Hey, have you marked your calendar for Mother's Day yet? It's going to sneak up on you before you know it, and you're going to be stuck getting your mom those same old boring flowers, chocolates, and a card. Not that those are bad things — you should get your mom those things, if you want.
But if you really want to show the woman who carried you around for nine months that you care, break outside the norm and get her something unique that actually matches her personality. No two moms are the same, so why do they all get flowers and chocolate?
Maybe your mom is hip to all the trends, and you're always wondering where your favorite sweater went until you realize she borrowed it again. Give mom the gift of style with these sleek shades. This particular style couldn't get any trendier with the cat-eye shape and accentuation of the eyebrows. At Sunglass Warehouse, the glasses are ultra affordable, so you also might want to browse through the hundreds of styles available and snag some for yourself. We must admit that we did, and we're surprised at the quality of the glasses at the cost.
Your mom will literally never guess what she's going to get if you choose to get her Bonding Bees. That's because it's something completely new every month.
Here's what we mean: Bonding Bees is date night in a box. When you get a subscription, every month, a new date comes to your door. Inside the box, a surprise date awaits. Each box is stuffed full with a uniquely themed activity, from relationship building exercises to game night to food and recipes. You can give mom a date night with dad that she doesn't have to plan, or you can go on the date with her and enjoy some quality bonding time.
We got ourselves a box, and it did not disappoint. We opened the box to find it was everything needed for a romantic night in. And to set the mood, it gave us all the materials needed to make our own candle, and also play a more PG friendly game of Spin the Bottle. The booklet even gave us recipes for what type of food we should be enjoying: cheesecake. These people know what's up.
Isn't every mom a stressed out mom? And that's probably your fault, you troublemaker. Make up for it with this Sound Therapy System. You'll be getting her a quality dual-speaker stereo sound system all in a compact size that's perfect for taking around wherever she wants to listen, or setting up on a nightstand. What does that mean? It's basically super bass.
Mom can play her favorite tunes with the bluetooth setup on her phone, tablet, or laptop. But she can also choose from a variety of white noise sounds to play, and get her feeling all nice and relaxed. We'll be honest, when we picked this little guy up, we were more stoked on the idea that we could play some Imagine Dragons with high quality stereo. Then we tried out the white noise features, and were sold. Not to be too meta, but it's currently on as we're writing this, and although we're in the middle of the city suburb, our room sounds like it's a tranquil ocean getaway.
You might be looking at this and thinking, what do you mean, a yoga towel? Don't you mean a yoga mat? Nope, we mean a yoga towel, and this Leus yoga towel means business. As you can see, this towel is perfect for busting out some yoga on the beach, or bringing to a hot yoga session. It can also go over mom's yoga mat, because yoga mats, believe it or not, are super full of germs. Bleh.
If your mom loves her yoga sessions, give her one of these ultra soft, ultra absorbent yoga towels. It's anti-slip and doesn't bunch up, a fact that we learned quickly when testing it out because yes, we were a little skeptical. But no, this towel stayed flat from tree pose to warrior one. (Although we all know we're all just waiting for child's pose.) And if mom is into fun, vibrant colors, this mat is a no brainer. All those boring mats, be gone. Your yoga towel is here to brighten the day.
So your mom loves wine - maybe even a little more than she'd like to admit. It's Mother's Day, so spoil her with vino from Santa Margherita wines. This particular pinot is a delight on any palette. Really. We're picky wine drinkers, and couldn't get enough of this clean and dry golden apple taste. We want to bring it along to a dinner party — to mainly drink ourselves — or to a trendy picnic in the park.
With that bottle of wine, you might even want to cook her dinner if you really want to be the favorite child. This pinot would pair perfectly with some fresh cheese, pasta, and some fancy seared tilapia. Hey, this is for the bougie mom, after all. Santa Margherita even helps you out with recipes that go perfectly with whatever wine you might choose. Go ahead and pop open a bottle or two — you're celebrating the fact that you haven't driven mom insane yet after all these years.
Dad jokes seem to get all the credit, but whatever happened to mom jokes? You know your mom is funny. Where else would you have gotten your great sense of humor? These dish towels from The Neighborgoods have got a great sense of humor, too. Just like your mom who had to think it was funny that she washed your dishes all those years.
We love a good pun, and that's why we love ourselves these towels. You can choose from a whole variety of different food related word play. We also love them because they're super soft, absorbent, and eco-friendly. But mostly the puns.
You can also get yourself — er, we mean, mom — some punny aprons, mugs, and other goodies. The fun doesn't have to stop at washing dishes.
