Mother’s Day gives you the opportunity to celebrate how thankful you are for your mom or the special woman in your life. It’s easy to leave planning what to do and purchasing a gift to the last minute. This year, let’s do everything in advance to avoid unnecessary stress and disappointment.
What I especially love about this holiday is that gifts can be so meaningful and heartfelt, but don’t necessarily have to be expensive. No matter how much you plan on spending, it’s all about putting effort and thinking about what will make your mom feel special. I know it may sound so cheesy, but we often get so caught up in our own lives that we forget just how much our mothers do for us on the daily.
I love Mother’s Day… It has always been a fun holiday for my family and me. My mom is usually over-ecstatic about anything I decide to gift her, so planning for this day is very enjoyable and stress-free. Personally, I have discovered that my mom especially appreciates receiving a box or basket full of different items she likes – it just brings so much variety to a very simple concept, and simultaneously demonstrates just how well I know her. Additionally, I try to give my mom one “pricey” gift, and the rest practical gifts because I know that’s what she likes.
About a month before Mother’s Day, I start to nonchalantly ask my mom about anything specific she might want or need, while also observing what my mom likes and dislikes at the moment.
