Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and now is the time to order your Mother’s Day gifts. Ordering a Mother’s Day gift now not on ensures that your mom will have a gift on May 10th, but also saves you money because you will not have to pay for any expedited shipping. Ordering gifts last minute can incur some hefty shipping rates. Heavier gifts such as gift baskets can cost $50.00 to $60.00 to ship overnight, and if money is tight, expensive shipping charges are last thing you want to pay for. Here are a few gift ideas for Mom when shopping for Mother’s Day this year.
gold roses, platinum roses, and silver roses are lasting gifts that mom is sure to love. These roses are also available in a variety of colors with gold or platinum trim. Certain roses can even be personalized, so mom will never forget how much you care. You also can add a vase specifically designed to hold your roses, so mom can display her new gift anywhere she wants.
If your mother is anything like mine, as soon as the sun is shining and the mercury is rising, she is outside tending to her garden. If this is the case with your mother, you might want to consider a gardening gift basket. Last year my mother loved the Gardening Pleasures Gift Tote that I got her. This gardening gift contains everything a gardener could want like gardening tools, seeds, and snacks.
Mother's Day Fortune Cookie and Teddy Bear might be the perfect gift for you. This unique gift contains an enormous vanilla fortune cookie baked to order and hand dipped it in your choice of Belgian Chocolates or Golden Caramel. The cookie is then finished with candy sprinkles and is accompanied by an adorable teddy bear. What makes this gift great is you can have the fortune say whatever you'd like. If I'm looking to add a little something to this gift, I'll turn the fortune into a coupon by entering a message like, “good for one free car wash, or good for one free dinner of your choice.” This will make a sweet gift a little sweeter.
This Mother’s Day remember the three B’s; bling, baskets, and baked goods when selecting a gift. Stick with the B’s and you are sure to get Mom a gift she’ll love. Just remember to do yourself a favor and order early.
