As Mother’s Day quickly approaches, a burning question sits in the minds of daughters and sons everywhere: what do you get for the woman who has given you life?
The answer is actually quite simple. More often than not, your mother will be grateful for the mere fact that you were thinking of her on that day. But occasionally it is nice to go the extra mile and give her something that she will truly appreciate and remember for years to come.
Fresh out of ideas? Check out our tips for the perfect Mother’s Day gift for some inspiration.
Find out what she likes
This tip, although obvious, is often overlooked. Some people are quick to buy a standard, below par Mother’s Day gift, such as flowers or chocolate. Although this makes for an easy way to cross this seemingly daunting task off your to-do list, you can probably expect a lackluster response from your equally lackluster gifting efforts. Instead of settling for the expected, why not go above and beyond by finding out exactly what your mom likes.
Take a second to observe how your mom spends her time. Is she is trying to eat better, get more in shape, or create new habits? You can take this information and use it to buy a gift that will be truly valuable and useful to her.
Give her your time
If you are struggling to pinpoint the perfect, personalized gift for your mother dearest, then considering gifting your time to her as an alternative. It is a no brainer that your mom in your life will genuinely appreciate you taking time of your day to spend a few hours with her.
You can take her out to brunch, visit and museum, take a bike ride, or even spend the day at Youfit getting summer ready! In honor of Mother’s Day, you can bring your mom to any YouGX class on Mother’s Day Weekend (Saturday, May 7th through Sunday, May 8th) and the both of you will be eligible to take any class on the schedule, free of charge.
Another great way to show your mother you love her is by pampering her. Take her out to get her nails done, or make her an appointment for a massage so she can alleviate any stress or tension she may have. A mom can never say no to a decent back massage, even if you’re just utilizing the YouTime massage beds available at select Youfit locations.
What gift is better than the gift of health? With a Lime Card membership, your mother will have unlimited access to any of our facilities, YouGX classes, and half-priced drinks. The Lime Card membership means she will have guest privileges, so you can join her whenever you want. Show your love and admiration to your mom in a way that she can truly appreciate, by helping her become the best she can be- mentally and physically.
