Being a mom is one of the hardest roles a woman can fulfill. She is in charge of running the household and raising the kids. When special occasions come around, moms certainly deserve a thoughtful gift to show how much she is appreciated. If you want your mom to feel special, browse through the following gift suggestions.
- A relaxing day at the spa would do wonders towards rejuvenating her. Schedule a massage, and a facial to give her spirits a much-needed lift. Of course, she won’t be able to relax unless everything is all taken care of, so be sure to cover everything such as the kids and the chores for the day. Field all calls and demands, so that nothing else will be on the agenda except her.
- Take her to that museum she had always been dying to visit, or to the theatre. When mothers have children, it is all too easily to set aside one’s personal interests. Let her get reacquainted with all the things she used to love before motherhood took over.
- Arrange a total makeover. Help mom rediscover the glamorous self she most probably buried in track suits and jeans. There used to be a time when mom could devote all the time towards keeping herself beautiful. Make her feel pretty by arranging a date at her favourite salon and have an accomplice pick out an outfit that would be flattering and chic enough for a dinner at a classy restaurant for later, so she can take her new look out on town.
- Make her feel like a queen with a luxurious sleeping kit. Pick out a silk nightgown with matching robe, some fuzzy bedroom slippers, and a bedazzled sleeping mask. Throw in some satin pillowcases and you are all set.
- Indulge her with the expensive item she has always coveted but would never buy for herself. It could be that designer makeup kit, or that expensive purse; moms are notorious for putting the needs of other family members ahead of her own especially when it comes to frills that she thinks are non-essential. This gift suggestion will need some spying and sensitivity, so start scouting a few months ahead to get the perfect gift idea.
- Get her a gift that will keep on giving. If you can afford it, get a maid that can come in at least once a week to give her some breathing room. Or at the very least, take over household responsibilities yourself so that she can have time to unwind or decompress. Set aside one night a week where you and other family members become responsible for shopping and preparing for dinner while mom snuggles with a new book or soaks in a warm bath. Don’t forget to handle the cleaning up afterwards as well.
