Mother’s Day is close. I mean really, really close. While we may think that the mothers in our lives deserve a 3-day trip to Hawai’i and a thousand dollar gift card to her favorite store, that’s not always a realistic option for most of us. (And if you can give that to mom, do it!) For the rest of us, we have to get creative when it comes to showing mom just how much we appreciate everything that she has done for us!
Here are some easy and incredibly thoughtful gifts to give for Mother’s Day!
A Spa Day Basket
Relaxing and getting pampered at the spa might require time that mom just doesn’t have, so you might want to bring the spa to her! This gift can be made with a quick trip to the drugstore or a stop at a department store. Fill a basket with a facial scrub, a soothing face mask, essential oils (I would suggest lavender!), and a neck pillow for the bath! A box of chocolates wouldn’t hurt, either.
A Day Off
A mother’s work is never done. Print out a list like the one fond here and ask her to write down a list of things that she would like done. Write down a date for a day during the week (or a weekend afternoon, perhaps!) and tell her to go relax by the pool or…whatever she wants to do! While “it’s the thought that counts,” sometimes “actions speak louder than words.”
Put in an order for her favorite flowers (ASAP!) and choose something to put them in that can double as a centerpiece or decoration when the flowers are gone. Mismatched mason jars are rustic and fun, or just choose a nice vase that matches the decor in the dining room! It’s a thoughtful gesture that will remind her of you every time she sees it.
