It's day three of our Mother's Day giveaway week and the Mother of All Giveaways continues. Today we announce the winner of our Fine Art of Family Giveaway at the end of this post and continue with two prizes, Mommy Cards and Flowers, plus learn about another only in New York unique gift idea for any mom in your life. I don't know about you guys, but being that Mother's Day is still a new holiday for me, I get sort of carried away and forget that I need to get something for my mom.
Mommy Calling Cards
If you've ever tried to exchange info with a new friend at the playground only to realize that you no longer carry things like pens, then Mommy Cards are for you. The new business cards for parenting, they include your name, your children's names and your contact information. You choose from 9 elegantly designed cards and can customize in any way you like, I really like the Indigo and Swirls for Sarah designs. For this Mother's Day giveaway we are happy to give one lucky reader 100 customized cards and a carrying case. And, for anyone interested in ordering cards for yourself or for another mother, there is a special 10% discount for Mommy Poppins readers when you use the code 'mothersday' which will be valid through Sunday.
What could be more classic for Mother's Day than flowers? And there is still time to order flowers from 1800 Flowers and get them to her on time! They really do have a ridiculously large array of flowers to choose from, from purple carnations to the classy Martha Stewart line which serves up beauties like elegant bouquets of orchids. We are happy to let you know that as part of our Mother's Day giveaway week one lucky reader will receive a $50 gift certificate to 1800 flowers to pamper yourself or someone else with any flowers you choose, I really like Martha's White Queen Anne's Lace and Hydrangea arrangement, oh Martha, you had me at flowers.
Plant Flowers in Her Name
And, here is another unique Mother's Day gift, you can give flowers for all the city to enjoy by having bulbs planted in Central Park in Mom's honor. With a donation of $1.50 per bulb (minimum $75), the Central Park Conservancy will plant her daffodils or tulips in the Park. The person you are honoring will receive a certificate indicating the number of bulbs planted and the date of the gift. For more information, you can contact Wendy Fortune at 212-310-6608 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
