It’s almost that time of the year again! No, it’s not quite time to dust off the Christmas ornaments, but rather this Sunday marks our second-favorite day: Mother’s Day! Celebrate the most important person in your life (because she’s the one who gave it to you!) and do something special for mom. Here are some of our favorite things we like to do for mama bear:
You’ve been doing it since you were old enough to reach the stove. It’s a timeless classic. Mom loves breakfast, and mom loves bed. Why not combine the two? There’s a reason why serving your mum breakfast in bed in a cheesy cliché - it works! So break out the frying pan and get to work on those pancakes and eggs. Oh, and don’t forget to also bring her a fresh and healthy juice!
It's easy to take the cleanliness of the house for granted. But the reality is that the mom of the household is generally the one who spends the most time cleaning up messes, organizing the cabinets and closets, and generally keeping the house in shape. All this takes longer than you might think.
So what's the solution?
One option is a gift card for a natural home cleaning. Alternatively, you could buy mom a gift card for some AspenClean all-natural products. Whichever you choose, you'll be guaranteed to surprise and delight mother dearest.
What mother doesn’t like to get pampered? A spa day splurge is one of the best things you can give your mom for Mother's Day. Make sure she gets the full treatment - facial, manicure, maybe even a nice massage! Ensure that she comes out nice and refreshed - she deserves it! While she’s out, why not sneak in a natural home cleaning, so that she doesn’t have to worry about the chores once she gets home. You can spend a quality day out with mom in the knowledge that she’ll come home to a sparkling-clean house. Home already clean? No problem at all. Just send one of our gift certificates to her inbox, and we’ll come whenever she’d like a break.
If the thought of packing in with two hundred other people at a restaurant while trying to hold a conversation with your mama doesn’t appeal to you, we totally understand. Instead, consider taking mom on a nice picnic in the woods or local park. Pack a basket full of delicious, nutritious foods, maybe include a good bottle of wine, and set out on a leisurely stroll for the afternoon. You can both enjoy the fresh air, and take a break from a hectic life full of electronic distractions.
Despite our continued protests, Mother’s Day only comes around once a year. If we had it our way, every day would be in appreciation of our awesome moms!
But don’t think your obligations end once Sunday comes and goes - make sure mom is taken care of all year. Take the time out of your day to talk to her, and let her know just how much you appreciate her. Sometimes that’s all it takes to put a smile on mom’s face! Maybe you could offer to take over cooking duties every once in a while. You can also surprise her with some natural cleaning products made with organic essential oils, give her the occasional back rub, and always take the time to share a laugh and a smile with the most important person in your life.
