Thankfully, the internet has allowed a number of creative businesses to share and deliver their own gifts, from flower bouquets to unique chocolate and fruit arrangements, directly to your doorstep.

We’ve rounded up a few that let you choose from a wide variety of flowers, gift baskets, and tasty snacks from makers like Godiva and Benchmark Bouquets to show some love to mom on her special day.
You would be hard-pressed to find a mom who does not appreciate flowers and Benchmark Bouquets teamed up with Amazon to bring their beautiful arrangements to you. These bouquets come in a wide variety of styles with many different types of flowers including classic roses and tulips, as well as some exotic ones like Stargazer lilies and snapdragons, to suit any taste.
These Benchmark Bouquets go for between $27 and $45 on Amazon and come in attractive presentation boxes with round glass vases, so they are ready for gifting. A couple of the $45 arrangements include an eight-piece box of artisan chocolates from LePetit Mousse as well.
Those of you out there with a sweet tooth should already be familiar with the quality of Godiva and Green & Black’s, who have prepared some special chocolate collections just for Mother’s Day.

You can choose from a variety of different fruit baskets, many of which include additional mom-friendly gifts and snacks like cheese, chocolates, gourmet pancake mix, and cookies.
