As things prolong with 2020’s pandemic, it’s likely that Mother’s Day will not be celebrated in-person this year. Although your mom would love to spend time with you for the holiday, there are many things you can do from miles away to make your mom feel special on her special day.
The most popular Mother’s Day gift is a fresh flower bouquet. Don’t just stop there! Your mom has done an impeccable job to get you to where you are in life today, so why not go the extra mile to make her feel appreciated and recognized in her role as your mother.
To find the perfect Mother’s Day gift, ask yourself, “what does mom like to do?” The following categories can help you pinpoint the perfect arrangement and unique gifts for your mother this holiday.
Moms who love nature
Whether your mom is into hiking, biking, running, rock climbing, camping, or any other adventurous outdoor activity, gift ideas are abundant for your mother.
For the nature enthusiast, you can’t go wrong with a beautiful bouquet of wildflowers. Ask your local florist what they have in stock and include your mother’s favorite colors, scents, and flowers if you know them. Your local florist, Santa Clara Woodward's Flowers has beautiful flower arrangements and designs to choose from. Have your flowers delivered straight to your front door with our flower delivery options in Milpitas, CA. By the way, it never hurts to ask her! There’s no better excuse to get to know your mom on a deeper level than with a holiday.
You might even ask your mom if there is something she has never tried but always wanted to. Maybe it’s kickboxing, backpacking, or tennis! These kinds of questions will lead you to gifts that make your mom feel heard and considered.
In addition to a bouquet, you can give her lessons for her new hobby, a sporty outfit that makes her radiate even more than she already does, gear to make her dreams come true in any sport or outdoor bucket list, or a trip-of-a-lifetime in a beautiful park or the middle of the wilderness.
For the moms who give more than they receive
If your mom is the type of woman who is always giving and putting others before herself, then it’s time to acknowledge her for that by returning the favor. Often, we treat others the way we want to be treated.
These powerful women need to be celebrated! A stunning flower arrangement, along with a self-care-day package is all she needs. Mud masks, scented candles, bubble bath, and lotion are a wonderful treat for an at-home day spa.
Not all moms have access to a bathtub or a relaxing, quiet space. If that’s your mom, you can always give her a day at the spa! Saunas, massage, reiki, acupuncture, salt caves, and sensory deprivation are all great ways to treat your selfless mom, who would likely never buy these things for herself! Some spas even offer sound healing, yoga, and other events, so check your mom’s local spa options to deliver her the perfect package.
For the mom who hosts
Is your mom upset about the quarantined holidays because she loves to be a hostess? Calm her sorrows by gifting her the perfect arrangement for now and a unique gift for a future event she can host for friends and family.
Hosts love to stand out at events, so gifting her the perfect cocktail dress or statement jewelry piece is going to help her shine brighter than ever the next time she gathers everyone. If your mom is not the type to draw attention to herself, just the special occasion, you might focus more on serving dishes, a cookbook, delectable chocolates, or cute party favors.
For mothers who prefer cooking instead of catering for their guests, cooking utensils and worldly spices will encourage her to make something she has likely never made before or wants to master.
Your mom is going to be telling everyone at the gathering how you contributed to the evening on this special day, so make sure you give her something you are proud of!
A bouquet is great for telling your mom you are thinking about her and love her dearly, and they make a complete gift when paired with something more unique to your mother’s lifestyle, interests, and hobbies. Let her know just how much you were thinking about her with these gift ideas!
