Creative Ways to Treat Your Mom on Mother’s Day

Jewelry, flowers, and chocolates are great, but here’s a list of what moms we polled really want for Mother’s Day. We’ve even included some extra-credit tips for overachievers. Or you could go with one mom’s response, which pretty much sums it up: “I want a Wonder Woman cape, preferably made out of diamonds, along with the statement: ‘You were right about everything, and we’d be lost without you.'”


Clean The House

Being a mom is stressful, and coming home to a clean house, even if it only lasts 10 minutes, is like a little slice of heaven for them. You don’t have to hire a professional to give mom the clean house she deserves. Instead, try buying cleaning supplies and tackle the mess around the house.


Let Her Sleep

When you’re a mom, getting a full night’s rest without waking up to an alarm clock or a hungry child in the morning is not only a dream come true, it’s unheard of. Try treating Mom to a full night’s rest on a new mattress. Lucid creates beds for the whole family, but when she wakes up feeling so refreshed she’s not going to want to share.

Extra credit: Pamper her on Mother’s Day by bringing her coffee and her favorite book along with breakfast in bed—you know she’s not going to want to leave the comfort of the covers anyway.


Give Her A Really Good Workout

Working out after baby can help boost confidence, fight postpartum depression, and act as a huge mood booster for any mama out there. But with a baby in tow it can be hard to find time to get in a good workout. Offer to take care of the kids once a week so she can go to Zumba class, or sign her up for an online program like Aaptiv where she can choose bodyweight training, yoga, and even meditation classes. Bonus, Aaptiv even has programs for expecting mothers and low-impact postpartum recovery to make sure she can fit a workout into her crazy schedule.


Offer A Spa Day

A massage, mani/pedi or facial are all wonderful gifts to show us how much we're appreciated. Older kids could get creative and set up a home spa with candles, homemade scrubs, etc.


Give Her A Day Free from the "Mom Routine"

We love being mamas; we really do. But we would also love a day free from the "mom routine." That means no dishes, laundry, chauffeur duty, dressing little ones, etc. Instead, show moms how much they’re appreciated with a beautiful Explosion Box. Pair this box with a break from all of the little things she does every day and you will win Mother’s Day.


Surprise Her With Subscription Box

Give the gift that keeps on giving with a subscription box. Help soothe her mind and body with a monthly gift to her. All five senses will be activated and on happiness overload. The smells, scents, and feelings you will get will last all month and have you ready for your next shipment of happiness.


Turn the Honey-Do into a Honey-Done List

Every time mom walks by that broken _______ (fill in the blank), it drives her crazy. If you complete the Honey-Do List of lingering household projects, you will be one happy man come Father's Day — trust us!


Cook For Dinner

Between meal planning, grocery shopping, and actually making dinner there’s a lot of time that goes into making sure your family is fed every night. Take that chore off her plate for a night (or a week) and allow mom to enjoy extra time with the kids.
