Okay, so it’s Mother’s Day weekend this Sunday. I’d love to have a weekend away with my family or even my girlfriends but this year it just isn’t going to happen. Given that, I would like to give some great gift suggestions to all those late-gift givers out there. (Wives please stop reading, print this out and hand it to those husbands who tend to be on the late-gift givers list.)

  • A really easy thing to do that is fairly inexpensive is to get your wife or partner or significant other a gift certificate to a local nail salon for a manicure and pedicure.  A manicure is just fine if you can’t spring for both.  Every woman could use a manicure to help heal her dishpan hands!
  • A massage at the local spa could reap days and days of rewards for the entire family.  A relaxed baby-mommy is a happy baby-momma, ‘nuff said.
  • Dinner out or a Sunday brunch may be what she likes to feel appreciated.  It’s always a good idea to give Mom a day or night off from cooking to make her feel like you appreciate all that sweat and planning over the stovetop.
  • For those of you who can afford it, bling is always the way to go.  It doesn’t matter if it’s yellow gold, white gold, platinum or a silver locket with the kids pictures inside.  Jewelry is always best and it’s even better when you can afford diamonds! 
  • Flowers are always welcome!  Go for the flowers that are in season if you are on a budget—tulips, hyacinths, and daffodils are beautiful and appropriate.  Roses are the cliché but a good idea is always her favorite whatever the season.
