Mother’s Day Gift Advice: Think Experiences Instead of Things

While you’re looking for the perfect Mother’s Day gift, you might not realize the reality from her perspective—she doesn’t really want any things.

The good news is, very few want physical gifts.

Centers Health Care breaks down this recent study on what moms really want on their big day.

Quality Time With Their Children

Most senior moms (55%) say that they want the gift of time—spending quality time with their children and families is enough. And if other children or grandchildren can’t make it, be sure to call or use a video calling app like Zoom or Facetime to make it the next best thing to being there in person.

Food and Flowers

Flowers and food are also great gifts. Instead of traditional flowers that may only last a week, consider a potted plant or something that can be placed in a garden or windowsill that can be enjoyed for a longer period of time.

Nearly half (47%) of moms polled said they would be happy with a breakfast, lunch or dinner. To go the extra mile, if Mom lives alone, consider a subscription to a food-delivery service, so she can receive healthy meals delivered right to her door.

Do Things Together

You’re never too old to make memories together. If Mom likes to go out onto the water, look into lunch and dinner cruises if you live in an area close to a body of water. A trip to the park or a local farmers market is also a nice way to spend the day. And if your mother likes to be pampered, it’s tough to go wrong with a day at the spa or beauty salon.
