Mothers work hard year-round, which is why, every once in a while, it is important to stop and celebrate all the things they do. Mother’s Day is just around the corner and it is the perfect opportunity to remind the mother figure in your life what she means to you.
While morning brunch and flowers are always a classic choice, there are several ways to make this Mother’s Day extra special. Here are three of our favorite ideas to get you started:
Make it a “Mother’s Day Off.”
Celebrate everything that goes into being a mom by giving her the day off. Treat her to breakfast in bed or a clean house – take the big things she does every day or week off her plate for once. Or give her permission to get out of the house. An afternoon of wine tasting or enjoying the outdoors can be a perfect way to spend the day.
Think outside the box and give an experience.
Sometimes the very best gifts don’t come in a box or bag. If you are shopping for the mother who seems to have everything, look at giving her a new experience this year. For example, sip and paint evenings are a great creative gift idea that she can enjoy with her partner, friends or older children. You can also explore local fitness or art classes that she has expressed an interest in.
Give a gift that fits into all parts of her life.
Looking for gifts that step away from the traditional jewelry or candles? Think about something that could serve mom in all areas of her life. For example, the Touchjet Pond Projector turns any flat surface into a touch screen tablet, letting her use the device at work, at home or on-the-go.
