Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and a beautiful bunch of blooms is the easiest way to show appreciation. While browsing the local flower markets or florists for the prettiest petals is always fun, nothing beats having them delivered straight into the hands of your nearest and dearest. With this in mind, we bring you the best tried-and-tested flower delivery services in Hong Kong, whom you can always rely on to brighten up a day!
Wear your heart on your sleeve (or shoulder) with Blooms and Blossoms’ unique “Bloom Buckets,” which are chic buckets that double as vases or even bags, depending on the size you choose. The gorgeous bucket bouquets are available year-round, but the florist has introduced a Mother’s Day selection that includes arrangements like the Femme Floret (starting from $1,480) and Dreamland (starting from $1,580).
Orders placed before 12 pm are eligible for same-day delivery; delivery starts from $80 and covers Hong Kong Island, Kowloon, New Territories, and parts of Lantau Island.
For pure unfettered floral luxury, nobody does it better than Ellermann. Not only does Ellermann offer your garden-variety bouquets, but they also sell everything from houseplants to antique vases in which to house your perfect new blooms. Bouquets are helpfully categorised by occasion—who knew “get-well” flowers were different from “house-warming” flowers?—and you can even go the extra mile with a luxury hamper.
Cherish the special lady in your life with the Dashing Muse ($1,680), a chic that comes with carnations, dahlias, and more, or the orchid-led One in a Million in a Vase ($1,980).
Delivery starts from $100 and covers Hong Kong Island, Kowloon, and the New Territories; orders made before 12 pm are delivered from 11 am to 2 pm the next day at the earliest.
If your mum has a bit of a wild streak, they will no doubt appreciate the ethereal blooms at The Floristry. Steering away from conventional bouquets, these guys offer a refreshing take on floral design with stunning arrangements inspired by wild natural flowers and foliage.
Its handcrafted bouquets and rustic flower jars are sure to appeal to the romantics and create a gorgeous natural sanctuary within any home! Whether it’s the Mother Wild Flower bouquet (starting from $1,230) or the Mother Moon Flower bouquet (starting from $1,230) you’re after, either will add an unbridled touch of mother nature to your space.
Delivery costs $75 to Hong Kong Island, $120 to Kowloon, and $180 to the New Territories. Order before 12 pm for same-day delivery.
Don’t know your dahlias from your daffodils? Narrow down your options with Floristics Co., a flower delivery service that only offers one type of bouquet in order to cut down on waste. Flowers are offered in three formats: wrapped in paper, a large vase, or a letterbox-friendly package you can arrange yourself, with bouquets starting from $880 and vases from $995. Bouquets change monthly, but for Mother’s Day, you can expect pink and rosy hues.
Eco-friendly folks will also like their practices of sourcing locally-grown flowers and using recyclable packaging in all of their orders! You can typically order before 12 pm to get same-day delivery across Hong Kong Island, Kowloon, and many parts of the New Territories, starting from $75, or free with orders above $1,000. Do note that Floristics does not deliver on public holidays, so you will have to plan (a tiny bit) ahead if you are on a time crunch.

Van der Bloom’s arrangements are elegant and timeless, inspired by the founder’s love for nature. A passionate team of florists crafts the bouquets by hand and the rawness of the fresh flowers are somehow preserved in their natural state, as if you had just casually plucked them from the countryside. Van der Bloom believes that no matter the occasion, you can say what you need to say with their flowers.
For Mother’s Day, you cannot go wrong with Mum’s Melody ($2,680), a fresh spring bouquet which comes in a vase. Bouquets can be delivered on the same day if orders are placed before 2 pm. Van der Bloom also offers a floral subscription for regular deliveries of fresh flowers, which can show up weekly, bi-weekly, or once a month, so you can brighten up any space with a reliable flow of blooms.

What we love about this slick website is that you can shop by flower type to find the perfect bunch, whether you like roses, lilies, tulips, sunflowers, or orchids. Each arrangement comes in either a bouquet or stylish box. If you buy an orchid, it comes in a beautiful, ornate bowl that doubles as the perfect home décor.
