Many people struggle trying to come up with ideas for Mother’s Day gifts that will show mom just how much she means to them. It can be hard to find something that you know mom will like and that will be something that’s just for her. This means you’re going to have to put some serious thought into the perfect gift for Mother’s Day, here are some ideas to get you started.
– Pamper mom with a rejuvenating spa day at home. Fill a basket with a few bath bombs or a jar of bath flakes, as well as a plush towel, loofah, bath sponge, and maybe a wonderful body wash. You can add a pretty candle, a tub caddy to hold her book and cup of tea as well as numerous other accessories that will ensure she has everything she needs to relax and enjoy some much-needed quiet time.
– A beautiful candle will always be appreciated. You can choose a unique terrarium candle, a lovely hand carved candle or a candle with a design or color scheme that you know mom will love. Consider opting for a high-quality candle, such as a soy candle; these candles typically offer a longer burn time and they are healthier to burn because they don’t release toxins into the air.
– Subscription Beauty Box. You’ll definitely have plenty of options with this gift idea. Many companies offer monthly gift box options that range from quality beauty products to the latest skincare products. There are even gift box subscriptions that include items for destressing and relaxation, such as aromatherapy candles and diffusers. Mom’s work hard, help her take some time for herself with a fun monthly subscription box.
– Jewelry is always a great gift idea, especially for Mother’s Day. There are earrings, rings, and necklaces designed for mothers. They typically have a gemstone for each child’s birth month and make excellent gift ideas that any mom would be proud to wear. Add a handy travel jewelry organizer with your gift and she’ll be able to easily take some of her favorite jewelry items with her when she travels, whether it’s for a few days or an extended vacation.
– Give mom the gift of your time. This might seem cliché, but mom’s love spending time with their family and as the kids get older, it can be hard to carve out that special time together. Make a plan to have a monthly family dinner or set a brunch date to take mom out for a lovely meal. You might even want to give her a coupon book for a family game night, lawn mowing or help with household chores. Whatever it is that you think your mother would appreciate, add it to the coupon book. The point of the gift is to give of yourself.
– Paint by Number Kit. Even if your mom isn’t the artistic type, a paint by number kit can be a wonderful way for her to relax and enjoy something unique. We all remember having fun with paint by number pictures when we were kids, but the kits that are now available for adults are absolutely stunning. She’ll be able to create a lovely painting that she’ll be proud to display. Many of these kits come with pictures of famous paintings. She’ll enjoy the creative side of this activity as well as an opportunity for some personal time to relax.
– Weighted Blanket. Many people have trouble sleeping through the night and this seems to be a common problem with many moms. A weighted blanket can be a great way to unwind and let the worries of the day slip away. These blankets have become very popular because they tend to help people enjoy a deeper and more relaxing night’s rest.
– A silky smooth pajama set. If your mom tends to not indulge in special things for herself, it’s time you help her enjoy a bit of luxury. A pair of silky-smooth pajamas will feel luxurious and it’s a great way to pamper mom with that extra bit of comfort. Don’t forget a pair of matching slippers.
– Magazine subscription. Mom might not have a lot of free time on her hands, but she’ll likely find little bits of time throughout the week when she can pick up a magazine and read a quick article while enjoying a cup of coffee. This is a great idea, especially if you choose a magazine based on her interests, such as gourmet cooking, gardening, photography, etc.
– Scrapbook. This is a gift that will take a little time to organize, but it will be worth it! Make a scrapbook for mom filled with memories you’ve shared over the years. Include poems, photos, notes and inside jokes. It will be a gift your mom will cherish.
