Every year I often go through the same routine with Mother's Day, I think of great things months but...fail to execute those ideas. That means I am THAT person, scrambling around the mall the day before mother's day desperate for inspiration on what to do. This year though, I wrote some tips on what to do if you were like me. It's not too late to create a beautiful mother's day.
Brunch and Self-Care
I love this first idea because it combines the two things people love most - eating and pampering! Take Mom out for a beautiful brunch followed by some self care at a spa or salon. All booked out? You can re-create the spa at home! Just pick up some scented bath bombs from your local store, fill the tub and sprinkle with spring flowers. Quick and easy - and sure to put a smile on your mom's face!
Trying to Save Money? Try This Instead!
These days saving money is important, so don't worry I have ideas for that too! When I was younger, an easy mother's day gift for me and my sister would be us doing chores around the house. I know...it sounds silly if you're an adult. But while you may be an adult, you will always be your mother's child in her heart. Doing chores around the house will not only put a smile on her face, but it can create some pretty nostalgic moments as well. Not into cleaning? Try binge watching a new show together. You're probably constantly busy and there's no doubt your mother would appreciate some quality time bonding while watching TV.
Take a Trip Down Memory Lane & Create New Memories
I don't know about your mom, but my mom is CONSTANTLY asking me for new photos of my life, dogs and cat. I'm often too busy to send them, but mother's day would be a perfect day to bring some of the memories to life. Consider printing out some new photos of you, your family or her that she hasn't seen before and build a collage somewhere she'll be sure to see it. It could be fridge, room door or anywhere special really.
If you wanna take it up a notch, consider running by Target and picking up a cute little polaroid camera to make new memories every time you come to visit!
Buy Her Some Jewelry
When all else fails, you can't go wrong with flowers and jewelry. If possible, try to pick a piece that will have sentimental value. After all, the cost really isn't what matters, it's the feeling of love and appreciate you convey with the gift. If you need ideas, check out our special Mother's Day Collection here.
