Gift Ideas That Celebrate Amazing Mothers
Mother’s Day is approaching, the day we celebrate not only our own moms, grandmas, sisters, and those “like-a-mother” figures in our lives, but a good day to celebrate ourselves! For all that we women do, raising these tiny humans, managing households, keeping the family together, often while simultaneously holding down full-time jobs, we deserve some recognition. Or even just a rest!
Here’s some ideas for “gifts” for Mom that aren’t the traditional “flowers and chocolate”, something she (or you) will truly appreciate! Share this post with your own loved ones as a hint for what they can get you! And not just for Mother’s Day. These ideas work great for birthdays, special occasions, or just a way to say “Hey, I see you. I notice all the hard work and sacrifice you are making, every day”.

Gift of Getaway
Even if you can’t give mom a full week’s vacation away at an all-inclusive resort, you can give her a getaway. From a few hours alone at a favourite coffee shop, a day at the spa (my favourite is Scandinave…you can read more about it here), to a couple days away, mom will appreciate an escape from the every day. My mom and I are heading over the border for a little shopping, dining and relaxing in Buffalo, NY!
Pursue a Passion
Is there a favourite hobby your mom enjoys? Why not give the gift of time and focus on her passions.
A gardener? Take mom for lunch and a visit to the garden center. An avid reader? Try brunch and browsing a local bookshop.
Every mom dreams of someone else doing the housework! Something as simple as taking care of the laundry, dishes, vacuuming and dusting for a day means mom can put her feet up and relax with an actual hot cup of coffee! Or splurge for a housecleaning service to come in for a few hours to give the house a once over!
Enjoy the Experience
Try giving mom a small token gift that hints at an experience to come. Pair a cookbook with a cooking class, wine glasses and a winery tour, or a tin of loose tea with a complete high tea service at a local tea house!
Charity for a Change
For the mom who has everything, or is living a minimalist life and had begged for no more clutter, consider donating to her favourite charity in her name. Stuck for ideas? Some great women centered charities are V-Day, Plan International’s Because I Am A Girl, and the Malala Fund.
How will you celebrate the amazing mothers in your life? I hope you also celebrate the amazing mama that you are! You deserve it!
