Living far from your mother can be tough. Especially when important occasions like International Mother’s Day roll around. It makes you think about them and about how much you shared over the years. All those memories of growing up. The funny, silly, and even the sad moments that don’t seem all that sad anymore. When we get older, time seems to move more quickly and we start to realise that we only have so many special occasions left to share with our loved ones. Don’t let these days pass you by – celebrate them to the fullest.
This year, International Mother’s Day falls on the 13th of May and now is the time to shop! There are plenty of fantastic gift options for mum but the number one gift is always fresh flowers. You can choose from traditional pink carnations to mixed bouquets or even a bunch of her favourite flowers if you prefer. The key is to think about what she will enjoy most of all.
When sending an international bouquet, you need to make sure that the online florist you choose will be able to deliver to the country of your choice. If they only offer delivery in the USA, for example, you will not be able to opt for UK flower delivery. You will also need to find out whether or not they offer weekend flower delivery. Some florists deliver flowers on Saturdays but they are not available on Sundays so make sure that you keep this in mind when shopping. In some cases, you might be better off sending flowers the day before so that you are sure that mum will be home. She might plan to go out on Mother’s Day which means that she will not be home tor receive your gift.
When placing your flower order online, you will be able to monitor the progress. The bouquet will not be arranged until just before delivery. This is to ensure freshness and perfection. You might be able to request an approximate time for the expected delivery but this time is not set in stone due to traffic and other circumstances. Just make sure that somebody is home to receive the delivery when it arrives.
Don’t forget to include a special message in the card that your florist includes. Take some time to think about something that only mum will understand. Like an inside joke, for example. This will make your gift even more personal. Your florist should also offer optional extras like chocolates, sparkling wine, and even balloons. So take the time to check these out and choose which ones you’d like to add to your flower order.
