5 Unique Mother's Day Gifts
By Lisa Eclesworth
You all make the mothers in your lives feel special when Mother's Day is around the corner. Most gifts feel cliche and overdone as the years go by, and what you're looking for is something special, something unique for a particular person. But what is considered unusual?
Let's take a look at five unique gifts that all mothers would love for their special day.
1. A Spa treatment
This gift is to make her know that you see how hard she works to make the entire family feel special and take care of them. Mother's day is the day you want her to relax and carefree. The bill is, of course, on you. But if you can't afford it then don't kill yourself with worry, you can do it on your own.
Put her feet up and give them all the pampering she deserves. Put a bowl of berries at her side and a glass of her favorite wine before giving her a massage. A little facial treatment, manicure, and pedicure are enough to make her feel like a queen.
2. A short film
Right now, you probably think that that's so far-fetched. But if you want to nail this, you have to go out of your way and do something that you usually wouldn't do for anyone. The film doesn't have to be of super high quality or professionally done. Remember, it's about giving her something that money can't buy. The goal isn't monetary value but emotional value.
Get the family together and shoot a short film where each gives the most priceless memory that mum did for them. Let them share those memories and combine them into a cool homemade video. The experiences have to be something they will never forget, something that was out of this world. When you give her the video to watch, you can also present her with a personalized photo mug and fill it with her favorite coffee or tea for her to enjoy as she watches the video. Your mother will see the appreciation in your eyes and those stories, and she will flip with excitement. Or do a memory slide.
3. A helicopter tour of her favorite spots in town
Give her an aerial adventure surprise by booking a tour with a helicopter. This tour is one of the most thrilling experiences that she will have ever experienced, of course, apart from giving birth to you. Everything looks better from up there, and she will have the best time of her life.
Helicopter Tours might be just what she needs after all the work she's doing in bringing you guys up. She needs all the fun she can get on this day. Remember, a mother's work is never over, and she probably doesn't get that much time to have fun or go on an adventure.
4. Get her a new car
She probably still has that broken piece of junk that she used to drive you to and from football games or ballet rehearsals. So, why not get her a new one that spells, 'World's Coolest Mum'? She deserves it. She might still cling to her old bug, but it won't hurt to give her a remodeling if that's the case. Just take that old car and make it look new and refreshing. That ought to make her feel special.
5. Celebrity makes a surprise pop up visit
Everyone has a celebrity crush, including your mother. If you're able to, why not invite one over to make her day. The celebrity doesn't even have to be physically there, Facetime them with your mum. That's what technology brings to the table. Your mother will go nuts with excitement. There's no way she can forget that.
It's all about making the experience personal and exclusive. Something the mother won't quickly recover. If it's a song she likes, play that for her and make her sing-along before the celebrity pops up out of nowhere and serenades her. What better gift could she ask for on that day?
Well, get to it then. A unique gift is one that has more sentimental value than cash value. Everyone is different. Look at what aspect of life revitalizes them and makes them see life in a different, livelier way. The gift should give her the same effect caffeine has on a hangover. If it's shopping that re-energizes her, give her that if it's adventure, join her in one.
