There are a variety of ways to spoil moms this weekend for Mother's Day.
The National Retail Federation says flowers and greeting cards are the top mother's day purchases. It is estimated that people will spend $3.2 billion just on flowers.
Linda Vinci, the owner of Braach's Flowers in South Norwalk, says the closer it gets to Mother's Day, the busier the store becomes.
"Mother's Day is a very big holiday because people order for their mothers, for their wives for their grandmothers, for people that are like mothers to them versus Valentine's Day, which is our next busiest holiday," says Vinci.
