Mother's Day is this Sunday -- yes, we know it snuck up on you. Us too. So here are some ideas for the Best Mom In The Whole Entire World.

Want to order your mom a bouquet but not sure which one to pick? This Mother's Day quiz might be able to help you out.

Called "The Mother Plucker," the quiz asks questions such as "If your mom could be summed up in a #hashtag, what would it be?" to help you determine which of eight famous TV moms -- such as June Cleaver from Leave It To Beaver and Lorelai Gilmore from Gilmore Girls -- describes your mom the best, and based on the results, which type of flower she may most like to receive this Sunday. (According to our results, our mom is most like Claire Huxtable and wants some daisies.)

Now, on to picking out some flowers for the Best Mom In The Whole Entire World.

If you're not familiar with the San Francisco start-up BloomThat, they deliver bouquets in 90 minutes or less (for all you procrastinators), and they have a special Mother's Day tulip bouquet, "The Parker" for $40, which you can pre-order starting Thursday, or -- you can wait until you're about to pick up you mom for brunch and then order.

Another San Francisco flower start-up (you didn't think there would only be one, did you?), Farmgirl Flowers also has special Mother's Day bouquets, which will include peonies. They'll be delivering their flowers Saturday and Sunday, and have expanded their coverage for the weekend to include parts of Marin County, the Peninsula, and the East Bay.

After you give the Best Mom In The Whole Entire World a lovely bouquet you could take her to check out Exploratorium Free Day. From 10 a.m.-5 p.m on Mother's Day the Exploratorium on Pier 15 will be free for everyone (not just mothers), offering its normal mind-boggling exhibits as well as crafts and guest speakers.

Also on Sunday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.,Aquarium of the Bay at Pier 39 will be free for all moms and grandmas. They will have a Mother's Day card-making station as well as other crafts, presentations and exhibits centered around the mommies and babies of the sea life world.

If you're not sure which event to go to, ask the Best Mom In The Whole Entire World.

No, really. Ask your mother. It's her day, after all.
