Mother’s Day Gifts Your Mother Actually Wants

The true value of a mother’s love is set above the rate of any precious stone or legal tender. It’s the type of emotion that transcends and persists, regardless of limitations or circumstance. The mother that loves her children will put them before her own desires. For this reason, and for so many more, we honor our mothers on the second Sunday of every May.

Locating that perfect gift for your one-of-a-kind mother is no easy feat. Moms ride a fine line between superheroes and goddesses, and it’s only natural to want to find a gift she will not only cherish but one that she will actually use. In our experience, most of the typical gift offerings associated with this important day are things she already owns or which won’t be good enough for that amazing woman you call mom.

As we approach May 9th, the time has come to think deeply about what you’re going to get for that truly special individual: your mother! One way you can make this Mother’s Day more special than the last is with a bespoke arrangement from Venus ET Fleur® that features our stunning and unforgettable Eternity® Roses. Whether you’re a daughter, a son, or a husband, you’re sure to find among our catalog a Mother’s Day gift that will make her crack a smile. Someone as dedicated and exceptional as your mother deserves only the best.

In this article, we’re going to look at a few amazing gifts which you can use to honor that most special of women and make this Mother’s Day a day fit for a queen.

A Day at the Spa

We have been hard-pressed to find a mother that isn’t supremely delighted to spend a day at the spa. Let’s be honest—she certainly deserves it. Mothers work harder than just about anyone to provide for their families, a job which rarely, if ever, stops. A luxurious spa day is the perfect way to remind your mother—or any mother!—that this is her day to let others take care of her the way she’s cared for you. At Venus ET Fleur, we value self-care, and what better way to embody this notion than with a full day of pampered luxury.

You can buy her a gift certificate to a decadent spa, or take some initiative and make the appointment yourself—especially if yours is the kind of mother who is reluctant to pamper themselves absent outside influence.

Alternatively, provide her with the means to create her own spa day at home. The gift of high-quality bath salts, oils, and our deliciously fragrant Rose Blanche scented candles are all that’s needed for a sufficiently sophisticated experience. The smell of roses, freesia, and hints of geranium are sure to set her mind at perfect ease. For a luxurious spa day bundle, throw together a basket of face masks, lotions, bath bombs, and perhaps a nice bottle of rosé. Our Mother’s Day Gift Guide is also a trove of like-minded suggestions that we encourage you to avail yourself of.

A Tasteful Subscription

In the event that you have a developed sense of your mother’s tastes and inclinations, a thoughtful magazine subscription or subscription box can be a wonderful treat. In the right hands, this gift is like buying a year’s worth of gifts in one. These days, there are hundreds of different services of this kind, featuring everything from clothing and beauty items to wine and luxury foods.

Most of these boxes will give you options as far as customizing the various shipments to the particular tastes of that special lady. In this regard, it pays to do a little research to learn more about the different types of subscriptions available and pick a box that best fits your mother’s style and lifestyle.

If you order your mother a subscription box for Mother’s Day, then we recommend that you order hers well in advance, particularly if you intend to give her the first box in person. The best part about this gift is its potential to last a whole year or more— it’s the kind of gift that will, quite literally, keep on giving.

The Gift of a Clean House

One of the least pleasant parts of being a mother, particularly when there are small children in the equation, is the big mess. If you live with or near your mother, a gift that can pay dividends is the labor of love embodied by cleaning up the home. What better feeling than waking up to a spotless house?

Alternatively, do a little research to find a cleaning service local to her area and book it well in advance. That way, she’ll be able to enjoy the luxury of spending her time however she pleases, all the while knowing that her home is being picked up, polished, and put in flawless order. This way, you give her not only a spotless residence but also the gift of quality time to herself.

Places to Go, People to See

It’s not a surprise to anyone that moms rarely have enough time to do the things they love most, whether that means a night on the town or a trip to a fantastic destination. In either case, one of the best things you can do for your mother this Mother’s Day is to furnish them with the means to take a night, or even the whole weekend, off.

Maybe she dreams of a trip to Europe, or simply a day lounging at home responsibility-free, you know best. If she wants to go out for a splendid meal, you can make dinner reservations and even buy her a nice outfit for the occasion. The possibilities here are endless, so long as you take the time and care to ensure that she’s going places and doing things that she’s always wanted to do but just didn’t have the time for.

A Beautiful, Long-Lasting Flower Arrangement

Who amongst us hasn’t bought their mother flowers for Mother’s Day? If your answer to that question was “me,” then we have some bad and good news for you. Flowers are perhaps the most timeless and essential way to say “I love you,” “I appreciate you,” and so many other things. When buying something for your mother on Mother’s Day, whether they are the centerpiece of your gift or merely an addendum to a larger tribute of affection, you can’t go wrong with flowers.

The month of May provides a wealth of different blooms and bulbs with which to show your mother just how much you care, but at Venus ET Fleur, we encourage you to say it with roses, the most classic and ubiquitous of all flowers in the United States. 

Our radiant and long-lasting Eternity Roses come in a variety of different colors, each of which conveys a range of symbolic meanings. Rose colors and their various associations are a subject we’ve covered at length in the past, and we encourage you to do your homework so as to send your mother the perfect message of love and gratitude.

For the child who wants to truly impress on this Mother’s Day, we urge you to spring for a bold statement piece such as our Le Clair Quinze arrangement, which displays 15 Eternity Roses in a crystal-clear, acrylic vessel. This grand arrangement is perfect for your mother to show off at her office desk or to feature on her nightstand. Classic red or vibrant pink will do the trick quite nicely.

Or, for the mother who favors boldness over all, opt instead for a bouquet of bright orange-colored roses. Either way, she is sure to be amazed by the fragrance and long-lasting integrity of our innovative yet elegant Eternity Roses.

Final Thoughts

All mothers are different, and we prefer to shy away from prescribing one-size-fits-all gift arrangements. Your better taste and judgment are key when it comes to showing your dear mother the love and gratitude she so richly deserves.

Though this is the ultimate day to proclaim your love for your mother, we here remind the reader that there are 364 other great days to appreciate her too, each with its own opportunity to show her how much you really care. All of us at Venus ET Fleur are glad to help you show your appreciation and affection to that beautiful mother, whether she’s your mother, your wife, grandmother, sister, or aunt, or anything in between.

We hope this guide has been a help to you in your admirable search to honor all the mothers in your life this year, whoever they may be.
