Your mother is one special lady, and what better way to show your love and appreciation for everything she does for you and your family than by purchasing her a special birthday present just for her. Below are five ideas to get started on your shopping list.
Whether you find a print of her favorite painting in the Louvre, a vintage movie poster, or an original piece from an art fair, you can show how well you know your mom’s taste and decorating aesthetic by purchasing her artwork. Every time she looks at it, she will think of you, and that may be the most rewarding part of the birthday gifts.
A keepsake piece of jewelry always makes a fine birthday gifts. You can easily tailor your choice to fit your mother’s style, whether she likes a pretty pair of dangling earrings or a statement necklace. Finding homemade jewelry for sale would add an extra special touch to your choice for your mom.
Family Portrait Session
It seems like every mother longs to capture memories. There may be no better way to help your mom do this than by scheduling a family portrait session. You can easily hire a local photographer that specializes in capturing sweet and candid moments between family members. Schedule the session’s location at a favorite family spot, like the beach, a country house, or a local arboretum.
A lot of moms don’t make a lot of time to do special things that they enjoy for themselves. You could encourage your mom’s love of dancing, gourmet cooking, or painting by purchasing a handful of classes that speak to her interests and hobbies outside of family life. It would show her how well you know her as a person beyond her as your mother.
Device Free Dinner
Putting away a cell phone during family meals seems like more and more of a challenge these days. If your mother is less interested in gifts, and more interested in spending uninterrupted quality time with you, then she may appreciate brunch or dinner out (on your dime, of course) where you purposefully leave all of your electronic devices in the car or at home. The conversations will be more meaningful and will undoubtedly be treasured by her.
Mothers (and surrogate mothers) are women who deserve to be treated with extra respect and love. Use your mom’s birthday as the perfect excuse to spoil her.
