Gift Ideas for Mom, from a Mom
By: Jamee Villa
She folded your laundry (maybe she still does?), she washed the dishes and she will love you no matter what ridiculous decision you make in your life. Sigh, aren’t Moms the best?
We should be recognizing Moms everyday, but thankfully, Mother’s Day is an actual holiday all about her! This year, don’t screw it up with a last minute card and an “Oh, your gift is in the mail” routine.
My advice: Anything thoughtful and filled with love will mean the world to her.
Here are five great ideas:
Time. Seems silly, right? Taking the time to just hang out and talk is the perfect gift. Take her to The Crocker Art Museum, walk over to Old Sac for lunch and finish the day with a sweet treat from Rick’s Dessert Diner.
2. Put together a gift basket of all her favorite things!
Lotions, a good book, fun flip flops, chocolate and a bottle of champagne. Sounds like an amazing retreat…at home.
3. A massage and/or facial.
This is a staple for Moms. We love getting pampered. Not to mention, a quiet day away is something we only dream about. Shhh…Arden Hills Country Club offers specials on Tuesdays and Wednesdays!
4. Take a class together!
There are some wonderful local businesses that offer painting, cooking classes, golf lessons or intro to photography. Look online for some great discounts!
5. Order a personalized piece of jewelry from Etsy!
Etsy is a great site with a million different styles, price points and overall options. Every woman loves jewelry, especially one just for her.
Happy Mother’s Day!
