The South Shore celebrates mom with flowers, spa days and more

After two years of mellow Mother’s Days, families are venturing out for the holiday and returning to old routines. Flowers have been ordered, reservations made and South Shore residents have purchased tens of thousands of dollars worth of gifts.

The National Retail Federation predicts record-high spending of $ 31.7 billion, up from $ 28.1 billion spent for Mother’s Day in 2021. Greeting cards followed by flowers and special outings top the federation’s survey of what consumers will purchase most of this year.

“It’s always a big holiday for us and we love making everybody enjoy it with sending flowers,” Missy Battista, owner of Kingston Florist, said.

Battista said tulips, hydrangeas and gerbera daisies have been popular picks this year. Customers come looking for “bright and cheery,” long-lasting flowers, she said.
