If you're wondering what to do for Mother's Day, sending some letterbox flowers could be the answer. Most Mother's Day flowers will be hand-delivered by a courier or local florist, but letterbox flowers are posted through your letterbox - they're the original non-contact delivery service.
And the good news is that letterbox flower specialist Bloom & Wild is currently offering free delivery on its stunning range of Mother's Day bouquets. (Mother's Day 2020 is pretty close now, on Sunday 22 March, so if you haven't already ordered some flowers now is a good time...)
Bloom & Wild has some of the best Mother's Day flowers we've seen in the UK, with bouquets like The Charlie - a stunning arrangement of alstroemeria and seasonal foliage - starting from just £23. Prices range all the way up to £200-plus for special subscription options like A Year of Flowers, where you can order a year's worth of fresh flower bouquets to be sent for the ultimate Mother's Day gift.
What are 'letterbox flowers' and why order them for Mother's Day?
Letterbox flowers are hand-picked arrangements that are carefully packed into a convenient letterbox-sized box, which is posted through your door. The great thing about them is the recipient doesn't have to be home (or answer the door) when their flowers arrive.
Bloom & Wild is a letterbox flower specialist. Its boxes are designed to suit the season, and the team pops in a lot of advice about caring for the blooms, as well as styling tips to make flower arranging part of the fun. You can also add chocolates, handcream or truffles to your order - you'll see some of our favourite Bloom & Wild Mother's Day flowers below.
Bloom & Wild says that as long as you order by 10pm, you'll be eligible for free next-day delivery. It offers same-day four-hour delivery in some London postcodes, too, although we'd recommend ordering your Mother's Day flowers sooner rather than later (wherever you're based) because the best bouquets will likely sell out.
