mothers-dayMothers’ Day is fast approaching, and you’re running out of time to find the perfect gift to show your Mom how much you care. When you think about all that she’s done for you over the years, the constant love and support that she shows you, you start to realize that a bouquet of flowers just isn’t going to cut it. This year, try something new for Mothers’ Day and make a memory that lasts a lifetime. The best gifts, after all, aren’t things but experiences. 

Pamper Her

Any woman who has raised children has certainly experienced plenty of stress. Give your mother a spa gift card and let her put her feet up and relax (while getting a pedicure!) Take a day to enjoy pampered relaxation together, or just send Mom off for a  weekend of rest and rejuvenation. It’s the least she deserves for getting through your teen years!

Take a Trip

There’s nothing like a spontaneous getaway to bring people closer together. If you have time to take a long weekend, pack a weekender and head on a road trip with Mom. It’ll be a lot less hectic than your childhood family vacations, but the fun and the bonding will be just as valuable. Snag a gift card and let Mom pick the spot for a relaxing escape that will make this Mothers’ Day the best yet.

See a Show

Instead of wrapping Mothers’ Day up with a bow and have that be the end of it, take Mom out on the town for some bonding and see one of her favorite musicians or shows. Send a Tickets Now gift card to her, and let her choose a great event for the two of you to enjoy. Quality time with her will be a gift that both of you can appreciate, and a memory to cherish.

Create a Masterpiece

Another fun activity for you and Mom to experience together is the latest phenomenon, Painting with a Twist. Located all over the U.S., these establishments allow you to create your own artistic masterpiece with step by step instruction from a local artist. Just bring Mom and a bottle of wine, and you’ll have a blast painting gorgeous pictures together. Pair tickets to a Painting with a Twist event with a Blick’s Art Supplies gift card for a gift that keeps on giving.

Moms always love the gift of choice, so pairing a gift card with a thoughtful message and a one-of-a-kind bonding experience is a surefire way to express your love and appreciation for Mom. Whatever you decide to do for your mother this year, remember that Mothers’ Day is a day to cherish the most important woman in your life. Here’s wishing all of the mothers out there a wonderful Mothers’ Day, from our family to yours!
