Mother’s Day Is Coming Up–May 9th

It’s Mother’s Day on May 9th. Have you figured out what to buy for your mom/grandma/mother figure?

I did! (Doing my little happy dance around my desk)

And because my friend always hits me up for ideas I’m going to share some tried and true gift ideas:

  1. Afternoon Tea in the city at Lady Mendl’s, the St. Regis, or the Ritz
  2. Spa afternoon for mom
  3. Planning a weekend trip for her (with you if you get along, otherwise with dad or her bff)
  4. Digital camera as long as you are willing to provide a tutorial and tech support
  5. Picture collage of you together through the years
  6. Anything from Tiffany’s
  7. Her favorite music that she can’t find anywhere
  8. A card with a long note/letter about how much she matters to you

Best of luck!  What are your best and worst Mother’s Day gift ideas?

    Hi Kourtney,

    When I lived in the states, it was always a challenge to get a mother day card for my mum as the celebration is in March in UK. I wrote a little article about idea’s for mother’s day too – Ideas for Mother’s Day treats – Thoughtful musings from Tea with Mary Kate « Tea With Mary Kate – Inspiration for Tea and Living

    I loved your suggestions, especially the collage – I’m inspired to do that! Thanks

    • Oh that’s got to be rough! I really enjoyed your article–full of thoughtful gifts that really show how much your mom means to you!

      Glad my ideas helped. 🙂 Hope your mom likes the collage.

    Very nice suggestions! My husband promised to take me and our son to a nearby park, so the three of us could spend some quality time together. I’m really looking forward to it, frankly it’s not always about big or expensive gifts. The only thing that matters is that what you give is coming from your heart and showing that you put some thought into it.

    So to all you other mothers out there, Happy Mother’s Day!

    • Thanks! I tried to give a mix of time intensive and cash intensive depending on what people can splurge with. 🙂 A well thought out gift is always the best. My mom loves a handwritten letter as much as an expensive present with a big box and ribbon. It’s all about saying thanks for being a great mom. Sounds like a lovely plan for your Mother’s Day! Hope the weather is nice. 🙂
