Norwalk, CONN. (PRWEB) April 17, 2006
April showers bring May flowers, as the old saying goes, but what do May flowers bring? According to AP9 companies, they bring smiles to the faces of mothers all across the country. The same can be said about any number of other thoughtful gifts, of course, and with Mother’s Day fast approaching, it’s time to start looking for proper tokens of your affection for your mother.
While flowers are a traditional and appreciated Mother’s Day present, they’re not the only game in town. Members of AP9 companies know they can find great ideas -- and great deals -- when they log in at DealPass for members-only offers on clothes, jewelry, travel, personal care items, accessories and much more (including floral arrangements).
So what do you have in mind for your mother this year? If you’re looking for something new and different, AP9 companies have a few possibilities in store for you:
-- Say it with live flowers. Bouquets are beautiful, but live flowers and plants last a lot longer. And if your mother has (or wants to develop) a green thumb, a perennial plant can provide her with a nice centerpiece for her garden while serving as an ongoing reminder of the eternal bond between mother and child.
-- Pack up the memories. Mothers typically beam with pride at their children’s accomplishments. Put together a scrapbook of memories for your mom, from your best report card to a picture of you on prom night to newspaper articles recounting your athletic, academic or business feats. If you can’t find those but do have pictures of your children, an album of photos or even a collage depicting your kids in action will also do nicely.
-- Give her a break. This Mother’s Day, surprise your mom with a prepaid spa visit. As a daughter, you might even want to make a day of it and join your mother at the spa. If you’re a son, on the other hand, you can take great pleasure just from knowing that your mother is being pampered by professionals.
-- Give her a hand. A mother’s work is never done, but with a little effort, you can at least put a dent in it. Whether it’s arranging for someone (which could be you) to give her home a thorough spring cleaning, or getting down and dirty under her car to change the oil, there are probably any number of chores that you can do that would make her life easier.
-- Send her on her merry way. If you’re looking to splurge this Mother’s Day, look into a vacation package that will take your mother to places she’s only dreamed about before. Be it a Caribbean cruise or a visit to her grandparents’ native country, your mother will undoubtedly be thrilled to get away for a while -- and even more thrilled at how thoughtful you are.
Mother’s Day comes once a year, which might seem a little too infrequent, given all that mothers have done for us down through the ages. With a little time and consideration, though, you can find your mother a gift that will last the entire year -- or longer, according to AP9 companies.
