Mother’s Day is on the horizon, which means it’s time to enter gift-shopping mode. Flowers and Mother's Day of course go hand-in-hand, so if you haven't got your Mother's Day flowers picked out yet, be sure to explore our collection.
If you've got your gifts for mum sorted already, you’re off to a great start — but don’t forget about the other motherly figures in your life, like your mother-in-law!
Mother’s Day isn’t just about the mums we’ve always had, but also the mums who’ve come into our lives later on and have (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 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 gifts for your mother-in-law to inspire you.
Mother-In-Law Gift Ideas
Gift-giving can be challenging, particularly on Mother’s Day. While shopping for your mum, partner or friend might be straightforward, shopping for your mother-in-law can be a little trickier.
If you’re not sure where to start, you’re in the right place. We’ve collated a list of mother-in-law gift ideas that will surprise and delight.
Take time and care to consider what kind of gift suits her lifestyle and interests. The best gift for your mother-in-law is one that was chosen thoughtfully and sent with love!
1. Gifts for Your Long-Time Mother-In-Law: 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 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 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?

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 to give your mother-in-law something that can help her 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!

This Mother’s Day, why not treat your mother-in-law like the queen she is and give 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. Gifts for Every Mother-In-Law: A Floraly 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 make her day again and again?
A Floraly flower subscription is the perfect gift for every kind of mother-in-law.
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!
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!
