I went traditional with sending my mom some blooms. She's retired in Woodstock and is quite the flower child turned flower lady. Her garden is something the fairies envy and her house a makeshift nursery, and I'm talking greenhouse, not babies. So going with classis flowers will not be wasted. I wanted to stay away from the usual FTD/1-800 route and go with a more modern bouquet. I checked out both Farmgirl Flowers and The Bouqs. I actually had a chance to do a review with The Bouqs when they were just getting started, but never went through with it. I still love their mission and operation (Free Shipping!) and volcanic farm fresh flowers cut the day you order and arriving at your destination 2-4 days later. Right now, you can get 15% Off and Free Shipping with code MDAY15.
I really also loved the mission behind Farmgirl Flowers too, however they were sold out of the Lavender Fields plant, so I'll just have to use them next time (before last minute).
You can also get 7.5% cash back with Ebates when shopping on The Bouqs.
Some other ideas in case you want something to last longer than flowers, ShopBop is currently having a surprise 3-day sale with select items up to 40% off and has free 3-day shipping - get to it!
Have flowers all year with a new phone case, mom-bag organization with a credit card holder, or a summer vacation tote bag perfect for babysitting ;)
Personally, I'm hoping for a surprise pair of sunnies.
Anyone else wait until the last minute???
