Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day

She kissed your boo-boos, took care of you when you were sick (or just sad), and helped you fall asleep after a nightmare. When the face only a mother could love needed a tissue, Mom held it up to your nose and said, “Blow”. Mothers are a special breed of people—here are some gift ideas for mother’s day that are just as special!

One day each year, we pause to appreciate all that moms do for their kids. But what gift says everything you want to say: thank you, you’re the best, I realize now, you’re special, I love you, I appreciate everything you taught me, or aren’t you glad I grew up into a responsible adult? Here are some ideas:

Fresh flower bouquets are perfect on Mother’s Day because they are such a great idea. Flowers are delicate, yet they are tough enough to break out of the constraints of a bud. Delicate and tough, just like moms. Women appreciate beauty and fragrance. Flowers provide both. You might be surprised to know that, even though it’s on a Sunday, Mother’s Day flower delivery does exist. Make lunch, invite your mom to join you, and have the flowers delivered while she’s there. (Be sure to set the table just like she taught you.) If you live too far away, a flower delivery on her special day means that much more.

Bath and body gift baskets let Mom know she deserves a break. Whether it’s an aroma therapy bath, a fragrant body lotion, or a combination of beautiful smelling goodies, the gift basket transforms your mother’s bathroom into a spa. It’s the refreshing relaxation she’s wanted ever since you crammed gummy bears into the toaster as a child.

European Dish Gardens make wonderful Mother’s Day gifts. Denver is notorious for turbulent Springs. It can be warm one day and snowing the next, creating a challenge for garden lovers. Bring the garden and the flowers inside with a blooming dish garden basket.  Just as beautiful as a bouquet of cut flowers but the dish garden will continue to grow and bloom as long as Mom nurtures it. She took care of you, so she can handle the flowers.

Whether you use these gift ideas, fly across the country to surprise her, or help your kids serve her breakfast in bed, remember to show your appreciation to mothers on their special day.

A Mother’s Day Tale: How could I forget Mother’s Day?

May 4, 2010

As Mother’s Day approaches, the Amore Fiori team is planning, preparing, and readying for one of the biggest holidays in the floral industry. You would think with Mother’s Day on the brain and all around me, there would be no way I ever could forget my own mother. How could I?Mother's Day Gift

That is exactly what happened the very first Mother’s Day at Amore Fiori. Seven years ago, I had this crazy idea to open a flower shop. Not only was I spending my life savings in the process, but I was leaving a very stable job of thirteen years to do it. Jokingly, I told my mom and dad if the store failed, I would have to come live with them in Florida as I would be both jobless and broke.  That’s when they said, “Well, why don’t we come to Denver and help you open store?”  I’m not sure they were too keen on the idea of me moving back with them.  So they came to Denver for the grand opening and our first Valentine’s Day – good thing they are retired.

There are lots of other funny stories from the first couple months in business.  My mom and dad were our first delivery drivers, which is kind of scary since my dad didn’t know Denver and my mom can’t read a map.  One of my favorite memories is when my mom got stuck in someone’s garage when she thought the garage opener was a doorbell.  Not only did they do deliveries, my mom cleaned my house, made dinners, and kept the shop very tidy.  They were a great help and I could not have done it without their support, love and support.

Much to my pleasing, they decided to come back later that year to help during Mother’s Day.  Again, I can’t tell you how great it was to have my mom here as the first Mother’s Day was very scary.  I had no idea of what to expect, except that it would be crazy.  And, it was crazy.  I was so busy taking care of getting flowers out to all the other mom’s, I completely forgot about my own mom.  How could I?

I felt like dirt when my dad came back from church and told me all the moms were wearing beautiful corsages at mass.  I wanted to die.  I have forgotten her after all the help and support she had given me not only that year, but all the years of my life.  How could I?

Now, before all the Mother’s Day hoopla starts at Amore Fiori, I make sure to take care of my own mom.  Her name is Jane and she is a mother of 5 (who were all born within 4 yrs-I think they call that perma-pregnant).  She raised all of us to be honest, hard-working, loving, and thoughtful people.  I get my “somewhat” cleanliness habit, handwriting, and drawing from her.  When people say my sisters and I look like my mom, we usually laugh.  Inside we are smiling as she is a beautiful woman!

So, the moral of the story?  Regardless of how busy our lives are, we need to take a deep breath, live in the moment, and show those important members of our lives how much they mean to us – especially our moms.
