What Moms Want For Mothers Day

Mothers day is fast approaching! this will be my 3rd year on the receiving end of Mothers Day and here’s what i’ve learned so far. Flowers and jewelry are great, however, there a many other ways to show the matriarchs of your family some love. If you’re still trying to figure out what to do for mom here are a few quick suggestions:

SPA DAY

Alone time for moms doesn’t really exist. Trust me when I say that we savor any peace and quiet we can get! Find a local spa and treat mom to a relaxing day.

A CLEAN HOUSE

Usually by midday, the house is a mess again. The ongoing cycle of cleaning and recleaning feels like insanity. It would be a dream come true to wake up to and fall asleep to a deep cleaned house without having to be the one cleaning for once.

A NIGHT OUT

I can count on one hand the amount of times I have gone out at night and had some fun this year. The movies, dancing and bowling are all good options.

FOOD

Don’t let mom cook today! Make her favorite dishes. If you aren’t much of a cook, order in! It’s really that easy.

TRIP/STAYCATION

Experiences are a priceless gift. Even if you can’t get out of the city or country, try finding some local things that you can do. One of my favorite things is to find new things in my area to do and be a tourist. If mom likes art, find an art museum or if she likes adventure, find a new hike or even a theme park.

PHOTO ALBUM

Our phones are full of pictures, sometimes you can forget about them. A photoalbum is something tangible and timeless. Pick your favorite moments with mom and put them in a book that will last forever. There are a few ways you can go with this: Order prints. Print out photos and put them in an album. Or if you’re creative, try scrapbooking to add a personal touch.

PHOTOSHOOT

Speaking of photos, when was the last time mom got some professional photos taken? Most moms take pictures of their kids and aren’t in many photos themselves. And when they are in the photos, usually they’re looking a hot mess. Portraits are so important to have, when you look back through the years it’s a good way to appreciate all of your personal chapters in life.

HAIR/MAKEUP/NAILS

Usually Moms are the last ones to take some time for themselves. Going to the salon and getting pampered is an instant confidence booster.
