4. Riley-Fit Floral Print Shirt from Banana Republic:Perfect for the office or tucked casually into jeans, this is the perfect floral shirt for the mom who doesn't do loud patterns! This hint of floral in black and white is ultra-chic for the stylish lady you love.
5. Set of Three Floral Notebooks from Indigo: If Mom still forgoes smartphones for notebooks, this lovely set of three floral 96-paged books are sure to tickle her fancy. She can keep one by the computer, toss one in her purse and stash one beside her bed to jot down dreams and thoughts.

8. Villeroy & Bosch Anmut Flowers Tea Cup from Hudson's Bay: Here's a gift that could stand alone, or be paired with its matching saucer. This set is made from premium bone porcelain and the delightful pattern is both fresh and timeless. Give a single cup just for mom, or spoil her with multiple settings so she can share the joy with guests.
