Mindful Mother’s day – The Best Self-Care kit for your mom
Before starting with Mindful Mother’s day ideas for 2020, let me take you back to the same day of last year i-e 2019, ‘Mother’s day’ when I was so super desperate to find a perfect gift for my mom. I traveled across the entire city ( those days when we were actually allowed to roam and have fun) to grab something special for mother’s day.
I just feel so overwhelming seeing so many useful gift articles that I was unable to decide what to actually buy for her.
In the end, I brought her the flowers she adores and thought of asking her what she actually needed as a gift as that would spare me from the guilt of buying something she never wished to have.
I know, she would have accepted anything I give but I wanted the Mother’s day present of her choice.
So when I finally went to ask her about the gift, I was literally shocked by her response. She asked for nothing and rather said that she would love ‘A FREE DAY’ as mother’s day gift.
That was the exact moment when I realized how essential it becomes to have a ‘Mental Health day’ for mothers who never actually takes any break from the chaos of life.
Hence, I decided to write a detailed blogpost on celebrating mindful mother’s day this year and gift her exactly what she deserves.
Being in quarantine due to these uncertain times has made everyone’s life difficult especially of mothers and having a mental health day would be exactly something she would be secretly wishing for.
This year, I am going to gift her the present that will nourish her mental wellness bringing peace and calm.
Mindful Gifts for Mother’s Day 2020
Our moms deserve the best and I am going to list down all my favorite gift ideas that you can especially implement during this time of pandemic and yet make it a super special one.
Here are some invaluable mental health care or self-care gifts for the most amazing woman in your life.
1. Homemade gratitude jar
How about having a cute little jar for your mother with all the lovely notes of thankfulness! My mom especially loves it whenever I make her a thank-you card on Thanksgiving or any other festival.
Besides, handmade gifts have such an immense touch of love and belongingness. In the jar, maybe you can list everything that you love about your mom in cute, little notes and make her pick up one daily.
Here are some of my favorites if you are running out of time and need some quick affordable options.
2. Have an indoor SPA day
Gift your mom a spa day at home with a special handmade coupon and a lovely note. You can arrange everything that is needed for SPA at your home or just decorate the bathtub with the galaxy bubble along with some candles and the books that she always wanted to read but didn’t get time to.
This will relax her besides making her jump out of happiness. Here are some of my favorite spa products.
3. Help her organize her life with Simple Planner
Raise your hands if the planner saved your messy life and made you super productive. There are hundreds of new tasks to keep track of every day in mom’s life, how about gifting her some amazing planners to make her life super simple, easy peasy.
Note that these are my all-time favorite planners and they have so much of value with all the ebooks, checklists, courses, and what not!
4. Help her with home gardening
Who doesn’t love having plant babies at home? Like every mom loves having a small cute corner of her home dedicated especially to her green babies and this mother’s day is a great opportunity for you to help your mom set up her dream garden and let her cherish her evening coffee amidst the greenery. This one is indeed such a thoughtful and mindful mother’s day gift plan.
Creating a home garden is not at all tedious when you have this super bundle with you for all your doubts.
5. Gift her the Art of Journaling
I cannot stress enough how journaling helped me during the most difficult period of my life. This art of journaling came to me as a blessing, a miracle and I then thought of giving my mother this mindful creativity on this special day.
6. You guessed it right – BOOKS
How on the entire earth can someone not love the books? My mom is so fond of books that if you take her to the library, she would probably never return.
I always love this idea of gifting mindful books on special occasions just like mother’s day. If your mom is fond of Audiobooks, get her the annual subscription of audible.
I bet you, it’s so amazing to listen and fall asleep.
Here are some of my favorite mental health books.
Here are my favorite self-discovery books.
7. Candlelight dinner
How about having a candlelight dinner on the terrace with your mom with your home-cooked food? Mothers love it when we cook for them and they actually deserve this break.
Grab her favorite recipe and cook something delicious.
It doesn’t have to be something huge or grand just something from the heart.
8. Spend quality time with her
If by any chance, you are not able to plan out or so something special for your wonderful mom on mother’s day then pick this up and spend quality time with her.
Talk about old memories when you were a child or share some recent updates or just take a quick quiz on how much you know each other.
Trust me, your mom needs your undivided attention and your time. Shuffle your old photo albums and I am sure your mother will have so many stories to tell you behind every photograph. Hang out with your mom just as you would do with your friends.
9. Handwritten notes on why you love her
I totally am an old school type and letters are something that I love the most. Actually, who won’t love handwritten letters from their child?
This indeed is such a thoughtful gift at such a low budget. You just have to get a card or can even make one at home.
Find a cute poem and write your feeling on those sheets. She is going to love this idea.
I really hope that you find something useful from the above list and make this mother’s day super special for your mom and yourself too. It is indeed difficult to be a mom and I am so very grateful for all the mothers out there. May this day be the best one ever.
