Whoa! Did this year suddenly move double speed ahead!? Mother’s Day is quickly approaching, and is in fact less than a week away! Whether you’re her husband or her child, don’t forget to treat the special mom(s) in your life with a treat on Sunday, May 12! Van Scoy Diamonds is full of Mother’s Day ideas to help her feel like a queen on her day.
A Day Off
While she earned the right to celebrate this special day in honor of her because of everything she does as a mom, without a doubt we know she would LOVE the day off! If you’re dad and have youngsters running around the house, do your best to allow her to sleep late while you keep the kiddos quiet and out of the bedroom. Imagine her surprise when she wakes later than 9am completely rested! When you hear her beginning to stir, start the waking part of her day off right by taking her breakfast-in-bed.
**TIP – Make sure mom doesn’t have a hidden cell phone alarm set to go off ridiculously early. If she does, turn it off!**
For the rest of the day, enlist your kids to help you become Mom’s Maids. Don’t allow her to lift a finger (or foot) unless mother nature calls, and be at her beck-and-call. This includes meals. You don’t have to be a five-star chef to cook a frozen meal from the grocery and serve salad from a bag. Better yet? Draw mom a lovely bubble bath and take the kids to the grocery to tackle this week’s grocery shopping while she’s soaking in a quiet bliss.
Unfortunately, family commitments on Mother’s Day may make it impossible for the mom in your house to take the day off. If this is the case, schedule a Saturday in the near future for her to spend at a local spa. Sure, she may miss the day’s numerous little league baseball games and dance classes, however she’ll come refreshed and ready to tackle the year ahead.
**TIP – Not sure what to schedule Mom for at the spa? Start with a facial, massage and manicure/pedicure. This day is not about making her looking beautiful, but instead about allowing her to feel relaxed. Therefore, skip out on scheduling any hair-related services unless she specifically tells you she wants them AND who she wants to go to.**
At Van Scoy Diamonds, we won’t deny that we have a gorgeous selection of jewelry for you to purchase from any time of year. However, for Mother’s Day, don’t discount the value of hand-made jewelry from your children. Take a trip to your local craft store (gasp!) and purchase the supplies necessary to make a necklace or pair of earrings. Whether using pasta or beads, we guarantee Mom will cherish her new jewelry forever.
