The answer to what women want? Sorry to disappoint, but the answer to that question most likely doesnât exist. There is no one perfect gift for all women, but there are such things as perfect gifts for one woman. For Motherâs Day this year, save yourself (and your bank account) a trip to Tiffanyâs, because youâre not on the right track. Check out this list of things that your Mom actually wants on her day of honor, and relax knowing that youâve found something thatâs perfect for your leading lady.
Moms have a busy hectic life. After all the cleaning, cooking, working, playing, reading sometimes a gal needs a break. How often does Mom get the entire house to herself to just relax, take a bath, read a book, and watch TV? Probably not that often. Sometimes, what Moms want more than anything, is just time to relax all alone.
Moms have moms too, you know, and there arenât always opportunities for the two of them to hang out anymore. Maybe all she wants to do is spend some quality time with her own mom. Think about arranging a dinner or lunch for the two of them to get in some mother-daughter time together and reconnect.
Spic and Span
Want Motherâs Day to be better than Christmas? If Mom wakes up bright-eyed and bushy-tailed on Motherâs Day to a house thatâs clean, laundry thatâs done, and dishes that are put away, sheâs going to be one happy, stress-free lady. Try to think of the small chores that your mom does to get the house in order. (The small things count for a lot.) Give her a Sunday she can finally enjoy without any cleaning.
All Together Now
With everyoneâs hectic schedules, itâs often hard to find time to just be together. And it sounds so simple, right? But when was the last time your whole family was justâ¦ together? Hanging out? Catching a movie? It sounds silly and clichÃ©, but your mom would probably really l-o-v-e some quality time with her favorite people.
Live in Luxury
Moms worry constantly about things and always want to make sure that her children are taken care of first. This doesnât leave a lot of time to worry about her. Try going to a spa with her or getting her something you know sheâd feel really guilty buying herself. Thatâs not to say you need to spend a lot of money â women feel guilty about buying silly things too, like DVDs, kindles, books, who knows. The point is, there is something your mom has said, âOh I want this, but I donât want to spend the money on it,â even though itâs only $20. Find out what it was and go for it.
