Mother’s Day is so soon and if we’re being honest, you probably haven’t gotten anything for your mom yet. It’s alright, no one is judging you – except for your momma. I don’t know about you, but I think my mom is just the most wonderful person in the world and I love to spoil her when I can. Here are a few ideas to help you get the ball rolling from now until this Sunday – may the odds be ever in your favor!
I love this company and the products that come in the boxes each month. Friends of my mom got her a subscription for a year and she loved it (I even reaped the benefits, so you might too). It’s a fun way to try new products and you’re likely to find your new go-to beauty item!
– What I Love About Mom Book
My sister actually did this for my mom last year and it was adorable. It’s a cute and fun way to show your mom how much you appreciate her.
– Simply Aly

This is a given – but who doesn’t love flowers? Pro tip: ask your mom months ahead of time what her favorite flowers are so that you can totally nail it on Mother’s Day – she’ll forget you asked and think you’re just the best child ever.
– DIY project
I know I love being crafty, and thanks to Pinterest, anything is possible. One year I made my mom a shadow box using Scrabble letters to spell out the names of the kids – I was inspired by this pin on Pinterest. My mom loves Scrabble, so I knew this would be the perfect gift for her. Just remember,even if whatever you make turns out awful, it’s alright because you tried. It’s the thought that counts right?
– Getting her something she won’t spend her own money on
I think this one is important. If your mom is anything like my mom, she probably doesn’t splurge on things for herself too often. Has she been eyeing a jacket all season? Running low on her favorite but expensive makeup product? In desperate need of a spa day? You’ll make her day all while knowing you got her something she truly wanted.
– Doing things she loves
Some moms just aren’t into getting gifts, but would rather do something they enjoy with their children. If she’s been wanting to see a play, a movie, check out some new shops downtown, go on a hike, try a spin class, or anything else; remember that the day is all about her!
What are you getting your mom this Mother’s Day? (Sorry mom, no spoilers here!) Make sure to check back on the blog later this week – I’ll be posting the article that inspired me to start this blog in the first place. It’s a post about grief and what I wish people knew about the process – I’m hoping it will help people who haven’t gone through it have a better understanding what it’s like.
