Man’s Guide to Mother’s Day Gifts

By Brenda L Hopkins

“All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel Mother.” – Abraham Lincoln

Men are never good at buying gifts and Mother’s Day gifts are no different. Daughters have it easy a day at the spa or a homemade gift come natural to them. But men procrastinate and wait for the last minute and then still struggle at finding the right gift for their mother. Here are a few easy gifts that can save the day.

The old stand by:

There is nothing wrong with giving your mother flowers on Mother’s day let just avoid the gas stations for buying them. Ordering them on line is an easy task and can be done last minute and still arrive on time for the big day. There are lots of great arrangements already put together and they come in many different price ranges.

Light of my life:

Women love candles the smell the dancing flame. So why not stop at your local gift shop and pick out a candle or two while you are picking out the perfect card to send along with them. If you aren’t sure what scent your mom may like choose a scent that reminds you of her or a special memory. If you went to the beach a lot then choose a beach themed scent or you can’t live without her chocolate cake then a chocolate scented candle is perfect. Add a little note along with the candle to tell her all about the memories that this smell evokes in your mind. She will love the thought that you put into it.

A day at the Spa:

A spa gift card is a great gift to say I love you and thank you for all you have done for me. They are easy to pick up at the local spa and come in any denomination. Perfect to help your mom relax and enjoy a day to herself. Also available are universal spa gift cards so there is no need to hassle with what spa she may enjoy better. She can choose for herself.

A night out to eat:

If you live to far away to take your mom out to eat on Mother’s day then why not enjoy a universal city gift card, available in multiple denotations and excepted at many different restaurants in cities around the US it is the perfect gift for any mom who loves a night out to eat.

A picture is worth a thousand words:

Engraved picture frames are another great gift idea although they do require a bit more planning the reward at the end is just as great. Mom’s love pictures and a special picture frame with a message just for her is a great way to say I love you.
