Mother’s Day means a lot to many women and if your wife is one of those, you should know how important it is to get her a well-chosen gift. Let’s face it, you’d earn brownie points just for remembering to get her a card and present in the first place. However, if you’re not sure what you should get her, or feel your gift ideas need a little rejuvenation, we’re here to help.
In the following post you will find several great suggestions that are bound to put a smile on your best half’s face and avoid you being in the doghouse.
Breakfast in Bed
This is probably the most obvious one on the list, but the reason it always gets suggested is because it is a winner. Women love to feel pampered and what better day to pamper that special woman in your life, the mother of your children, than ensuring that they get to have that lie-in they’ve always dreamed about (and often complained about not getting) in the past. Even if it’s just a simple jam on toast-style affair with their favourite bread and conserve/jam/chocolate spread or even lemon curd – it is sure to go down a treat.
This works even better if you can get the kids involved. Perhaps you dads out there can handle the coffee, while the kids tackle the toast.
Speaking of pampering, why not push the boat out a little and order something that is just for her? Gourmet baskets are a great way to show you appreciate the hard work your wife does in her multi-faceted role as mother, wife and superhero. You can often finetune these to fit her specificpreferences and taste. Give her taste buds an adventure, highlighting the exotic and interesting adventure she has taken you and your kids on since you’ve known her.
There are certain things that are fail safes and while we’d never suggest these should be the sole gift, they are great to have in the mix. Flowers, along with the trifecta that also comprises of chocolates and wine, are a must. To really hit her deep, choose her favourite flowers, in her favourite colour and make sure the bouquet is a big one. Go big, or don’t go…
Day of Pampering at the Local Spa
If the pampering idea is what you think will appeal to your wife the most, why not go the whole hog and arrange for her to have a special day out at the local spa. Book her up for a full programme of treatments, where all she must do is relax and enjoy all that attention. Round her special day off with a trip to her favourite restaurant, where she has full pick of the menu and is even allowed to buy some champagne.
The fact that you’re fretting over choosing a good enough gift to show how much you care about your wife on Mother’s Day in turn shows how much you care. Hopefully, some of the great tips above help you find the ideal gift or combination of gifts that will remind her that she’s a special mother.
