Mother’s Day is on Sunday, May 9th! You have about three weeks or so to plan, shop, prepare what you are going to do to express how much you care for your Mom, wife, or the Special Mom in your life! The following websites I have used throughout the years for myself, my friends and clients! Take a look, perhaps you can consider some other ideas for a gift, besides thinking on just having dinner, some ice cream cake or that beautiful vacuum cleaner you were thinking on buying her! 😳
www.groupon.com Groupon features a daily deal on the best stuff to do, see, eat, and buy in a variety of cities across the United States. Sign up and check out what’s going on in your city on or before Mother’s Day to see if you can take her somewhere nice. Then check periodically to find out other deals for the summer as well!
www.giftprose.com Entirely new concept in gift giving where the gift, the gift message, the sentiment behind the gift, and the prose are all intertwined into one beautiful package. Plus, each GiftProse gift comes personalized with the name of the gift recipient along with a personal greeting from the sender.
www.perfumania.com I’ve bought from this site for over 8 years, I’ve never paid full price for fragrances. The discounts are wonderful! Search it’s index to see if the fragrance Mom really likes is available and then check out the Clearance section for great buys for future gifts or for yourself!
www.proflowers.com Always has a Mother’s Day special and there’s definitely a price to fit your budget.
www.opi.com Thinking about getting Mom a laptop! It no longer has to be boring! Go to the site, pick out her favorite OPI nail polish color at My OPI and get the exact color for her new Dell® laptop! She will love it! I just assisted one of my friends on buying one (the color, Cozu-melted in the Sun)! Also there’s a special nail color named BREATH LIFE which assists in helping the Lung Cancer Foundation of America, buy a bottle, wear it to show your support!
www.harryanddavid.com Gourmet gift baskets, they have a nice choices.
www.hallmark.com Send free e-cards to all your friends and family who are Moms.
Finally Carol’s Daughter® is running a promotion to send a note to your Mom or Special Mom in your life, the butterfly notes will be checked and prizes are given daily, plus there are great gift ideas on the site (Almond Cookie Shea Souffle – my favorite!), as well as the 30% off all Purchases are Donated to Mary J. Blige’s Charity FFAWN!*:
Or just make it simple. The kids can all get together with their crayons, construction paper and scissors to make some beautiful cards. Even the old cake mix with some store-bought icing would be great! Breakfast in bed? How about giving 3 DVDs of her favorite movies to watch all day, while you wait on her (hand and foot)! Finally updating her Ipod with all her favorite songs or programming the DVR to record her favorite shows. Whatever you decide to do, remember it’s the thought of your kindness that will make them happy and feel appreciated! OK countdown, start preparing; don’t let it sneak up on you! Enjoy shopping for someone you love! 🙂
Be well – Letia
