The Best Food Deals To Celebrate Mother's Day

It's easy to take for granted all the laughter and cherished memories Mum has gifted you over the years, and as Mother's Day approaches, everybody is thinking about something special they can do to display their gratitude for Mom. From all the scraped knees and boo-boos that needed a kiss to the lessons she instilled and the times she pulled you out of a jam, Mother's Day is the perfect occasion to show her it didn't go unnoticed.

Expressing your appreciation for everything she does with a card is never a bad idea, but why treat her to a memorable time with you that will bring her authentic joy? From fine dining to quick-serve fare, many restaurants are hosting unique bargains on May 12 that you can take advantage of to show recognition for the matriarch in your life. Go the extra mile for Mom on a day dedicated to her like she goes the extra mile for you throughout the year, and take her out for one of these deals exclusively for her.

Fortune Cookie Flower Bouquet from P.F. Chang's

Asian chain restaurant P.F. Chang's is providing a truly unique way to show your mom you care with a fortune cookie bouquet.

You can make it up to him on Father's Day right around the corner). You can purchase the Fortune Cookie Flower Bouquets for delivery anywhere in the continental U.S. at pfcfortunes.com for $39.99.
