Most mothers, even if they thrive on staying busy and being active, cherish the rare times they’re able to completely relax. That’s why, this Mother’s Day, one of the best gifts you can get for your wife is something that will allow her to take a load off (without the possibility of being interrupted by the kids’ disputes or other responsibilities). Here are a few great ideas for relaxing Mother’s Day gifts your wife will cherish:

Spa Services

Nothing says “relax” like a day at the spa, so pick up a gift certificate for some of your wife’s favorite spa or salon services – you know, the kind of stuff she’d never buy for herself. Spoil her with a full-body massage, manicure and pedicure, hair service, facial or anything else you think she’ll enjoy. Tell her to turn off her phone and enjoy herself while you take care of the kids at home.

A Date Night

While on Mother’s Day your sweetheart will likely want to spend time with the whole family, plan a date night for the following weekend and give your wife an IOU gift certificate. Take care of everything from planning on child care to making reservations, and then go out and let yourselves enjoy each other’s company, sans kids. For an extra special touch, pick up a bouquet to present to her before you leave for dinner. It’ll remind you both of the romantic dates you had before you were married.

A Yoga Package

If your active wife loves to relax by doing yoga, a very thoughtful present for her may be a membership to a studio or nearby class. Not only is this something she can get a lot of use out of, but it will also provide lasting relaxation benefits!

A Night with the Ladies

Has it been a while since your partner was able to let loose with her friends and have some fun? If so, set up a night for her to go out with her friends while you take care of the kiddos at home for the evening. You can even buy her a fun pair of earrings or a new necklace she can wear during her night out with the girls.

A Relaxing Gift Basket

Your beloved doesn’t have to leave the house to relax! Set her up with a relaxing gift basket full of goodies she can use to de-stress at home! Fill it up with some bath salts, aromatherapy candles, a new terry cloth robe and whatever else you know she’ll love. Include a new book or an e-reader she can take into the bath and unwind with for a couple of hours.

No matter what you buy your wife for Mother’s Day, sending her a bouquet of her favorite blooms is a perfect extra touch that will put a smile on her face. We love the Artful Elegance Bouquet that features white asiatic lilies along with roses, alstroemeria and stock in shades of purple. Send the arrangement of your choice to her office the Friday before or have it delivered to the house so she can display them all weekend!
