1-800-Flowers has been around for decades because they know how to ship a beautiful bouquet quickly and dependably. But they've really outdone themselves here: a stunning bouquet of two dozen mixed roses in a purple vase, accompanied by Sweet Smiles chocolates for just 70 bucks. If that's not a sweet enough deal, you can alter your order to suit your budget — opt for a clear vase or skip the candy. Prices start at $55 for bouquet only.

That household name of flower retailing, FTD is offering this Petite Knockout Rose Plant, which, I'll confess, would be my personal choice. It's flush with mini deep-pink roses, and charming in this burlap wrap with bow. Unlike a bouquet, these roses are made to last — potted and ready to transfer into Mom's garden or reside by a window or in a conservatory. It's a pet-friendly plant that's as safe as it is beautiful. The best part: It's on sale for $56, down from $80.
