The REAL Mother's Day Wishlist: 7 Things Moms Actually Want
Mother's Day is just around the corner, and we know you deserve the best. But let's be honest, sometimes our partners need a little nudge in the right direction. So, we at Plum + Sparrow decided to do a little investigating and asked over 20,000 women what they really want for Mother's Day. You can thank us later. 😄 Feel free to "accidentally" leave this open on the family computer or text it to your partner 😉
Out of ALL the answers we received, here were the top 7 most common answers:
1. A Spa Day:
By far the most common answer, moms are practically shouting for a day to relax and rejuvenate at a spa. Massages, facials, mani-pedis, and more – moms need some serious pampering! Pro tip: Don't just give her a spa voucher; take care of the kids and chores while she's away so she can truly enjoy her day of indulgence.
For an extra touch, surprise her with the spa voucher hidden in a Plum + Sparrow organizer bag with some perfume and her favorite candy. 🎁
2. To Feel Appreciated:
Let's be real, the bar is pretty low here. Moms just want to feel like someone cares! Sometimes, a simple "thank you" or "I appreciate you" goes a long way. This Mother's Day, make an extra effort to show her how much she means to you and the family. Write a heartfelt card, cook her favorite meal, or even create a DIY appreciation jar filled with little notes of gratitude.
How about the gift of sleep? It's free, easy to give, and would be SUPER appreciated. Take over the morning routine, let her sleep in, or arrange a nap time for her. Take the kids out so it’s silent. Trust us, she'll be singing your praises.
To keep the better sleep coming even after Mother's Day is over, consider gifting a Plum + Sparrow Moses basket and bassinet stand to keep the baby sleeping longer. Because when baby sleeps better, so does mama. 💤
A change of scenery works wonders for the soul, and moms definitely deserve a break. It doesn't have to be a luxurious trip to Paris (although we're sure she wouldn't mind that); a weekend getaway or a staycation will do the trick. Just make sure it's something she'll love, and don't forget to take care of all the planning and packing.
5. Quality Time with Family:
Moms cherish those precious moments with their loved ones. Organize a family picnic, photoshoot, or movie marathon. The key here is to spend quality time together without the distractions of everyday life. Bonus points if you can keep the kids from yelling “MOM MOM MOM” for a couple of hours.
P.S. Plum + Sparrow Moses baskets are designed to make quality family time possible WHEREVER. You can easily take the baby out on-the-go or place them in the basket next to you anywhere in the house. Meaning you get quality time wherever you are! 🌳
6. A Day without Chores:
Nothing will make a mom more mad than having to do dishes on mother’s day. Step up and do her chores for her! Not only will it give her a much-needed break, but you’ll probably gain a lot more appreciation for all that she does.
But whatever you do, don’t let the chores go un-done! If you aren’t prepared to do them on your own, hire out a cleaning service for the day. Not doing the chores she usually does just means she’ll have to do them the next day.
Last but not least, you can never go wrong with a little sparkle. Earrings, necklaces, or bracelets – anything that shows you put thought into the gift will make her feel special. Just remember, it doesn't have to be extravagant! Sentimental or personalized pieces from brands like Made by Mary or Jays and Jewels will be cherished just as much (or more!) 💍
So there you have it, the ultimate Mother's Day wishlist, straight from the source. Keep this list handy and give your partner a little nudge to make your day unforgettable. After all, you deserve it! 😊 And remember, moms, don't hesitate to "accidentally" pass this along to your partners as Mother's Day sneaks up and they ask, "What do you want for Mother's Day?" 😉
