We all want to give our moms the best gift possible for Valentine’s Day. She does so much for us that we want to somehow find a gift that thanks her for all her hard work. The problem is many of us fall back on the same gifts repeatedly, which can be very disappointing for mom.
Therefore, as a mom myself, I am going to tell you some gifts to avoid purchasing for moms this Valentine’s Day.
Picking up a giant box of drugstore candy is not a great gift for a busy mom. Most likely, the kids will take over the chocolate, leaving mom without her gift.
Busy moms do not often wear a lot of jewelry, especially if they have babies dangling around their neck, tugging it off.
Flowers are a great gift, but not for Valentine’s Day. The fact that they are expensive is a huge factor for families with small kids. A better alternative is to surprise her with flowers the week before the holiday.
While a cute gift for young couples and children, your Mom is neither and deserves a better, gift than yet another stuffed animal in a house that is most likely full of them.
While Mom would love to have a night out with her hubby, on Valentine’s Day the restaurants are over-crowded and over-priced. This does not add up to a romantic and fun night out. If you want to truly give Mom a night out, then plan something before or after Valentine’s Day so she can really enjoy a relaxing evening.
Valentine’s Day is about showing the person you love how much you love them. You want to be able to give Mom the gift she deserves! Gifts handmade by the kids are a great choice that Mom will treasure for years. Another idea is to give her a gift of a spa day. This can be inexpensive and perfect for a Mom who never has time for herself.
There are plenty of choices when it comes to giving Mom the “right” Valentine’s gift, you simply have to spend some time thinking about it instead of rushing to the nearest drugstore. So this Valentine’s Day, give your Mom a gift that really shows how much you love and appreciate her.
For all you moms out there what gifts are you hoping not to receive this Valentine’s Day?
