What Moms REALLY want for Mother’s Day!

Mother's Day Gifts Moms REALLY Want That Are Fun, Affordable, and Thoughtful

Mother's Day is a perfect opportunity to celebrate the incredible moms in our lives. While traditional gifts like flowers and chocolates are always appreciated, let’s explore ten thoughtful gestures that she really wants but dare not tell you. Use some of these Mother's Day tips and she’ll be filled with joy and appreciation for years to come. 

1. Give Her a Break!: Every mom deserves some time to relax and recharge. Whether it's a few hours to read a book, take a nap, or enjoy a leisurely bath, giving Mom a break from her daily responsibilities shows your appreciation for all she does.

2. Treat Her to an Amazing Meal (She’s definitely won’t be in the mood to cook… and shouldn’t!): Moms often spend a lot of time preparing meals for their families, so on Mother's Day, give her a break from the kitchen. Whether it's breakfast in bed, a homemade dinner prepared by the family, or a reservation at her favorite restaurant, letting Mom enjoy a delicious meal without having to cook is a wonderful way to show your love and appreciation.

3. Surprise Her with Fun (because after raising children, she probably forgot what fun is): Pay attention to Mom's interests and desires throughout the year. Whether she's mentioned wanting to try a new hobby like yoga or pottery, or simply enjoys spending time outdoors at her favorite park, surprising her with an activity she loves shows that you've been listening and care about her happiness.

4. PLEASE Give Her Some Peace and Quiet (You know she deserves that s**t): Moms often juggle multiple responsibilities and rarely have time to unwind. On Mother's Day, create a peaceful atmosphere by taking care of household chores, keeping noise levels down, and giving Mom the space she needs to relax and enjoy some quiet time alone or with her thoughts. Whether it's asking Dad to take the kids to the park or letting Mom watch her favorite show for an hour or two in peace, it's a simple yet meaningful way to show your appreciation for all she does.

5. Give Her the Gift of Choice (So she doesn’t have to give you a fake smile and pretend she likes what you came up with 😬): While it's thoughtful to select a gift for Mom, sometimes the best present is the ability to choose something she truly wants or needs. Give Mom the freedom to treat herself by providing her with money or a gift card that she can use to purchase something special.

6. Surprise Her with an Edible Arrangement (Because it’s tasty AND beautiful): Give Mom a gift that combines beauty and taste with an edible arrangement. These arrangements typically consist of a mix of fresh fruits arranged to resemble a bouquet of flowers. Not only is it visually stunning, but it also provides Mom with a delicious and healthy treat to enjoy. It's a unique and thoughtful gesture that shows you've put effort into selecting something special for her Mother's Day.

7. Treat Her to a Spa Day or Massage (And do it again next month because once a year is not enough): Give Mom the gift of relaxation and pampering by treating her to a day at the spa or a rejuvenating massage. This allows Mom to unwind and let someone else take care of her for a change, providing her with much-needed self-care and rejuvenation.

8. A Sincere Card from the Children (And don’t skimp on the details; you all need to reflect on the hard work she does): Sometimes, the simplest gestures have the most profound impact. Encourage the children to express their gratitude and appreciation for Mom by writing her a heartfelt card. In the card, they can detail all the ways Mom has made a difference in their lives and express their love and thanks for everything she does.

9. Lots of Hugs and Kisses (Because moms love their babies, no matter how old they are): Show Mom how much she's loved and appreciated with plenty of hugs and kisses on Mother's Day. Physical affection is a powerful way to convey love and gratitude, and it's a simple yet meaningful gesture that can brighten Mom's day and make her feel cherished. Did you know that research shows that women need eight to ten meaningful touches a day to maintain physical and emotional health?

10. Hire a Cleaner for the Day (She’d love for someone else to do the job for once): Give Mom the gift of a clean and tidy home by hiring a cleaner for the day. This allows Mom to relax and enjoy her special day without worrying about household chores. It's a practical yet thoughtful gesture that shows you want Mom to feel truly pampered on Mother's Day.


As Mother's Day approaches, let's remember that it's not just about the gifts we give, but the love and appreciation we show. By honoring Mom's wishes for a break, a delicious meal, thoughtful surprises, and heartfelt gestures, we can make her day truly special. Let's cherish the mothers in our lives not just on Mother's Day, but every day, for all they do and all they are. Happy Mother's Day to all the amazing moms out there!
