I was sitting at my desk earlier today sipping a beverage laced with caffeine a little too fast when it occurred to me that I should probably introduce myself. I’ve been with zuuzs.com for almost 3 months now and, at one time or another, you’ve probably seen my face, read my blog posts or received an email from me about the Blogger Partner Network. I should, at some point, say hello. Today is the day. Hello.

I have no shame in admitting that it’s been 20 years since I walked to the platform to grab a hold of my high school diploma. After weeks of waiting for that one moment, there I was. Diploma in hand. It marked a rite of passage in my life. The anticipation and excitement of graduation day is something that will never fizzle out. However, times have changed quite a bit in certain areas surrounding graduation. At the top of the list would be gift giving. Back then (starting to feel old now), things were a lot less complicated. We didn’t have high tech gadgets, laptops, fancy phones and eBooks. Electronics wasn’t even a gift choice that most people thought about unless it was a fancy scientific calculator.
A day in the life of a SAHM can be stressful enough what with getting everything in order, making sure everyone is well-fed and properly dressed, and not losing your sanity in the process. The last thing you need is a well-loved appliance to go on the fritz. That’s why today’s product picks are all top-of-the-line brands from quality retailers and have long warranties. Earn yourself a great appliance and some piece of mind!

Think back to when you were in school. There is at least one teacher that stood out and has had an impact on your life. Mine was Mrs. W. Back then, it wasn’t cool to focus efforts on anything related to art. Whether it was writing or watercolors, there wasn’t much to stimulate the creative minds that roamed the halls. Mrs. W. was one of the rare few who embraced those souls and provided an environment to encourage us young artists. Her classroom was my playground. Eventually, thanks to her encouragement and persistence, the world became my playground. Over three decades later I’m still writing, photographing the world as I see it and, once in a while, I flirt with a good brush and tube of paint.
It’s happened to all of us. Life gets a little crazy, our list of things to do gets longer, and by the end of the week the single Post-It note with scribbled reminders has multiplied itself. There are now three. Six. Ten. Somewhere amongst the stack is a colored square adorned with big bold letters reminding you to pick up a thoughtful Mother’s Day gift. You find it two weeks after you wrote it. Mother’s Day is now less than a week away. What do you do? Panic might be your first choice, but it’s not necessary. You can wipe away that panic-induced sweat from your upper lip. It’s not too late. Relax. Breathe in. Exhale. zuuzs is here.
Surprising mom with a fresh arrangement of flowers is a winner whether you’re handing them to her in person or sending them across the miles. If you’re opting for a delivered bouquet, a great place to start is FTD. They have a huge selection of Mother’s Day flowers, bouquets start at only $19.99, and you can save up to 25%. Another great pick is ProFlowers. Prices are slashed on gorgeous flower arrangements and, with some, you’ll get a little something extra like a free vase and chocolates.
Treat your mom to a day at the spa or a spa service of her choice with a SpaFinder gift certificate. These gift certificates are accepted at over 7,000 spas worldwide, so you’ll be able to find spas in your area and check out featured spas with special deals. Select spas and wellness centers are offering special Mother’s Day packages and, for a limited time, buy a SpaFinder gift certificate and get a free $25 SpaWish instant gift certificate.
Time is one of the best gifts you can give. Why not treat mom to a nice dinner. Whether it’s a local hole in the wall or a pricier restaurant she’s been wanting to try, it will definitely be a gift she’ll remember. Before you plan, check Groupon for awesome daily deals at local restaurants. Groupon also features deals on spa services, entertainment and outdoor activities. For the next two days, Groupon is also offering $40 worth of FTD flowers for only $20. Did the light bulb just go on? Dinner AND flowers…ah yes!
Still not sure what to get mom? A gift card to her favorite store or a prepaid card to use wherever she wants is a great gift idea. And, there are a several options in the area of gift cards. You can check out sites such as GiftCardMall and GiftCards.com. where you have the option to create your own gift card, purchase one from a list of popular retailers, or opt for a prepaid card to be used anywhere. The other option is e-gift cards, which can be sent via email and are often delivered within a 24-hour period.
Happy Mother’s Day to all from zuuzs!
