Making Mother’s Day flowers personal

It’s quite obvious that the United States has had a significant influence on the rest of the world.  This influence might not always have been good, but it has created change none the less. In countries where the native language is something other than English, you will notice that the locals often speak English with an American accent. Similarly, American traditions have been adopted in many other countries. Just take China for example. They started celebrating Mother’s Day after it became extremely popular in America. The Chinese even see the carnation as the official flower for Mother’s Day!


Mother’s Day is most likely one of the most accepted celebrations. The Chinese are known for their deep family values, which is part of the reason for their acceptance of Mother’s Day.In 1997 a new tradition started where mothers in rural areas were offered support and assistance as a token of the people’s appreciation.


Today, this holiday has taken on a variety of meanings in different countries. Various cultures put their own little spin on it to make it more personal and applicable to their culture and customs. While this day marks the celebration of all mothers, it’s important to think of your mother when shopping for the perfect gift. Something personal will be that much more appreciated than your average generic gift. Fresh flowers are the most popular gift for this occasion and, because of this, many people have come to think of them as generic or cliché. However, if you add that important personal touch, you can make any floral bouquet special, unique and unforgettable!


The challenge to all of us is this: don’t wait until the last minute to do your shopping for Mother’s Day!  Begin thinking about what makes YOUR mother so special. It’s really easy to pick up the phone or surf the web to order flowers online. However, you need to take it one step further. Fortunately, your online florist should also be able to offer you a wide variety of optional extras. You can upsize your flower order by choosing a larger bouquet with extra stems. You can also add a bottle of bubbly, a box of luxury chocolates, a bright balloon, or even a cute stuffed animal that mum can treasure for years to come.

Mother’s Day hampers are also perfect when you’re looking for something special yet practical. Just look for one that includes some or all of her favourite things and you’re well on your way to making the most memorable gift choice! If mum has a sweet tooth, then chocolates, sweets, and biscuits should be at the top of your list. If she prefers tea or coffee, you can look for a hamper with these items. Similarly, when you send flowers for Mother’s Day, you can go the traditional route and order carnations or you can choose a bunch of her favourites. So, if you know that mum prefers gerbera daisies, then opt for these blooms instead and she will know that you put some extra thought into her gift!
