What (Most) Moms REALLY Want for Mother’s Day

Being a mother is one of the hardest and most rewarding jobs on earth. I’ve given this a lot of consideration, and I’ve realized that this is the equation for a perfect Mother’s Day gift (I’m like a genius):

Thoughtful + Awwww + Easy

(That’s not easy for you, it means something that will make her mom-life easier)

If you click on the bolded header, it will give you all kinds of ideas. I’m trying to make this so easy for you!! 😃

Say thank you. That sounds easy enough, right? But for a day as special as Mother’s Day, a woman should feel like you are genuinely thankful for all that they do.

Do something extra. Like do something, and then do something else.

Be thoughtful. It’s not just about buying a card and an expensive gift. It doesn’t even have to be expensive! Really put some thought into what kind of gift you want to get her.

Validate her good work. It’s easy in a marriage to fall into the trap of “well I know you do THIS, but I do THIS.”  It’s not about who’s doing more, or who’s working harder, it’s all about you doing it together. So even if you think she could do some things different, or better, or even if you think she could do more—take a step back and validate the work she actually does. I promise you it’s more than you think it is. And then it’s worth 10xs that much.

Make something in her life easier. This should be the bonus gift. Those Amazon Dash buttons—those make my life easier. Maybe hiring a housekeeper once a month would make her life easier! Get her car cleaned or buy her a trash can for her car. Think of anything simple that would just make something she does just a little easier.

Pamper her. She’s your partner! Think of how she likes to unwind. Does she like to read? Does she like to drink? Does she like to work out? Or does she like to do nothing? Start from there.

Put in some effort. If she has to tell you what to buy, you’re not putting in enough effort!

Leave her alone. I’m sure there’s some women out there that are going to gasp and say they want to spend Mother’s Day (like all day) with her children. This.is.not.me. Cut her some slack and give her some me-time. She will thank you afterwards 😉

 

Until my next delivery ❤


I want to hear what you have to say!
