Mother’s Day 2022 is right around the corner. If you need gift ideas, we’re here to deliver with some of our favorites. What you end up getting your wife or Mom will depend on her personality and tastes. Most Moms really just want to spend time with family and maybe feel a little pampered.
So, here it goes.
Mother’s Day Brunch
This is a classic idea that never goes out of style. You may make reservations at a local restaurant, but you and the kids can also create a great breakfast or brunch at home. Serve up some of the things she loves, from her favorite coffee to an omelet to cinnamon rolls to a mimosa. Breakfast in bed is always kind of messy, so maybe opt for the dining room or patio, if the weather allows.
Be sure to have nice linens, silverware, and some flowers. And make sure to do a thorough cleanup.
Family Birthstone Jewelry
Whether you get a necklace, a ring, or a bracelet, personalized jewelry with the birthstones for all the children is a wonderful gift she’ll treasure. Visit your local jeweler in person or go online to see what can ship in time.
If it’s too late this year, remember this idea for next year, or get the jewelry “just because.”
When we say spa day, we mean more than just a gift certificate to her favorite salon and spa. You will need to coordinate schedules with her so that while she’s at the spa, you and the kids do some extra work around the house and yard, tackling her least favorite tasks. Then, the relaxation of the spa will last even longer once she’s back home.
Cozy Hammock Chair
Another fun and inexpensive idea but one she’s sure to love is a cozy hammock chair. She’ll be able to relax, read a book, take a nap, or watch the kids from the comfort of this chair.
It’s suitable for hanging from the ceiling of a covered porch, pavilion, swing set, or stand. You can also set it up indoors if she’d prefer.
High-End Patio Umbrella
Give her the shade she needs with a high-end patio umbrella from authenTEAK. Or consider getting several umbrellas for different areas of your patio. They have a full range of market umbrellas, cantilever umbrellas, tilting umbrellas, and more.
Movie Projector and Outdoor Projector Screen
Here’s one the whole family can enjoy. If she loves movie nights, she’ll love being able to watch movies outdoors.
Do your research and get the projector and screen that best suit your needs and available space. Just Google “Best Outdoor Movie Projectors and Screens” and you’ll get all sorts of review articles to help guide you.
Go Big and Get Her a New Inground Pool
If you want to get her a Mother’s Day gift she’ll never forget, go big and get her an inground pool where she can enjoy time in the sun, time with the kids, time with the grandkids, or all of the above.
Of course, you can’t just make an inground pool magically appear before Mother’s Day, but you could put an appointment card, brochure, or our Outdoor Oasis Dream Guide (book) in a card or box and wrap it up.
Dream It. Build It. Live It.
