If you’ve already bought the flowers and made brunch reservations to fete Mom this Mother’s Day, congratulations and well done! For everybody else, don’t despair. We’ve got 10 really cool ideas that’ll show your love and make Mom feel like the queen of her castle all year long.
What Mom doesn’t love a home that’s spick-and-span? Give her a respite from the bucket brigade with a month (or two!) of a house-cleaning service.
Just make sure the maids leave Mom’s bathroom extra clean for the at-home spa day you’ve got planned. Present her with a fluffy white robe and slippers, prepare a relaxing soak, then surprise her with an at-home massage and mani-pedi. A quick internet search will locate services in your area.
If there’s a household task or fix-it you know Mom would really like done, do it. Nothing says “thank you for a year of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches” like finally replacing that burned out porch light.
Is there a mountain of paint chips growing on your dining room table? If so, grab one and follow this clever idea to turn it into a paint-chip bookmark that’s perfect for your green and book-loving Mom.
Does Mom have a green thumb? Surprise her with a gift basket full of all the things she’ll need to get growing. On the other hand, if she prefers inside gardening to the outside variety, try this windowsill garden collection. Add a trio (or more!) of cute bud vases to show off her garden lovelies.
If Mom’s idea of happy is having her favorite tunes wherever she goes, she’ll adore this Bluetooth and Wi-Fi enabled portable speaker that streams music (or news) from most of the popular services.
At the end of long day, Mom needs a good night’s sleep. With sumptuous bedding that makes her room feel like a sanctuary, she’ll be counting sheep in no time.
With only days remaining until the Big Day, you may not have enough time to pull this one off. But turn a treasured family photo into a throw pillow and you’ll absolutely melt Mom’s heart no matter when you give it to her.
