This year mother’s day will have a whole new meaning in my eyes. All of us won’t be able to go out and celebrate whichever way we normally would. For me, every year my husband sets up a 3 hour spa day surprise for me and I just show up, which is always nice and relaxing. However, that is not happening this year.
In my opinion, all the moms deserve a HUGE trip after all this is over. ha! Who’s with me? But while we all patiently wait, today I’m sharing gifts that moms would enjoy at home this year. It doesn’t always have to be fancy! Just something to make her feel special.
For the Book Worm Moms:
This is for all the book worm moms! Give her a stack of books maybe 3/4 with a ribbon on it with cup of coffee or chai. And basically leave her alone for the day while daddy handles the kids. This way mom can enjoy some time alone reading and enjoying a cup of coffee, chai or I mean even wine. LOL! Def check out my blog post with book recommendations. I’ve linked a few below.
For the Mugs Moms:
This is for all the mug collecting moms! All moms drink a lot of coffee or chai to get through our day during these quarantine times and momma can always use another mug to add to her collection. Here are some to get you started. Make sure to fill the mugs with some chocolates or serve her breakfast in bed!
For the Framed Art Work/Pictures Moms:
This is for all the moms that love framed artwork or pictures from their kids. It’s a super cute way to display kids’ art in a nice decorative away. You can use art that already been done OR make new art or pictures you may have and frame it.
For the Spa Moms:
Bring spa to your home! you can purchase pre-made spa kits or make one for yourself. Who doesn’t love some “me time” with some candles, bath bombs and a relax afterwards in a cozy robe. I mean even put a sign outside your bedroom door. DO NOT DISTURB. ha! Here are a few items to get you started.
For the Jewelry Moms:
These are for the moms who love wearing jewelry, especially small delicate pieces like myself. Something that you can wear on a daily basis.
For the Kitchen Gadgets Moms:
Although it’s hard sometimes to think of what to give mom, many of us end up in this section. And no it doesn’t have to be here is Tupperware, if you’re going to give her a kitchen item, let’s make it worthwhile for you, or your mom. And when I say gadgets.. I mean fancy coffee machine for all the coffee she will be drinking and a kitchen aid for all the cookies she will bake herself. HA!
Small South Asian Businesses Moms:
This one is def the closest to my heart because your purchases help their small business thrive. If you’re looking to support here are 3 gals that would be perfect to add to your list! They all create these in their homes so you know it’s coming from the heart. It brings me joy to say that I’ve met all three of these beautiful ladies in person and they are amazing inside and out.
