With Mother’s Day right around the corner the clock is ticking to get every mom in your life a gift. Not just a gift, the best gift.
For many consumers, the coronavirus has put a spotlight on opportunities to celebrate and show their loved ones they care.
In fact, 78 percent say that celebrating Mother’s Day is important to them this year, given the current state of the pandemic. And this sentiment shows up in spending plans as well: On average, consumers say they plan to spend $205 on cards, special meals and other gifts for mom, approximately $8 more than last year.
Now is the time to plan and to find out what the best gifts are for the mother in your life.
Lifestyle Expert, Alle Fister, makes her top picks:
How to be smart with your spending:
Mom would definitely want you to spend wisely. So, make sure it is something she’d love and if you find the perfect gift, use financial sense and split your payments up with Afterpay. They are the leader in Buy Now, Pay Later payments, and partner with thousands of brands and retailers to offer interest-free installment payments to shoppers.
With Afterpay, you can get the perfect gift for Mom right away but pay for it over time by breaking up the cost into four equal installments.
Shoppers can refer to Afterpay's Shop Directory at Afterpay.com or through its app to browse all of their brand partners across both e-commerce and in-store. Right now, there's even a section dedicated to Mother's Day to make gift giving with Afterpay even easier.

Creating memorable experiences for mom:
Some moms want nothing more than to enjoy memorable experiences with their families. Show mom the at-home mixologist skills you've picked up during the pandemic by creating her a signature drink.
Create a spicy margarita cocktail for mom using 21Seeds Cucumber Jalapeno tequila. 21Seeds is a female founded, award winning, real fruit infused tequila with three infusions – Cucumber Jalapeno, Grapefruit Hibiscus and Valencia Orange - that are easy to drink and perfect for a low-calorie cocktail. Working with the most celebrated female owned distillery in Jalisco, Mexico, 21Seeds makes celebrating women a core value.
Teach mom how to craft cocktails like a mixologist and she’ll be able to impress her friends and family with a great tasting cocktail anytime.
21Seeds is available in most states across the country. Depending on the state, consumers can find 21Seeds at Target, Amazon Fresh, Walmart, and through delivery services including Drizly and Caskers.
