It’s just about that time of year again where we honor the ones who love us despite of fault, nurture us when we are in need, and brought us into this world! That’s right… Mother’s Day 2013!
Each year, I am caught off guard and struggle to find something that will be as special for her as she is to me! This year, I’m going to be prepared… and hopefully will help you prepare as well!
Here are some great Mother’s Day ideas for you to help make your Mom proud! (Some are generic for any location, and some are specifically for Bozeman.) Happy Mother’s Day!
Do you have a mother who loves to escape the world and take a bath? This little Bath Caddy is a super fun gift for Mother’s Day, and is relatively inexpensive! Order ahead of time for $49.95… click on the link above.
Buy her something that says something special. “If I didn’t have you as a Mom, I’d choose you as a friend.” Her heart will melt! See the sign above… here’s where you can find it for just $12.99: Mom2Friend Sign
Should I state the obvious? Women love bouquets!! And not just flowers… anything resembling a bouquet. Be creative and give her a bouquet of cake pops from Cupcake Mountain, cooking utensils, yummy suckers, or one of these great fruit bouquets from EdibleArrangements.com. Check out AvantFloral.com or Labellum Flowers for a unique & contemporary flower arrangement.
Buy her a night with you for cooking classes! GREAT cooking lessons are available at Olivelle– it’s inexpensive and fun to learn some new dishes that are healthy and tasty. Here’s a list of menu choices and times. Olivelle Cooking Classes
Mothers love to visually see that they have impacted your life. Make a personlized book for her of all the times you, your kids, or your family have shared together! And it’s EASY! You don’t even have to scrapbook– Just visit this website and order a book online. *Upload photos, add text, choose design, etc.*
Buy a notebook, and have your family, kids, or friends fill out a “Why We Love You” Book! They can put pictures in, write quotes, share memories, state small things they love about mom, and more.
Do you have children (specifically little girls) of your own? Nothing is more special to Grandma on Mother’s Day than sharing time with their legacy. Throw her a fancy tea party on Mother’s Day that you all can share! Get out your fancy china, buy a bouquet of flowers, a lace tablecloth, and enjoy a tea party with your Mom and your girls on Mother’s Day.
Who doesn’t love a spa day? Buy a $50.00- $100.00 gift certificate at a local spa, or a gift card for something specific if you know what she’ll love. Even better, buy two and go along for the ride! She’ll love the company. My favorites are “The Loft” in Downtown Bozeman, “Sage Spa”, “The Spa Ridge” and “Canyon River Spa.”
