When to order Mother’s Day 2023 gifts to ensure on-time delivery

Mother’s Day 2023 is May 9, so you should get a head start on shopping for your mom’s special day. 

With the coronavirus pandemic easing up, consumers will enjoy quicker shipping times and more shopping options. 

This year, Amazon is bringing on the deals, and even a Mother’s Day shop that will make your shopping super easy. You’ll enjoy discounts on beauty, tech, fitness and more.

Amazon isn’t the only one bringing back some major markdowns. Top retailers, such as flower company Bouqs and bakery Milk Bar, are preparing for a ton of mother’s day deliveries.  

But despite deliveries moving smoother this year, customers should still order early to avoid a devastating “sold out” message. 

Gourmet food delivery company Goldbelly also said the early bird gets the worm when it comes to Mother’s Day gifting. They encouraged customers to order as soon as possible.

If Mom spent nine months planning for you, it’s only fair you plan a little extra in advance for her. So here’s some information to ensure on-time delivery this year.



“The Postal Service is ready to deliver America’s Mother’s Day gifts and cards utilizing our national network of mail processing facilities that processes and sorts nearly 430 million pieces of mail and packages to 161.4 million addresses at least six days a week,” The Postal Service told The Post. “As of March, USPS customer demand for package deliveries increased 28 percent compared to the same period last year. Due to the continued high volume related to the ongoing pandemic, we urge our customers to mail as early as possible.”

Parcel delivery

FedEx noted there’s been an increase in volume, and it’s working to ensure on-time delivery. “The COVID-19 outbreak has disrupted supply chains around the world. We’re continuing to operate in impacted areas as local conditions and restrictions allow,” said FedEx in a statement on the site. They also have instated a money-back guarantee for select Fedex Express services. So, you can get refunds if there are any issues with your order. 

The United Parcel Service, however, says it’s business as usual. “The majority of our services continue with the same expected delivery timeframes our customers have come to expect,” UPS writes in a statement. “While we have suspended our Service Guarantee in light of overall Coronavirus uncertainties, we remain committed to providing timely and reliable service.”


Amazon is pretty much back to normal. Prime members can enjoy free, fast shipping and will likely receive their gifts in record speed. So be sure to sign up to get your hands on some great mother’s day deals. 


Mother's Day Roses

You’ll be able to personalize your shipping experience with most flower-delivery companies. Companies like Bouqs and ProFlowers make it easy with local florists and easy to book arrangements. 

Bouqs says the final cutoff for delivery is May 6 around 10 in the morning. However, customers should aim to order around May 5 if they want to avoid any inconveniences. 

Ordering a few days early guarantees smooth delivery and the guarantee that your mom gets what she deserves. 

With many shopping options opening up and tons of competing buyers, sooner is still better when it comes to placing orders.
