What Mom Really Wants

by Angela On May 7, 2008

Hourglass    Mother’s Day is this weekend and that means another trip to the card shop and to find just the right gift for one of the most important women in your life, Mom.  But what do Mom’s really want?  I belong to a “mom-trepreneur” group and work with many busy women who are mothers and one thing that comes up over and over again is time.  You heard me right, or should I say, you read that right, T-I-M-E!  They want time to spend with their children or husbands and not have to worry about cleaning the house.  They want time to go to a yoga class.  They want time to read a book or even a magazine article.  They want 60 minutes to watch the Oprah show for Pete’s sakes!   

So if you can’t give mom “time” for Mother’s day, then give her time off or some time for herself.  This can be in the form of a massage, a facial, a cleaning service for a month or even just a day.  Be creative and most importantly be thoughtful.  What would she love to do if she had time and how can you make that happen even if it’s only for a day?   

A gift that is a service rather than a physical object is fantastic because Mom can get what she wants and not end up with any additional clutter.  That may sound harsh, but it’s true.  I had one client tell me that she told her family that they were not allowed to buy her anything for Christmas because she did not want any more stuff.  I had a conversation with another client about ideas of what she could do for their children for Christmas that would not be physical stuff and toys.   

So what will you do for your mother this Mother’s Day?  Let us know if you have a great idea that we can share.  

Enjoy the good life,

Angela
