How do you make a meaningful Mother’s Day Gift for the mom who has it all? My mother is a pretty special lady. She raised two successful kids who she helps selflessly now. Whenever we need her, she drops most anything and heads to either Iowa to help me, or Seattle to help my sister. She was there shortly after the birth of each of our collective six children and tirelessly cooked, cleaned, took care of the other children, and did laundry while we snuggled and enjoyed lovely baby-moons.  When I had back surgery several years ago, my mom was there. And when my youngest daughter needed not one, but three hip surgeries, I could always count on my mother. She was there. Every. Single. Time. She’s really been a life saver for me, and trust me, I know what a handful my FOUR kids are for my mother!

But my mom does more than help her own two daughters. In the last several years, she’s also become the primary caretaker for her own ailing parents, first my grandmother who died two years ago, and now my 91 year old grandfather. She drives my grandfather to all of his many doctor appointments, brings him his coveted Dairy Queen Blizzards almost every single day, and cooks from scratch and grinds all of his food since cancer paralyzed half his face several months ago and left him unable to chew well. I know this full time care-taking job is hard on her, so I wanted to give her a meaningful gift this year {which is hard to do for someone who really wants for nothing} to encourage her to relax.

Many of my mom friends want pretty much the same thing in most gifts:  relaxation, beauty, sentimentality. With a little thought, and a quick trip to Walmart, I was able to put together what I consider to be the perfect mother’s day gift. Here’s what I came up with.

Relaxation

What overworked mother doesn’t want relaxation? When my husband asks me what I want for anything, I almost always answer, peace and quiet. A little relaxation goes so far to help keep the stress at bay and moms who aren’t stressed are a lot happier than stressed moms. I picked an Epsom Salt Soak to add to my meaningful mother’s day gift this year. Epsom salt is great for reducing toxins in our bodies and is a staple in my natural health care cabinet.

Beauty

I don’t splurge on a lot of things, but I love fresh flowers. My mom’s favorite flower is the iris, so I added a bouquet of beautiful irises to my gift for her this year. I like simple bouquets so I only wanted the one type of flowers. Fresh flowers just add so much elegance to the home and they smell good. What more could you want? How can you not look at those gorgeous flowers and feel your body relax?

Sentimentality

Finally, the perfect mother’s day gift has to include something sentimental. I love to give pictures I take myself with my gifts. I cajoled my mother and kids out on the lawn a few days ago and snapped a few simple pictures. I love the way everyone’s personality shines in this picture. No, everyone isn’t looking perfectly at the camera, but the light is perfect and the colors are wonderful. For once, no one cried or threw a fit when I snapped these photos.

The hero of the gift, of course, is the card. The perfect card rounds out the sentimentality and pulls the whole gift together.

I found many of the items for my meaningful mother’s day gift at the American Greetings Display at Walmart. On one shelf you’ll find cards, gift bags, chocolate, items to encourage relaxation, picture frames, and more. It’s a great place to start as you think about the perfect gift for your mother {or yourself!}

  1. Great ideas! I got my mom a similar gift this year (but I won't share in case she is reading this...). And, while I'm not a mom, I am a DOG MOM, and my favorite way to spend the day is with John and our pups at the dog park.
