Mother’s Day is one of the most special days of the year to remind mom what she means to you and how much you love her. Some families spend Mother’s Day with extended family and others make it a personal day to enjoy with mom. Much like other major holidays, the day has special traditions in every family, often right down to the gifts. Flowers, breakfast, a spa day are all safe picks…but if you’re looking for a fun gift idea that mom will love, check out these ideas below.
If one of your traditions is to give mom garden flowers or seeds for the season’s vegetable plants, why not gift a complete set of gardening tools. Grab a fun gardening tools tote and fill it with new gloves, a hand cultivator, pruner, trowel and knee pads. Or, fill a new wheelbarrow with larger tools like a tiller, shovel and rake.
Gourmet cooking class
Even if mom is already a top-notch chef, a night at a gourmet cooking class can be the perfect night away from cooking for the family. Most classes are designed for all levels and wine and cocktails are served as you learn to cook a 4- or 5-course meal. If the class is offered at a kitchen supply store, she may be given a coupon to shop that night, so a gift card may also not be a bad idea to include!
In the ever growing Pinterest and at-home blogging world, there are endless DIY, homemade gift ideas for mom just a few clicks away. Try searching for “thoughtful homemade gifts for mom” or “DIY mother’s day gifts” or “gifts kids can make for mom.” You’ll surely find something thoughtful and cute for the kids to make for Mother’s Day. Good ‘ole handprint placemats will never fail to touch mom’s heart.
Luxury bath products
Head to your local high-end department store or online at a shop like overstock.com to find a luxurious bath set for mom this Mother’s Day. Buy light scented bubble bath, bath salts and matching candles for her to enjoy. If you gift the products in a basket, consider adding a bath pillow and an over-the-bath caddy.
