Mother’s Day falls on May 8, 2016. In case it slipped your mind – don’t worry we’ve got you covered. It’s never too late to show your mom just how special she is. To help out, we’ve come up with 5 ways you can make her smile just by using your iPhone.
1. Send flowers with 1-800-FLOWERS
Flowers are a Mother’s Day staple. If you’re running short on time to make it to your local florist, 1-800-FLOWERS has you covered with an iPhone app that lets you order a beautiful bouquet while you’re on the go.
You can even try out 1-800-FLOWERS new Facebook Messenger Bot. Simply search for @1800flowers and start a conversation in the Messenger app. After answering a few questions, your flowers will be on the way to brighten Mom’s day.
2. Get some face time with FaceTime
If Mom’s house is too far away for a visit, a FaceTime call will let her see her darling son or daughter’s face even, even if you can’t be there in person. If she doesn’t have any Apple products (you could buy her a used iPhone from Orchard) there’s other options like Skype or Google Hangouts that can get the job done too.
3. Book a flight with Expedia
If FaceTime just isn’t enough, showing up in person could be an amazing surprise for your mom. If you live far away (and money isn’t an object) you can book a last minute flight using the Expedia App.
4. Send photos with Print Studio
If your mom isn’t on Facebook, she may not have seen those recent photos of you or your family. Turn digital into physical by ordering some prints or photo books. Have them delivered right to Mom’s door using the Print Studio app. They may not get any “likes” online, but a prime spot on the fridge door isn’t out of the question.
5. If all else fails… give her a call
If nothing else, you can always just use your iPhone as a telephone and give your mom a call. If you don’t talk to her often, just the sound of your voice can be enough to make her day.
