Is your mother not the cliché bouquet of spring flowers type of gal? Have you been buying her the same gift for the last 20, 30, or even 40 years? If you’re looking to change things up and give your mother something different this Mother’s Day, these 5 gift ideas may help you in your shopping endeavors!
A Bathtub Table or Caddy
These bathtub caddies are built to hold a book, a glass of wine, and a tea-light candle at chest length as the consumer sits back and enjoys a relaxing bath. This item can stand alone as a gift, or you can give mom the whole stress-free package–her favorite wine, a book by her favorite author, a candle of her favorite scent, and a bathtub caddy to hold it all.
Concert or Show Tickets
If your mother is in her 50s like mine, a lot of her favorite singers are old, worn-out, and performing their final tours before retiring from music. For this reason, giving your mother concert tickets is giving her one last chance to see her favorite musician perform live. This gift is perfect for the “mom who has everything” or any music-loving mom! If your mother is more interested in theatrical performances than music, you can splurge on Broadway tickets or buy tickets to a show playing at your local playhouse.
Tickets to a Paint Nite Event
Many local restaurants and pubs now cooperate with Paint Nite to offer two hours of painting instruction as you enjoy good company and drinks. This newly trending event is the perfect way to give your mother both a boning experience and a piece of artwork to bring home!
A Spa Treatment Gift Certificate or Spa Oils, Body Lotions, and Bath Products
A huge part of motherhood is becoming both financially responsible and selfless. Mothers are often guilty of putting the needs and wants of their children before their own to the point that they forget themselves. For this reason, giving your mother the chance to spoil and pamper herself is the ideal gift. Many local spas offer Mother’s Day packages, or stores such as Bath & Body Works can help you pick out great products for a home spa treatment!
A Gift Set of Her Favorite Gourmet Food or Drink, or a Gift Certificate for Her Favorite Restaurant
Some of the best gift ideas come from this question–what is something the person loves but would normally feel guilty about spending money on? Is it expensive wine , specialty teas and coffees, or gourmet chocolate? For Mother’s Day, you can buy your mom that special food or drink that she rarely buys for herself, or even buy her a gift certificate to a restaurant she loves but rarely visits.
