Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and while I love a holiday that’s devoted to mother’s everywhere, I think sometimes we forget what really matters. My wish for Mother’s Day? To sit back, relax, and enjoy my family. How often can we truly say we relish in the time we spend with our family? I just want to put all the worries and thoughts and to-do lists away and just have fun with my favourite people in the world!
I also love flowers – white peonies and lavender, in particular – a good cup of tea, and a delicious meal. I also wouldn’t turn down some pampering at the spa (hint, hint!). Here are some ideas of what to do for you Mama to have her feeling incredible:
1. Time Spent With The Family
We know that above all, the one thing that mom values most is time spent with the whole family. A surprise breakfast at a new restaurant, an invitation for an afternoon walk or impromptu outing to her favourite gallery or museum is fun for the whole gang.
2. Tea Time
Take time out with mom to enjoy crustless mini sandwiches, decadent cakes and bottomless pots of tea. This is also a good excuse to have your own fancy dress party complete with an over-the-top hat.
Nothing says I love and appreciate you like a spa day. Book mom in for a relaxing treatment she is sure to enjoy. To help her keep feeling spa fresh, gift her a bottle of Batiste™ Dry Shampoo Blush™ (my secret weapon for most mornings!). The delicate floral scent will transport her back to the serenity of the spa while instantly revitalize her hair and leaving her ready to go.
It’s hard to take two steps these days without sending a perfectly filtered pic into the social media universe. Mom likely has a few pics she treasures most, and there is no shortage of items that these artsy images can’t be printed on. From mugs, to notebooks, to the perfect collage, the options are endless. Add a personalized note to remind mom just now special she is.
Are you a mom? What do you want for mother’s day?
