Ah, that wonderful day of the year when everyone celebrates MOM is almost here. Let the flowers, handmade trinkets, handprint cards and small electronics be given!
Yes, that was a touch of sarcasm that you detected. Those handmade gifts from the littles are priceless and filled with so much love, and truly I wouldn’t trade them for the world!
Today’s PSA is for the dads out there that feel compelled to do a little extra something special, but aren’t sure what we REALLY want for Mother’s Day.
Sharing is strongly encouraged!
A day off. No, seriously. We treasure time with our family and all the memories made doing fun, family-friendly activities but we also value time to ourselves to recharge. This particular commodity is hard to come by but much appreciated when time allows!
Family photo session complete with new outfits. A.K.A., slip a Tanger gift card into her sweet handprint card, so she can do a little shopping! And don’t say a word if she spends it all on herself. It IS her gift, after all, and this pairs nicely with her day off. Just sayin’.
Cleaning service. I saw a commercial recently for Mr. Clean where the husband was cleaning the house and let’s just say that the mom’s reaction was spot on. If food is the way to a man’s heart, acts of household chores is surely a win/win for you both. Trust me on this!
Pampering package. You can’t go wrong with a day at the spa. Or take it to the next level and book her a mani/pedi AND hair appointment at her favorite salon…and maybe have some champagne and flowers waiting on her when she gets there. Am I getting out of hand here? 🙂 Just put some thought into it and make it personal. You’ll do great!
Jewelry. There’s something about sparkle that makes our hearts flutter. Whether it’s a mother’s ring, those earrings we’ve mentioned that we like a dozen times or even just some new statement pieces that are free of baby teeth marks.
We’re guaranteed to have dropped hints at some point. 😉
The secrets are out, Dads. You’re welcome and good luck!
