'Forever flowers' from Lego are a creative Mother's Day gift, and they're down to $48 at Amazon

Lego is growing up. These days, the toy brand produces plenty of building sets with adult tastes and skills in mind. The Lego Icon Flower Bouquet is just one example: Not only does it look fantastic, but its intricacy makes it one of the best Lego sets for adults. It also makes for a unique Mother's Day gift — especially while it's on sale at Amazon.

This 756-piece set features realistic-looking roses, asters, daises, snapdragons and more — and she'll never have to remember to water them!

Lego sets are an investment: They rarely lose value, and that means they rarely go on sale. Right now, this set is down to $48, 20% off its normal price of $60. That's one of the lowest prices we've ever seen. Plus, you'd spend at least as much on real flowers that would wilt in a week or so.

The Lego Icon Flower Bouquet bears little resemblance to the bricks you probably played with as a child. The set includes 15 stems with different flowers and greenery. They're designed to be as realistic as possible, and there is no "official" way to arrange the stems. That means you can also try your hand at flower arranging with this set, tweaking your bouquet until it's displayed in a way that speaks to you.

There are 17 new Lego elements included in this set, ensuring that the flowers will stand out from sets that have come before. It's also challenging enough to keep even experienced builders on their toes. If mom is the creative type, let her put it together; if not, assemble this long-lasting bouquet yourself and present it in a pretty vase — no water required, of course.

This Lego bouquet is No. 1 among Amazon's most-gifted artificial flowers. Nearly 19,000 shoppers give the set a five-star rating.

"This was my first Lego set, so the packaging, instructions and even the whole premise was all new to me," said one person who just found a new hobby. "It was easy to build but so satisfying and so much fun! I'll absolutely be buying the other botanical sets."

Another fan wrote, "I got this Lego set for my birthday and it was very fun and easy; it only took me a few hours to put together. All the pieces were included and came in great shape. The only thing you’ll need for this is a vase once you’re done."

"I bought this to build for my mother for Mother's Day," said a third shopper. "I was so excited I ended up giving it to her earlier, because how could I not? It was super fun to put together, so I plan to get more in the future."

"Made the best Mother's Day gift for my daughter-in-love!" shared another. "She loved it and especially loved her son and husband putting it together for her."

Some shoppers warned that the Lego flowers can be quite delicate — not surprising for a set aimed at adults.

"Lego had some very interesting techniques when designing this," said one shopper. "Lots of pretty small pieces. It was definitely a fun build, though. The great thing is that these flowers won't die on you. The only downside is that it is a bit fragile. If something falls off or gets knocked off and you don't already know where that piece came from, then it's going to be tough."

"We gave this as a gift to my mother-in-law and she loved the bright colors and variety of flower," said another. "We all put it together, and enjoyed the challenging (but very doable) Lego construction, and uniqueness of each flower. The only slight problem was the fragility of the stems when handling the flowers. It was only after several attempts [that we] were able to get the flowers in a vase for display. Once there, they are beautiful!"

The stems are adjustable, so you can shape your arrangement to fit different vases.
