It's never too early to start thinking about Mother's Day (don't worry you have time—it's May 10th this year). It will always be a special day for me since both my girls were born on Mother's Day (five years apart mind you, so yes, lightening can strike twice). I remember as a teenager, I couldn't afford a delivered arrangement so I made my own and paid the kid next door a dollar to do the deed. Mom was delighted by the surprise and my ingenuity for not letting budget stand in my way.
Last week, I got a sneak peek at the new 1-800-Flowers Spot a Mom campaign. We come from every walk of life and have personalities as diverse as snowflakes. With that in mind, their floral and lifestyle team have put together a really beautiful array of affordable arrangements.
Full disclosure: I got some neat swag from this event, and want to let you know that up front (BTW: the Cheryl & Co. cookies were a delicious surprise). But, this isn't a sponsored post. I get lots of free stuff my day job but I only recommend things I'd actually pony up the bucks for myself. Take a look at these other cool gift ideas, and while you're at enter 1-800-Flowers Spotlight a Mom contest for the chance to give one lucky lady a luxury vacation.
Katja over at Skimbaco Lifestyle had a nice post on this event too. So check it out for some interesting details on this family-run company. Katja was also featured on Julie Mulligan's blog (she made that awesome flower-covered show below).
