Are you prepared for Mother’s Day? It’s just around the corner! Make sure your Mom is feeling loved and appreciated this year on her special day. If you haven’t purchased that perfect gift yet, I’ve put together a great list of ideas that will be sure to please.
Personalized Gift Basket: Gift baskets are a wonderful idea. An even better idea is getting together all sorts of your Mom’s favourite goodies to put together in one basket! Gift baskets allow you to add your personal touches, making them extra special. You could even create a theme: Mom’s favourite snack foods, favourite make-up/personal care items, favourite seeds & gardening accessories, the ideas are endless!
Spa Gift Certificate: I’m not a huge fan of giving out gift certificates as they can seem impersonal. But, a gift certificate to the spa is a totally different story! Moms always need some time to decompress, and what better way to allow her to do this, than to send her off for a day at the spa! You could look in to a traditional spa or opt for something unique like Le Nordik near Chelsea!
A Homemade Gift: There are some great homemade gift ideas out there, ones that actually produce practical gifts! Log onto Pinterest and search “DIY Mother’s Day gifts” and you’ll be flooded with a wide range of tutorials on how to create that one-of-a-kind gift. This type of gift is also a great way to get the kids involved.
Take Mom out for a Meal: Material gifts are nice but taking Mom out for a meal and spending some quality time with her can be just as appreciated! Choose one of her favourite restaurants or try something new! Brunch is always a great idea on Mother’s Day. Add some flowers to her day and you’ll be all set!
Make her a Homemade Brunch: Invite mom over for a homemade meal! It doesn’t have to be anything elaborate, a simple pancake breakfast (with real maple syrup! will be sure to tell your mom how much she means to you. Add a fresh bouquet to the table and a personalized Mother’s Day card to top it all off!
How ever you choose to pamper your mom this Mother’s Day, she will surely to know how much she is appreciated. Visit my Facebook page next Sunday to share “how you celebrated Mom” this year!
