Today’s modern mom is a busy woman. Moms are not only CEO of the household nowadays. They are often CEOs of major corporations as well. Modern moms have to do it all. They hold down a 9-5, taxi the kids to soccer practice and ballet lessons, cook, clean, doctor ouchies, and everything else that comes along with being a parent. When it comes time for mom‘s birthday, she deserves something special. Below are a few birthday gift ideas that a busy mom is sure to enjoy.
Maid Service- Whether you hire a service or have the whole gang pitch in to do some heavy scrubbing, mom will surely appreciate a nice, clean house on her birthday. Be sure to do some deep cleaning so she won’t have to do it later.
Daily Planner- With everything that mom is responsible for, it would be nice to have a place to write everything down so she doesn’t risk forgetting something. Daily planners can be purchased rather inexpensively at your local department store. Make the gift special by writing in important dates to remember such as birthdays, anniversaries, etc. Include a beautiful pen to make the gift extra special.
Errand Service- Many errand services offer gift certificates for people to use at their convenience. Let mom off the hook by giving her a gift that she can use in a pinch. She will surely appreciate not having to run suits to the cleaners or picking up groceries for dinner a couple days a month!
Spa Day- Who doesn’t love to be pampered? Moms are no exception! Give mom a day at a spa where she can get her favorite treatments done, such as a massage, manicure, pedicure, new hair cut and color. She will come home feeling like a new woman and in a great mood!
Movies By Mail- Just because moms are busy, doesn’t mean they don’t like to curl up to a good romantic comedy every now and then. A subscription to a movie by mail service is just the thing for busy moms. Since these services don’t usually charge late fees, mom can order and watch movies at her convenience without having to rush to the movie store to return them on time.
Dinner and Cake- Surprise mom on her birthday by having a nice dinner made for her when she gets home. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy. A nice spaghetti dinner or an easy cassarole will do. When mom sees that she doesn’t have to make dinner for the night, she will love anything that is put in front of her! End the meal by lighting candles on a homemade birthday cake and singing, “Happy Birthday”. Mom will be in heaven!
It doesn’t take much to please mom. As long as she knows that she is thought of with love and appreciation, she is usually happy. Of course, she probably wouldn‘t frown on breakfast in bed on her birthday along with a thoughtful gift or two!
