Last Minute Gifts She’ll Love
If you’re like me, finding the perfect gift for Mother’s Day is challenging. My mom truly deserves the world, but that’s not a very practical (or possible) gift. Here’s a list of thoughtful gifts to give Mom if you’re stuck!
Flowers from the Farmers Market or a local grocer:
Mother’s Day flower bouquets are wonderful. They can be bright and beautiful…and expensive! Our advice: try to piece some flowers together that you think your Mom will like. It doesn’t have to be an elegant, over the top arrangement. Simple and sweet will do the trick. To match your self-assembled bouquet, make Mom a card as well. No matter what your age, homemade cards are always a tear-jerker.
Date-Night Gift Card:
Whether your Mom has a favorite coffee shop, ice cream hideout, or spa getaway, getting her a gift card for something you can do together will be special. Quality time with Mom is sometimes the best gift you can give and the best gift she can receive.
If your Mom said “don’t get me anything this year,” or, “I want something practical” this is the perfect option! Collect a few items that remind you of her: her favorite coffee, the kind of mascara she wears, the types of socks she likes, the shampoo in her shower. These are the little things that make your Mom unique (and the greatest!) Once you’ve bought the items you know she already loves, write a note about each one of those things and why they remind you of her. (Example: I always know what kind of coffee to buy because this is your favorite…) Make it as sweet, sappy or funny – you choose!
Mother’s Day is one of the busiest brunch days of the year: Every mom loves brunch. Instead of fighting the crowds and waiting in line, try to whip up a homemade brunch for your Mom. Here are some ideas:
Waffles with blueberries
French toast bake with blueberries, strawberries
Spinach, mushroom and feta quiche
Most of all, enjoy this special day with mom!
Happy Mother’s Day
