Using ser+preposition para (not estar) to indicate a recipient

In Spanish when we want to say who something is for we use verb ser followed by the preposition para. Have a look and listen to these examples:

El regalo es para mi madre.
The present is for my mum.

Las flores son para Carlota.
The flowers are for Carlota.

¿Esa carta es para ti?
