Can y’all believe that Mother’s Day is only 5 days away? Have you been able to find the perfect gift for your Mom (or mother figure) who has loved you even through those angsty teenage outbursts (sorry, Mom!)?Maybe you are struggling to find the right gift for your Mom this year? Or maybe the gift you were thinking about won’t make it to her in time? I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite Mother’s Day gifts that will be sure to make that Mom feels special and show her how much you appreciate
Find an event that you and your Mom can enjoy together and buy tickets for it
Maybe your Mom loves going to the ballet or the theater or maybe her favorite band is making their way to your hometown soon? Wouldn’t it be great to get her two tickets and suggest that the two of you go together?
When giving gifts to my Mom, I try to find experiences that we can share together. We both have more trinkets than we know what to do with, but finding time to hang out with each other can be a bit of a challenge with both of our busy schedules. Setting a date for us to do something together makes sure we get together and makes our time together even more special.
Get your Mom a gift certificate for a cooking class
My Mom loves to bake! So, a few years ago, I found a cooking class venue that taught us how to make soufflés. During those 4 hours, we had such a great time learning the technique to perfect our soufflés and even got a good laugh when ours decided to cave in after coming out of the oven. It was the perfect way to spend a Saturday afternoon together (and we even got a few great pictures out of it). Similar to the ticket suggestion, above, it’s the experience and time spend together that was the gift for both of us.
P.S. For all of you lovely readers in the Houston area, I would highly recommend getting a gift certificate/going to Well Done Cooking Classes. I have taken a handful of classes there and we have had a great experience every time.
Put together an at home spa gift box
I mean, what Mom doesn’t love a little spa day? Pull together some great products that she can use to pamper herself and relax a bit. If I was creating one, I would include a face mask, a Lush bath bomb, a beautiful bottle of nail polish, my Mom’s favorite iced tea and some Twizzlers Nibs (one of my Mom’s favorite candy).
Other things to include in the basket is a robe, slippers, body wash, a glass or tumbler to have her favorite drink in, or anything that would make her smile!
Write a heartfelt letter or card telling her how much you appreciate her
As I mentioned, over the past few years, I’ve been trying to move away from physical gifts that will most likely start to clutter the house and start finding activities that we can enjoy together. I also am a firm believer in affirmations and gratitude. This is where this gift comes in.
Have you told your Mom how much she means to you recently? Does she know how much you appreciated when she brought you soup when you weren’t feeling well? Or gave you advice about that boy in high school who crushed your heart? Or how much you appreciate the sacrifices she made for you and continues to make for you? Write it down. Find a nice card or beautiful stationary and write your Mom a thank you note for everything she has done for you. Maybe include a few pictures of the two of you and bonus points if you put it in a frame for her. I can almost guarantee that she will treasure this letter!
Give her a gift that will continue to remind her how much you love her, a subscription to Gwynnie Bee
Y’all know how much I love Gwynnie Bee and can you blame me? I mean what fashionista wouldn’t love an endless rotating closet with thousands of items in her size to choose from? If you are unfamiliar with the brand, it’s basically Netflix (when they had DVDs) for clothing sizes 10-32. You virtually closet the items that you would like to be sent to you and then you receive the number of items chosen for your subscription in the mail. Once you’ve worn it and are ready to send it back, you place it in the pre-paid envelope provided and a new garment will be sent your way. No washing or dry cleaning required. It’s all done for you by Gwynnie Bee!
This dress arrived on my doorstep recently and I am absolutely head over heels in love with it. Not only is the fabric thick and luxurious, but the cut is extremely flatter and it seems to fit me like a glove. It also has the added benefit of being able to be worn to multiple types of activities. I think it’s perfect for brunch, particularly Mother’s Day brunch, but can also be worn to the office.
Gwynnie Bee has thousands of casual items and work appropriate garments for your Mom to choose from and imagine how much she will think of you when a new package arrives on her doorstep? Plus, if you sign up in the next few days (until May 14th), you can use this link to take $10 off her subscription.
I hope all of your mama’s out there have a fabulous Mother’s Day!! I may not have experience with it yet, but I know it’s the hardest job in the world and all of you are amazing Superwomen!! Happy Mother’s Day!!!
