UPS expects a busy Mother's Day on Sunday, May 11 and has extended delivery deadlines in some areas:
"Mother's Day is on Sunday, May 11. Due to heavy shipping volume the day before Mother's Day, UPS is making an operational adjustment for Saturday, May 10. On that day, we will relax the UPS Next Day Air delivery commitment by 90 minutes.
For areas with a standard commit time of 12:00 p.m., deliveries will be made by 1:30 p.m.
For areas with a standard commit time of 1:30 p.m., deliveries will be made by 3:00 p.m.
The commitment time for UPS Next Day Air Early A.M. deliveries on that Saturday will remain unchanged."
They have also issued these pickup/drop-off deadlines for on-time delivery...

Packaging & Shipping Tips for the Holiday Season
1. New boxes are the best, used corrugated boxes can lose 60% of their strength in one use.
2. If you want to reuse a carton, make sure the carton is fully intact, no holes, tears and has not been previously crushed.
3. On a used box make sure to remove any existing labels and addresses.
