2016 is the year I (finally) planned ahead for Mother’s Day. I didn’t want to be rushing last minute to find gifts that would arrive on time, so I turned to two trusted names: Hallmark and Precious Moments. With their help, I found two classic mother’s day gift ideas that my mom loved.
Hallmark FlowersI’ve turned to Hallmark for beautiful, funny, and witty sentiments on special occasions for years. When I heard that I could now send Hallmark flowers, it simply made sense. A heartfelt card, combined with a vibrant bouquet is a classic Mother’s Day Gift idea for good reason.
My mother and I live far from each other, but Hallmark helped me brighten her day with a gorgeous, surprise delivery of roses and lilies. She called to share her delight and I couldn’t think of a better way to say, “Happy Mother’s Day!”
I love how easy it is to order Hallmark Flowers online through FTD. They have a variety of beautiful Mother’s Day themed bouquets in several color schemes. Each one comes with a quality vase and a special message just for mom.
Hallmark sent me my own Mother’s Day flowers and I was delighted by the lovely color combinations. I’ve enjoyed watching the lilies open over the last few days and brighten the room. It’s lovely knowing fresh, beautiful flowers are brightening my mom’s home too.
I remember loving Precious Moments figurines and dolls growing up. My mom collected these timeless figures, commemorating the beauty in the everyday. To this day, Precious Moments make me think of Mom.
This year, we decided to surprise mom with an inspirational grandma figurine to add to her collection. My daughter saw “TGIF – This Grandma is Fabulous” porcelain figurine and instantly chose it. When the figurine arrived, we were even more impressed by all of the details, from the sparkles on her sunglasses, to her rings, to “TGIF” on her mug. We loved the idea of her keeping this fun grandma figurine nearby to remember us when we’re far from each other.
Precious Moments collectible figurines make a thoughtful, fun Mother’s Day gift idea. Many of the sweet figurines feature big-eyed children expressing their love for mom. You could even think outside of the Mother’s Day box and give a doll or figurine fitting one of her hobbies; like baseball, sewing, or gardening.
