Flowers for Mom Made Easy

Every year Mother’s Day sneaks up on me and I often find myself scrambling to come up with something nice to bring to my mom. With people like me in mind, we are making it incredibly easy for everyone to find flowers this Mother’s Day weekend; we’ve added a Flower Shops icon to our Search Toolbar. This tool lets you order flowers in advance or simply stop by on Sunday.

For example, my mom is in town so I got directions to the restaurant we’re headed to for brunch and then clicked on the Flower Shops icon to find a place to stop by on the way. I found a shop that was convenient for me, added it to my route and printed the directions to use this weekend.

You can also use the tool if your mom’s in another city. Simply get a map of her home address and click on the Flower Shops icon to find her local florists. You can even click thru to the flower shop’s website or find the phone number right from the info bubble of the flower shop you select.

I hope this tip helps you celebrate with your mom this weekend. Happy Mother’s Day!
