Flowers may not be the most original gift, but the pleasure of receiving a bundle of blossoms is nearly unparalleled. We get a jolt of energy every time we walk through a room and see cut flowers in a vase. Rather than presenting Mom with merely one bouquet, though, why not give her a year’s worth of joy? Our pick for the best online flower delivery service, UrbanStems offers subscriptions of classic or seasonal arrangements that arrive weekly, twice monthly, or monthly. The first bouquet comes with a simple, clear glass vase, but you could upgrade to a hand-blown Aurora Vase from Hawkins New York; it comes in a range of shapes and colors.
Program her you care about her sensations with a journal or high-end note pad for writing notes and even wish list. Perfect stocking stuffer for associates, siblings, and nieces.

And they’re easy to slide on and off when she doesn’t have the time to bend down and fiddle with footwear. The slippers are available in rubber-soled versions, too, so she can wear hers both inside and outside of the house.
