 1  Spa/massage gift certificate.

Mothers need some time off every once in a while. From working day in and day out, even just an hour of nothing but relaxation will do. All you have to do is to buy her a gift certificate and make a reservation at her favorite spa! A massage, facial and nail treatment will leave help her de-stress from all the work she has been doing.   

 2  Breakfast in bed.

The little things will mean the most to your mother. She has cooked for you countless times so the least you can do is to cook your best meal for her on her special day. Take cooking lessons or learn her favorite dish via YouTube, the possibilities are endless and the result is priceless. 

 3  Treat her like a queen.

If you can get her off her feet 24/7 then go ahead and do it! You're supposed to do this for her everyday but you can make Mother's Day even much better. Tend to all of her requests—even paint her nails if she wants you to! The more time you bond with her, the happier she will be. Treat her like the queen that she is!


 4  Flowers.

It’s always nice to brighten someone’s day up with flowers—especially if it’s your mom’s. Greet her with a bouquet of her favorite flowers. Although if you’re not quite sure about what it is, its best to go with roses or lilacs. Pink roses signify grace, elegance and appreciation, while Lilacs signify love between mother and child making these the perfect flowers for Mother’s Day.

 5  Yoga class.

No matter how many times we want to tell them how much we love them and how thankful we are for them, its always hard for those words to come out of our mouths. This is why a hand written letter will be the perfect gift for mother’s day.  It will be the best way to show your mother how much she means to you.
