" ... offering flowers to my mother for her birthday.

Shouldn't the English translation read, "I'm giving my mother flowers ... " rather than "offering"? 

This question relates to:
French lesson "Conjugate offrir et souffrir in Le Présent (present tense)"

Yes, that would sound more natural in English. But the "offering flowers" gives you more of a clue as to what to use in French.
