This May, prepare for the greatest Mother’s Day yet! We have cute gifts and delicious goodies to make Mother’s Day special without breaking the bank. After all, it’s mom who taught you how to save money. We hand-picked some of our favorite Mother’s Day gifts and incorporated them into experiences that mom will remember. Look for these items in stores the weeks of 5/2 and 5/9. If you’re the mom in the family, share this post with your spouse or children and hope they take the hint!

Breakfast in Bed: It’s not a new idea, but you can’t go wrong with this gesture. Mom is always on her feet, so let her sleep-in while the family brings her breakfast! Keep it fun and simple; kids will love making these four step peanut butter and jelly yogurt parfaits! Decorate your tray with the parfait, our Premium Mother’s Day Bouquet ($14.99) and a Mother’s Day Card filled with love. To encourage mom to lounge all day, give her Ballerina Slippers ($3.99) to unwrap with breakfast!

Spa Day: Rather than spend money on an expensive spa appointment, give mom a DIY spa day with beauty products like our Soap and Lotion Gift Set ($4.99). You already know mom glows inside-and-out, so help her feel her best with our Lacura Day Cream with SPF ($5.99), packed with skin-healthy vitamins. Save the most relaxing gift for last: a Huntington Home Luxury Scented Candle. Our candle is similar to the Jo Malone brand’s scented candle, but at $6.99 you’ll be able to buy yourself one, too! Alongside a bubble bath, mom will feel pampered and refreshed.
Cute Café: Spend quality time with mom by invoking a coffee shop atmosphere at home. Coffee shops can be loud and crowded, so invite her over instead. Making coffee at home is personal and allows you and mom plenty of time to talk. We carry a variety of coffee, including Barissimo Fair Trade Ground Coffee and Fair Trade Certified Whole Bean Single Origin Coffee. (For more information about our Fair Trade coffee, read our Earth Day post). If tea is more her style, treat her to assorted Benner Black or Green tea. Pour into a mug from our Mother’s Day Mug Set ($5.99) and add Choceur Individually Wrapped Chocolates ($2.79) to the table to compliment your drinks.

Chocolate Fondue: We can’t think of a better way to show mom you care than with chocolate. Melted chocolate is sure to make her happy! You don’t even need a fancy fondue pot. Simply melt our Moser Roth Dark Chocolate in a cast iron saucepan for a dreamy dessert. Buy fruit, Clancy’s Original Pretzel Slims and Baker’s Corner Marshmallows as dipping options. If your mom likes to pair wine with chocolate, give our seasonal Trestoria Rosé ($6.99) a try! It has strawberry, citrus and floral notes.
We hope you found these ideas inspirational, and we’d like to say “thank you” to moms for all that you do. Comment below with how you plan on celebrating the holiday!
