Is It Time To Plan A Mother's Day Gift For Your Wife?

Check out the calendar and you'll see that Mother's Day is on Sunday, May 12th this year. That means that you have plenty of time to shop, doesn't it? But when you consider your busy life, you might realize that it would be best to get your shopping done now so you'll be ready when Mother's Day arrives. From buying your wife a special gift to arranging for massage therapy, here are some ideas that might help you plan a special day for your sweetheart.

A Special Gift: Have you been frustrated in the past when your wife has returned gifts you picked out for her? Maybe an outfit was the wrong size or maybe you bought her a black leather handbag only to realize she already has one she won't part with. This year, consider giving your wife an intangible gift instead of a tangible one.

For example, consider giving her a trip that you can go on together. If money is tight or if time is short, even a bed-and-breakfast stay in a nearby town would be a fun weekend gift, wouldn't it? If you have the time and the money, consider giving your wife a more elaborate traveling gift. For example, a cruise or a trip to a beach she's never been to might be the perfect present.

A ​Massage Therapy Gift: Another idea for an intangible gift for your wife's Mother's Day gift would be a gift card to a massage therapist. If your wife has had massages in the past, she will already know how wonderful your gift is. If she has never been to a massage therapist before, she is in for a lovely experience.

Depending on how much money you can spend, consider either a one-time trip or a monthly trip to a massage parlor in your area. Do you want her to experience something like a hot stone massage? If so, let the person who makes reservations know that ahead of time. If you haven't considered going in for a couple's massage, this might make your wife's massage therapy gift even more special to her.

Either way, your wife will be treated like a queen. The massage therapist will have the training and the experience to relax your wife and help her to forget the cares of daily living. Essential oils like lavender or coconut oil will be part of the massage. 

If you have included a gratuity when you purchased the gift card, be sure to let your wife know that you have done that. For more information about add-ons for your wife's massage, speak to a therapist at a massage center, such as Khamo Foot and Body Massage.
