Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and we’re excited to celebrate all the loving, enduring, hard-working mamas we know. Motherhood is a full-time job, and if there’s one day a year when moms should be totally off-duty, it’s Mother’s Day. Below are 10 ideas to pamper the mamas in your life – or a simple wish list to forward along to your husband and kids!
No matter who or how you’re celebrating, we’ve agreed that all mothers deserve…
1. TO FEEL COMFORTABLE + STYLISH
New in the shop, our French-inspired Maman Tank is the comfiest way to make a sweet statement, and the slouchy gray racerback design goes with everything and can be effortlessly layered with your coziest cardigan. If matching is your thing, our Bébé onesie and Papa tees make it a complete set.
2. TO FEEL BEAUTIFUL, NATURALLY
Mamas shouldn’t have to worry about what they’re putting on their skin; this charcoal-based detox face mask is a lovely all-natural option. We’re big fans of Urban Oreganics, a Portland-based botanical apothecary with a great beauty and skincare line.
3. TO HAVE THEIR HOME BRIGHTENED WITH NEW LIFE
Bring the outdoors in with fresh blooms and make her smile with a hand-crafted bouquet. Farmgirl Flowers partners with American farmers to create a completely unique and sustainable flower delivery option, sent straight to her door.
4. TO INDULGE
Craft a pitcher of cocktails, pop a bottle of rosé, or unwrap a new bar of dark chocolate – whatever her favorite treat is, put the kids to bed and let her indulge a little!
5. TO CARRY HER LOVED ONES NEAR HER HEART
A mother’s greatest pride and joy are her kids, and what sweeter way to show them off than with a customized necklace? This rose gold hand-stamped bar necklace from The Silver Wren would be so pretty worn alone or layered with other necklaces from their shop.
6. TO MAKE NEW MEMORIES WITH HER FAMILY
Plan a weekend getaway, or even an overnight – changing up the pace and escaping from routine would be such a welcome adventure for a mama! Some of my absolute favorite memories of my husband and son have been when we were traveling and exploring new places together. Airbnb makes it easy to find unique lodging in a brand new town.
7. TO RECHARGE IN HER OWN WAY
Surprise her with a calligraphy kit if she’s always had a hankering for hand-lettering. Or gift her a yoga class, or a new pair of running shoes – anything that helps her engage in her favorite hobbies, kid-free. And then give her the time away to indulge her interests and recharge, alone. Once you have kids, alone time is a precious commodity and should be regarded as a thoughtful gift for the introverted or overworked mama.
8. TO GET SWEPT UP IN A GOOD STORY
If you can’t swing a physical getaway, a good book can be just as fun of an escape from daily life. Snag a few bestsellers or a stack of magazines and give her the time and space to lose track of time reading – preferably in bed, with cup of tea or coffee nearby.
9. TO NOT HAVE TO COOK
Whether you whip up breakfast in bed from scratch, take her out to her favorite restaurant, or get her a meal delivery subscription – give that lady a break in the kitchen! Food prep is such a sweet and simple way to serve the people in your life, particularly if it’s something special on Mother’s Day.
10. TO HOLD LOVED ONES CLOSE FOR A DAY
The pressure is off – all she really wants is an uncomplicated, affectionate, loving day with her favorite people. Be sure to speak words of thankfulness and affirmation, and let her know how truly cherished she is – for who she is and all she does to love her family.
