Mother’s Day is fast approaching, and you may be at a loss on what to get the maternal women in your life. Don’t fret! The options for gift-giving are endless and don’t have to break the bank. Whether you’re shopping for your mom, grandma, stepparent, or other maternal influence, there’s a gift that will touch their heart. Here are just a few great ideas to give your favorite women this Mother’s Day.
Give the Gift of God’s Word
For the devout Christian ladies in your life, giving Christ-centered gifts could be a heartfelt option. Christian bookstores are filled with journals, devotionals, and workbooks based on various stages in life. You can find devotionals written specifically for mothers; mothers with toddlers, teenagers, or special needs children at home. Does the mom in your life have a well-loved Bible? Give her the gift of a new Bible cover to keep it safe. Covers come in a variety of beautiful patterns, inscribed with Bible verses, and in a variety of materials.
Make it Shine
You can’t go wrong with the gift of beautiful jewelry and luxury watch like Tudor. Spoil the women you love with sparkling accessories they can enjoy for years to come. You can find lab created diamond rings that are man-made and replicate the process of natural diamonds. Not a hand-jewelry fan? These glimmering diamonds are available as pendants, bracelets, and earrings as well. At wholesale prices and environmentally-conscious processing, you can feel confident in your choice of jewelry. Your loved one will have a tough time distinguishing these beauties from the Earth-mined diamonds that can burn a hole in your wallet.
Self-Care Isn’t Selfish
Time spent pampering yourself has lasting effects on your physical, mental, and emotional health. The same concept applies to the maternal superheroes you love. Every mother or mother-like figure deserves to rest and rejuvenate for all they do for their families. Treat these heroines to a facial, massage, or meditation class this Mother’s Day. Remind them that all they pour out to others should be filled back up. Relaxation is a great way to reboot your system, repower your energy levels, and calm your mind and heart. You can even purchase a spa package for you, your mother, and your daughter to go together as a girl’s day. Sign up for mani-pedis, do a deep conditioning hair treatment, or soak in a hot tub for relaxation and a day of “girl talk”. After all, a happy mom tends to result in happier children.
Memories Last Forever
If you’re looking to take Mother’s Day one step further, wrap your gifts and plan some time spent together. Trade traditional quick visits for a day of memory-making. It can make a larger impact on the people you love to share moments than to simply unwrap tangible gifts and say goodbye. This is not to say that thoughtful gifts should be disregarded, but rather time together should be added to the gift-giving process. Plan time to go through old family movies, photos, or share stories. Have a picnic at a nearby park, take bodyboarding lessons at the local beach or grab dinner and a movie. In the years to come, the gift you gave will be associated with a full day of loving remembrance.
However you choose to pamper your maternal anchors this year, remember that the thought you put into it counts equally as much. Take the time to write a card that expresses your love and gratitude to accompany your gifts. Remind the strong women in your life how much you love and appreciate them. The role of a mother isn’t always easy and deserves to be celebrated.
