Useful apps for planning the perfect Mother’s Day gift
There’s no worse feeling than letting your mom down, especially on Mother’s Day. But this May 12, you don’t have to worry about forgetting a gift or getting something truly sub-par for dear ‘ol Mom. Just make sure you have a few apps by your side and everything will work out fine.
Even the worst son or daughter knows flowers go a long way toward saying, “I love and value you, Mom!” That’s why you should keep the 1800Flowers app close at hand. Even if you find yourself incredibly busy, spend a few minutes with the app and you’ll have a bouquet ordered. You can even get 15 percent cash back if you play your cards right. Just be sure to pass the savings back on to Mom — she deserves it.
Or, maybe you’d like to surprise your mother with a special dinner delivery? If you’re in the Seattle or San Francisco area, Postmates can help with that. The app specializes in courier-delivered items from your favorite stops all across the Seattle and San Fran areas. If you prefer to dine in with your mom, Restaurants.com always has a number of gift cards available and you can even get 20 percent cash back if you act quickly.
If you’re really pressed for time, there’s always a gift card. The Gyft app sells gift cards for all the major retailers, from Target to Gap to Sephora and more, so you should be able to find a gift card from a store Mom loves. Target is even offering 2 percent cash back at the moment.
The bottom line: Your mom took the time to raise you into a decent human being, so the least you can do is make sure not to mess up her Mother’s Day gift. Especially not when you have so many great apps on your side!
