Hey Dads! Yo’ kids! Hello anyone else who wants to do something amazing for a mom in their life this Mother’s Day, listen up.
You know, I have been thinking hard about this topic. I mean grinding the gears on what I think the moms in my life would want or would need to relax. So after carefully wracking my brain, I have come up with five gifts to give mom so that she can relax on her special day or relax after. Because the saying “If momma ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy” is the truth.
Five Gifts to Help Mom Relax this Mother’s Day
A room with a view. As a mom, I would say my ideal gift from my adoring family would be, an overnight stay in a nice hotel (can be local) with a great bed, room service and whatever I wanted on tv (or my favorite book). A 24-hour escape from looking for the socks, cleaning the kitchen, making the food, the refereeing, wiping butts, you know all the mom stuff we do in one day or one hour. And with that day, I would wear whatever I wanted. Order whatever I wanted to eat. And not leave my bed until checkout the next day. Well, or soak in a hot bath without being interrupted by a child who has to poop but can’t seem to use the other two toilets in my house.Did I mention the tub is directly next to the toilet? Yeahhhh. Or if the mom in your life is more outdoorsy, you can scoop her up an AIRBNB gift card.She can pick her own cabin in the woods. Or beach house, just sayin’.
Foot massage on demand. Moms feet hurt most of the time. We spend most of the day on them, by the end of the day, our aching feet need some love. If the mom in your life is like me and has extremely ticklish feet and can’t handle someone else touching their feet, the Belmint Shiatsu Foot Massager will earn you some quick hero points. You can get them at Amazon or Target.
Gift of restful sleep. Mothers have many superhero powers, one of them is the ability to keep track of about a million things in the minds at one time. And sometimes all those things start bouncing around in our brains at bedtime. The Marpac Dohm Classic White Noise Sound Machine may not be the prettiest addition to the decor, but I promise she won’t care about looks after she wakes up refreshed from an amazing night of sleep. You can get yours from Amazon.
A day at the spa. Can’t go wrong with sending mommas of all ages for a day of pampering. If you know what spa is your mom’s favorite, then give her a gift card for there. For those of us who have no clue, you can get a Spafinder Gift Card or eGift Card, and she can choose the location.
Yoga or meditation studio gift certificate. Again, mom’s need their sleep! Did you know that regular yoga practice helps improve sleep as it quiets the mind and relaxes the body? Do some research and find a yoga studio near mom and get her a gift certificate. She will not only be more relaxed but stronger and more flexible too!
Don’t forget Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 13th!
