Luxury Gift Ideas for Mom on Mothers Day. Show Her How Much You Really Care. Make Her Gift Special


Perhaps, her own private, monogrammed jet is a bit over your budget. Not a problem. She doesn't want one anyway.

 This is a woman who has been on call to her children for their entire lives. She is a bottomless pit of love and devotion. No perfunctory shabby treatment will do this year. No, and not everyone chipping in to eat out at the neighborhood dive either. No potted geraniums, even though they are beautiful. Not good enough for Mom.

 Here are just a few Mothers Day gift suggestions that we think will honor Mom in a worthy way. 

Is she a chocolate lover? How about having a box of truffles flown in fresh from a 5-star chocolatier in Paris? If you can manage it, why not have a box flown in (different flavors) every month, for a year?  Now, that's a luxurious Mother's Day gift! 

An evening out at the theatre can be the outing she has been wanting. If you live close to a major city, purchase a couple orchestra seats to the new hot show with the great reviews. The second ticket is for the partner of her choice. It could be Dad. Or it could even be you. Arrange for a limousine to escort her from home to a great dinner, to the theatre, and back home again. 

Are her spirits buoyed by salt air? Book a weekend at a charming inn by the sea. Include a gift certificate for a great nearby restaurant, and another one to a spa. This is a wonderful chance for her to unwind and relax. As a matter of fact, why don't you go with her? I know she would be thrilled to spend time with you, especially quality time. 

Maybe your Mom is happiest at home, indulging her passion for cooking.  Expression of her culinary skills will be enhanced with tools and pots she has been wanting for so long. A full set of All-Clad, and Le Creuset for stewing and braising would thrill any good cook. 

I'm sure you get the idea. This is a BIG person in your life. She's the one who is the reason you are here. She nurtured you, listened to your stories, your joys, your sorrows, and she plans never to stop. That's Mom. 

Mothers Day is a celebration of HER, a chance to say "Gee, thanks Mom."
