It’s that time of year again! Or it almost is...this Sunday, May 11th is Mother’s Day. One of our favorite holidays here at Nosegay. Mother’s Day first begain being celebrated in 1908. Despite being celebrate for over a 100 years, it seems as though each year it get’s tougher and tougher to find the “perfect” Mother’s Day gift. We’ve developed a good place to start when it comes to thinking about a Mother’s Day gift this year. Good news is there is still plenty of time! 

Does your Mom have a hobby? Or something she likes to do often? Maybe it’s planting, knitting, exercising, painting, or maybe it’s reading. It doesn’t matter what it is as long as it’s something she enjoys. Starting with what your Mom likes to do is a great place to start when thinking about gift ideas. It’s a thoughtful gift that you know she enjoys because she already spends her time doing it. 

Maybe it’s not an item for this year’s Mother’s Day and it’s better idea to spend the day together doing something she enjoys. Think about a museum she’s always wanted to go to or spend the day together at the spa. Even going to see a movie together just the two of you is a great way to spend the day or weekend. It’s also okay to plan a fun weekend in follow-up to celebrate Mother’s Day. Just make sure you tell her about it this weekend so she can get excited! 

Another great way to celebrate Mother’s Day is to do something special for your Mom to show her how much you love her. Think about things like breakfast in bed or mowing the lawn. Give her the option to stay in bed all day if she wants to. Live out of town? Maybe come in for the weekend to surprise her...that’s gift enough to lots of the Moms out there! 

If none of these ideas blow your socks off, keep things simple. Nothing says “Happy Mother’s Day” like a card. flowers or chocolates. Or perhaps this Mother’s Day it’s all three! Mother’s Day flowers are easy to find this time of year with all the different deals out there. If you’re looking for something that will last longer, look no further than an orchid. They are beautiful and lasts longer than your typical week-long flower bouquet. If you’re not in the market for an orchid, try a fun spring bouquet of same day delivery flowers like tulips. You really can’t go wrong with any Washington D.C. florists like Nosegay when it comes to showing how much you love your Mom on Mother’s Day. 

And to all the Mothers out there...Happy Mother’s Day! X
