Mother’s Day is day to honor the women in our life. When selecting the perfect Mother’s Day gift, bigger isn’t always better.Thoughtfulness can go a long way, and we are sharing some of our favorite gift ideas. If you are buying for a busy mom who could use a break, there are some great meal delivery services available. Hello Fresh, Blue Apron, and Sun Basket are among some options, but there are many to choose from. Don’t forget to check Groupon for a good deal on these. For the woman who needs to take a break, an experience-based gift could be a great choice. A day at the spa, a stay at a local bed and breakfast or tickets to an upcoming event are good options, too. Homemade gifts are always special and really show that extra thought was put into the gift. Try making a miniature herb garden and personalize the container with paint or labels. Many area craft stores have labels and accents to include that look great and are easy to add to any planter. When in doubt, getting the mom in your life a nice accessory is always a win. Often times moms don’t splurge on the extras for themselves, so a fun purse, summer tote or piece of jewelry is an easy choice.

The presentation can be just as special as the gift itself. Try wrapping the gift in plain butcher paper and use simple twine or a fun ribbon to dress it up. Print copies of a few old, meaningful photos and attach to the top of the package. This gives a very personal look that shows you went the extra mile. Don’t forget the card! Mother’s work so tirelessly for their families, and they want to hear what you love about them.
