Mother's Day Gift Ideas From Nicole Richie Include 200 Flowers (VIDEO, PHOTOS)

Nicole Richie sits down with a celebrity florist to get the lowdown on blooms for Mom.

A Mother's Day gift idea that never fails is a lovely bouquet of flowers. But which blooms are the best kind to give Mom? Nicole Richie sat down with celebrity florist Eric Buterbaugh on the latest episode of "Candidly Nicole," and found out that peonies are the way to go. "You should send [your mom] 200 stems of pink peonies, which sounds massive, but not really, that's normal," Buterbaugh joked with Richie.

That number is a little extreme, but Buterbaugh is right about his choice. Peonies are the perfect flower because they're full and bright -- the ideal flower for spring.

Watch the video above to see Richie and Buterbaugh's hilarious discussion about the appropriate blooms for nearly every occasion. Still searching? Click through our slideshow of homemade Mother's Day gift ideas.
