It happens to the best of us. We start working on many different things, not realizing the dates on the calendar. Then, it hits you. It could either be in the dead of night, dripping from a cold sweat or throwing a side-eye to all the extra families at brunch on Sunday. You forgot it’s Mother’s Day, and even worse – you don’t have a gift to show for it. Yeah, you could give her a call but you still want to get her something. Here are some quick (and not-so-quick) Mother’s Day gift ideas.
How can Mom’s house be so cold all the time? It’s defying the laws of nature to have the air conditioning on in the middle of winter. A sweet cardigan or sweatshirt is always a nice idea. She can toss it on while she’s taking a walk outside, or she might just keep it handy for you when you stop by. In any case, it’s a win-win.
Doesn’t it seem like every mom LOVES to cook but seems to keep the same ratty cookware for years past its “use by” date? Buy a simple yet indispensable piece of cookware to ensure she’ll use it for years to come. Or if she doesn’t really know how to cook, maybe it’s time to get her started so she can serve an amazing side dish for Thanksgiving.
Buying home items are always a tough sell. You know Mom’s style but it could be hard trying to break her out of her shell and try something new. In this case, you can give her something that won’t break the bank or be too much of a burden for her to decide, where it goes. A small pendant light or chandelier is the perfect addition for any room without being overbearing.
And what every mom really wants for Mother’s Day? Just to be left alone. She might not have minded too much that Mother’s Day was particularly quiet for her (see: madhouse during brunch), so she won’t mind if you give her a little trip to the spa. No one can turn down fluffy robes, free mimosas and the mani/pedi combo she’s been trying to get for the last… 30 years. Yes, you can make your own spa package but we’re adults now. Just send her somewhere nice and she’ll definitely thank you for it.
Though you may be a few days late, Mom never minds getting a sweet gift from her child. Even just the thought melts her heart half the time. And there’s a bonus. With gifts like these that look more expensive she can chastise you endlessly for having spent too much while secretly smiling at her new gift.
