This happens every year when mother’s day just sneaks up behind you and you get super guilty that you forgot. Don’t be.
It happens to the best of us.
And a girl boss doesn’t really sit by the fire marking dates on a calendar waiting leisurely now, does she?
Forgetting mother's day doesn’t make you a bad daughter, it just makes you a busy girl boss who doesn’t have the time to brainstorm on what she should get her mom for this special day.
So we did the brainstorming for you and here are our top picks.
1. For the Mom who needs to be pampered:
Our mothers spend their whole life taking care of us and making sure we have everything we need.
They never take the time out to care for themselves and truly pamper themselves.
If your mom is just like this toiling away to make her family happy pamper her with a spa trip or a basket full of beauty products and goodies so she can pamper herself in the comforts of her home.
2. For the mom who doesn’t get enough time with you
We are our parent's most precious gifts and nothing we can give them is more valuable than our love and attention.
Sometimes we girl bosses get so sucked into work so much we forget spending time with our moms and even though they’ll miss us and want to be with us they won’t complain because that’s not what mom’s do ever.
So this mother’s day gift her a day with you. Rearrange your schedule and devote the entire day to her. Go watch a movie or go shopping together, just spend quality time with her.
3. For the mom whose middle name is “Globe Trotter”
If your mom is super hip and loves to travel give her a little something that will remind her of you on her trips around the world.
Like a preppy passport cover or a statement luggage tag that will help her spot her luggage on the conveyor belt.
4. For the mom with a sweet tooth
Candies and sweets aren’t just for kids it can be for moms too.
Remember how your mom used to stop you from eating a lot of sugar?
This year indulge your mother’s sweet cravings and bake her a cake or cookies. If baking isn’t one of your strengths then buy her candies and baked sweet sumptuous goodies.
5. For the mom who loves writing
Mother’s day is all about indulging your mom and making her feel loved, and nothing will help forward that cause more than encouraging her passion and showing her your support in her likes and dislikes.
If your mom is an avid writer show support for her hobby by gifting her cool notebooks and attractive stationary.
You’ll find some great stationary and notebooks here:
6. For the mom who is a fitness freak
It’s amazing if your mom cares about her health and fitness as much as she cares about you.
There are numerous things you could give her. Like a full-blown home cooked healthy meal, or new running shoes.
You could sign her up for a particular fitness course she hasn’t been introduced to yet. The possibilities are numerous!
7. For the mom who loves home decor
A lot of our moms are obsessed with keeping the house perfect and are forever on the quest for things that can help increase the charm of their already beautiful home.
If this is the case and your mom has a Martha Stewart-y side to her get her small home decor pieces like throw pillows and wall hangings that will go with the theme of her decor but also be a part of you in the grand scheme of things
8. For the mom who is a wine connoisseur
If your mom likes to kick back at the end of the day with a movie, popcorn and a glass of wine and actually cares about what the wine more, then you should definitely try and get her into a great wine tasting event or a tour of a vineyard.
Something that nurtures her affinity for wine and also is fun. You could accompany her so she feels extra special.
9. For the mom who is a woman of style
Have you looked at your mom get ready for a party as a kid? Starry-eyed thinking she is the most stylish, most beautiful woman ever.
If her sense of style and her poise still makes you feel like that get her a gift card from her favorite store or better yet go ahead browse all the items and select something you feel your mom will love
10. For the mom who enjoys simple joys of life
If your mom is one of the people who doesn’t get impressed with gifts easily.
Then you have your work cut out for you. But that doesn’t mean you can’t absolutely nail it this mother’s day. Start by getting her a simple breakfast in bed.
Make something simple that you’re confident will taste great and write her a small note, handmade of course.
Leave cards throughout the house for her to find with reasons you love her and thank her for all she has done. Add anecdotes and pictures to personalize it.
Make her feel special throughout the day by simple but sweet gestures. If you aren’t particularly artistic You can find great cards here:
All of you girl bosses out there, this Mother’s Day pause your mission of world dominance and take the time to thank the incredible women who inspire us and have helped us be who we are!
