Celebrating Moms on Sunday, May 13th

Happy Mother’s Day!

40+ countries all over the world celebrate Mother’s day. We honor mothers and motherhood, and show them our love and appreciation! We give hugs and kisses, create cards, and give flowers and gifts!

What’s your Mom’s “The best Mother’s Day Ever”?

Here are some tips: 

    • Let Mom sleep in;
    • Give mom a day off;

    • Offer her favorite drink in bed, even if it’s a glass of water!
    • Leave Mom some love notes all over the house

    • Invite Mom to her favorite place – park, zoo, museum, shop, spa;
