Ways to help new moms whose baby won't stop crying

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Floral Gifts

Flowers have been a Mother’s Day tradition since the holiday’s official inception in the United States 1914.  Here’s a brief history of Mother’s Day. Anna Jarvis, the key woman behind the starting of the holiday, handed out white carnations (her mother’s favorite flower) at the first Mother’s Day Memorial services.

But if you’re looking for a new spin on an old tradition, browse our selection of organically grown and harvested floral wreaths. We offer fresh and preserved wreaths made from a wide variety of natural materials, including flowers such as roses and daffodils, herbs and seeds, twigs, and much more. Our wreaths provide you the opportunity to give your mother a unique floral arrangement, and as a bonus these wreaths last much longer than a standard bouquet of flowers!

Here is the ever-classic Mother’s Day Wreath, made with lavender roses, hydrangeas, and preserved salal topped with a lovely ribbon:
