Mother’s Day is all about honoring the women who raised us. Whether she brought you into the world or came into your life when you needed her most, chances are she inspired you to become the stronger, kinder, smarter version of yourself that you are today.
Her selfless love and constant guidance should be celebrated so she knows how much she means to you.
So how do you show her your gratitude in a meaningful way? Simple! Let her know how much she has impacted your life by giving her a Mother’s Day experience she’ll treasure for years to come.
We put together some of our favorite experiential ideas for all the moms out there who deserve a special day dedicated entirely to their happiness.
Keep a good thing growing.
She loved you from the very first moment she saw you. Despite all the toddler tantrums, awkward middle school years, and those frightening high school hair styles, she stood by your side and taught you life’s most important lessons. All those seeds of kindness and strength that she planted in your heart and tended over the years have flourished!
Keep a good thing growing this Mother’s Day with an afternoon spent outdoors together.
There’s nothing like a little bit of fresh air and sunshine to warm the soul. If she has a green thumb, a handmade Olla Plant Feeder will keep her prized tomato plants thriving all summer, and the Panoramic Planters will ensure she always has fresh herbs on hand. Give her a soothing spot to enjoy the sunset with the Summer Day Hammock Chair and Botella Wind Chime. If she’s more of an indoor adventurer, bring the outdoors to her with the Sow Much Joy Vase.
Whether her love language is hugs and kind words, or pasta and baked goods, moms are often our most loyal comforters. This Mother’s Day, show her gratitude for all those kissed boo boos and dried tears by whipping her up a feast of her favorite comfort food. Bonus points if you clean up afterwards!
If she is something of a culinary artist herself, the Upcycled Sari Apron and Bouquet Tassel Napkin will keep her shirt clean and her tabletop looking sharp. Is she’s more of the ‘when in doubt, order out’ type, then the whimsical Bicycle Pizza Cutter and elegant Hand-Painted Sushi Set may be more her style.
Let’s face it. You’ve probably raised your mom’s heart rate to unhealthy levels once or twice over the years. Perhaps it was that time you built a bike jump in your driveway with your very limited engineering experience. Or maybe it was when you tried to sneak in after curfew. Did she teach you how to drive? Yup. She definitely deserves some special treatment for Mother’s Day.
The best way to show her that you care may be as simple as giving her the time and space to relax.
Breakfast in bed on the Floral Antiquity Tray or a hot cup of tea in the Snowy Dawn Mug is a great way to start the day. Make sure you’ve created an environment that promotes optimal coziness with a handmade block print robe and a salt crystal candleholder.
Mama in the making.
If she’s awaiting the arrival of her first little one, joining in her excitement while helping her feel more prepared is what her first Mother’s Day should be all about. The Harmony Bell Necklace, which soothes both mom and baby, is the perfect way to elevate her bump style while reducing any anxiety she may be feeling.
Spend the afternoon helping her outfit the nursery with the Woven Palm Leaf Moses Basket and the Upcycled Sari Baby Blanket. Not only will you have a chance to connect before the hustle bustle a new baby brings, but she’ll be able to connect with the mothers around the world who handmade your gifts.
Feeling present and focused can be challenging for most moms. When her days are packed full of the kids’ softball practice schedule, grocery shopping, homework help, and all those urgent work emails to think about, it’s no wonder moms these days feel overwhelmed.
Give her the opportunity to reclaim her focus for Mother’s Day this year.
Sign her up for a yoga class to learn some moves, and present her with the Mindful Yoga Pillow to practice them at home. Set up a peaceful space with a singing bowl, the Sharing Light Candleholder, and the This Moment Wall Hanging. Then complete the experience by helping her around the house, so she actually has time to use it.
