There are many reasons why flowers on Mother’s Day are a wonderful gift but the main one for me is the joy those flowers bring to someone, especially a mother that is living alone for a variety of reasons. A bouquet from The Bouqs will bring her a constant reminder of the love of her family.

I lost my mother in 2015 and am facing Mother’s Day without her. When I think of the things that brought her joy in the last 10 years of her life (after we lost my dad) I think of the love of her grandchildren. There wasn’t an occasion that her many grandchildren didn’t shower her with flowers for her birthday or Mother’s Day. The pleasure that was hers on those days (that spread into a week or longer) made her glow. We’d ask what she needed for those occasions and there wasn’t really anything. How many purses or sweaters or fragrances can you buy a woman in her 90’s? Her grandchildren (my kids and my nieces and nephews) live in several states but they could send Grandma a bouquet of beautiful flowers like these from The Bouqs.com.
I’d get a phone call when flowers arrived, since she always needed help opening the package, so I saw her pleasure that had started the minute the flowers were delivered, to my opening them and getting down a vase, to the loving way she arranged them in a vase. My mom had a way with plants and nurtured them; she always would get such long use out of the flowers in her bouquet by rearranging and keeping them properly fed and watered.
If I had a wish this Mother’s Day it would be to send her a bouquet from The Bouqs.com since I know how much they’d mean to her. Don’t think of flowers like these as a last minute gift. Think of them as a loving and thoughtful gesture since she’d be receiving flowers that were chosen for her, delivered fresh, and will bring a smile to her face and a lilt to her heart for days after.
One of the reasons The Bouqs.com is unusual is that you won’t find the same arrangements every time you look. They have a farm in California where they grow their flowers so the variety and types change as the weather changes and as the flowers grow. These aren’t grown in greenhouses, they are grown in nature. The Bouqs.com brings you the best of the best from Mother Nature. Some areas have Next Day Delivery but not all. Delivery is free and will arrive on the day of your choice between Tuesday and Friday. When you order they’ll ship the next day from their California coast farms to your recipients door. Almost any time you look at their website you’ll see new varieties of flowers to enjoy.
Here are some current choices:
BBQ’N is very special and one I know my mother would have loved. This particular bouquet was put together to help the people in Equador after the devastating earthquake. Buy this 24 rose with accents bouquet ($50) and 10% of the proceeds from these sustainable, eco-friendly roses will go towards the Ecuadorian Red Cross (http://www.cruzroja.org.ec), helping with Disaster Relief and families displaced by the earthquake.
Wild About U is one I’d love because it’s so unique. Surely not one their competitors would send. This contains a mixed bouquet featuring a succulent and alstroemeria, solidago, aster and more. As with all their bouquets this comes in a variety of sizes but my favorite is this $40 version. I’d have it around for weeks since the succulents will last as will the alstroemeria since they’d arrive in bud form.
Here’s my journey with The Bouqs.com:
As you can see I enjoyed my flowers for a week. Even after some of them were ready to be tossed there was a way to rearrange their beauty to make my kitchen look springy and fresh.
I was so pleased with The Bouqs.com and the flowers and I recently bought a voucher for one through Living Social to treat myself or my daughter-in-law. This is who I’ll turn to when flowers make the perfect gift, which they often do.
There is so much to say about their sustainability, philosophy, and freshness but I’ve kept you long enough. Their website not only is easy to order from but is rich with the information you want to know. No matter the occasion, The Bouqs.com will be ready to deliver delightful, unique, fresh flowers. — Marcia
