Floral businesses are being forced to work differently due to the pandemic this Mother's Day.
Flowers shops are not considered essential and are only taking online and phone orders.
Limited staff and increased regulations by the Center for Disease and Control are also posing challenges for these businesses looking for a revenue boost.
Despite the high numbers of unemployment, people are spending around $10,000 more for their moms this year, according to the National Retail Federation.
People are emphasizing gifts that can be used at home like books or electronics instead of outings or experiences.
A survey found that 66% of people say they're at least somewhat likely to celebrate the day virtually this year due to the pandemic.
