Mother's Day Gifts Your Mother Actually Wants

Finding the perfect gift for your mother on Mother’s Day is no easy feat. Your mom is like a superhero, and you want to find something that she will not only love, but that she will actually use. Unfortunately, most of the gifts you find on Etsy or Amazon are most likely something she already owns or won’t be good enough for this amazing woman you call your mother or mother-in-law.

This Mother’s Day, don’t settle for anything less than the best. At Venus ET Fleur®, we take the tradition of buying your mother flowers on Mother’s Day to the next level. Our Eternity® Roses are made with real roses that last up to a year with proper care, allowing your mother to enjoy them day after day for months on end. We have a seemingly endless number of ways that you can customize your arrangement to create the perfect gift for the mother in your life. Browse our Special Collections to view some of our favorite arrangements, and place an order at Venus ET Fleur today for the perfect personalized gift!

Long-Lasting Gifts Your Mother Will Love

Subscription Box 

A subscription box may not seem like the most personal of Mother's Day gift ideas, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t something that your mother will enjoy. The great thing about buying your mom a subscription box for Mother’s Day is that it’s like buying a year’s worth of gifts all in one! There are hundreds of different subscription boxes available, featuring anything from clothing and skincare items to snacks and wine. Most boxes give you the option of ordering a single box, or you can purchase a few boxes as a gift.

Do some research to learn more about the different types of boxes available, and pick a box that best fits your mother’s style, lifestyle, or favorite pastimes! If you plan to order your mother a subscription box for Mother’s Day, then it’s best to order it in advance so that you can give her the first box in person. The best part about this gift is that your mother will continue to receive boxes for as long as many months as you want to give her — it’s the gift that keeps on giving!

A Day at the Spa

No mother is going to turn down a wellness day at the spa, and let’s be honest, she definitely deserves one. Mothers work hard day and night to provide for their children, and the job of a mom doesn’t stop once her children are adults. This Mother’s Day, instead of letting her pamper you, flip it around and give her a gift where she will be able to let go and relax. You can buy her a gift certificate to a luxurious spa or go ahead and make the appointment yourself, especially if you know that she will never get around to making the appointment on her own.

Want to make your mother’s self-care day even more special? Nothing says relaxation like the comfy Venus ET Fleur® luxury robe. This soft and comfortable robe is sure to become your mom’s new favorite item, and it’s perfect for wearing at the spa!

Accentuate this luxurious atmosphere with our unparalleled Nue Tuberose scented soy and coconut candle. Its sumptuous, soothing fragrance strengthens the mind and enhances the mood. It rules and honors the silence of twilight and can be used to amplify meditation, rituals, and spiritual gatherings. If you think this is a gift she will really enjoy, we encourage you to make your own DIY version with a more personalized scent, using essential oils for the ideal aromatherapy experience. 

You can also accompany this homemade spa gift set with a matching fragrance—our Nue Tuberose fragrance will allow her to smell that same relaxing scent all day long, and you’ll never be too far from her thoughts. 

A Night Out or a Day in

It’s no secret that moms don’t get enough time to do the things they

eternity roses

once loved to do, whether that means sleeping in, doing nothing all day, or going out for a date night. One of the best things that you can do for your mother this Mother’s Day is give her a night out, a day in, or even both!

Give her the house to herself for a few hours or the whole day so that she can sleep in, lounge around, or just relax without having to fight anyone for the remote. If you know that your parents haven’t had a date night in what seems like forever, then take it upon yourself to give them a night on the town. You can make dinner reservations and buy her a nice outfit, and let her know that their evening out is non-refundable. 

Or perhaps she wants to spend more time with you—take her out for brunch so that you can bond over wine glasses filled with delicate cocktails. After all, the best Mother's Day is the one spent with the family. 

In the event that she prefers to enjoy a bike ride out in the fresh air or simply lounging on the patio with a great book, this time is for her to enjoy. To accompany her reading, surprise her with a delicate gardenia arrangement, Le Clair Grand Un. Leave this single flower assemblage on her side table to set a calm, enchanting atmosphere for her. When she opens the lid, she’ll be embraced by the honeyed aroma of a gardenia flower, allowing her to escape into her book, her journal, or simply into another world.

Give Back

It’s only natural that when most of us think of what to do for Mother’s Day, we often first consider ways in which we can spoil them with gifts. This year, however, instead of spending money on gifts that may end up sitting on a shelf, why not choose to give the gift of your time? If your mother is someone who enjoys helping others, then make the decision to spend Mother’s Day giving back to your community or to your planet. Plant some trees in your yard, or sign up to volunteer at a nursing home or help feed the homeless.

We find that when you go back to your community and spend time helping others, it makes you feel good, and it can be a day that you and your mother will remember with fondness and joy.


A Fantastic Destination

One of the worst-kept secrets of motherhood is 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.

Words of Affirmation: Making the Perfect Card

Anyone can go to the store and pick up a generic Mother’s Day card. What may not be evident is that there are numerous other mothers who will most likely receive the same card, so why not go for something a little more meaningful?

Instead of spending money on a store-bought card this year, take the time to craft a one-of-a-kind personal message that truly shows how you feel. The wonderful thing about a card made by hand is that it doesn’t have to look great. One doesn’t have to strive for Hallmark quality—the simple fact that you put the time, thought, and labor into this card will only show your mother how much you care and make it a keepsake in her eyes. Additionally, you can add your own personalized message about your mother and have the pleasure of knowing that her special Mother’s Day message is unique to her.

Such small, personal gestures like this can make all the difference when it comes to giving your mother what she really wants!

The Perfect Flower Arrangement

Flowers and succulents are perhaps the most timeless and essential way to say “I love you,” “I appreciate you,” and so many other things. We at Venus ET Fleur pride ourselves on our magnificent Eternity Roses, which are full of that wonderful fragrance that you love so much about roses, which, best of all, allow you to enjoy it for months on end as opposed to natural bouquets which, though gorgeous, last at best for a couple of weeks.

Since Mother’s Day comes just two weeks before National Rose Month, roses can be one of the most plentiful and seasonally appropriate blooms to send as a thoughtful gift. Each of our stunning, handcrafted arrangements is made from real roses that last up to a year with proper care, enabling you to enjoy the memory of the gift of flowers long after the expiration of their natural life. What better gift for the mother who has everything?

If it’s your wish 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. You could also choose her favorite color, or perhaps the color of her birthstone to personalize it even further. 

For sons who may be too young to cook or step near a glass vase, you, the father, can still help your son give his mother a rose on her special day. Our Le Mini Round in Pink Suede makes the perfect petit gift from a petit child. These arrangements feature a single rose in a miniature Parisian-style hat box to display elegantly on a vanity, a bedside table, or as home-office decoration.
