Mother’s Day is the one official day out of each calendar year devoted entirely to moms of all ages. Whether you’re celebrating a mother of 50 years or 50 minutes, you get to honour them and demonstrate how much you appreciate everything they do.
This year has been (and continues to be) a struggle for Canadians everywhere. The pandemic has changed how we interact with one another, and to say that it’s been a challenge would be a massive understatement. For example, you may not have been able to see much of your mom at all this year, and you miss her terribly. Perhaps your friend just had her first baby, but you’re unable to visit until everyone has been vaccinated.
Are you looking for ways to show the moms in your life how much you miss them with the perfect Mother’s Day present? You want to give something extra meaningful this year since it’s been such a challenging time. Read on to discover three creative gifts for the mothers in your life.
A Curated Playlist
Do you remember making mixtapes for your friends back in high school? You may have made it on a cassette tape or burned tracks on to a CD (remember the Napster days?), and it was always so much fun to put all of your favourite songs into one place for your friends. Music is full of nostalgia and great memories — it’s the perfect way to show someone how much you love them.
Why not make a unique playlist for mom? Use a program such as Spotify to curate a special mix of tunes for the woman in your life. Add the songs that the two of you have shared and loved over the years, and make sure that she can download and listen to the playlist before you send the link. She will cherish the music and enjoy it for a long time to come.
Nothing says “I love you” like something handmade. Check out Prints Canada — an online custom screen printing company based in Ontario. You could make matching shirts for the two of you or create a series of personalized gear for mom. Consider placing an expression such as World’s Best Mom on the shirts or getting creative by designing something just for her, with her favourite flowers or patterns.
Make a series of shirts she could wear each day of the week. She’ll love such a thoughtful gesture and the great additions to her summer wardrobe!
A Day at the Spa
One of the best gifts in the history of gift-giving is a restful day of pampering at the spa. While spas in your area might be closed because of COVID, most businesses still offer certificates to use once everything is back up and running.
Choose a spa that offers all the good stuff, from a full-body massage to an organic facial. Even if she can’t enjoy the spa day just yet, she will be so grateful to have the day to look forward to in a few weeks.
Give the mother in your life something nice this year. A personalized playlist, customized clothing, and a luxurious day at the spa are all excellent gifts that any mom would hold dear.
