“The natural state of motherhood is unselfishness. When you become a mother, you are no longer the center of your own universe. You relinquish that position to your children.” – Jessica Lange
So true! Our mothers do soooo much for us. That’s why Mother’s Day is our chance to turn the tables back to Mom. For at least one day make her the center of the universe again!
How about treating the Mom in your life to a Pajama Day this year? This is a day where Mom can lounge all day in her favorite pjs and not worry about a thing. She can stay home and relax, and the fun comes to her. No cooking, no cleaning, no running around.
There are so many nice things you can do for her to create a wonderful and relaxing day. But we encourage you to think about what she really loves and needs so you can create a really special day for her. Get creative!
Here are some ideas:
Is she a movie buff? Gather her favorite snacks and have a movie marathon day with her. You might even treat her to a luxurious throw blanket, a copy of her favorite movie, and some gourmet organic popcorn!
The Book Worm
Would she prefer to have quiet time to read and perhaps a meal with the family later? Drop off a gift basket for her in the morning with a cozy new pair of pajamas, some herbal tea, and the latest release from her favorite author. Come back later and cook her a delicious meal!
Is she a super stressed Mom who could really use some intense relaxation? Buy her an in-home massage. There are lots of massage businesses that will come right to your home, so check out the options in your local area. Top it off with one of these awesome robes and a new pair of slippers for a day of luxury!
The New Mom
Is she a new Mom and really could just use a day of restful sleep without having to care for the baby? Take the family out and give her some much needed quiet time. Before you go, outfit her with everything she needs to get some good zzzzzzz’s: a great nightshirt, some cute and cozy socks, and an eye mask. Come back later and surprise her with a bright bouquet of flowers!
Now its your turn! Tell us in the comments below what you do for your Mom on Mother’s Day!
