If you haven’t thought about Mother’s Day gifts, you might want to give some thought to the subject before gifts start to sell out and floral delivery services become booked and busy. Some moms appreciate new tech or smart home gifts that can help them keep up with household tasks. Other mothers might hope for fitness-related gifts like spin bikes and accessories or kitchen essentials like the air fryer and Instant Pot, two Shopping reader favorites. No matter what you choose to give her this year, you’ll want to make sure to make Mother’s Day extra special in some way. One easy way to do that is through a bright bouquet of flowers. Whether you bundle it with a new pair of shoes, a digital picture frame or a new set of activewear, a vibrant bunch of Mother’s Day flowers could bring some much-needed joy to your mom or mother figure.
