Happy Mother’s Day. Flowers and gift baskets are popular gift choices for Mother’s Day. Mother’s Day in the United States is annually held on the second Sunday of May. This year -2014 – it is May 11th. It celebrates motherhood and it is a time to appreciate mothers and mother figures. Many people give gifts, cards, flowers, candy, a meal in a restaurant or other treats to their mother and mother figures, which may include grandmothers, great-grandmothers, stepmothers, and foster mothers. Our personalized shopping service allows you to give your mom the perfect gift that you know she will enjoy. Flowers, gift baskets, gift certificates-we do it all.
Many people send cards or gifts to their mother or mother figure or make a special effort to spend the day with her. Common Mother’s Day gifts are fresh flower arrangements, chocolate truffles, salted caramels, breakfast trays with coffee, tea, and biscotti, or a beauty treatment or trip to a spa. Some families organize an outing for all of their members or hold a special meal at home or in a restaurant. In our business, Mothers Day is a very busy day for flowers and gift baskets.

In 1907, Anna Jarvis held a private Mother’s Day celebration in memory of her mother, Ann Jarvis, in Grafton, West Virginia. Ann Jarvis had organized “Mother’s Day Work Clubs” to improve health and cleanliness in the area where she lived. Anna Jarvis launched a quest for Mother’s Day to be more widely recognized. Her campaign was later financially supported by John Wanamaker, a clothing merchant from Philadelphia.
While Mothers Day is not a federal holiday it is surely a day of celebration. It is a day to celebrate your mother.
In 1908, she was instrumental in arranging a service in the Andrew’s Methodist Episcopal Church in Grafton, West Virginia, which was attended by 407 children and their mothers. The church has now become the International Mother’s Day Shrine. It is a tribute to all mothers and has been designated as a National Historic Landmark.
