Often criticized as being highly commercialized and lacking sincerity, Mother’s Day can still be a lovely opportunity to show your appreciation to any loved one. Whether you’re celebrating your mum, grandparents, siblings, friends, or those that have had positive effect on your life, we think the day still holds honesty and earnest.
We’ve picked some of the best florists in the city to put a smile on anyone’s face this Mother’s Day. Because there’s nothing better than receiving a bunch of beautiful blossoms, right?

‘I’m like the milkman, but with flowers.’ Why not give the gift of a flower subscription rather than a one-off treat?
Each week Freddie’s Flowers chooses the best flowers of the season and puts together a beautiful bunch for consumers to arrange at home. They’re all cut to order, with no middleman, making them super fresh. The delivery also comes with step-by-step instructions on how to arrange each bunch and if you need help from a human, you can watch Freddie’s weekly arranging video on Facebook or Instagram.
If you’re going away or don’t want flowers every week you can skip any deliveries, you like using an online calendar making it totally flexible.
Founder of Floom, Lana Elie, launched the brand back in February 2016 after becoming frustrated by how hard it was to find flowers online that were both convenient and beautifully arranged.
Using local artisanal florists, Floom ensures that every time a bunch of flowers is ordered online, consumers receive a lovingly crafted bouquet created by independent florists, close to you.
Handpicking every florist, they work with, Floom are proud that each shares their values and mission to bring the joy of flowers into everyone’s lives.

The inventors of letterbox flowers! Bloom and Wild started six years ago with the innovative idea of sending flowers in a package that fits through consumers’ letterbox.
The idea came from everyone’s issue – “will they be in?”. CEO and Co-founder, Aron Gelbard, spent weeks personally measuring hundreds of letterboxes to find the perfect size for the brand’s flower boxes. He then teamed up with some of the best florists around to make flower-arranging at home all part of the fun.
All Bloom and Wild’s flowers are picked in bud and wrapped in petal protectors, so they travel safe. Cutting out the middleman means consumers can enjoy them for longer and, although they won’t arrive looking like their photograph, every bouquet comes with fun arranging tips allowing you to watch them bloom over the coming days.
The family-owned business started selling flowers under an umbrella back in 1989 and has since delivered over eight million bouquets. Priding themselves on bringing joy and making a difference, the company is all about relationships with customers, suppliers and staff.
Providing a range of traditional bouquets their classic concoctions have stood the test of time. Their site is simple and easy to navigate, with occasions, flower type and colour easy to filter when searching.
Bunches is also committed to giving a minimum of 10% of profits to working with the poor either in the UK or largely in the developing world. They are actively involved in deciding how these funds are managed and providing other, practical support too. Well worth giving the Bunches family a try.
