This Mother’s Day is simply incomparable to those of the past. This year, you probably won’t be able to take your mom out to her favorite restaurant for brunch, lunch, or dinner. You won’t be able to take her to the movies. You may not even be able to take her to the beach or for a hike, depending on where you live. So, how exactly can you celebrate and let your mom know just how much you care while #stayinghome? We’ve compiled the top three ways to celebrate Mother’s Day from a distance.
#1 Send flowers to her doorstep, with contactless delivery (of course)!
We may be biased, but nothing says “happy Mother’s Day” quite like a bouquet of farm-fresh flowers, cut by our network of growers, and shipped to your doorstep overnight from us. Here at Fabulous Florals, we have a number of specials this Mother’s Day. If you want enough flowers for your mom to decorate the entire house with, go with the Pink Passion bunch. Not only will you get free shipping on these, but this year we are including a discount code (“love mom 10”) for 10% off if you order by May 6th. If you want a fun way to keep mom busy, whether you are physically with or without her, we would recommend ordering the Pink Passion bunch or bulk tulips and/or peonies. This way, mom can have fun making DIY arrangements on her special day.
#2 Have a virtual meal together
You’ve been attending all of the Zoom parties, Hangouts, and FaceTimes, and have gotten used to this new normal in socializing. Spend some time with mom, from a distance, by scheduling an online meeting on your platform of choice. On Zoom, you can even go ahead and set a background of your choice to add a special touch. As a small business, we are doing our best to #shopsmall and support our local restaurants during this difficult time. We would recommend ordering dinner for your mom from her favorite local eatery, and having it delivered to her door as a nice surprise.
#3 Send mom a gift from her favorite local retailer
We all know those that are hurting the most in small business: restaurants and retail. You’ve successfully #shoppedsmall by sending mom’s favorite Fabulous Florals bouquet or grower’s bunch, and you’ve planned for a lovely, virtual family meal, cooked by her favorite restaurant. What more can you do to make mom’s day while shopping small? You can order her some clothing from her favorite boutique, skin care products from a local spa, or some home goods from her favorite mom and pop shop downtown.
