This Sunday, May 12th is Mother’s Day and according to the NRF (National Retail Foundation) this year is expected to see the highest consumer spending to date for Mother’s Day. If you are like most Americans than you may also be considering the various ways to celebrate mom this Sunday. As a company that is run by real women to solve real woman problems, we have a few suggestions for Sunday that focuses on quality time above all else.
Whether it is your mother, mother in law, or grandmother that you want to spend the day with, start by considering what will really making your leading lady feel like she deserves the world!
Spa Day. Many times families get together to buy a gift certificate to a spa for the matriarch of their family. This year, consider making a nail appointment for the two of you and using that time to share some quality moments together. And it doesn’t hurt that you can enjoy a little splash of color for the remainder of the week.
Brunch. Take the opportunity to find an outdoor cafe that neither of you have visited before and enjoy a nice brunch. A new eatery can really make the day feel special and unique. It can even be the beginning of a tradition that repeats every year on Mother’s Day.
BBQ. If your chosen lady is busy during the day, consider making a BBQ just for her with some of her favorite eats. A BBQ can be a great experience as you spend time together preparing and waiting for the grill to cook up some delicious early summer treats. Be sure to choose foods that mom likes and most importantly, don’t let her do any of the work.
Take a hike, together. If mom loves the outdoors but never manages to get out and enjoy the warmer weather, find a local hike and plan an early morning trip to get the day started. If quality time and fitness is something your mom enjoys, then this would be the perfect gift for her.
A gift that lasts. Ahead of the summer season, consider giving the gift of freedom and confidence to mom with a HydroChic modest swimsuit. Nothing can be more freeing than wearing a swimsuit she can feel comfortable and confident when spending long sunny days with the kids or grand-kids at the beach, pool and water-park.
Ultimately knowing what mom wants and what makes her feel special is what counts. For some moms a bouquet of flowers may do the trick. Either way, don’t forgot to call that special lady this Sunday because as we all know, it’s the thought that counts.
Happy Mother’s Day from HydroChic!
