Give Mom What She Really Wants for Mother's Day -- You! May 05 2015, 0 Comments

Mother’s Day is fast approaching, and none of us should forget our mothers this year, or those who are like a mother to you! Between the jewelry commercials, the ads for dresses, shoes and pocketbooks that mom might want, and the special brunch menus at all of your favorite restaurants, Mother’s Day can be stressful worrying about what to get your mother, the woman who really doesn’t need a single thing. Luckily for us all this year, Ebates.com has made Mother’s Day gift-giving easier. They did a poll to find out what mothers really want, and the top answer was pretty simple -- time! Yes, 60% of the women polled said time with their family was what they really wanted. So I’ve come up with some fun ways to spend a little time with your mother this Sunday. It’s a gift you’ll both enjoy!

  • Get manicures and pedicures together. Sure, paying for her mani/pedi is much like giving her a gift (especially if you were going to give her a gift certificate for a mani/pedi anyway). But this way you get to enjoy the experience together and have a little uninterrupted time to talk. And you both walk away with great looking nails!
  • Take her shopping. When was the last time you and your mom spent a day at the mall together? Pay her back for all those times she took you to the mall when you were a teenager, only this time you’ll actually enjoy the shopping experience together, even if you don’t buy a single thing.
  • Take a class together. There are so many fun wine and art classes or cooking classes to take advantage of these days, why not do one with your mom? Of course, it might not be happening on Mother’s Day, but the promise of time together is pretty special, and gives you both something to look forward to.
  • Facetime. If you don’t live near your mother to do an activity together on Mother’s Day, do something a little more than the traditional phone call. Talking face to face, whether with Facetime or Skype, can be almost as good as being there. If your mom has never done it before, she will surely want to do it again after she experiences it the first time!

No matter what you do for Mother’s Day, the important thing is to let your mom know how much you love her. None of us would be where we are today without our mothers, or the women in our lives who are like a mother by the way they love and support us.

And if you feel the undeniable need to buy her a present, our light and breezy Go Free Melanie Black Capri will have her feeling like a Sexy Mama all summer long!
