You’re racking your brain for the best Mother’s Day present ever.  The clock is ticking.  You’re stumped.  No worries, we’ve got some great ideas that will touch your mom’s heart and make you look like a hero in her eyes.  No kidding, these will add serious brownie points in your column … you know, just in case you have a sibling that you want to outshine this year.  

Spend some quality time with your mom
Spend the Day with Your Mom

1.  Spend Time Laughing and Having Fun With Mom

FREE.  Okay, maybe buy a meal or some snacks … but your presence is the real present.

Let’s face it, your mom likes you.  She wants to spend time with you.  She enjoys laughing with you and having fun with you.   Because you’re a busy grown up who is always focused on adulting nowadays, you probably haven’t made near enough time lately for a high-quality, carefree experience with your mom. 

So set aside a day … yes a day … to spend with your mom  (and, by the way, it doesn’t have to be ON Mother’s Day, just be sure she knows that’s your plan so she doesn’t feel forgotten).

Go to the park.  Go for ice cream.  Play a game.   Pull out the old photo books (which might be boxes of loose photos if your home is anything like mine), and awe over how cute you were as a child and how beautiful your mom looked then, and still looks now.

Sit outside on the deck, porch, lanai, or whatever outdoor space is handy and watch the sunset together.   Have a beautiful day with your beautiful mom.  She deserves it, and you’ll never regret it.

Written by the wise and ever-enchanting Christiane Northrup, this is truly a book that belongs on every woman’s book shelf.

“Taking all the right supplements and pills, or getting the right procedure done, isn’t the prescription for anti-aging,” Dr. Northrup explains. “Agelessness is all about vitality, the creative force that gives birth to new life.”

Goddesses Never Age offers practical tools and inspiration for bringing vibrancy into your life at any stage of life.
