Mother's Day is May 10, and that means you still have time to pull together the perfect gift for the lady who made you what you are today -- both literally and figuratively. While we're sure she'd love anything from Coyuchi, we also like the idea of giving her something you can't really put a bow on. Here are a few gift ideas that will remind mom why you're her favorite:
Plant something beautiful in her yard…perhaps a tree that will bloom each year at this time, or masses of bulbs that will pop up in the fall and remind her that she's loved.
Plan a day to just hang out together, talking and laughing...go to a museum exhibit, stroll on a beach or picnic in the park.
Get the family photos out of boxes and drawers and into frames to create a memory wall, or have the home movies converted to digital format, so she can watch them again.
Subscribe her to an organic CSA box (bonus: odds are, you'll score an invite to Sunday supper to share the bounty).
Tackle a home project you know she's been meaning to get around to forever. You may not be a carpenter or a plumber, but almost anyone can clean the garage, organize the pantry or repaint the front door.
Brunch is always the Mother's Day standby…but high tea is much more exceptional. Charm her with tiny sandwiches and spoil her with buttery scones and clotted cream.
Show her she taught you well, and cook her dinner. Trust us, whether it's boeuf bourguignon or just a big pot of spaghetti, it'll make her happy because you made it yourself.
