Mother's Day Gift Ideas

Mani & Pedi Day

This idea for Mother's Day is so great because it is a gift an activity rolled into one! You can give a gift card to the nail salon of choice on Mother's Day, and then the two of you can plan an outing together. 

Sit and chat while being pampered! Your Mom certainly deserves it.

New plants for the garden 

Everyone loves a spring spruce up to their landscaping. Why not make it into an event with your Mom on Mother's Day? DIY Mother's Day gifts are always a hit.

Buy her some new plants for the garden and then make a day of planting them together! Wind down with some coffee or a glass of wine to admire your hard work and continue bonding.

The two of you spending the day in the garden together is sure to be the ultimate treat for her!

Breakfast feast, bring mimosas and her favorite local treats

This is an excellent idea for Moms of young kiddos! 

If your partner is a Mom, listen up! 

Give Mom a break from cooking (and the dishes!) by bringing her a breakfast feast with a Mimosa, preferably in bed after letting her sleep in. 

Bonus points if there is also coffee. And her favorite type of pastry from a local shop.

Yoga or workout class

Many yoga and workout classes are taking their class offerings outside as the weather gets nicer! 

Lace-up those sneaks and get your sweat on with Mom. You will both enjoy the endorphins from the workout and each other's company! A fantastic way to spend Mother's Day morning!

Keauty face mask, virtually or together at home

In our most recent blog post, we talked all about self-care! Taking the time to unwind with a Keauty face mask is the perfect gift for Mother's Day. 

Heat up your coffee or tea, put your face mask on and get ready for a night of girl talk with Mama. The best part about this? It doesn't matter if you are 8 years old or 98 years old. This is an activity for all ages.

Moms and daughters are sure to have a blast with this fantastic mask, sure to make your skin glow.

Cleaning service, while you go out shopping or do something fun together

Everyone loves a sparkling home, but most people don't like the endless chores it takes to make it that way. 

Many times, Moms are responsible for the brunt of this housework. Give Mom a break and take her shopping while the house gets a scrub-down!

You'll enjoy each other's company, and she'll come home to the gift of relaxation since the house will be spic and span!

Dinner and a movie date

No matter her age, when do you think the last time was your Mom got out to the theater to see a movie? It's probably been a while! She would love to go to a movie with you and then dinner afterward to discuss!

If you are in a position to do so, pick up the movie tickets and tab at the end of the meal as an extra touch to this beautiful gift of time you are giving her!

Paint and Pour

A glass of wine, a blank canvas, and your company? What more could Mom ask for?

You would be spending a night encouraging creativity in yourselves and reducing stress (yes, that's a real thing!) together. 

You'll come home with a beautiful memento of your time together that you can also use to decorate in your homes. 

It's like two Mother's Day gifts in one- a night out and a meaningful piece of artwork!

Lessons for something new 

Is there a hobby your Mom has wanted to try? Give her the gift of time together and continuing on with a hobby just for her!

Something like knitting or cooking would be perfect. You can do the first lesson together and get her a gift card or materials to continue. A little reminder that she should put herself first every now and then.

Craft something you found on Pinterest, together!

Gather the materials ahead of time for the craft and surprise your Mom with them. You'll have a beautiful time laughing and crafting together! 

The best part? You'll each be left with a reminder of your day together, and there is no better gift than a reminder of time well-spent with loved ones.
