Well with the responses that I got for the What NOT to get Mom for Mother’s day post and some responding (both e-mail and comments) that I took their ideas off the list and made them No Nos I thought I would help you out with some ideas on what TO get your Wife for Mother’s Day 🙂
Breakfast in bed- Have the kiddos (if they are old enough) help you make Mom breakfast and bring it to her while she is still in bed and have the kiddos eat breakfast with her.
Make her favorite dinner- Have the kids get involved and make Mom her favorite meal.
Hand made Cards- I personally love handmade cards from my little ones, especially when my husband took the time to help them make them. It is a great way to show mom that you care by making something personally for her.
Handprint pictures- Get a piece of paper and have your little ones put their hand prints all over it, write Happy Mother’s Day (of if they can write have them do it)and make sure to put the date and put it in a nice frame so Mom can hang it on the wall.
Take Mom out to her favorite restaurant-let her pick where she wants to go.
Spa Gift Card- Give her a day at the Spa to relax and pamper her self
Gift Card to her favorite store- Let her go on a shopping spree(does not have to be a crazy high amount) kid free so she can pick out a new outfit.
Photo Album- Make a photo album of fun times and great memories
Flowers- Flowers are a good idea, but make sure they are not ones that look like they have been sitting there for a few days.
Clean the house- (Yes I know this is not a fun task lol but I can guarantee that you will score big points with this one) But this would be a great gift to Mom. Do all the housework that mom would do for a day.
Clean the Carpets- this one is a branch off of the cleaning house, but at the same time if Mom has been asking for a carpet cleaner because she wants one, get it if you find a deal on it BUT make sure you clean the carpets for her and even add a little note that says you will clean them for X amount of times 🙂
Plan a family picnic and family fun day- The love for our children is what makes Mother’s Day for us moms, having a day where we can relax and enjoy our family and our kids with out the other stress in life is the perfect gift for moms.
Jewelry- Make sure that it has a meaning, be it the birthstones of the kids, or one of those necklaces that have symbols to symbolize the kids, make sure it has some meaning and that it is a reminder of the kids.
Most off Mother’s Day is a time for Mom to feel special. Do something for her that will make her feel special. Make it a day where you and the kids can show her just how much you appreciate all that she does and how much she means to you.
What are some of your suggestions on how to make Mother’s Day special?
