Mother’s Day is only a few days away, and after a year like no other, it is time to celebrate. Last year’s Mother’s Day probably was not what you had hoped it would be, since we were in the beginning stages of the pandemic. So, you may be trying extra hard to make Mother's Day something special this year. Continue reading below as we have found multiple sentimental gifts for your mother or any other women in your life.
For the Foodie... Cook Her a Meal
It may be surprising, but Mother’s day is the single most popular day for dining out, with an estimated 34 percent of all adults choosing to celebrate at a restaurant.1 If you’re looking to avoid the crowds, or your mom is looking for a low-key day at home, consider making her a special meal. Making a meal is much more cost-effective than having a big meal and drinks at a restaurant. Consider having a brunch with family or some friends at home rather than going out to a restaurant - especially if you’re celebrating with a sizeable group. Have everyone give a toast to the woman of the hour, pass around pictures and go that extra mile to make it a memorable meal for Mom.
For the Nature Lover… Gift Her a Plant
If the mother in your life enjoys gardening or has an impressive collection of houseplants, then gifting her a houseplant may be the perfect gift this Mother's Day. With the right amount of TLC, some houseplants have the potential to live for years while some may even live for decades.
Here are a few houseplants that require little light:
- Spider plant
- Christmas cactus
For the Adventurer… Book an Experience
If a mom in your life enjoys the outdoors, this may be the perfect time to gift her something you can do together especially since we have been stuck in our homes for most of the pandemic. Spending time with family is a great way to spend Mother's Day and is something all moms cherish. The gift of making memories together can be priceless.
Some experiences you could plan with your mom include:
- Booking a weekend getaway in the woods, by the beach, etc.
- Mapping out a road trip to visit some spots on her bucket list
- Purchasing admittance to a series of classes (cooking, dancing, pottery, painting, etc.)
- Finding tickets to see her favorite musician (live or virtually)
For the New Mom… Preserve Precious Memories
If there is a new mom in your life, consider finding inspiration in her little one. Simply turn a drawing they did into a framed piece of art, or be a little more creative and make an apron with handprints and footprints on the front. New moms will love having something from their baby they can hold on to for years to come.
For the Working Mom… Spoil Her With Subscriptions
If the mom in your life is always on the go, while balancing life at home with a professional career, consider something that will make her life a little easier. Maybe she’d enjoy a premium subscription to a music streaming service for her long commute, or perhaps a meal kit delivery service could make weeknight dinners less of a hassle. Or maybe she would enjoy a subscription to a television streaming service so she can watch her favorite shows after a long day of work. There are a variety of different subscription services you could spoil your mom with from wine, cheese, hot sauces or tea of the month kits, there is no shortage of subscription services to gift your favorite working mom.
