Great gifts for moms
When it comes to buying gifts for moms, many are left shrugging their shoulders and scratching their heads. What does the woman, who gives so much and expects so little in return, REALLY want for that special occasion? There is only so much jewelry she can wear and only so many massaging showerheads one can use.
While gift cards to Macy’s, Barnes and Noble or other fine shopping establishments are always a great idea, most moms end up spending those gifts on other people, totally negating the original sentimental intention.
So what do moms REALLY want? What sort of gift will make that special occasion even more special?
Mom has a favorite hobby? A gift that represents that hobby is always nice. Is she into health and fitness? It’s always a pleasure to show up to an exercise class in new yoga pants and stylish work out top. She has always wanted to learn to draw? Check with your local Rec Center. Many offer drawing classes that are affordable and convenient. Cooking is her thing? Some new cooking utensils from Bed, Bath and Beyond, cook books or cooking classes at that new gourmet cooking school that opened in the strip mall down the street would be a great way to show your appreciation.
Mom is so busy taking care of everyone else, how about a day of pampering for her? There are many spas that offer “Day at the Spa” packages, check your local yellow pages for their locations. Manicure/pedicure gift cards are always a perfect little gift, too.
HANDMADE WITH LOVE
Sometimes, the best gifts aren’t store-bought. Make mom a coupon book filled with little things; good for one massage, an entire night off without any complaints, or whatever the mom in your life would love and appreciate. Take the kids’ school pictures or a favorite family photo and create a handmade frame to compliment it. There are so many gifts from the heart that cost nothing except love and a few creative moments. A great place to find supplies for your “made from the heart” gifts is Michaels.
A great gift for mom doesn’t have to cost a fortune for it to be appreciated.
