One of the sweetest holidays is coming up - Mother’s Day! This annual May holiday is an opportunity to show your mother, or the mother figures in your life, how important they are to you. Sometimes it can feel like there is a lot of pressure to find the perfect gift for all the mothers in your life, but it doesn’t need to be stressful. First of all, remember that truly the best gift you can give is time. Plan to spend the day with your mother(s), and, if you can’t get together with all of them on the Mother’s Day holiday, plan something special in the weeks leading up to or following the May 14th holiday. Whether you take them out to brunch, get tickets to a special activity to do together, or simply spend the day on the couch sharing stories and watching a movie, you can’t go wrong. Trust us, your mother just wants to spend time with you!
However, if you do want to give a gift they can hold, we suggest sticking to something useful. Think about their interests and curate a special basket just for them, filled with hand-picked gifts. The more thoughtful and personalized, the better.
To start out, select a nice basket large enough to hold lots of goodies. We suggest picking a basket that can be reused - perhaps a rope or woven basket. We love gift packaging that can be repurposed! Then, get to work picking out the gifts to fill the basket with. Below, we’re sharing some suggestions that you can either replicate, or use as inspiration. We have ideas for every type of mother in your life, no matter their interests.
Before we dive into the gift recommendations, we’d like to note that you really should recognize, thank and treat the mother figures in your life year-round, and not just on Mother’s Day, but, it is nice to really spoil them on this special, annual day. Additionally, we are sending love and good thoughts to anyone who finds Mother’s Day to be a difficult day, for any reason. We are thinking of you, too, and hope that you can spend Mother’s Day doing something that makes you happy and at peace.
