Don’t get us wrong — we absolutely adore giving (and receiving!) flowers. But isn’t it safe to say that a pretty bouquet for Mothers’ Day isn’t the most inventive of gifts? Sure, a pack of peonies is pure splendor. And the sweet scent of long stem roses wafts wonderfully to our noses. But we’d like Mom’s gift to be a touch more thoughtful this year. We’re looking for something that’s as refreshing as a pocketful of posies, but a bit more unexpected. Here’s our roundup of floral-inspired gifts for Mothers’ Day.
