Pick a Planter

$15, Walmart

Before you choose your flowers, decide what you're going to put them in. Keep it simple with a single pot or planter, or grab multiple sizes of a matching set. Choosing the planters first will help you determine what size flowers to get, and since she'll reuse this part of the gift for years to come, you can pick something that's totally her style.

Choose the Flowers

Once you've chosen your planters, it's time to fill them up! If you just want to do one container of flowers for Mom's gift, go with the Containers Made Easy arrangement (pictured in the middle here) which includes multiple kinds of flowers and greenery and will tell you what size of planter you need. If you're creating an assortment, we have plenty of single flowers you can use to accentuate the larger arrangement. The purple pollinator pictured on the right is under $5!

Add an Accessory

$13, Walmart

Potted flowers are a nice enough gift on their own, but if you're looking to add a little something extra to Mom's gift consider adding a gardening accessory. Pretty gardening gloves, new tools, or a trendy watering can are all thoughtful gifts to accompany Mom's new flowers.
