Tomorrow is Mother's Day in the UK. As its a different date to the USA's, it has the potential to be be overlooked by expats, with no promotional material or cards in the stores here to remind us.
Many gift retailers offer the ability to receive reminders for events, year to year, so why not take advantage of that and never forget dear old mum back home? If you want to go the traditional route, and send flowers, you can do so and still support your local retailers by using Reston Floral Design in South Lakes or Mayflowers in Reston Town Center. They can deliver internationally, within a day, and then will remind you each year, in advance of the date, giving you time to plan ahead.
If you are clever enough to remember ahead of UK Mother's Day, Appalachian Spring in Reston Town Center have some unusual and beautiful gifts with a local flavor (or flavour) depending where you hail from - and they also ship overseas.
Whether you are a last minute oops-a-daisy shopper, or a plan-ahead-Polly, mother will not be forgotten.
