In case you didn’t get the memo, Mother’s Day is THIS Sunday! And it’s another year where typical Mother’s Day outings may not be possible. But don’t fret. If you’re still looking for a Mother’s Day Gift for the mom in your life we’ve got you covered! Here are 8 last minute gifts for Mother’s Day- ideas from local moms that you can make happen before Sunday, all of which are pandemic friendly.
A Day Off
An ACTUAL day off, where everything that needs to get done actually gets done, but not by us. A day off where Mom does nothing on Sunday, but then has to play catch up on Monday is not actually a day off.
We want the house to ourselves. Take the kids, take the pets, leave us the remote. If the door is locked when you get back, we’re not done being alone. Come back later.
A Hotel Stay
It doesn’t have to be long. It doesn’t even have to be very fancy. We just want a night in a bed with no other bodies, no chance of being woken up. We are mothered out.
Yes, we seem super touched out lately, but if we have to be touched, we want it to be relaxing and stress-relieving. Bonus points if you figure out the child care too.
Simple but good quality jewelry. Nothing super expensive or flashy, but classic pieces. we dream of passing down our jewels to our children and their future spouses. Simple quality pieces are perfect.
A Girl’s Outing
A day with girlfriends to a vineyard. Massage. Brunch at a local spot in town. A day to reconnect with our people.
Detail the vehicles. Gift cards are fine, but if you take it for us, we’re even more grateful. Cars are catch-all’s, and as things get a little more normal, and the kids are doing more things out of the house, it’s only going to get worse. A fresh clean car is calming and makes all the taxi driving a bit more do-able.
For the Gardener
Mom loves a veggie garden? Grab that new planter she’s been eying on Amazon. Gift cards to local greenhouses. An actual plant in a pretty planter (bonus if you check the house and pick something new!).
