With Mother’s Day right around the corner, children and spouses have begun frantically searching for the perfect gift across every corner of the internet.
A new vacuum or a shiny new toaster can offer the impression that a mom’s worth lies in what she does for her family. Flowers can seem so traditional and oftentimes can be perceived as the “easy way out.”The decisions can be overwhelming. Consider something unique for mom this Mother’s Day! Here are some ideas to get you started.
The Gift of Time
Whether mom enjoys bowling, museums, dancing, or just a good old-fashioned Rom-Com, most moms just want to spend time with the ones they love. Consider the non-traditional gift of time! One that begins with a meal at her favorite restaurant followed by a memory-making activity.
When moms age, their priorities may shift and they value that time that, when their grown children leave the nest, they no longer get enough of. “Experiences over Things!”
Give mom the feel of absolute relaxation and luxury with spa products and accent pieces, a pampering day at the salon, or a shopping spree for something to make her feel like a million bucks!
A gift certificate for a massage or facial at your local spa facility OR for her favorite store so she can grab something to lift her spirit.
Bring that spa-like feel home to mom so she can enjoy it for years to come with luxury (and environmentally-friendly) soap trays or trivets! Every time she washes her hands or sets down her hot tea kettle, she’ll remember her unique Mother’s Day. Northworx offers Canadian-crafted products made from renewable materials to bring nature indoors and offer that luxurious feel.
There’s something special about a handmade gift but if the gift-giver is not crafty, it poses a bit of a conundrum. Think about things that mom really loves, any crafts she may like doing herself, or things she uses often as a starting point for the gift search.
