7 Gifts Every Mom Really Wants this Sunday, May 8th
Your Mama really is fantastic. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of great Mother’s Day gifts that cater to Mom’s innermost wants. What is she missing out on because of her busy schedule? What can you give her that helps relieve stress? What can you give that truly expresses how much you love her? Here are your obvious and not-so-obvious answers!
1. The Gift of REST
Let the woman sleep.
Sometimes the gift is doing nothing at all. Mom wakes up early every morning. From breakfast to dinner, she is nonstop. Support the slowdown and let her sleep in this Mother’s Day. A full 8 hours does wonders for your health and we all know Mom would benefit from the stress relief. Keep the curtains closed and remember to brew a fresh pot of coffee for when she wakes up. Even if it’s past noon.
2. The Gift of RELAXATION
Find Mom’s zen.
Sometimes Mom isn’t a sleep in kind of person. That’s okay. Instead of rest, give her relaxation. Yoga, meditation, tea time, a morning walk, or simply a moment to breathe. Or take it to the next level and buy her a spa day! There’s nothing more relaxing than being pampered.
3. The Gift of LITERATURE
Help Mom get to the final chapter.
The only time Mom has to read her book is right before bed. If she’s like many bedtime readers, she wants to read more, but she’s just too tired. This Mother’s Day, find her book laying on the bedstand. It’s the one with the bookmark in the first quarter of the pages. Set up her favorite spot; fluff the couch cushions, light a candle, make a cup of tea with a sweet snack, and present Mom with her reading haven! If she doesn’t have a book, you can always buy her one. A favorite with mother’s of all ages: Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens.
4. The Gift of EXPLORATION
It’s Spring. Take Mom outside!
In May, the birds are chirping, the sun is shining, flowers are blooming, and the warm sun is inviting us all outdoors. Plan a fun hike, picnic, beach day, kayak trip, or other outdoor activity with Mom. The endorphins will flow. The exercise will be plentiful. And who could deny that one of the greatest gifts you could give Mom is the gift of Mother Nature?
5. The Gift of FAMILY
Just a simple day filled with quality family time.
A Mother’s Day gift doesn’t have to be complicated. Sometimes, quality family time is all a Mom could ask for. Get the family together for a movie night. Pick her favorite rom-com and make some buttery popcorn. Maybe Mom is more of a game night gal. Grab some board games and share an evening of friendly competition. No matter what activity you choose, the real gift is togetherness and fun!
6. The Gift of CUISINE
She’s kept you fed, now it’s your turn!
Mothers are providers. They do everything in their power to keep you cleaned, clothed, and most importantly fed. Turn the tables and wow Mom with an excellent breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner. There’s no experience necessary. There are millions of recipes across the web. Find a simple one and brighten her Mother’s Day.
7. The Gift of LOVE
Most importantly, Mom just wants to be loved!
It had to be a mom that came up with the saying, “It’s the thought that counts.” You could write an endless list of gifts that would be great to give Mom on Mother’s Day. The truth is, the best gift is something that cannot be bought or planned: That gift is your child’s Love. When searching for a Mother’s Day gift, make sure you do so with love in mind, and you can’t go wrong.
