May 10, 2012
The best gift you can give mum this Mother’s Day is your time, but planning celebrations does not have to be complicated with the help of White Pages® free online tools. Try one of these ideas to keep Mother’s Day simple, but special.
Rooted in ancient Greece, Mother’s Day was originally a day held to honour Rhea, the Mother of The Gods. These days it has become a bit more down-to-earth.
Make Mother’s Day fuss-free this year and give mum the gift of love by getting her nearest and dearest together for a family picnic. Use White Pages® MyList to collate all the contact details of your extended family and make contacting everyone simple.
Keep an eye on the weather in case your outdoor celebration needs to be moved indoors. Find four-day forecasts for your capital city using White Pages® national Weather Tool.
Remember to order enough supplies from your local butcher and baker if you are planning to cater for the whole clan. Dial up their contact information using White Pages® Business Search to make sure no one goes hungry.
If organising a picnic isn’t enough, and you still want to show your mum how you care, why not buy her some flowers? While it might feel like an easy option, flowers trigger happy emotions, according to a study1 by Rutgers in New Jersey.
In China it is tradition to give your mum carnations on Mother’s Day. However, with Mother’s Day one of the busiest days of the year for florists, be sure to reserve your bunch. Enter your favourite florist’s details into White Pages® Business Search to get its contact details a few days ahead to make an order.
Living abroad? A few thousands kilometres shouldn’t stop you from wishing your mum a very happy Mother’s Day. Figure out the time difference between you and your mum using White Pages® World Time tool and give her a call at a time convenient for her – it’s her special day, after all.
No matter your situation this Mother’s Day, a little love goes a long way, so give your mum a simple day to remember using the free and helpful tools at White Pages® Online.
