No matter what your age is, you’re never too young (or old!) to treat your Mama on Mother’s Day. If this is a spouse or partner reading this for some inspiration, make sure you pass the message along to the little ones! And if this is a Mother that’s loving what you’re about to read, forward this email as a not so subtle hint (wink, wink).
Breakfast In Bed:
A classic yet never overrated gift that can start your Mother’s Day on a positive note. If you’ve got a youngster at home, pancakes can be assisted by partners too.
Clean Your Room:
You can’t say she nagged you to do it this time. Surprise your leading lady and have the room cleaned before she wakes up (and I don’t mean by shoving everything into your closet)! I promise this will be greatly appreciated.
Netflix & Chill:
Sometimes the best days are days of doing nothing. How about renting a movie or watching something on Netflix and spending the day in your PJ’s relaxing. Ahhh, sounds like heaven to me!
Moms, do yourself a favor and set this up beforehand so you’re primed and ready to be pampered. I personally love this magnetic chore chart that allows you to write down individual chores, who’s responsible to complete them and what day(s) they’re responsible for. Some chores might include:
- Taking out the trash
- Loading/emptying the dishwasher
- Cleaning your room
- Walking the dog
- Setting the table
- Doing the laundry
If you’re looking for gifts that don’t add clutter, check out our previous Mother’s Day blog!
If there are siblings that are looking to team up, find a way to get more bang for your buck and chip in for something bigger like tickets to see a show, a sporting event or a special spa day.
Gift of Gardening:
Growing up, it was a yearly tradition in my family to start planting flowers in the garden on Mother’s Day. Go to your local nursery and pick up some marigolds or other plants/flowers that can brighten up your Mom’s day and stay colorful for months to come. If gardening isn’t your thing, a fresh bouquet of flowers will also never go unnoticed! We highly recommend checking out Pemberton Farms a block away from our studio for any gardening needs!
Whether your mom is present or not, a great way to honor her is to have your family photos digitized. From there you can turn those memories into a book or just have them shared amongst each other on your computer. Check out our friends at Everpresent to find out more information.
That’s a wrap folks! You’ve still got a week to get this train going so make sure you don’t wait until the absolute last second to make her day.
