Unique Mother's Day Gifts and Flowers for the Other Special Women in Your Life

We’re officially on the countdown to Mothers’ Day. Sunday 14 May is less than a month away, and it’s well and truly circled on our calendars! 

But Mother’s Day isn’t just for remembering mum. There may be a special woman in your life you’d like to honour this Mothers’ Day – and you should! This could be a grandmother, adopted grandmother, an aunty, a foster mum, step mum, your best friend’s mum or even your neighbour. 

Mother’s Day is a great day to celebrate these other special women in your life. And we’ve got some great unique Mothers’ Day gifts and flowers that will show them just how much you care today and every day.

Unique Mothers’ Day gifts and flowers

The week leading into Mothers’ Day is our favourite (and busiest!) week of the year. We love to be surrounded by unique Mothers’ Day gifts and flowers as we prepare deliveries and shopfront bouquets for all the lovely people in our Birkdale and Brisbane area, including your mum and the other special women in your life.

For your favourite aunty

Aunties are very special women in our lives, stepping in to mother us or befriend us when we need them. One sweet gift to say ‘thinking of you’ on Mothers’ Day, is an Ivy & Wood Candle or Reed Diffuser. 

Ivy & Wood draw inspiration from Australia’s native flora, and embrace simplicity and nature. Their collaborations with Australian illustrators bring their ranges to life and your aunties – old or young – will adore them. These beautiful candles and diffusers are a lovely way to say ‘you’re in my thoughts’, each time they’re lit.

For your grandmum

It makes sense that our signature flower at The Flower Farm, carnations – is one of our Top 5 Flowers for Mothers’ Day. As the ‘original Mothers’ Day flower’, carnations are the perfect way to let your grandmother (or grand-MUM) know she is in your thoughts. 

Our carnations are fresh picked from our fields daily and have a a long vase life (seven to 14 days when well cared for), so your Mothers’ Day thoughts will be an enduring daily reminder to your nana. Their delicate petals and old-fashioned charm is perfect for sweet grandmothers as well. 

Carnations can be found in May in our daily seasonal bunches and arrangements, along with other gorgeous blooms and foliage.

For your step mum

Step mums often get a bad rap, but in most cases they’re like a second mum in your life. And locally crafted, artisanal New Farm chocolate is a fantastic gift for the bonus mum whose loved and cared for you. Choose her favourite from our delicious range, and who know, perhaps you’ll share a piece with her over a coffee.

And why note add a little extra thank you to your unique Mothers’ Day gift with a cute 10cm Thank You air-filled foil balloon. Show her that you appreciate all she’s done for you over the years.

For your best friend’s mum

Your best friend’s mum likely saw you at your best, and your worst, but loved you anyway! If she has a favourite colour, a bespoke bouquet or arrangement is a lovely choice. 

As one example, pink flowers are very popular around Mothers’ Day. Platonic love, appreciation and gratitude are associated with pink roses and tulips, and will brighten the day of this special woman showing her how much you appreciate all she’s done for you over the years. Similarly, pink chrysanthemums and orchids have traditional associations of femininity and grace, and pink carnations of gratitude and thankfulness.

For your special neighbour

Neighbours occupy a special place in our hearts, offering us tea and snacks, chats over the wall and eggs whenever we’ve run out. Some neighbours might have become even closer than that – and become like a special mother figure in your life.

If you’d like to show your neighbour some love on Mother’s Day why not celebrate with a glass of bubbly and a little indulgent pampering. Our Jarrah Honey & Prosecco Gift Box is the perfect gift. She can toast with a bottle of Brown Brothers Prosecco while enjoying some pamper time with Trelivings Jarrah Honey Revitalising Bath Salts and Lindt white chocolate.

Flowers to say ‘celebrate you’

A bold bouquet or arrangement of yellow blooms is a bright and happy way to celebrate a special person on Mothers’ Day. Yellow has associations with happiness and hope, as well as friendship. They’re a great way to send a little celebratory sunshine on Mothers’ Day no matter who we’re celebrating on the day!
