This week, we’re dedicating our blog to one of the most important people of our lives, our moms! Mother’s Day is on May 12th this year (see our countdown widget on the right), and that’s only 6 days away! This week will fly by in a whirlwind while we prepare to celebrate with our moms this Sunday.
One thing a lot of us have trouble finding is the perfect Mother’s Day present. What do we gift to this special lady, who keeps insisting they don’t need anything? In today’s post, we’re going to share with you a thoughtful gift guide for Mother’s Day, sure to make them feel appreciated.

Spa Day – Mom’s are always too busy to pamper themselves. Why not have a fun mother/daughter spa day together by taking her out to your city’s favorite spa for some much needed R&R.
Frame a Favorite Picture – Here in the digital age, the art of print photography is lost. Find a favorite picture of your family and get it printed at your local drugstore. Put it in a nice frame for a priceless gift.

Homemade Baked Goods – Our moms have had their share of baking during our childhood. It’s time for them to enjoy some delicious yummy baked goods, as well! Fill a basket full of fresh baked goodies (baked by you!), and they will definitely feel the love.
Treat Her to a Dinner Out – Another thing moms are often too busy to do: take off their apron for a night to have a nice dinner out! Treat her (and your dad too! :)) to a nice dinner out, on you! Book them a table at your favorite restaurant for them to try something new.
Handmade Cards – As we get older, it gets more convenient to pop into the drugstore to pick up a Mother’s Day card. If you’re crafty (we’re sure you are craftier than you think!), hand-make a card for your mom this year to bring back the days from your childhood.
