Mother’s Day can be a tough time of year for those who have lost a parent or don’t have a strong relationship with their mother. But Mother’s Day can be a celebration of all the women in your life who have helped support you. Celebrate your “other” mothers with Mother’s Day plants this month!

Another Family Member

Use Mother’s Day to celebrate the other special women in your family, such as an aunt, grandmother,  cousin, or sister. A Mother’s Day plant will show your love long-term and provide a lovely surprise.

A Close Friend

Take a Galentine’s Day approach to this holiday, and round up your besties for breakfast and presents. For a busy mom, a beautiful Mother’s Day plant like a mini orchid will remind her of how special she is to you for months to come!

A Mentor

If you’re still in touch with the coaches, teachers, or professors from your past, send them a Mother’s Day note or present to thank them for making a difference in your life. A Mother’s Day plant, whether it’s a lucky Money Tree from Max’s collection or trailing foliage from Miles, will go a long way toward showing the impression your mentors made on you.

A Boss or Coworker

Sneak a card and a gift onto your work mom’s desk to let her know how much you appreciate her support at work! Women in business often don’t get the recognition they deserve—so reach out to a current or former supervisor or mentor who helped you along the way. Giving a potted plant for Mother’s Day is a great choice here because it’s the perfect addition to an office or workspace.

Your Barista

If you stop for a morning coffee and always see the same barista, let her know that she adds some joy to your day! This can also be applied to a server at your favorite restaurant or anyone else who you see on a regular basis.

Why More People Are Choosing Mother’s Day Plants

While a card and chocolates are an easy go-to, we always think it’s the right time to show you care with potted plants like Phalaenopsis orchids, money trees, succulents, and foliage.

Potted plants are growing in popularity thanks to their long-lasting appearance and easy care. While cut flowers fade within a few days, orchids keep their blooms for up to three months with proper care, and foliage and succulents provide yearlong beauty and are rewarding to care for.

Your gift will easily show mom (or any of your “other mothers”) that you’ve been thinking of them long after the usual gifts would fade.

Whether you honor your other mothers on Mother’s Day or any day this month, you can make a lasting impression with Mother’s Day plants.
