Oh My Goodness - It’s Almost Mother’s Day And You Didn’t Make Plans!

It happens every year: you think you have time to get mom a thoughtful present or plan a fun day out, and then BOOM––it’s the second Sunday of May.

We get it––after all, this blog post should have been posted a week ago––but life happens, and all you can do now is take our advice so you’re still able to give your mom an amazing day!

This year, do yourself or your own mom a favor and avoid the stress that goes along with hectic last-minute plans and large Mother’s Day crowds by simply relaxing and dedicating the day to doing some of your favorite activities at home!

Have breakfast in bed

Eggs scrambled or poached? Blueberry waffles or banana pancakes? Coffee or orange juice? Any way you like it, you can skip the diner lines and have the best Mother’s day breakfast, complete with the cutest serving tray and your own bed.

Try some of our favorite recipes:

Bacon & Egg Muffins

Waffles with Berry Compote

Create your own spa day

Facials, massages, manicures, pedicures—does it get any better than that?

Make for your own spa day with the kids and introduce them to DIY face masks, refreshing candles, and spring-ey pastel-colored nail polish. Even snag a bomb organic cotton robe for yourself to relax in throughout the day!

Try these homemade face masks:

Honey Face Mask

Oatmeal Avocado Face Mask

Organize a movie night

Because sometimes the best gift you can give or receive is to do nothing at all. Catch some relaxing time with your kids or your mom with comforting film favorites you both share. Don’t forget to grab a comfy blanket and melt extra butter for your popcorn.

Our favorite family flicks:

The Incredibles 2

Coco

Our favorite rom coms:

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before

Mix up a new drink or an old favorite after the kids go to bed!

A tried and true method of relaxation is achieved by adding a little gin to your juice, and you know mom’s favorite drink better than anyone. Whether you serve up a pitcher of moscow mules or add some mimosas to your brunch menu, our Luxe Bubblies Sugar Sets will serve as the perfect gift to mom on her special day. Just drop a cube in to your vodka, whiskey, or champagne and it creates a mixologist’s dream!

The best moments are the ones we share together when we have nothing on our minds. Give your mom (or yourself!) a relaxing day. Happy Mother’s Day!
