This Sunday is Mother’s Day! I only know because my mom called on Monday to tell me we’re BBQ-ing at the house this weekend. Oops! So as I scrambled to find a gift I put together this list of gift ideas for your mom / mother figure / mom friends…
1. The #1 gift for any busy lady in my book is a massage or spa gift card.
Bonus: If the mom in your life has little ones include a card offering to watch the kiddos while she relaxes.
2. Photo Calendar or pretty frame with a family picture. I made a photo calendar for my mom last Christmas and she LOVED it!
I made it online through Costco. But there are a lot of places that do this. Since it’s already May you can save this idea for Christmas and print out a really good family photo in a pretty frame.
Bonus: Stitchfix now has maternity fashion deliveries for moms-to-be!
Pro tip: A lot of “Mom” jewelry seems a little over-the-top / tacky. Make sure it’s something similar to jewelry she already wears.
5. Time! For some reason our moms like us even when we’re unlikeable.
Invite her to lunch or a movie or to get pedicures. Moms love that stuff
6. Wine. Moms need wine. Or at least mine does to put up with me.
If you don’t know what kind she likes peek at her stash or go to Trader Joes or Bev Mo and ask the people there 100 questions until they need wine too and then buy whatever they say.
Bonus Tip: You can buy a lot of gift cards online and email them to whoever you want! This way if you won’t see your mom on Mother’s Day or live far away or totally forgot and are reading this on Sunday morning…. you’re covered.
Question: What are you getting your mom / mom figure?
Me: I actually have a cool 5K shirt from her I got from Sierra Trading post. She took up running last year and has done a few 5ks now!
