8. A Good Night’s Sleep
Being a mom is exhausting, which is why many of our readers told us they want a good night’s rest.

7. Dinner with Loved Ones
Whether you’re struck with a bout of homesickness or muddling through a bad day, all it takes is a bite of mom’s home cooked specialties to make things better. This year, return the favor by preparing a lovely dinner in honor of mom’s hard work through the years. Invite all your loved ones to a get-together and make a meal for her. We like this gold rimmed dinner set by Fitz and Floyd for serving your culinary masterpiece to the queen of the family.
A mother’s job is never done as the saying goes, so a relaxing pampering session is only well-deserved. Whether that’s with a trip to the salon, or with some home spa therapy there are countless of ways to de-stress. Set up an aromatherapy diffuser like this one from Saje, and create a soothing atmosphere that lets mom forget all her worries. You can even gift her a set of essential oils she can rotate throughout the week.
5. Stay in Touch
A handwritten letter straight from the heart is sure to bring a smile to her face this mother’s day. Sure there’s no replacing a good chat over breakfast and it’s easy to go online to set up a video call, but imagine her surprise when she finds a thoughtful personalized letter in her mailbox. Keep the correspondence going by giving her a personalized handheld embosser she can use for all her letters like this one from Grandin Road.
4. Health and Fitness Foremost
It’s important to stay fit and healthy but there’s no need to head to a crowded gym for that. Save mommy the trouble by giving her a beautiful peony garden yoga mat she’ll love to use at home. This way, she can exercise at her own time and pace.
3. Flowers and All Things Green
Flowers can bring vibrancy and color to any room so it’s only right to have plenty of space to display those blooms. Add some variety to her collection of planters with these wall hanging glass tube vases by Studio Connections for dainty stems. They also make wonderful wall decor with only a nail or a hook needed to set them up.
2. Clean and Clutter Free Home
For moms who love to organize, we have just the perfect gift. Container Store sells these mesh utility wall racks to fit all of mom’s craft supplies and fashion accessories. They come in a white minimal finish that blends seamlessly with white interiors. By giving her more storage space, you help to maintain a clean and clutter free home she’ll always be proud of.
