Mother’s Day is less than two weeks away! Have you shopped for the mom in your life yet? Gifting and floral design expert Kate Law is the authority when it comes to shopping for the perfect gift and creating the most gorgeous floral displays for celebrities like Jennifer Lopez and Ellen DeGeneres. Kate was kind enough to join me for an interview recently to dish on the perfect floral bouquets and personalized gifts your mom will love on Mother’s Day (May 10th)!
Candace Rose: With Mother’s Day around the corner what advice do you have for people wanting to make an impression on mom and show her they really care?
Kate Law: “Well, Mother’s Day is the one day out of the year that we can really spoil our mom by sending a truly personal gift straight from our heart. No two moms are alike, and FTD’s one of a kind bouquets allow the customer to pick the perfect bouquet to match the unique characteristic of every mom on your list.
If your mom is a more elegant mom, I would suggest choosing our loving thoughts bouquet. Purple is such an elegant color and this bouquet is bursting with purple blooms and this gorgeous purple vase.
But if your mom is a more modern mom who likes to spend her time on Pinterest, then sends our Pink Exuberance bouquet. This bouquet has a great reusable pink lantern vase that will be perfect for her summer entertaining needs.
But what’s just as unique as our flowers is our different delivery options. If your mom’s a more DIY type of mom, then select a bouquet that’s shipped direct from FTD.com. It allows your mom to put the flowers together with her own unique twist.
If you want to make your mom the envy of the neighborhood, then select a bouquet that’s hand designed and hand delivered by a local FTD florist.”
Candace Rose: What are some other ways to gift her something that will be personal to her?
Kate Law: “Personalized gifts are trendier now more than ever and personalized gifts are a great option for Mother’s Day. Personal Creations is my go-to for all my personal gifting needs. They have everything from kitchenware, barware, even jewelry. Everything on their site comes with free personalization. Check them out at PersonalCreations.com.”
Candace Rose: Do you have any recommendations for people with busy schedules who still want to make an impact?
Kate Law: “Of course. People are busier than ever these days, and as a working mom with two kids under the age of two, I totally get it. That’s what’s great about ProFlowers. They’re making it easier than ever to send high quality flowers to all the moms on your Mother’s Day list. All you have to do is go to ProFlowers.com to choose one of their pre-selected bouquet bundles of two or three bouquets depending on how many moms you need to shop for, then fill out each recipient and card message and you’ve got Mother’s Day done! This is a great example of one of the ProFlowers bundles – I’d send this bouquet to my sister-in-law in Chicago, these lilies to my mom in Central Illinois , and this great potted pink rose plant is perfect for my grandmother in Phoenix (please see video above for photos of bouquets and details). Plants are a great option this Mother’s Day for low maintenance/high impact gifts.”
Candace Rose: Are there any other ways we can make the moms in our lives feel special this year?
Kate Law: “Of course! Mother’s Day is the one day out of the year that we really want to indulge our moms, so treat her to something that she wouldn’t buy for herself. Shari’s Berries has great options for that sweet tooth. These are their Mother’s Day strawberries, they’re big juicy berries covered in chocolate chips, swizzles and pink shimmers…but my new favorite product from them are their Mother’s Day cake truffles – they are to die for! It’s your favorite slice of cake reinvented in a bite size bit and covered in your favorite flavors including red velvet, salted caramel and s’mores. But what’s just as sweet as the treats themselves are the hidden messages of love that are throughout the box and revealed underneath each truffle. These sweet treats and more are available at Berries.com.”
Candace Rose: Well, thank you for the great gift ideas, Kate. Where can we go for more information?
