Daughter gifting her mom UrbanStems flowers for Mothers Day

Mother's Day is just around the corner and it's that special time of year where we take a moment to appreciate and show love to the mothers in our lives. As a way to understand how people are planning to celebrate this year, we recently conducted a survey of 100 customers to get their insights and opinions on Mother's Day. The results we found were both interesting and insightful, shedding light on how people are planning to celebrate this special occasion, what types of gifts they are considering, and much more.

Think Pink, Think Peonies

It’s not the first time for many to be sending flowers for Mother’s Day, but when it comes to the type of flower and color, there are some clear winners. 

  • It’s a classic flower color for a reason! 45% of survey respondents say they gravitate towards pink flowers on Mother’s Day.
  • Purple was a close runner up, with 17% of people gifting purple flowers for Mother’s Day.
  • When it comes to flower type, it’s hard to beat peonies! These fluffy blooms are the favorite of 46% of respondents (we get why)!
  • Other flowers also get their time in the spotlight, with 12% sending tulips, 11% choosing to send roses, and 25% sending another stem for Mother’s Day.

Celebrating Everyone

Of course moms should be celebrated on Mother’s Day, but our audience thinks our four-legged friends should be gifted to on Mother’s Day too. 

  •  60% of our audience thinks pet moms should be celebrated on Mother’s Day. Being a dog (or cat) mom can be hard work too!
  • 40% of our audience would gift flowers for Father’s Day as well. According to a poll done by the Society of American Florists, men like flowers too! When it comes to gifting flowers, we say the more the merrier.
