The key to finding the perfect gift for Mother’s Day is to surprise your wife with something she normally wouldn’t buy herself. If you need a little inspiration I’ve put together 10 gift ideas for that special woman in your life.
2. Date Night
Plan a night on the town and get a sitter for the kids and order in their favorite takeout. Start the night off by surprising her with flowers and take her to her favorite restaurant, or maybe she prefers going out for appetizers and then heading to the movie theatre. Whatever you decide to do she’ll be happy she doesn’t have to cook.
3. Coloring Book
This might sound boring but if your wife needs time to focus on herself and relax she’ll love a coloring book and pencil crayons. Coloring has the potential of lowering stress and anxiety plus gives her time to unwind at the end of the day.

4. Spa Products or a Spa Day
Depending on your budget, spa products or a spa day could be an excellent present. Being a mom is stressful and it becomes all about the kids. If your wife could do with some much needed ‘me’ time, the spa products are an excellent choice.
If you can afford it, spring for a spa gift card it would be better and more relaxing for her.
5. Personalized Gift
6. Live Plants or Flowers For the Home
If she loves gardening but doesn’t get much time to do it these days, an indoor plant is a great gift. Requiring very little maintenance, a plant will brighten up the home and gives her something small to tend to.
Take it one step further and get the kids to paint a few terracotta pots and make a cute little succulent garden just for her.
7. Home Décor
It can be something as simple as a new canvas of her favorite family photo or a shadow box you work on with the kids full of memories. If you want to splurge and spoil her you could order a mattress, because who doesn’t want a good night sleep.

9. Wine and Chocolates
If your wife likes to unwind with a glass of wine every now and then why not buy her favorite bottle of wine with a box of chocolates. Not only is this a gift she’ll love but she might even share with you!

10. Favorite Team Apparel
If all else fails, take a peek at her Amazon wishlist or get the kids to do a little investigative work for you.
All that’s left to do is purchase a gift, wrap it up and surprise her! It is the thought that counts so if you can personalize it with a little note or get something she’s been talking about for awhile you’ll win brownie points for sure!
