Check your calendars everyone, THIS Sunday May 12th is Mother’s Day. Whether you have been planning something or not, MiNeeds is here to help you put together the finishing touches. Rather, if you are in the 18% of Americans who say they wait until the last minute, we’re here to help you start planning.
Check out the different gift ideas we compiled. Don’t be afraid to mix and match because we know there’s no one quite like the mom in your life.
Every moment’s a Kodak-moment Mom
Is your mom constantly snapping pictures? Begging for you to pose one last time? “No turn this way… yes, right there” We’ve all been there. For the mom who can never have enough pictures, satisfy her urge for a picture “suitable for framing” by planning a photo session with all the loves in your life. Simply post your photography need and a local photographer will contact you shortly!
Bonus: If your mom is an animal lover surprise her by including the family pet. If your beautiful face doesn’t make her tear up, including the beloved family pet will guarantee a center spot on the mantel.
The Working Wonder Mom
Got a busy mom who manages to juggle every aspect of HER life and YOURS? Sounds like it’s time to treat mom to a little pampering of her own. The best way to do so? Obviously start off with breakfast in bed, and then as every girl knows, the best way to be pampered is with a spa day. Schedule a massage or mani pedi (that’s a manicure & pedicure gentlemen). If you’re really feeling generous, surprise her with a clean house when she gets home—you can either do this yourself, or join her at the spa and book a local cleaning service today! Show your mom how much you appreciate all her hard work by giving her a day off.
Fit and Fab Mom
Many moms love mixing up their routines with fun fitness classes. Give your mom the gift of a personal trainer here or a pass to that hip new yoga studio down the street (she doesn’t mention it every time you pass by for nothing!) I always like to tie in a little something to go along with gift certificates or vouchers. In this case I would recommend a cool new water bottle, a workout top, or even some sporty headbands to go along with her new gift.
Tip! If you’re going to give a gift for your Fit and Fab Mom make sure she knows it’s because you know she looks good as is
Does your mom claim to want nothing at all? Nearly 36% of mother’s ask for something handmade on Mother’s day. If you’re like me your mom has NO idea what she is in for by asking for a handmade gift. Really, no idea. While you slave away trying to make a piece of construction paper and nearly dried up washable markers from the 4th grade into a handcrafted masterpiece why don’t you order a surprise delivery of flowers to match the ones you “drew”? No woman denies flowers. Ever.
Your mom will love the extra consideration and the flowers will surely brighten her day!
