Flower deliveries used to be one degree above those limp roses you picked up at a gas station: cheesy, deeply thoughtless last-minute gifts that you’d get when you realized, day of, that it’s her birthday or Mother’s Day. But not anymore. Flower delivery services and subscriptions have come a long way, and now you can get seasonal bouquets delivered that are thoughtfully designed and actually feel special. The flowers are fresh, ethically sourced, and come in lots of arrangements for every taste. And since we’re all still largely holed up inside, a fragrant bouquet of peonies, blue thistle, snapdragon, or eucalyptus is an instant mood-booster.

Horticultural expert Joyce Mast, who’s Bloomscape’s on-site Plant Mom, says flowers make for great gifts because they “can boost moods and create a sense of happiness as they represent new life and beauty. They can represent pleasant memories and express feelings such as love, sympathy and celebrations. Their scent can relieve anxiety and stress when used in aromatherapy and candles.”

These are the best flower delivery services and flower subscriptions for Mother’s Day — or any day.
