Many moms out there are getting ready to be feted on Sunday. Luxurious meals, maybe a spa gift certificate or two, a day off from the dishes... I won't lie to you, it's pretty amazing. Except we moms generally have our own moms to remember too, before we are lulled into a wine-and-chocolate coma of self-induced decadence. But don't worry, girl; you're covered. If you've been priming for your Big Day and maybe forgot your own mom, Amazon offers two-hour flower delivery for Mother's Day. For when you want to send the very best, at the last possible minute.
Amazon is showing a little love for the largely under-appreciated procrastinators out there by offering two-hour flower delivery through Prime Now, a free delivery service available exclusively for Amazon Prime members. Not a Prime member but still want to make sure you stay in your mom's good books? You can sign up for a free 30-day trial right now. Prime members can order flowers from vendors like Eataly, Bristol Farms, Sprouts' Farmers Market and more on May 13 and even on the actual day, May 14, to have flowers safely in your mother's hands (the same ones that changed your diapers, need I remind you) in time for supper.
Of course, there are a few small catches; for instance, you have to live in one of these 35 cities in the United States (Canada strikes out again, thanks a lot) to take advantage of the offer. So if you decided to move out to one of those quaint farmhouses in the idyllic countryside... I pray you are more prepared than I. Otherwise, you'll have to try your local at your local florist, who was most likely booked up months ago.
If you do happen to live in one of the designated cities and would like to send your mom more than the traditional flower bouquet, Amazon Prime offers plenty of options. You can send your beloved mom anything from jewelry to a bottle of wine, beauty products, or even send her food from her favorite restaurant. Deliveries start early in the morning and last until late in the evening.
For those of you who want to take procrastination to an epic level, Amazon Prime offers one-hour delivery in select cities starting at eight dollars. But even I think that's pushing it.
I would love to tell you that your mother won't care if you remember her on Mother's Day, that you're off the hook, but I would be lying to you. Sure, maybe she really doesn't mind... for now. But at the end of the day, she's your mom, right? She knows things about you.
Just let that sink in for a minute. And go order some flowers.
