If you aren’t aware, Mother’s Day is May 9 so you’d better get shopping. I don’t know about you, but I feel like every year it gets harder and harder to think of creative things to send my mother. I mean, how many times can you give someone new pajamas? I know flowers seem like the obvious gift, but not for my mother. She hates getting flowers. She thinks it silly to spend so much money on something that is going to wilt in a few days.
So this year, I’m opting for the surprise gift. I know she’s expecting me to show up to brunch with a new p.j. set, but after 20 years of getting pajamas for Mother’s Day, I think she can stand to get something different this year.
I decided to get her some new tabletop accessories and beverage dispensers for when she has her friends over for dinner and bridge, and a dozen crystal roses. The crystal roses are a beautiful alternative to real flowers, because they’re everlasting. Classic Hostess also has a single long stem rose, as well as multi-colored spring flowers. It’s great because they come with a vase and wrapped in a gift box.
The best part is you can get 10% off your purchase of $85 or more or 15% off a purchase of $275 or more.
