Like many special occasions, Mother’s Day has become a large commercial event. Mother’s Day gifts including jewelry, candy, flowers, and dining out have made this a great holiday for businesses. According to the National Restaurant Association, Mother’s Day is now the most popular day of the year to dine out.
As with other special occasions, we need to remind ourselves the day is not just about giving gifts and eating fine foods, it’s also about giving appreciation and becoming closer to our Mothers.
If you want to make your Mother’s Day special, give her the gift of time – yours. Spend time with your Mom and if you are short on cash, don’t worry – tidy up, make her dinner, turn the tables and take care of her for a change.
And if you wish to buy her something special, there’s always the ever popular bouquet of flowers. Remember, just about any type of flowers will be well received – after-all she’s your Mother and is unendingly supportive, however white carnations are the official flower of Mother’s Day and you can thank Anna Jarvis for that.
