Mom has always been there for you, and while you may not have appreciated her attention when she loudly cheered from the sidelines of your game—foghorn included—or took hundreds of pictures before prom, you don’t know what you’d do without her.
Show her some love this year with help from these Mother’s Day gift ideas. Whether you share breakfast in bed, a DIY spa kit, or a few essential oil blends, Mom is sure to feel cared for—the perfect gift for the years of care she’s given!
Breakfast in Bed
Remember all the times Mom prepped breakfast before your early-morning game or whipped up a brunch buffet for your birthday sleepover? There’s no way to repay her for years of tasty meals made with love, but a surprise breakfast in bed won’t hurt.
Plan a meal that includes what Mom would want on her special day, whether it’s light and healthy or rich and indulgent. Try not to burn anything—though you know she’ll forgive you if you do—and don’t forget a few fresh flowers on the tray!
DIY Spa Kit
Have a mom who rarely breaks away for some much-needed time to herself? Bring the self-care night to her! A DIY spa kit is a creative and custom way to treat Mom to the pampering she deserves. And while avocado masks and cucumber slices were fun when you were 14, it might be time for some extra-special spa services.
Fill a basket, big or small, with the goodies you know your mom would love. Our DIY body butter and DIY lavender-oatmeal bath soak both make great additions to a beauty basket. Or check out our self-care posts, like 3 Steps to Fab Feet and 3 Steps to Make Time-for-Me Time, for more ideas! Don’t forget to personalize your kit with a favorite treat, magazine, or beauty tool to make it the perfect gift for Mom.
Essential Oils (Obviously!)
Just like there’s no way Mom’s going to let you skip your veggies at dinner, there’s no way we won’t recommend a few essential oil blends! We’re even ready to help you get your oils gift-ready with our free Gift Tags That Show You Care, specially created for our most popular oils.
