Mother's Day comes early in the UK

While Mother's Day isn't celebrated in the U.S. until May, the holiday is this weekend in the UK.

In both countries, Mother's Day is a day set aside to show moms, grandmothers and any other mother figures how much they are loved and appreciated.

However, a recent survey done by British greeting card company The Card Boutique found that many are going high-tech when it comes to acknowledging their moms on Mother's Day. According to Professional Florist magazine, nearly half (46 percent) of Brits surveyed say they'll send their moms a text message or Facebook message instead of sending a proper greeting card.

"It's always been said that the card you send says a lot about you - but sending no card at all says even more, unfortunately," Pam Gibson from The Card Boutique told the magazine.

Even if they're not sending cards, many still send their moms Mother's Day flowers for the holiday.

"This is a very busy time of year," flower grower Gary Shorland told the Daily Mail. "Although Christmas is our peak time, Mother's Day sales are condensed into about four days so it is busier."

Flowers are an ideal Mother's Day gift, as they can instantly bring a smile to the recipient's face. Whether you know your mom's favorite type of bloom or not, a professional florist can help you choose the perfect arrangement to convey your feelings and meet your budget.
