Since 1914, American children have taken one special day out of the year to honor their mothers. This May 11th millions of flowers and cards will be delivered to over 85 million mothers in the U.S. Get a head start on mother’s day gifts this year with our mindful ideas for mother’s day.
If you’re thinking about going above and beyond a bouquet and greeting card this year, here are some mindful ideas for mother’s day
For the Eco-Conscious
If your mother is adamant about protecting the environment consider giving her an eco-conscious perfume. Pacifica has fragrances like French Lilac, Mediterranean Fig, and Island Vanilla. Also, consider sustainable jewelry like the earrings and bracelets offered from the Leakey Collection.
For the Green Thumbs
If your mom prefers spending her free time in the garden then consider giving her a unique wind chime. An exotic plant is also a great idea. ProFlowers can deliver different types of orchids, tropical bromeliads, and terrariums to your mom.
For Relaxation Enthusiasts
Some moms just need a little time to themselves. So for Mother’s Day consider buying a gift certificate to a local spa for a day of pampering. You can also buy a kit so that your mom can relax within her own home. EO and Bath and Body Works offer spa baskets and products.
For the Food Fans
If food is the way to your mom’s heart, try a unique treat. Buying an edible bouquet of fruit from Edible Arrangements or making your own cake pop arrangement would be a great surprise. If your mom prefers to be the one cooking, try a fun apron like this one, which functions as a cooking guide too.
For the Gizmo Mom
You can never go wrong with an awesome gadget for a gift. If your mother loves to read consider giving her a B&N Nook Color. If she loves capturing memories consider giving her a new camera.
For the Mother-to-be
Moms-to-be usually receive a lot of gifts for the baby, but what about them? If you have a pregnant friend, consider giving them a gift in honor of Mother’s Day. A humorous pregnancy journal, prenatal massage or a maternity photo shoot may be just the thing they need to brighten their day.
