While we believe you should see every day as an opportunity to honor mom, Mother’s Day is just another wonderful way to pay homage to the woman who kissed all your boo boos and cheered for you at every game. Buying gift’s should never be a chore, all you have to do is listen closely because even without knowing it she’s dropping plenty of hints.
What does she need?
Often a mother will go without so she can make sure her family has everything they need, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t things she might need! Does she talk about family or friends outside of the city? She might like a tablet loaded with Skype, or personalized stationary for handwritten letters to keep in touch. Does she love entertaining? An adorable platter might be perfect for her next party. If she ever complains about dad’s slippers or the family dog, a lovely new Lampe Berger kit will help rid her home of those pesky aromas and fill it with a wonderfully fresh scent!
What does she want?
Outside of spending quality time with their favorite people, moms rarely like to indulge in those things that make them happy. Whether it be some much needed spa time or shopping for something extravagant, splurging on mom can never be a bad thing. Does she like jewelery? A unique piece might be right up her alley.
What does she love?
Technology, books, or fashion – fill up her goody bag with the things she loves most. If you aren’t sure what those things are, ask dad! Does mom love art? These beautiful framed photographs of flowers featuring inspirational quotes are sure to put a smile on her face.
Of course, this is also one of the only times it is totally acceptable to give her a gift card to her favorite store so she can stock up on her favorite products.
Memories that will last a life time
Alternatively, as mentioned above, moms really love to spend quality time with their favorite people – you! Try something new, exciting or fun – a pottery or cooking class, biking and hiking a new location, even a vacation to somewhere exotic! She’ll treasure the memories you make more than anything.
