This Sunday, you may receive flowers, cards, chocolates, and other gift-wrapable declarations of our love for you. These are simply small tokens of our appreciation for the hours that you have spent loving, listening, baking, hugging, cooking, cleaning, calling, driving, shopping, quizzing, working, nurturing, playing, teaching, encouraging, and cuddling over the years.
Whether your mom is the Marmee to your March sisters, the Mrs. Bennet to your Elizabeth, the Mrs. Weasley to your Ron, or the Liza to your Judy, she is yours. So celebrate her and the other wonderful women in your life: your grandmothers, aunts, sisters, cousins, and daughters. There are more than 85 million mothers in the United States. Chances are good that you know a few.
The Slice Team does! And we have a collection of sweet and clever ideas for your Mother’s Day, arranged by official Slice Thingerprints. (Slice Thingerprints are the personal analytic break down of our users’ most frequent purchases from “Gadget Geeks” to “Bookworms”).
For any mom:
Order flowers from 1800Flowers or ProFlowers:
This year, Americans will purchase 140 million cards for Mother’s Day and spend nearly $2 billion on flowers. The most popular flowers for Mother’s Day are mixed bouquets, carnations, daffodils, roses, and tulips. Be different! Order a bouquet inspired by her favorite color or scent.
Order gift baskets and delicious treats to thank her for a lifetime of sweetness:
Boxes from Harry & David, The Popcorn Factory, Dark Chocolate ROCA®, a bottle (or case) of wine will show her how much you care.
For the Social Butterfly:
Whether she loves the opera or the Grand Ole Opry, improv shows or ice hockey, Mother’s Day celebrates her interests. Did she mention a desire to see the Rolling Stones in concert or hear Fleetwood Mac? Try Ticketmaster for concerts and sporting events and Fandango for movies.
For the Bookworm:
An e-book reader like a Kobo Aura or a Kindle Fire is a must-own for bibliophiles.
For the Pet Lover:
Adopt a puppy this week and order accompanying gifts from PetSmart or PetCo.
For the Jet Setter:
Deck out her globe-trotting with new luggage.
For the Proud Parent:
Is this her first Mother’s Day? Personalize something sweet to commemorate the new year.
For the Sharp Dressers and Sole Mates:
Look for a breathtaking pair of shoes at Nordstrom or Zappos. Charm her with a bit of glitter by creating a custom Pandora bracelet from Nordstrom. And we can personally attest to the happiness inspired by opening up a box from Ann Taylor, Coach, or Amazon.
For the Top Chef:
Is she a kitchen connoisseur or a DIY diva? Perhaps a new set of knives or from Crate & Barrel will inspire her. Plus, Williams-Sonoma currently offers brightly colored Le Crueset cookware and KitchenAid mixers.
If you are looking for flour, rather than flowers, we have a few recommendations for you as well!
Flower Power Sugar Cookies
No-Bake Sunflower Cookie Pops
This Sunday is the official day to thank your Mom for being herself. So order your flowers, your chocolate, your cards, and your flour, and celebrate Mother’s Day in style! Just be sure to order your gifts before Wednesday to guarantee delivery by Sunday! Our Slice stats suggest that the most popular shopping day for Mother’s Day purchases is 3 days before the holiday.
