Mother’s Day is everyday, cliche but true. In the perfect world we would treat our mothers regularly with one or two of these gifts listed here but, we either lack the monetary access to afford them more frequently or we don’t make them a priority. If the latter one is the case, it’s a shame. Since I became a mother myself, I have understood the tremendous sacrifices mothers make for their children everyday. Many mothers give up their carriers to dedicate full time to their children, others go through emotionally and physically painful process to have a child. Suffice to say how special mothers are, therefore I came up with the most meaningful and thoughtful mother’s day gifts that are not necessarily cheap or free but, indeed caring and considerate.
Give her the gift of A massage experience
Take her to the Opera for a night.
If you live in New York City or its vicinity, take your mom to one of The Metropolitan Opera ABT (American Ballet Theater) 2017 Spring Season performances. Make sure to pre-order your drinks for intermission. For the first time The Met Opera is offering the ability to
pre-order your drinks for easy pick up at intermission. Pretty cool.
Organic meal delivery service
for them it is all about sentiments and they love gifts like this in particular. Etsy has a few artists that offer a personalized pop art-like portraits and cartoon like ones as well, take a look at here and Here .
A month worth of weekly housekeeping services
Nobody wants to talk about housekeeping since it’s not too glamorous, but boy are they helpful… and wouldn’t you feel good knowing that your mom won’t have to lift a finger for an entire month. I know I would. This is a gift that specially new moms would appreciate.
Take her to a Michelin-starred restaurant.
Glamsquad is an option. What about combining a delivery hair dresser, a Michelin
starred lunch and a night at the opera? I added the numbers for you Blowout $60 including tip, approximately $150 per person for lunch, ballet performance start in the $20’s. A very special day for your mom for under $200.
Donate to her favorite cause in her name
We all have a special cause that speaks to our heart. Either an illness that took a loved one
away or under privileged children. Make sure the charity you decide to donate sends
her a thank you note, so she knows that a good cause was done in her name.
A glamorous book
If your mom loves gardening and fashion and beautiful interiors, what’s better than a book about the late Oscar de la Renta “The Style, Inspiration and life of Oscar de la Renta”? The book highlights images of fashion editorials, pictures of his homes and garden and more.
A unique subscription
I’ve been meaning to do the ancestry test so I know that is a gift I would never forget. For the beauty conscious moms who love to take care of themselves and like to try new products, a subscription to a service like Birchbox is fun and and useful. For the Home Decor aficionada, a subscription to one of her favorite magazines would be fitting.
