Mother’s Day Gift Ideas: Say It With Flowers
Looking for the perfect gift for that special lady this Mother’s day? We got a suggestion for you: Say it with flowers!
Keeping flowers in mind makes decisions easier. Anything with flowers is a sure pleaser for moms of all ages and make—from the smart corporate mom to the full-time hard-worker at home. Flowers fit all events and situations too—a bedside vase arrangement to cheer up ailing mom works just as well as a tulip-design pendant and earrings ensemble! Got too busy and missed the occasion? A brief stop for a lei of roses from a downtown sidewalk stall comes handy.
So, here are some ideas that involve flowers this Mother’s Day.
Flower power – Anything with a flower design will create interest, from jewellery to house wares and novelties. Hand-blown art glass flowers and custom crystals will add interest on mom’s dresser or home office desk. Tech-savvy moms will definitely fall for tablet and phone casings with floral designs while the hobbyist may be preparing for “the best of ephemeral arts” right now—gardening!—so help her gear up with tools and wear specifically designed for women.
Wrap it with flowers – From picture frames and wine bottles, almost anything can be gift-wrapped with a single flower placed prominently to make that loving statement. Gift baskets filled with her favourite vanity or her favourite sweets topped with flowers are a thoughtful treat. Get your kids involved! Make them create greeting cards with a sincere handwritten line or two.
Pamper her with petals – Does she love perfumes? Scents can bring her to a wonderful mood. How about a soothing massage with flower oils while she basks in the fragrances of candles in a nearby spa? Some remember their older moms and bring them out for a brief walk in the neighborhood park garden. Will that be an option for you?
Perhaps your loved one prefers a quiet dinner in your favourite restaurant. Take her out and hand her a single rose bud plucked from a nearby shrub. She’ll love the spontaneity of the moment! Let her guess what lies ahead later—a movie date or a concerto?
Think flowers – You can think of anything, add flowers to it and you’ll never go wrong with mom–virtually! Now that we’ve mentioned the word, free e-card services abound on the internet. Surprise your sister, aunt or friend working far away with a virtual flower-design greeting—along with Patti Austin’s “My Mother’s Eyes”. Download the song, click on the link below.
Whatever you give her this Mother’s Day, one thing you don’t forget is that what matters most is the thought behind the gift. Author Rick Warren, famous for his bestseller The Purpose Driven Life, said sums it all nicely: “The most desired gift of love is not diamonds or roses or chocolates. It is focused attention.”
