Sunday is Mother’s Day! If you haven’t gotten a gift yet, there’s still some time. Use these apps to get instant gifts that mom will love even more than those totally awesome coupons you give her every year.
Flowers are a classic Mother’s Day go-to, but ordering them never happens as early as it should. With BloomThat
, you can get flowers in 90 minutes. Right now, the app is only available around California’s Bay Area, but we hope it expands soon. Easily choose your flowers (all local and in season), tell them where to go, and a bike messenger will deliver to mom. Flowers start at $35.We also love: Florist Now
, which lets you set up alerts so you’ll never forget flower deliveries.Both apps are available free on iTunes.
See a Show
Seeing a Broadway show is a great way to spend an evening with mom. TodayTix
is a favorite of the Yapp staff. With the app, you can get discount tickets up to a week in advance, making it the perfect spontaneous gift. You’ll pick your tickets up in front of the theater before the show and voila! We also love: tkts
, the Theatre Development Fund’s easily mobile app works just like their infamous Times Square booth, getting you discount tickets day-of to any of your favorite shows.Both apps are available free on Google Play and iTunes.
A little splurge can go a long way. With Groupon Getaways
you can book a weekend escape where mom can relaxed and get pampered. Travel ranges from hotel deals in your area to all-inclusive trips abroad. We also love: Lifebooker
for spa deals at a discount.Both apps are available free on Google Play and iTunes.
Send a Note
Mom loves pictures of you, so surprise her with your face in the mail. Postagram
lets you simply snap a pic, type a message, and send a postcard to mom for $1. It’s not quite as easy as making mom a Yapp
full of photos and love notes that you and your siblings can collaborate on, but we love the personal postcard touch.Both Postagram and Yapp are available free on Google Play and iTunes.
