Mother’s Day is coming! Don’t be stuck without a special treat for Mom, G-ma, your favorite aunt, or whoever it is that you would like to celebrate. Check out our ideas for some fun surprises for mom.
Essential Oil Diffuser
Mom will love a new diffuser that can make her home smell fresh and peaceful. There are a ton of different designs out there, so you can match her decor style. Go metallic, all white, or more wooden. Also, make sure to include some oils: Now brand Peaceful Sleep to relax or lemon to boost her energy.
This is a fun way to welcome summer with mom. Find a cool new beach or pool bag and stuff it with all the things! A new beach book (anything by Elin Hildebrand will do the trick), a new towel (Marshalls and TJMaxx have really cute Cynthia Rowley ones), a plastic catch all full of things you might need (sunscreen, hand-wipes, etc), A new floppy hat, and some flip flops (Old Navy is always reliable). Extra points for a road trip to the shore!
Y’all, momma needs a new pair of shoes! Treat her to some comfort with style by getting her a new pair of Birkenstocks Mayaris or, my favorite ballet flat, Tieks , in Mom’s favorite color. The Mayari sandal takes Birks from river shoes to shoes to take on a stroll around town. They come in regular neutrals, as well as metallics and brights. Tieks, the ballet flat that just won’t quit, offer style and comfort in tons of colors and prints that are sure to have mom saying “WOW”!
This beautiful piece of craftsmanship is a coffee-lovers dream. I am all about just a regular, cup of strong, black coffee, but when the opportunity arises to make it a little bit more special, why would we not? With the Keurig Cafe, you can turn regular cups off coffee in to Lattes, or Cappuccinos with the push of a button. As a coffee nerd myself, I have to say I am super excited about this. It’s a sleek looking machine, works fast, and is super easy to use. Don’t forget to include some K-Cups in a variety of flavors for mom to try or one flavor you know she will love.
Surprise Day of Fun
Brunch, shopping, pedicures, a massage? This day can look like whatever you want it to. Kidnap mom, don’t tell her where you are going, but make sure you have planned it out (and made reservations where necessary). Make a day of it, and make sure to take pictures to commemorate. If you really want to play it up, make her wear a crown or a sash that says “best mom ever”.
Have fun celebrating!
