Five Unique Gifts for Mom
We certainly all deserve to treat ourselves to a bit of indulgence after the past year we’ve all experienced. But Mothers probably deserve it the most. So, pamper your Mom this Mother’s Day with a gift that she will appreciate throughout the year! LiveWell Placements has five ideas that will allow you to spoil your Mom both physically and spiritually.
Sure, you can buy your Mom a beautiful bouquet, but how long does that last. What about giving a gift to enable her to enjoy beautiful blooms while also allowing her creativity to shine through. The London Flower School offers online flower arranging courses by acclaimed floral designers from around the world.
Is Mom a Foodie?
Featuring an artisanal selection of cheeses and accouterments, Murray’s Mother’s Day Collection makes a yummy gift. All of the goodies are made by women cheesemakers around the country, and it comes with a tote bag that can be used to take your gourmet selection on the road easily. Better yet, treat her to Murray’s club, so she a new treat to look forward to every month.
Downtime? Yes, please.
Doesn't every Mother need some time just for themselves? Filled with lavender and soothing flaxseed, this silk eye pillow is a gift that will help her relax and rejuvenate. Add a luxurious bubble bath from the Library of Flowers, and she will thank you.
The Art of Tea
Tea has been a staple in many cultures, such as China and Japan, for thousands of years. And while drinking the tea is the end goal, tea making is just as important. It’s about ritual, beauty, and relaxation. Treat your Mother to a book on the ancient art of teamaking, which looks at the philosophy, history, and tea culture in China. Add in a subscription to a tea of the month club so she can sample teas from across the globe.
Does Your Mom have the Travel Bug?
Unfortunately, most of us have not had the opportunity to travel much this past year. But, while you may not be able to send your Mother on a trip yet physically, you can transport her by putting together a few thoughtful items that remind her of her dream trip. Let's say that your Mother has always loved Paris. Take her there emotionally with goodies that you put together yourself. For example, fill a lovely box with the following items: a book of photos of Parisian style or gardens, a bottle of Chanel Perfume, baguettes with cheeses and pates, and a bottle of Burgundy along with a cd of famous French love songs. Let Mom spend a relaxing afternoon dreaming about the city of lights.
If your Mother has children at home or is caring for an aging parent, then give her the gift of time. Offer to hire a helper for a few hours or take a shift yourself if you live close to her. Moms don't often take time for themselves so make it easy for her to relax and take advantage of some much-needed downtime. She will be sure to appreciate it!
