Your Mom Will Love These Gift-Worthy Plants

We agree that placing an annual bouquet order for Mom's Day is easy. But just because it's tough to beat the convenience of delivered-to-her-doorstep blooms at the click of a button, doesn't mean it's the best option available. If you and your ma are feeling some flower-fatigue this year, then shake things up on May 10 by gifting a plant instead — because while those stem-cut blossoms wither, these plants were potted to survive and thrive.

On top of a lengthier gift-span, the leafy green friends also come in a wide variety of species, shapes, sizes, and care-levels that make them easily customizable to match your mom's personality quirks and lifestyle habits. Taking the vast garden of options into account, we crafted a streamlined shop-guide of bestselling plants to help with making your Mother's Day gifting decision.

Scroll on for the beautiful blooming houseplants to painted-face-potted air plants, string-of-succulent trios, and more that our moms will love the most.

We’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team.
