Mothers Day Gift Guide - Stay Home Edition
Wondering what to get the moms in your life this Mother’s day? While get-togethers, in-person shopping, and outings may be out of the question, for now, that doesn’t mean you can’t give the moms in your life a memorable gift. Here are a few ideas for showing your love this Mother's day.
For the moms who live in the same home as you - you can show her your love and appreciation in many different ways. Here are a few ideas:
Give the gift of togetherness with a family dinner, one that mom doesn’t have to shop for, prepare OR clean up after. No matter what you cook, she is guaranteed to appreciate it.
Maybe mom is craving a little alone time, give her a coupon for an “at-home spa session” a few hours to herself without interruption - you can prepare her favorite beverage, a book, and have warm fluffy towels ready to go to make it extra special
Another family-friendly option is to give mom “tickets” to at-home movie night with a movie you know she will enjoy, let her be the queen of the couch and be sure to have her favorite snacks and cozy blanket ready.
If you feel that you have to purchase something, a gift card to a store that has something you know she would love (and even better can buy online) is a great option as well.
For the moms in your life who don’t live with you, something that you can mail or drop off will be your best option :
Prepare a slideshow of your favorite family photos from the last year and send it to her with a thoughtful note
Create a video or schedule a video chat session with your mom or grandmom to tell them that you are thinking about them and share what you would like to do with them the next time you see them
