Husbands and fathers, we know you are busy mowing lawns, kissing babies and bringing home the bacon. The last thing your manly mind wants to fret over is what to get us for Mother’s Day.
To make it easier on you, and ensure that we don’t get a fry pan and a morning full of holding back tears, here are some gifting hints:
You know, the ones you owe us but tried to get out of by saying it was just some celebrity trend. Nope, we know real women who have gotten beautiful baubles – namely diamonds – and we’re envious.
A Play Day
Time, precious time, to scrapbook, organize closets, go for a hike, or out for coffee with our gal pals is what we truly crave. If you take the kids and go somewhere distant, leaving us to our own devices, we will be deeply grateful.
It may be cliché, but no woman is going to turn down a day at the spa. Sign us up for the four-handed massage, a wrap that guarantees to melt off 10 lbs., and the paraffin dip pedicure.
Show us the countless ways you love us at the beginning of the day. Take over kid duty so we can sleep in, cook us breakfast, write us a love note on the bathroom mirror, and send in the tiny troops to shower us with hugs and kisses.
