Mothers_Day_cardMother’s Day is Sunday, sparking a mad dash of last-second gift shoppers rushing to find flowers, presents and reservations for their moms across Long Island and beyond.

Since most sons and daughters are well passed the age when cutesy homemade cards made in grammar school would suffice, everyone else has to find more grown-up ways to get creative.

But fear not, the Long Island Press is in the same boat. To help with this annual dilemma, here’s a list of Mother’s Day events to either shop for a gift or  bring mum herself on her big day.
