The second Sunday in May is a very special day. This year, on May 13, families around the world will celebrate Mother’s Day. This is the time to let your mom know how much you love and appreciate her. The most popular way to share your affection is with a bouquet of flowers and a gift of chocolates.
Peoples Flower Shops in Albuquerque has been making Mother’s Day extra special for decades with lovingly-designed bouquets and gift options ranging from ceramic collectibles to memory boxes to yard art and bath and body sets. Peoples also has some suggestions for Mother’s Day surprises to go along with those beautiful floral arrangements. We’ll help you make this Mother’s Day unforgettable.
1. Create a personalized photo album. Chances are there are boxes of family photos stashed away in your mother’s attic, in a closet, or on her computer. Give her a hand with getting them in order and create a unique Mother’s Day surprise at the same time. Go through the photos, pick out the most memorable and fun moments, and compile them into a photo album. Take some new photos to bring it up to date with recent pictures of the kids, grandkids, other family members and pets.
You can put together an album with supplies from the craft store or use an online service to print a professional-looking hardback photo book. Either way, you’ll brighten your mother’s Sunday with a delightful stroll down Memory Lane.
2. Deliver the bouquet in person. If you don’t live in the same town as your mother, think about taking the time for a road trip to visit her on Mother’s Day. She’s probably expecting to receive flowers, but imagine her surprise when her children arrive to deliver them in person.
3. Write a letter. Nowadays, we live in a world full of emails and text messages. Handwritten letters are a rarity. Mother’s Day is a great occasion to get out your pen and put down on paper what your mother means to you. Choose nice stationary and deliver it along with a bouquet of flowers. This makes a classic statement that shows you really took the time to create a personal gift. A letter from the heart will become a keepsake your mother can return to again and again.
4. Give the gift of time. Mothers are busy people. Sometimes, the greatest gift might be more peace and quiet and a little less work. Allow Mom to “take a day off” from her normal routine. Agree that everyone will share the chores and meal preparation for an entire day and let mom have free time to do whatever she wants.
