Gift Mom Some Self Care Time

Motherhood can be tough, and many Moms miss out on much-needed alone time. Most Moms want to spend as much time with their family as possible, and others have difficulty putting themselves first. But the truth is having alone time is perfectly okay! It helps with mental health and overall well-being. The simple fact is Moms need to take a break! Here are a few ideas to give Mom some “alone” time for Mother’s Day!

Give Mom a Shopping Spree

Surprise Mom with gift cards from her favorite store and let Mom go on a solo shopping spree! Some Moms find shopping alone relaxing and stress relieving. This alone time allows Moms to focus on the most important thing at that moment: themselves!  They get to spend as much time as they want to try on clothes, browsing isles of books, or testing out the newest gadgets on the shelves. No pressure, tons of fun!

Sign Mom Up for a New Class

Has your special Mom figure ever mentioned wanting to try something new? Gifting Mom a chance to get some alone time while trying a new skill or hobby is the perfect way to tell Mom how important she is to you! Check out this list of unique ideas for a new class:

  • Art or Pottery Class
  • Baking or Cooking Class
  • Photography Class
  • Dance or Martial Arts Class


Treat Mom to a Spa Day

Most Moms have busy schedules, but everyone deserves some time to relax and rest! A spa day can be a healthy mind and body experience. Treat Mom to a unique Mother’s Day gift of relaxation and pampering that she’ll appreciate. Mom will get to spend some quality time alone!

Take Mom on a Family Adventure

As great as gifts just for Mom are, nothing beats spending time together. Why not go the extra mile to make her day extra special by planning a family adventure together?

  • Pack a Picnic Lunch & Visit the Park: Prep and pack some of Mom’s favorite foods and snacks. Bring some fun outdoor games and head to the park for a picnic!

Offer Mom a Gift From the Heart

Maybe the Mom in your life loves traditional gifts. Mother’s Day is a time to shower Mom with affection or acts of service, to say “I love you,” and Mom is overjoyed to receive special handmade cards and thoughtful gifts. Consider these classic Mother’s Day ways to celebrate Mom.

  • Shower Mom with Flowers: Select Mom’s favorite flowers and place them all over the house. Or plant a Mother’s Day garden in her honor. Compile flower seeds and some gardening tools in a hanging “gift” basket so the family can plant flowers together!
  • Breakfast in Bed: How often has Mom been up early to make breakfast for the entire family? Why not return the favor? The family can work together and make a nice breakfast. She won’t have to make breakfast at this time; she can eat and relax in bed. Don’t forget to add a card to the breakfast tray to make this Mother’s Day even more special for her.
  • Whip Up a Cleaning Party! Let’s face it: no one enjoys cleaning. Particularly Moms, who seem to be so busy keeping the home clean on their own, all while working, raising kids, or running errands. A clean house is one of the best and most exciting gifts a Mom could receive! The family can host a “Clean the entire house” party. Be sure not to leave a party mess! This is a gift Mom won’t forget and will be wishing for every Mother’s Day to come!


Now you have a list of great gift ideas and unique ways to make this Mother’s Day extra special!  It’s important to show the Mom in your life how much you care, so memorably celebrate the occasion!
