Woohoo! Mother’s Day is fast approaching. Are you ready?!
Resist the urge to take mom out for brunch. Everyone does it and it’s a madhouse out there. Also, resist the idea of making breakfast in bed for her. Unless you make everything, give her the breakfast, and walk away to clean EVERYTHING up. Let her eat in peace. Personally, I think it’s a better idea to let her sleep in while you take a gremlins out of the house, and you bring back her favorite donuts/bagel/pastries and a giant coffee. Again, you leave her alone to eat in peace.
Have you caught on yet?!?!?
In addition to that, some gifts would be nice. Feel free to go while and get some fun things. Maybe you should skip that spinning stone necklace in exchange for these awesome goodies.
-Bath and Body-
A Great Lipstick- Melted by Too Faced $21
I am loving lipsticks from Too Faced lately since they have great coverage and colors. Nudes are classic but bright colors are fun for summer. Just get her one that will make her feel wonderful.
Her Favorite Perfume – $60+
It’s just wonderful how when you give your mom a big hug and you take in a deep breath, breathing in her perfume, it takes you back to memories of your childhood.
Getting her a fresh bottle of her signature scent is a winning gift. Or pick up a new scent for her that is sure to become a classic.
Key, Wallet Tracker – TrackR $30
If mom misplaces her keys or wallet as much as I do, then she will probably love this gadget. It will make getting out of the house with keys in hand quickly and stress free. Instead of running around like crazy looking for her keys, she will be able to quickly locate them with the app on her phone.
Ultra Compact Portable High-Speed Charger- Anker $17
For the moms on the go, these portable phone charges are great. They help you stay connected, or at least on Instagram while at the park.
-Food and Drink-
Pineapple embossed wineglasses – Luminarc $32 for 6
Pineapples are super trendy now. Yay! So you can’t go wrong with gifting these fun glasses and a bottle of wine.
Then walk far away from mom so she can enjoy a glass of wine in silence. shhhh!!
7 In 1 Multi-Use Programmable Pressure Cooker– Instant Pot $99
This could be tricky. She might be offended that you are giving her a kitchen gadget, but
the risk might pay off when she tries it and falls in love with it. I am loving mine so I hope she loves hers too.
A fun mug- $15
I swear that it’s a real victory if I can manage to drink a cup of coffee without reheating it in the microwave. Why are morning so crazy?!?! At least a new large mug will be a cute addition to her collection. Hopefully, it will give her a good laugh when she retrieves it out of the microwave again and again.
And don’t forget to gift her favorite coffee or tea along with the mug!
Delightfully Delicious Macarons – $15- 90
Online order some macarons or stop by a local bakery to pick some up before visiting mom. I bet she will get a kick out the inventive flavors, like passion fruit, lychee, or lavender.
Activity Tracker- Fit Bit $99- $150
I have used a FitBit for the past few years and I have loved every step of it. There are all different styles of fitness trackers so get one that you think mom will like. The low profile Alta or the Charge with the heart rate monitor? So many options, so many mix and match bands to accessorize with it.
Fitness Membership – Orange Theory
If mom likes to push herself then have her check out an Orange Theory class. She will love to see how many calories she burned and how many splat points she earned during class. Then she can calculate how many glasses of wine she can have in exchange for the calories she burned during class. ha!
