Some of the best mothers day gifts you can get dear ol’ mom is the gift of laughter, relaxation, and peace.
You’re probably thinking, what does that even mean? Well, let Rakeman Plumbing tell you.
Let’s be honest. Your mom probably doesn’t need another nail kit, “mom” necklace, or kitchen supplies this year does she?
Why not think outside of the box this year. Do something that will not only put a smile on your momma’s face, but that will also shock her and maybe even make her slightly uncomfortable…
Here are a few Rakeman-approved, Best Mother’s Day gift ideas to consider for your mom this year.
Pamper Your Mom
Bare with us here. This one is quite obvious, but hey, why not throw it out there?
Mom has done quite a bit for the family wouldn’t you say? Whether that means working full time, several jobs, or caring for the house and home full time. Either way, your dear mom is most likely exhausted with work and with life and just needs a break.
Now, normally she does this by kicking her feet up, turning on her favorite show, and pouring a glass of wine. Or perhaps having lunch with the gals? Why not support these relaxing habits?
That’s right, “pampering” is exactly what it sounds like. We’re telling you to take your dear mom out to get a pedicure, a massage, or even a facial.
Everyone needs to pamper themselves every once in a while, and your mother certainly deserves it most. So force her out of her comfort zone, in case pedicures or massages aren’t normally her thing, but know that the whole time, she will love it…
Now in case your mom is a bit shy about these kinds of pamperings, you may need to think outside of the box to get her there for her suprise.
simply tell your mom you have a Mother’s Day surprise set up for her, but that you have to take her there, it’s not something you can physically give her. That’s right– take her hostage and head to the salon. She’ll have no other choice muahaha!
Do Something Unusual
Are you picking up what we’re putting down?
That’s right, another insanely relaxing gift activity you can give your mom this Mother’s Day, is something unusual.
Take her to a yoga class or Pilates! Maybe take a Zumba class or hire a private hiking guide? Even if it’s not her thing, it couldn’t hurt to try right?
There is nothing better than watching your mom indulge in hipster activities right?!
And yet, by the end of it, she can never say she regrets going. Hey, maybe she’ll even make it a habitual thing?
Give Her a Life Experience
Make your mother do something she’s never done before, or doesn’t really want to do.
The fact is, middle-aged people sometimes have regrets. Not necessarily regrets for things they had done or wish to take back, but more often than not, they are regrets for things they never did.
At this point in your mom’s life, she’s likely given up on trying new things. She’ll say she’s “too old for that crap” or “missed her chance”.
Don’t believe that for a second.
What is the one life experience that your mom has probably never had the opportunity to do? Maybe that’s skydiving, white-water rafting, rock climbing, scuba diving, swimming with sharks, riding in a helicopter, zip lining, going on a cruise, or even visiting a place she’s never been before.
Think outside of the box.
If you don’t know, ask your dad. If that doesn’t work, subtly trick her into telling you, get her to vocalize some ideas without her even knowing! Find that one thing your mom has never done, and get her butt out to do it!
Make sure you bring the video camera.
You won’t regret this, and trust us– neither will she.
Large spontaneous gestures like these are better than any material item or nail polish kit you could ever buy your dear ‘ol mom. Get your madre a life experience and forever memory this Mother’s Day.
