..One breath before Mother's Day, these are the steps you should take to give her a gift that will make her really happy
A week before the Mother's Day it's worth planning your gift for her. With gifts in general, but especially those intended for our mothers, it's the gesture that counts more than the value of the gift. The gesture of course is meaningful when it shows that you have gone through the process of both looking and thinking about what she really likes. That's why below you'll find all the steps necessary to give your mother a gift that will make her smile.
WHEN IS MOTHER'S DAY CELEBRATED
Don't think that Mother's Day is celebrated on the same date all over the world. Although countries in the southern hemisphere celebrate it in their own summer months, all other countries have chosen the month of May to celebrate it. In most countries it is a movable feast and only a few countries have chosen the first or last Sunday in May. In the vast majority of European countries, as in Greece, Mother's Day is celebrated on the second Sunday of the month. For 2022, this date is none other than Sunday 8 May.
Most likely, on Sunday your mother has organised a dinner for the whole family, even if you are not used to Sunday dinners. Now if you're wondering what to offer her from the many options on the market that depends on her tastes and your budget. If she is a woman who loves flowers and often decorates the house with her favorites, she will appreciate a bouquet more than a piece of jewelry. But how will you manage to find the one that really suits her? Just follow a few smart steps.
STEPS FOR THE PERFECT BOUQUET ON MOTHER'S DAY
THINK ABOUT WHAT YOUR MOTHER REALLY LIKES.
The first step invites you to decode the signs. If you have noticed a flower that she buys often and is, whenever you visit her, in the vases in the house, then your life will become much easier. If not, then you need to notice or think about a few details that will show you the way. For example, what her favorite color is! If you still have no idea, think about what color she usually wears or what color most of the items in the house are.
TAKE INTO ACCOUNT ITS SPECIFIC CHARACTERISTICS
One question you should definitely answer is whether she has ever mentioned that she is allergic to a flower. Next, you need to consider the way she has decorated the house. Does she follow minimalism or maximalism? You can't offer a woman who loves baroque decorating a baroque decor white bouquet.
WHAT YOU WANT TO EXPRESS WITH YOUR GIFT
It's a good idea not to offer her a gift just for the sake of offering it. In case you intend to make a move without much thought, something like this will definitely show. It comes down to what you want to express with the flower you are offering. As I have written before, every flower has its own symbolism. The rose symbolizes womanhood. The tulip symbolizes love. The gerbera symbolizes creation. The chrysanthemum symbolizes optimism. The lily symbolizes motherhood. The orchid is fertility.
SEARCH FOR THE FLOWERS OF THE SEASON
We are in the last month of spring. Although this is the flower season, not all flowers can withstand the heat of our country during the summer months. Carnations, gerberas, violets, azaleas, calendulas, dahlias and roses are just a few of the flowers that if offered will last for more days in the prevailing weather.
WRITE A GREETING CARD
Better than just writing a few wishes, like "Happy Birthday" on your card, is to write what you really feel. You can express your gratitude for the woman who brought you into the world and raised you with sacrifice. Mention a childhood memory with her that you will never forget and an optimistic suggestion for the future. Just in case you're not at all at ease with words, there are also the authorities of famous people.
GIVE FOREVER ROSES AND ROSE BEARS A CHANCE
Have you ever heard your mother complain that her beautiful flowers have wilted? Would you like to offer her a flower that will stand the test of time? Then all you have to do is give your flowers a chance roses that last forever or in the Bears made from roses and have no expiration date. You can play with the colours and offer them in a package that looks more like a gift box. It can even serve as a decoration.
