She kissed you goodnight and bandaged your boo-boos when you were young. She cut the crusts off your sandwiches and made you your favorite food when you were feeling down. Mother’s day is coming up soon. Are you ready to celebrate your OG #QUEEN?
Spa Day Kit
Give your mom the perfect spa day on you with a DIY spa day kit. That’s say a lot, but you can get creative with this gift (and there’s no wrong way with going about it). Include the basics: scented candles, lotions, body washes, shampoo, conditioners, face masks, and etc. But then add some personal touches! What’s your mom’s favorite nail polish? Would she like some sweet treats like chocolates and cookies? Or does she prefer savory snacks like cheese and crackers? What about her favorite brand of tea or coffee? What’s her opinion on fluffy slippers (get her a pair if you know she’ll appreciate them)? These are some questions you should be asking yourself when you’re deciding on a gift for your mom!
Something new and streamlined
If your mom is a techie or if you know that she lives that on the go #fastlyfe, then surprise her with a new piece of technology. It doesn’t have to be the latest and greatest laptop or cellphone fad (unless she’s really into that). Just think about what her routine is like and there’s probably something out there that makes her life a bit easier for her. Does she lose track of her keys often? (No problem! There’s those tile keychains that keep track of your belonging for you). Or what about gifting a self-heating mug so she can get that perfect cup of tea/coffee? (That’s really cool!) Get innovative with your gift idea!
Like you, your mom has her own hobbies that she likes to indulge in! Whether it may be reading, gardening, exercising, binging on netflix, etc, it’s something that’s fun and enjoyable for her! So take some inspiration from her hobbies when you’re looking for a mother’s day gift. You won’t regret it!
Your love and support
You have your own life and so does your mom. But how often do you call home to talk to her? How often do you spend time with your mom these days? If you can’t seem to come up with a recent example, then you should probably do one or both sometime soon. Invite your mom to a mother’s day lunch! Surprise her by visiting home! Have a day out together to catch up! The point is don’t be a stranger, tell her how much she means to you!
Don’t worry too much about a gift if you don’t know what to get. It’s the thought that counts, and frankly, if you put effort into just being there and celebrating all the things your mom’s done for you, that’s a gift in itself. Let your mom know how much you appreciate and love her! After all, that’s what Mother’s Day is!
