Skip the usual drugstore card this Mother’s Day

Spring has officially sprung, and Mother’s Day is just around the corner. If you’re like most people, you’re bound to find yourself wandering through a department store on the Friday before, looking for a gift that is at least a little different than the one you got her last year. And the year before.

This year, do her (and yourself!) a favor by branching out from the norm. We’ve put together a list of five ideas to help you get the creative juices flowing.

Grab a Picnic Basket and Beat the Crowds

Rather than spending your Sunday afternoon in a noisy, overcrowded chain restaurant, consider taking advantage of the beautiful weather. Put together a simple lunch and head to your nearest park. To stick with the spring picnic theme, you can bring along a new picnic basket and some bright melamine plates for her to keep.

Give the Gift of an Experience

Painting and pottery classes are currently enjoying their day in the sun, and the reasons for that are obvious. They provide a fun opportunity to take a break from the normal routine and try something different. Classes are a great way to pick up a new hobby, and even novices can create something that they’re proud of. Forgo your usual blouse-and-earrings combo and opt instead for a gift certificate for a local art class.

Give Mom a Break

No matter how young or old their children, most moms wear a wide variety of hats. Finding time to accomplish everything, much less enjoy some downtime, is often out of the question. This year, take one thing off of her plate by hiring a local maid service. You can choose to gift a one-time cleaning, set up bi-monthly service or arrange to have only certain rooms cleaned. Before purchasing a gift certificate for maid service, consider speaking with a local home cleaning service provider. They will be able to guide you in deciding a gift certificate amount.

Create Your Own Customizable Gift

Who doesn’t love a personalized gift? They make a great gifting option for the person who has everything, they’re thoughtful and it’s unlikely that they’ll ever be duplicated. If you’re the crafty sort, find an online tutorial for a homemade gift. From soaps and candles to sweet-smelling sachets and oilcloth book covers, there’s a tutorial to guide you through nearly any DIY adventure.

Short on time, talent or both? Choose a customizable gift and let someone else do the work for you. We offer a range of art and jewelry pieces, all of which can be personalized with a unique message. Simply record your message, and let us convert it to a visual soundwave. Your message can then be engraved onto a beautiful pendant, ring or wall hanging. We have a wide variety of options that can fit any style or budget.

Call to Her Inner Chef

From small regional companies to nationwide businesses, new meal services are cropping up all the time. Many of the popular ones offer customizable meal plans for vegetarian, low-carbohydrate or low-sodium diets. Meals can be ordered for nearly any number of people and can be scheduled to be delivered as often or as infrequently as desired. Most often, the ingredients come pre-measured and an easy-to-follow recipe is included. All the hard work is done; all that’s left is the fun part! Perfect for moms who enjoy cooking, gift certificates for a meal service are an unconventional gift that is sure to be appreciated.

This year, skip the drugstore card and choose a gift that won’t soon be forgotten.
