The Easter Bunny has come and gone, now for some Mother’s Day gift ideas. With Easter being late this year, there are a lot of folks that might be surprised to know that Mother’s Day in Orlando is just around the corner! So soon, in fact, that many sons, daughters, husbands and significant others are not ready for this special date. Are you?
Mother’s Day Gift Ideas
How will you honor the mother in your life this year? The #1 gift is giving flowers. While this is nice, it should be way down on your list of thoughtful ways to show your appreciation. Flowers are pretty but come on, they die! It’s not practical and most moms I know, really don’t WANT them for Mother’s Day. Plants are a little better, but at least offer to help water it every once in a while.
Then there are the gifts of candles and perfume. Nice smell, but just a way to make up for, or cover up the dirty laundry/odors Mom has to put up with each day.
If you’re giving her a technology product, make sure it is for HER. Don’t give her the fish finder you’ve been dreaming of, or the gaming system the kids have been begging for. Personally, I bought 3 iPods for my children years before someone was thoughtful enough to buy one just for me!
The spa/massage/pampering gifts are very nice; you’re getting warmer. Jewelry is great – if you can afford it and the selection matches her taste. Save the receipt in case she wants to exchange it. Chocolates and candy are nice – if Mom isn’t on a diet or weight conscious. If she is checking the scales, help her out by not placing these temptations near her.
Taking her out to dinner is an excellent Mother’s Day gift idea. Not only does it give her a break from kitchen duties at home, but she also gets to spend TIME with her loved ones, which is quite often what a mother really wants on Mother’s Day. Time that is spent honoring her, not forcing her to plan a meal, clean up, entertain, care for others, etc. Time when others are caring for her.
Mother’s Day Orlando Dinner Show
If you’d like to cover more than one traditional gift for mom this year, take her and the entire family out for dinner and a show – Capone’s Dinner & Show! Go ahead and get the kids up early and serve Mom breakfast in bed. (PLEASE clean up the kitchen before you let her see the mess you’ve made!) Print out the special Mother’s Day page Capone’s has online and insert it in her mother’s day card. Give it to her early in the day, so she knows that by late afternoon/early evening, you’ll have the kids all cleaned up and ready to go to the show.
Pick up any nearby friends and relatives on the way and get ready to have a blast! If taking her out to dinner is tradition, Capone’s has you covered. If taking her to a show is tradition, Capone’s has you covered! It’s fun for all ages, so the mother in your life doesn’t have to choose between an evening with adults or an evening with kids – everyone gets to enjoy dinner & a show!
