For the longest time I didn’t know what to get my mother on Mother’s Day. I mean what can you possibly give someone who birthed you into existence and has cared for you ever since?!
Over the years, in an attempt to show how much I care, I’d get her unique little knick knacks that she probably never really liked…but now that I’ve been a mother for 3 years, I think I know what she might want on this special day!
In fact, I think I know what a lot of mothers want/need….it’s pretty simple, really.
For most of us young mothers with young children, we really just want a few hours without an agenda. Think about it, we spend the majority of our time taking care of everyone else’s needs and often forget to take care of ourselves. Ladies, if you need a hot bubble bath, a good book, a massage, time to try a new fitness class you’ve been putting off, etc., Mother’s Day is the perfect opportunity for that. Ask your hubby or family member to watch the kiddos for just a few hours so that you can do all of the nothing you’ve been wanting to do!
Now, if you’re around my age (26) and your mother is soon becoming one of your best friends, all she wants is to feel needed again. She wants a little more time with you. So what’s my suggestion?
Ask her to do something that the two of you will enjoy. Get her a nail certificate for a mani/pedi date, make lunch reservations at her favorite spot, go bike riding, go shopping, or enjoy a movie. Whatever the two of you can do together will be the best present you can give her this year.
Mom, if you’re reading this post – now’s a great time to stop. 🙂 I love you. Turn off your computer or you will ruin your own Mother’s Day gift.

Okay y’all, I’m super excited because this year I’m gifting my mother tickets to the Dallas Summer Musical!!
We saw Wicked on broadway in NYC a few years ago and she always talks about going back to see another show. Although I can’t afford a trip for two to NYC – I can bring the theatre to her.
Wicked will be live April 20 – May 22 and this talented cast will not disappoint! But because my mother and I have already seen that particular show, I’m gifting her two tickets to Ragtime and I can’t wait for her to open them! She’s going to be really excited!
If you want to treat your mother to something a little different this year because let’s be honest – she deserves it – you can purchase tickets HERE! Wicked ranges from $40 – $179 and are on sale now and Ragtime costs anywhere between $17 – $90!
Would your mother enjoy this gift? If not, what are you getting her? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
