Mother’s Day is coming soon and you want to give your mom something meaningful. But with the pandemic restrictions there’s only so much you can do.
As a daughter, I know how stressful this can be. But I can tell you by experience that the ideas I suggest here have been a success with my mom and with myself. Yes, I can give you my perspective as a mother too.
So, don’t stress. In this post you’ll find 9 surprisingly thoughtful mother’s day gift ideas that will melt your mom’s heart.
Are you ready? Let’s get started!
9 Thoughtful Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day that Will Make Her Happy
1. A Photo Session With You.
One of the things many modern moms enjoy is taking pictures of her children. But the fact is, the older they get, the less they’re willing to pose for her.
So, if you’re a grown-up-ish, take your mama to a nice setting where you can snap fun pictures of both of you together.
You’ll see how much she’ll cherish this moment captured in photos.
2. A Fancy Brunch
Surprise your mom by fixing a fancy brunch (or breakfast) with coffee, pastries, fruits and a glass of a sparkly mimosa!
She’ll be delighted with this 5-stars treatment!
3. A decorative plant.
Give her workplace a touch of nature that reminds her of you! A cactus is always a great idea and requires low maintenance, if she’s always busy.
And if she doesn’t like plants, give her flowers! They’re always appreciated.
4. A Fun Lunch
Let’s face it: taking your mom to a restaurant these days can be tricky. So, organize a picnic (respecting safety measures) at the park or your backyard.
Or if you can’t visit her on this day, do a Zoom call and have a virtual lunch together! For sure, I’ll do this with mine.
The point is to spend quality time with her!
5. A Heartfelt Message.
For those of us with limited time and budget, a phone call or a letter telling your mom how much you love her, is ALWAYS appreciated.
Please don’t feel guilty of not giving her a present. Whether you’re 3 years old or 45 like me, kind words from you will always be welcomed with joy!
6. A Service.
Moms always have a million things to do at home. So you can get creative and do one or several chores for her. Like taking care of the laundry, taking out the garbage, folding the clothes, putting away the dishes.
Give her the gift of rest!
7. A Gift Card.
Yes, I know you might be thinking: “But girl, that’s so impersonal and uninspired!” I get it. But lemme tell ya this: to this day, I don’t know a woman who doesn’t like shopping.
By experience I can tell you that my mom glows when she receives moolah to spend on herself. My humble suggestion.
8. A Foot Massage.
Just before your mom goes to sleep, rub a few drops of jojoba oil (or olive oil) on her clean feet. Take the time to gently massage several points of her feet. And at the end, put on some clean socks.
I bet she’s never felt so pampered!
9. A Fun Activity
There are several fun activities you can do together on Mother’s Day. Like watching a movie, playing a board game, doing your nails, a facial, or this nice hand scrub to soften your skin!
The sky’s the limit, so get creative!
Top Your Gift With Lots of Love!
Whether you give her an expensive or a modest gift, make sure to add your magic touch: love.
At the end, what a mom really wants is to see her children happy, healthy and feel appreciated by them.
Thanks for reading and happy Mother’s Day!
