Honoring the Mother Figures in Your Life: A Guide to Celebrating All Types of Moms

As we approach Mother's Day, it's important to take a moment to appreciate all the amazing women who have played a significant role in your life. From biological mothers to stepmothers, grandmothers to mother figures, so many women deserve to be honored and celebrated for their unwavering love and support. In this blog, we will explore the different types of moms and share the best Mother’s Day gift ideas for each of them.

Biological Mothers

Let's start with the most obvious type of mom—biological mothers. These women carried babies in their wombs for nine months, gave birth, and raised them into the person they are today. Biological mothers have a unique and special bond with their children, and it's important to let them know how much they are appreciated.

Spending quality time with them is perhaps one of the most heartwarming ways you can make your mom feel loved. Plan a day out together doing something she loves, which may include shopping, spending a weekend afternoon strolling one of Los Angeles’ beautiful botanical gardens, having a Mother’s Day brunch, taking a hike, or simply having a meal together. Make the occasion memorable with a gorgeous spring floral arrangement.

Raised by a single mom? Then that means she deserves the world and more, but a little self-care package can do for now. Lavish her with a luxurious gift box with everything she loves.


Stepmothers often get a bad reputation in popular culture, but the truth is that many stepmothers play an incredibly important role in their stepchildren's lives. They may not have given birth to you, but they love you and care for you just as much as any biological mother would. Consider yourself doubly blessed if you have a stepmother who loved you like their own. Make sure they do not feel forgotten on Mother’s Day. Send her a surprise flower delivery with the sweetest notecard expressing how lucky you are to have them in your life. 


Grandmothers are often a source of unconditional love and wisdom. They are the women who spoil their grandkids with treats and hugs and who always have a listening ear when needed. So whether they are biological or honorary grandmothers, they, too, deserve to be celebrated on Mother's Day.

Call them and ask them to wear something pretty, and then take them out on a special date at one of L.A.’s fanciest restaurants. Oh, just the thrill of dressing and getting all glammed up will surely bring back happy memories of their youth. Top it off with a breathtaking orchid arrangement delivered to their doorstep the next day. 

Mother Figures



Finally, there are equally special women in your life who may not be related to you by blood but who have had a profound impact nonetheless. These mother figures could be anyone, an aunt, teachers, mentors, colleagues, or family friends who have been there for you when you needed guidance or support.

Let her know how much she has meant to you over the years by giving her a sweet gift, like a hand bouquet, a succulent arrangement, or pretty potted plant they can keep as a reminder of your friendship.
