Thoughtful Mother’s Day Gifts for Long-Distance Moms
The start of spring means Mother's Day is coming up soon. It's time to plan a special celebration for your mom – is a tasty brunch date in order? However, if you're an adult or college student, chances are your parents live far away and you may not be able to fly to visit them on this special holiday. Don't worry – you can still show your mom that you care. One idea is to send her a bouquet full of her favorite blooms. The arrangement will put a big smile on her face as she receives the gift from miles away. Here are some thoughtful Mother's Day gifts your mom would love to receive:
Purple: Pantone's color of the year is Radiant Orchid. If you aren't sure what hue to feature in your Mother's Day bouquet, use this color as inspiration. An arrangement full of lavender roses, white asiatic lilies and lavender alstroemerias paired with greenery is a gift that can convey the right sentiment to your mother. And when the blooms are placed inside a colored glass vase, she'll have a gift she can reuse for years to come.
Pink: Pink is a popular color for Mother's Day gifts. If your mom loves this hue, send her a large arrangement filled with pink spray roses, asiatic lilies and miniature carnations. These stylish shades of light and dark pinks create a multidimensional gift that will surely make a big impact once they arrive.
Yellow: Another great choice for flowers is an arrangement filled of yellow blooms. This color conveys energy and excitement, which are great emotions to share with a loved one. Gift her a charming bouquet filled with white roses, yellow spray roses, white waxflowers mixed in with green carnations, and green button spray chrysanthemums.
A basket full of seasonal fruit is another great Mother's Day gift. A container of super ripe oranges, apples, pears, strawberries and other seasonal produce is both tasty and thoughtful. You'll also want to find fruit or vegetables that your mother loves, or rare and exotic produce like papayas.
Garden starter kit
You can also give your mother the gift of a hobby. Create a gardening starter kit by adding a variety of seeds to a stylish basket along with gloves and other garden tools. For example, you can add tomatoes, broccoli and asparagus seeds.
