Being a mother is a tough job… and I’ve only been one for 2 years! Everyday I become more and more grateful for my own mother and all she has done and continues to do for me (and my 4 other siblings) as I try to pull it together while just raising one.
Motherhood can be hard but it is also so rewarding. There is nothing better than seeing your child learn and discover the world… and when she gives you kisses with those cute little lips. But really, usually all the things a mother does goes unthanked or unnoticed. Thank goodness there is at least one day dedicated to mothers that reminds us how amazing our own mothers are.
Sometimes finding a Mother’s Day gift can be a little difficult whether it be to a lack of money or ideas. I recently discovered the Mother’s Day Gift shop on Groupon and am now over loaded with ideas! There are so many various gifts ranging from the traditional bouquet of flowers and box of goodies to Spa and Beauty deals. You can find a gift for every mom in your life whether it be yourself, your mom, or your mommy friends.
What’s exciting is that Groupon is having a deal right now (today and tomorrow, 4/27-4/28) where you can receive up to 20% off up to 3 Local Deals, 3 Goods Items, and 3 Getaways Flash Deals. Get all your mother’s day shopping done in one place! Get something for your mom, friend or sister, and you! Use the promo code SALE3.
PLUS!!!! You can enter to win a Mother’s Day $0 Deal for 1 Year’s Worth of Spa Days on Groupon! That’s right! The winner gets $1200 Groupon Bucks to spend on anything from a massage to facial. I’ve never had either but they sure sound nice… especially when free! This is definitely what a hard working mother deserves!
I spent over an hour gawking over all the options and finally narrowed it down to 5 items from this Mother’s Day Campaign that I would love to receive (wink, wink to my husband):
I absolutely love this necklace! Isn’t that quote the truth?! I know that my mom is the world to me and I’m pretty sure I’m the world to my daughter. She would say it if she could string that many real words together. Now, my husband and I just need to decide on a name for babygirl #2 so I don’t have to go back and order another charm.
Um, hello!!! I’m a foodie so of course a set of shinny new knives is on my list! There is nothing better than chopping with a brand new set of sharp knives.
I love photo books! I would like to receive one already made or even just get the coupon to make my own.
I haven’t been to one of these places probably since a party I went to in the 3rd grade. This would be so fun to do as a date night with my husband!
I would love to have some large pictures of our little family in our home. I like the Canvas look because it’s professional but you don’t have to clean any glass. (call me lazy)
Don’t forget to show your mom she’s extra special this Mother’s Day and treat her to a nice gift to express your gratitude for continuing to love you despite the poop you smeared on the wall as a toddler and yelling “I hate you” when you were a teenager.
What’s on your Mother’s Day wish list? If you’re not a mom, what gift are you going to give to your mom?
