If you're trying to figure out what to do for the mothers in your life for Mother's Day I'm here to share some real world recommendations. You will not find flowers or Edible Arrangements in this list.

She wants to feel like she doesn't exist. 


What I mean is, she would like some time where everything around her functions the way she keeps it functioning, but without her having to do anything. Handle the kids, clean the house, do all the things she usually does at home. Bonus points if you can send her away from home while you do all this. If you can't send her somewhere allow her to have her own space and time away from the family on Mother's Day.

Self-care is great, but she'd love someone to care for her for a change. 


She'd like you to care for her like she'd care for herself. Anticipate her needs. Don’t do the things you know drive her crazy. Give her the care and attention that she gives her kids, just for one day. Cook her favorite meals. Clean the bathtub and draw her a bath. Bring her whatever she would like throughout the day.

She still wants gifts. 


Even if she says she doesn't want you to buy her anything, she'd love it if you did. She's not over gifts, she's just over un-thoughtful gifts. Here are some gift ideas that I'll admit come completely from my own desires.

Get her some underwear. No, not lingerie. Get her every day underwear sets that are more expensive than she'd allow herself to purchase. Pieces that she can wear regularly. These briefs are cute and comfortable. This bra offers support and style.

Get her a subscription box. She works hard all year round. Buy her a year subscription to a subscription box so she can receive a gift every month. There's something so awesome about receiving a surprise delivery. Here are some subscription boxes I recommend:

Get her jewelry that means something. Sparkly things are great, but they mean even more when they have a message behind them. I'm eyeing this necklace. Since she was born I've felt so connected to BabyCakes when I hold her little hands, so when I saw this necklace I thought it was perfect. Other good jewelry choices are items with her or your children's birthstones, or engraved items. Make her feels special with something custom. 


The most important part of selecting a gift for the moms in your life is to really think about them. Think about their true wants. Think about what they often talk about. Think about what they often wish for. 

Happy Mother's Day Gift Hunting!
