Mother’s Day Gift Ideas 2016
Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 8th., (yes, that’s this coming Sunday) and by Friday most of us — who are fortunate enough to be blessed with our Mom (still) with us—-will be thinking about what to do for Mom or at least planning on what ‘special’ to do or give to “Mom” or to that special someone in your life who is a Mom, or acts as a ‘Mom’ to you or someone else.
Of course, all Mom’s are different and unique with all sorts of individual tastes and styles—yet, I’ve done some of the work for you with particular ‘gift ideas’ associated with your Mom’s particular birthday and zodiac sign—that her special day falls within. Should you decide to gift your Mom or that special someone who is a “Mom” —with a below gift idea, I am certain you’ll be pleasantly surprised by how much she will just ‘love it’ and ‘love you’ too… for thinking of her in such a special way on her very special day.
EXPENSIVE and exciting are two buzz words when it comes to gifting your Mars ruled Mom! Don’t waste time on non-sense trinket stuff, make it big, fun and exciting. A gift certificate to her favorite boutique, or tickets to see her favorite band or live show will certainly light up her world and her mommy life, she’ll be ecstatic too, if you join her at one of these events.
Scrumptious, beautifully well presented FOOD is on the agenda for your Venus ruled Mom! A gorgeous brunch or dinner at her favorite restaurant with music, beautiful flowers, delicious delectable desserts and of course presenting her with a beautifully wrapped gift of her favorite perfume or a gift certificate for a ‘SPA-Day’ will rock your Mom’s special day with delight.
Your Intellectually stimulated Mercury ruled Mom will hug you to the moon and back with Books, books and more books. The latest title from your mom’s favorite author or a book you choose for her as a keepsake from you—-either way you’ll delight her and she’ll think about you, smiling, every time she picks it up to read or sees it on her bookshelf. Your Gemini mom will also appreciate specially penned cards and original quotes, from YOU!
Your Traditional house-loving Mom will adore anything you choose that reminds her of family and the past. She is notorious for being fond of and collecting heirlooms, dishes, vintage jewelry. Think ‘the more the merrier’ when it comes to family gatherings. Surprise her by inviting (distant) close family and friends to a Mother’s Day Dinner that you cater or prepare for her, and make sure there are plenty of fresh cut flowers at her table.
Your bright sunny …ooh so passionately creative Sun ruled Mom will shine ‘like the sun’ with anything you create or make for her with your own hands; the more original the better. She delights in one of a kind type ideas, especially bright ‘Art work’ that she can display in her home from her favorite or local artist. She loves wearable art and coupled with her favorite gift of music—-WOW!! Rock her world this mother’s day with an ITUNES gift card.
Your beautiful —Oh so practical, yet, versatile sweet mom will enjoy that you considered her kitchen needs for ease!! The latest kitchen gadget or appliance with all the bells and whistles in the area of cooking that she enjoys most, will have her eyes batting feverishly. She will adore you thinking of her special culinary needs and routine, and of course, anything to help her stay organized will be a hit!
Pamper your Venus ruled Mom by planning something special that is all about her, such as a dinner, party or event where she is able to enjoy her favorite foods, music and friends. Present her with a bouquet of roses or her favorite flowers and tickets to a wildly romantic movie featuring her favorite actors. She’ll also enjoy a special Mother’s Day card written by you.
Think EO’s or Essential Oils as a way to get your Plutonian Mom worked up into a bubble of babbling bursting fun!! She is a bit of a botanical freak and will love unique plants and flowers and simply anything relative to nature; water and natural resource remedies concoctions and potions. She’ll appreciate indulging her senses in aroma therapeutic oils and bath products that provide mind, body and soul healing. A SPA gift certificate? I think SO!!
Movies, shows, parties and shopping sprees!! Anything you choose will be well received with utter JOY and gratitude. It’s hard to displease (unless you just forget about her—-yikes!!) your Jupiter ruled “Dr. Feelgood” Mom. She is a burst of Sunshine most days with a wit, charm and grace that will steal the show at any gathering. Plan a special brunch with a distant friend or family member she has not seen in awhile. She will be flattered and you’ll make a memorable impression that she’ll remember forever!
Your hardworking Saturn ruled Mom is all about honor, grace and recognition. Surprise her with your genuine devotion by gifting her a book of poetry relative to your feelings of Love and Appreciation. She will glow in the dark when presented with a collection of fine stemware. Crystal, of course—champagne and wine glasses, etc., along with a gift certificate to her favorite wine and cheese store will have her eyes twinkling. Remember to pen your own Mother’s Day card, she’ll be dazzled (and take the credit) for your classic good form.
Your premier attention by offering up accolades to you Uranus ruled Mom will have her feeling loved and adored all day long. She is about ‘words of affirmation’ and the more the better. Consider doing a tribute to Mom video from and OF you, of course, and send to your Mom’s smart phone. She will look at it constantly and show all her friends, and probably post it on FB and even in the front yard if she can find a way…one thing for sure, she’ll keep it forever. Oh and to really dazzle her delights, a funny card and gift certificate with your selfie video will truly make her day complete!
Your ‘live in fantasy world’ Neptune ruled Mom is all about ‘exactly that’ FANTASY!! Take her to a magic show or better yet, learn how to perform magic or card tricks ‘just for her’. Enlighten her mood allowing her to know how much she is loved by gifting her something soft and luxurious, a beautiful plush throw for her sofa or bed and accent pillows to match. She’ll also love joining you at the movies for a tear jerker or something over the top sentimental. Your Mom will adore anything otherworldly or uniquely created just for her. A fun gift certificate for an Astrological or Psychic reading is always welcomed.
Happy Mother’s Day!!
