Mothers Day Ideas…even when she doesn’t need a thing; really!

by Susan Hamersky, California Concierge LLC
For Mother’s Day, finding the right gift – that lets her know how much she is appreciated and loved – can be a challenge.   So, to help out, we’ve got some meaningful  ideas sure to delight…even if she “doesn’t need a thing.”
(And if, like me, your mother is no longer with you, consider this to ease the gap:  celebrate another woman in your life who has meant a lot to you.)
spa dayPamper Her
Arrange for a mother/daughter day at the spa.  The mani/pedi, massage and facial are awesome, and spending a relaxing day with her daughter would be the best part.  Include her granddaughter(s) to make it an extra special Girls’ Day Out.
Thrill Her
Is she gung-ho for adventure?  You could book a hot air balloon ride, sky diving, Scuba lessons…or something a little more tame, but exciting nonetheless, like a whale-watching cruise.
Spoil Her
For any task she dreads, there’s probably a service that does just that.  Treat her to a month of no errands or grocery shopping (think California Concierge!)  Hire a chef to create a special meal in her own home.   And she won’t have to do the dishes!
Entertain Herpicnic wine
Schedule a day or evening of fun for Mom and Dad (or a friend)…a vineyard, a national park, museum, casino, the theater.  Include the transportation (limo, maybe?) so she can sit back and enjoy.
Lift Her
Here’s my favorite Mother’s Day idea:  In a card or letter, write specific things you appreciate about her or special memories you share.  Good words will make her heart glad and put a spring in her step.

California Concierge gives me the freedom to have fun in my down time. I use them for everything from booking tours for my visitors to weekly grocery shopping, errand running and overseeing home repair projects. They even delivered personal items to me from home when I was hospitalized and cleared the refrigerator of items that would spoil before my return. They are life savers.
