You've sent Mom countless flower bouquets over the years, and they are gorgeous, but they simply don't last. This year, why not opt for something beautiful that's longer lasting: A houseplant!
Plants purify the air, reduce anxiety, bring joy and enhance any space. And the best part — you can have one sent straight to her via Amazon.
Amazon's live-plant selection keeps growing and growing — and delivery has never been easier.
If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
What's that? You say she prefers flowers? Amazon has bromeliads and other flowering plants! She worries about Fluffy? Send her a pet-safe pick. She murders plants? No worries, they've got just the thing. Read on for seven awesome options for every type of mom!
For those with exotic tastes
If flowers are truly the way to her heart, then she'll love this brilliant bromeliad Guzmania, which arrives in a ceramic planter dotted with tiny pink lovelies. The red bloom stands an impressive 20 inches tall, holding a "Best Mom Ever" sign. "Stunning," raved one of the nearly 1,600 adoring fans. "Beautiful but easy to care for; I got one for myself and have gifted it as well. Great value too!"
While this only blooms once, the flower can last for months and then it produces pups, which can grow up and bloom. At $28 (was $39), this is a total steal!
For the style setter
If she's got cool taste, she'll dig this mini Monstera variety. The Monstera adansonii has an exotic look, with narrow leaves and large oval holes, which have led to the moniker "the Swiss cheese vine." We were stoked to find the No. 1 bestseller on sale in time for Mother's Day!
"Beyond expectations!!!" reported a happy shopper "I have never ordered a plant online and was extremely nervous about it. Especially for the price. The plant came in just a few days. I live in the south in hot humid weather. The plant was packed very well. No issues noted with shipment. They had a paper towel packed over the soil and the soil is still moist. The plant is in excellent condition!!!! I was beyond pleased."
For the sentimental mama
This wee Amazing Sweetheart Waxplant (Hoya Kerri) will steal her heart when it appears on her doorstep. It’s easier to grow than you were, that's for sure. She'll love nurturing it from its 2-inch grow pot into a vining wonder. In a few years, at maturity, clusters of tiny, sweet flowers should pop up and surprise her.
A fan writes: "A perfect heart! My Hoya heart plant arrived today and I love it! It is a perfectly shaped heart and it is very green/healthy. It was packed with care and it arrived in great condition. I plan to order another one soon."
For the brown thumb
If she has a rep as a more, shall we say, laissez-faire plant parent, the ZZ (Zamioculcas zamiifolia) is a spectacular choice that will thrive despite her. The 22-inch beaut arrives in a pretty, neutral container, asking only for some light and a good watering every couple weeks.
For the black thumb
If we're being honest, moms have enough on their plate This fuss-free faux ficus, Amazon's No. 1 best-selling artificial tree, provides look of the real deal (756 verdant silk leaves) without all the hassle. Right now you can send it to her for just $47 (was $111). That's 57 percent off, y'all!
"My home is full of live plants, trees and flowers, but there was one corner where nothing would live," explained a five-star reviewer. "I tried rotating ficus trees, leaving them in that corner for a week and then changing them out. That didn't work. A lot of effort, and the trees did not do well. Finally I gave in, and decided to try this artificial tree. BRILLIANT DECISION! I absolutely love it. It looks real, wonderful and fills that corner perfectly."
For the health-conscious mom
For the mom who cares about air quality, may we direct you to this care package from top-rated seller Costa Farms. The O2 for You three-pack selection is "grower's choice," based on the highest-quality and healthiest plants available at the time of order. Her trio of air-purifiers may differ from what's pictured above. Despite this surprise factor, some 10,500 fans have given it a perfect five-star rating. Impressive!
One thrilled shopper, who ended up with Marginata, Peperomia and Arrowhead plants, wrote: "Best plant delivery I’ve ever received!...They arrived on time, packaged well, and in the healthiest condition I’ve ever received plants upon opening the box."
For the crazy pet lady
Her kitties and pups may be attracted to the fun flyaways on this fun Ponytail Palm, but luckily it won't hurt them. This cutie pie is recognized by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) as being nontoxic to cats and dogs. It's easy to care for too as it prefers things a bit on the dry side.
"I purchased this ponytail plant for myself, but I would not hesitate to send one directly as a gift," wrote a five-star reviewer. "The plant came exactly as described and healthy. I hesitate purchasing plants online; I have hit some bad ones. Costa Farms is my go to when ordering online. Their selection and quality is top-notch."
