Flower Power: The Best Blooms For Mom

Trends come and go — trust us, we know — but one thing that never goes out of style is flowers. Even if she insists that she doesn’t need anything or that this year, a card and a phone call is fine, mom won’t ever turn her nose up at flowers. But that doesn’t mean that you have to head to a florist to send your mom the freshest, coolest blooms. Instead, the floral industry is getting a major makeover thanks to, what else, the internet. Companies are embracing the powers of the the net to connect florists and growers with customers. That means that flowers are fresher, bouquets look a lot more dynamic than they used to, and it’s all just a few clicks away.

For the farmers’ market mom: Think of BloomNation as the Etsy of flower sites. It connects local florists with shoppers and eschews those boring stock photos of roses and lilies. Instead, when you shop Bloom Nation, you’re looking at actual flower arrangements from real-life florists local to where you’re sending them. This way, there’s no middleman and small shops have the power to engage the internet and connect with customers in a whole new way. What you see is what you get — guaranteed. While sites like 1-800-Flowers may show inaccurate images and let you down, with Bloom Nation, you know what you’re going to get every single time.
