Mother's Day is that special time of year when we get to dote upon one of the most important women in our lives. The only problem? We know your Mom deserves the world, but extra planets are in short supply as far as gift-giving goes. Here are 5 timeless Mother's Day gifts that will make this years May a breeze.
Cliche? Perhaps, however, flowers or plants can range from Trader Joe's succulents to a local floral shop arrangement. No matter what your price range, making Mama smile doesn't have to be rocket science. Flowers are a simple, sunny reminder that your Mom is the best.
2. A Family Experience
The best gifts in life are often not things, but memories. Take Mom on a picnic with the family. Go to the park, beach, or lake. Do a painting with a twist class, or go to the movies. If you're feeling more adventurous, try trampoline parks, or an advanced fitness class. The sky is the limit, and I'm sure she'll love the quality time.
3. An Easy Night In
Board games are rising in popularity - with more vintage games being brought back everyday, and new games that take family game night to a whole new level - you can enjoy a raunchy, family friendly, or intense strategy game like never before. It's an easy way to have fun no matter the age of your other family members.
4. A Craft
Adult coloring books are all the rage right now. They are said to reduce stress, and improve focus. We think that Moms deserve to get crafty just because. Whether it's putting together a cute animal, or creating a craft-tastic paper bowl, she'll enjoy the tranquility that comes with creating something new.
5. Jewelry (with deeper meaning)
Jewelry is one of those Mother's Day gifts that falls nearer to the cliche end, but it doesn't have to. Anyone can go to a big name jewelry store and pick out a heart with 'Mom' etched into it. If you're going to go down the shiny path, why not gift her something that has a stronger meaning than just silver and gold. There are local artists in your area that are talented, and can personalize your gift. There are companies that donate part of their profits to a worthy cause. Do some research and get a gift that looks spectacular, but also means more.
