With Mother’s Day a week away, it has me daydreaming about all the fun things my family has in store for me.
This Mother’s Day will be a special one, as it will be my first Mother’s Day spent with my littlest man. However, it will be my 7th Mother’s Day to date.
It truly is crazy how quickly life passes you by once children enter the picture, so today I want to stop and reflect on some of my favourite Mother’s Day gifts that I have received over the years. Perhaps, if you are still on the search for Mother’s Day gift ideas, you will be able to seek out inspiration.
Book a Mommy & Me Photo Session. Mom’s aren’t in photos often enough. Quite often they will spend more time behind the camera capturing the photos than in front of it. Annually, I will usually participate in a Mommy & Me Photo Session with my kids. It is a great way to make memories and capture great photos with your littles that will last a lifetime.
Photo Gifts. Another gift I cherish is photo gifts. My favourite photo gifts are often purchased from Posterjack. I am a huge sucker for their Acrylic Blocks and Gallery Frames. Photo gifts are a great because it gives you that incentive to develop those memorable pictures you have captured over the years, rather than living them sitting tucked away on that USB key.
Spa Day. Mom’s often are craving some “me” time. Mother’s Day is a great time to book a massage, pedicure and/or manicure. Mom doesn’t necessarily need to check out all day on Mother’s Day, but a morning devoted quiet “me” time can be quite rejuvenating.
Breakfast in Bed. Breakfast is bed is a delicacy that Mom’s don’t get to enjoy often enough. Cook up breakfast with the kids allowing Mom to sleep in and surprise her with the goods in bed. You could even join her for the meal if you wanted! Alternatively, you could always head out for a family brunch.
Homemade Gifts. There is nothing better than homemade gifts. Quite often I find myself looking forward to the goodies that kids will make at school and bring home. Last year, my daughter decorated a mug and filled it with teas with the idea in mind that I could sip tea and unwind. The thought that goes into the homemade gifts always make them that much more special.
Whatever you do this Mother’s Day, I hope you are able to relax and enjoy being with your family because really it is that family time that is a gift enough!
