc ready to pay.

    Confirm delivery. Give your mom a call on Mother's Day (she'll love to hear your voice!) and wish her a happy Mother's Day. In the process, she's sure to thank you for the flowers; if she doesn't, make sure she received them so that you can go back to the online flower store if she hasn't!
