It’s almost May, and you know what that means…Mother’s Day! Mother’s Day offers a great opportunity to celebrate mom, and/or be celebrated by those that love. I think most moms will agree that it’s not the price of the gift, but the thought put into it, that makes our heart swell with love and joy. We love homemade crafts and cards and breakfasts SO much! And it’s such a special treat to get something extra that we would personally LOVE to use all year long.
If you’re a mom reading this, and you love the ideas—pass it on to your hubby! Most of these ideas can be done on any budget—making them a fun list to pass on, and even bookmark for years to come.
1. A subscription box
Have you seen some of the incredible subscription boxes there are to choose from these days? Most can be customized as a one-time purchase, all the way up to a yearly subscription.
Just a note on subscription boxes, be sure to check the “ship date” on your box to be sure the first one will make it to you in time to wrap for Mother’s day. Most boxes need to be ordered two weeks to a month ahead of time, so this one is NOT for the last minute shopper!
2. Personalized calendar
This is such a FUN and practical gift. It can be used every day, but feel new every month. The easiest way to make a great wall or desk calendar is through a photo website like Shutterfly or Snapfish or even Target.com (which is where I found the adorable option shown above). There is almost always a promo of some kind to be had on personalized photo gifts, no matter where you look. Also, be sure to check out Groupon and Ebates, which may offer savings on top of savings. (Tip: You can use Groupon WITH Ebates to double dip on savings).
3. A gift card for a personalized erin condren life Planner

4. A gift certificate to a local spa
Most moms rarely take time out for general self-care, let alone the time to pamper themselves a little. If it’s within budget, get her a membership to a local spa or reputable chain for a monthly massage. Massage Envy, Hand and Stone and Massage Luxxe are great options to choose from. A service like this can often
5. Send her flowers (monthly!)
Few things can make a woman feel more special and appreciated than a fresh flower delivery. These days, it’s easier than ever to put her smile on repeat with a monthly or quarterly flower subscription service. You literally go to the website once, pick a plan and let the flower company do the rest!
Enjoy Flowers is a subscription service that brings you long lasting fresh flowers once or twice a month. We offer premium quality as well as a variety of products and sizes, starting at just $41.65/month. The flowers are delivered four days after they’re cut for optimal freshness (lasting two times longer than store-bought flowers) and come with a 7-day guarantee. Use promo code MOMSDAY to receive 10% off at checkout.
BloomsyBox also offers gorgeous bouquets. It focuses on single varietal bunches versus mixed flower bouquets in order to simplify and eliminate the unnecessary extras. They’re also able to keep costs down by sourcing from local suppliers and using eco-friendly wrapping. Their plans start at $39.99/month and go up to $64.99 for the Martha Stewart collection of 24 long-stemmed roses. Save $5 off a month to month order with promo code BLOOMSYA5 or $10 off a 6-month subscription with promo code BLOOMSYA10.
6. A kindle paperwhite
If your wife or mom LOVES to read, she will LOVE the next few gifts! The new Kindle Paperwhite is small and transportable. What I love best about mine? It’s actually WATERPROOF! So now, I can indulge in a TRULY relaxing bubble bath since I no longer have to worry about accidentally dropping my e-reader or iPhone in the water. Be sure to check out the Kindle Unlimited membership, which will pair perfectly with this new gift.

7. An Audible subscription &
If she prefers to multi-task while she “reads”, consider getting her the Audible Gift Membership and some great wireless earbuds, like the Apple Air Pods. Choose between 1, 3, 6 and 12-month Audible memberships, starting at just $15 for a month.
With the AirPods, you can choose between the first generation model, which retails at $147, or the latest generation, which retails at $199. The main difference is that the new generation has wireless charging capability and a slightly faster processor, so it connects to your devices quicker. My first generation set has been great! One thing I highly recommend is a case to protect the
8. A family adventure
It doesn’t have to be anything big or fancy. Just some well-thought-out time together, where you and your family can truly enjoy
