Each year we are bombarded with messages on how we should celebrate Mom. With wine, jewelry, clothing, cruises and more, what is the best way to celebrate Mom? Instead of guessing, we suggest you talk to your mom. Find out what she wants. We’ve talked to our moms and moms we know and put together a quick list of what Moms might like this Mother’s Day.
(Psst: It may not be a cruise….but check with Mom first)
What Moms Really Want
- Quality Time
Moms want quality time with you and your family. Even with Covid, visits are 100% possible. Seeing everyone together when Mom isn’t playing hostess is a perfect way to celebrate Mother’s Day. Take the guesswork out of Mother’s Day and bring a meal so you can spend the time visiting with Mom.
- An Experience
Instead of spending money on perfume, think about an experience your mom would love. Concerts, movies, shows and more are great experiences to consider. Is your Mom’s favourite band touring? Is there a night out at the local theatre Mom would enjoy? Check out tickets and dinner out as a package deal.
- Self Care
Mom works hard taking care of all of us, sometimes sacrificing her own needs for others. Mother’s Day and every other day is a good time to remind Mom that you care about her. Don’t just give her some body lotion and hope that she loves it. We recommend gifting her items she can use for self care, like our Unwind Spa Package – which turns her bathroom into a luxury spa experience, Feel Good Kit – which pampers her skin, or Skin Love Kit – which pampers her skin.
- Help With the To-Do List
Regardless of where your Mom lives, sometimes there are always a few odd jobs around her home that she could use some assistance with. Her car may need some tune-up style work as well. So ask your Mom what you can help with. Not comfortable with some of these tasks? Ask a friend or consult an expert.
While your best intentions may not resonate with your Mom, talk to her first on what she’s comfortable with. She might not enjoy you repainting her house without knowing it. But spending quality time together is a great way to build memories with no pressure.
With Mother’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to remind yourself and your siblings that Mom deserves to be loved, cherished and pampered. Spend some time with Mom this Mother’s Day.
