Mother's Day is special to everyone, isn't it? It is for the simple fact that we all love our mothers. The sacrifices that these ladies have made, the care and affection that they have showered upon us, and the constant support and advice that they provide us - all of it needs to be appreciated every day! However, it is just one day in the year that is reserved for celebrating all these 'sheroes' who mostly go unsung in everyone's lives.
Thankfully, people realized that Moms need to be thanked for all their contribution, and Mother's Day was born! Among the most popular gifts of this occasion are flowers. Flowers have a magical quality of bringing a smile to one's face, especially when gifted to them. Moms are no exception to this rule.
If you still have not started planning your Mother's Day activities, begin by selecting the flowers. Take a look at the variety of flowers that your Mom likes the most, and make your choice. If you do not already know what flowers she loves, then it can be a bit difficult to choose from so many varieties of available flowers for Mothers Day. It would be best to rely on the special lady's personality. Is she a traditional woman or a thoroughly modern one?
Here is a list of flowers that you can consider:
1. For those who are traditional - For a lady who places much importance on traditions, carnation is the best choice. Do you know carnations are the flowers conventionally associated with this occasion? This custom can be traced back to 1908 when a devoted West Virginian girl promoted the wearing of her mother's favorite flower as a way to honor mothers everywhere.
2. For the bouquet lovers - If your mom likes bouquets, you can go for beautiful fragrant flowers like freesia, lavender, carnations, roses or oriental lilies. If she instead prefers single blossoms, gift her tulips or spring lilies.
3. For modern tastes - If your mom likes all things contemporary, you can skip bouquets altogether and arrange to gift her a live plant that she can nurture and grow even in her busy schedule. Fragrant gardenia, potted yellow rose or pink calla lily can be the best choices.
4. Something other than flowers - You can also include cute yet thoughtful gifts like strawberries, chocolates, toiletries, cards and even heartfelt thank you letters for making the wonderful lady feel exceptional.
You can select flowers for Mother's Day and send it over to her as a lovely gesture, but know that she will be even happier if you spend some time with her. So, plan and make some time to spend time with your mother, take her out for dinner or maybe a holiday. The memories you make will be worth cherishing!
Moms should be appreciated for all that they have done and continue to do. They should be cherished every day of the year and not just one. Thus, you do not have to wait around for Mother's Day to come by to tell her how special she is and how much she means to you.
