The best gifts for your Mother-in-Law this Mother's Day

Mother’s Day is coming right up on 8th May this year. If you’ve got your gifts for mum already sorted, good on you — but don’t forget about your mother-in-law too! Mother’s Day isn’t just about the mums we already have, but the mums who’ve come into our lives later on and (hopefully) grown to love us as their own. It’s the perfect occasion to show her how much you appreciate her, and thank her for raising your spouse so well! 

If you’re close enough to your mother-in-law to know all her likes and dislikes, picking out a gift should be fairly easy. But if you’re still learning what she loves and loathes, fret not. We’ve got a power-packed list of great Mother’s Day gifts for your mother in law that definitely won’t steer you wrong. 

1. Fresh flower bouquets

Mother’s Day would not be complete without flowers, that’s for sure. And there’s no easier way to make your mother-in-law blush with happiness than by sending her a beautiful bouquet of fresh blooms! If you’re unsure about what colours and flowers she’ll like, we’ve curated a list of our top 5 Mother’s Day bouquets to make her smile.

Here at Floraly, our flowers are sourced only after you order, so they are much fresher and can be enjoyed for longer than bouquets with flowers that have already bloomed. All our lovely bouquets are delivered in our signature Floraly gift box (which is a stunner on its own!) and come with a free personalised gift card for your Mother’s Day message.

While it’s fresh in your mind, why not pre-order your Mother’s Day flower delivery on our website? There are plenty of add-on options, from candles to champagne, if you’re keen to up the ante, so beat the rush and secure your Mother's Day flower delivery spot today!

You can’t go past a wonderful, scented perfume for Mother’s Day, especially when it’s a perfect fit for an elegant, classy lady like your mother-in-law. Instead of gifting her a bottle from one of the more well-known brands, why not opt for something a little more unique and special from the likes of who is elijah?

They have all sorts of wonderful fragrance options, from floral, delicate, citrus scents to something more earthy, musky and sensual. Packaged in a sleek glass bottle with their signature black and white label, this is a truly memorable gift that your mother-in-law will remember (and no doubt rave about to her friends) for years to come.

3. Fancy plates

With 11 different collections to choose from, ranging from Bold Colours to Italian Words, New Neutrals and Cosmic Gradient, there’s certainly something for every mother-in-law out there. The perfect way to jazz up the tablescape for every occasion, these will certainly be her new favourite set of plates! Napkins, placemats, vases and more are available too, so you can choose to go big and really impress her with your Mother's Day gift this year.

4. Dried flowers

Ever so chic, dried flowers are right on-trend this Mother’s Day. Delightfully low maintenance with no watering or trimming needed, dried flowers are an everlasting way to show your mother-in-law your appreciation! Here at Floraly, our dried flowers come pre-arranged inside a white ceramic vase, so all she has to do is open up her Floraly box, and pop them on display.

If your mother-in-law has a Scandinavian or minimalist theme at home, The Margot would be perfect — filled with a mix of creamy, natural tones that would look splendid on a side table, coffee table or sideboard. Eclectic and stylish, this will be a gift she can enjoy for years to come. Check out our recent blog post for more awesome reasons on why you should send dried flowers as a gift this Mother’s Day.

5. Organic skincare

Mums are often so busy focussing on taking care of everyone around them, they tend to neglect themselves in the process. So there’s no better time than now to give your dear mother-in-law a little reminder that it’s always important to slow down and enjoy a little "me" time. 

Peggy Sue’s organic skincare products will surely come in handy — not only are they Australian made and 100% natural, they’re also refillable! From vitamin serums to multi-purpose beauty oils, facial creams and more, your mother-in-law is sure to love these holy grail skincare products, perfect for a little self-care.

6. Sateen bed sheets

This Mother’s Day, why not treat your mother-in-law like the queen she is and gift her luxurious sateen sheets from Ettitude? Their signature sheet sets are made with 100% organic bamboo lyocell, which make them soft and smooth like silk. Bamboo has a lot of great benefits. It's breathable and thermoregulatory, meaning it will keep your mother-in-law warm in winter but cool in summer. Bamboo is also hypoallergenic, lightweight, and sustainable.

We're sure she’ll enjoy a good night’s sleep and feel well-rested and recharged every morning when she's sleeping on these beautiful sheets! Available in a variety of colours to suit her home, this is a worthy investment that she’ll definitely thank you for.

7. A flower subscription

Flowers and Mother's Day go hand in hand — but why send your mother-in-law flowers only once a year when you can do it more often? Perfect for mums who are ever so nifty at crafts, handiwork and the like — gifting her a Floraly flower subscription not only ensures that she has beautiful fresh flowers around the house all the time, it also gives her a fun activity to do every few weeks! 

Opt for one of our seasonal or premium flower subscriptions, starting from just $59 and $79 per month respectively. You can choose either an ongoing monthly subscription, or a fixed 3, 6, or 12-month subscription. Each bouquet will be sent in our beautifully designed Floraly signature gift box and delivered right to her door — we bet it’ll be the one key thing she looks forward to receiving every month! There’s no better way to put a huge smile on her face than a lovely, thoughtful gift like this.
