Mother's Day Gift Certificates Idea for Seniors

Posted by Trent Warner on May 1, 2014 1:05:00 PM

Mother's Day Gift Certificates

It’s almost Mother’s Day, and that’s probably got you wondering what gift you’ll get for your mom. Cards, flowers, and chocolates have been pretty played out, and many of us try to give gifts that serve a more practical purpose. So what do you get mom for Mother’s Day that isn’t a vacuum or a new blender? The gift of independence, that’s what.

As we get older, our parents do, too, and many seniors decide to give up driving. This usually means that they wind up relying on friends and family to help them go about their daily activities, but that often makes them feel like they’ve relinquished their independence.

Imagine not being able to hop in your car every time you had to run to the store, go to the doctor, or see a friend; it’s a strange thing to consider when we’re so used to everything being readily accessible as Long Islanders. For many seniors, that loss of independence is one of the most awful aspects of aging.

Ollie’s Taxi and Airport Service has many regular senior customers who rely on our taxi services to get where they need to go. Whether they’re meeting with a friend for coffee, getting their hair done at the salon, or going to a doctor’s appointment, hiring someone who they can depend on to drive them where they’re going makes them feel much more in control.

Throughout your life you’ve looked up to your mother as a strong, capable woman; remind her that she’s still just as independent today by giving her the gift of controlling her day-to-day life.

Ollie’s Taxi and Airport Service Mother’s Day gift certificates can be purchased in any denomination. . For this holiday special, if you purchase a $50 gift certificate, you’ll receive $5 free; a $75 gift certificate, you’ll receive $10 free; and a $100 gift certificate, you’ll receive $20 free!
