Your mom has put up with a lot over the years. (Hell, she carried you in her womb for nine months.) And while flowers and cards are thoughtful and lovely, we know you’re more creative than that. This year, show mom how much you love her with a unique gift that’s all about the experience.
8 Ways to Spoil Mom
You owe her...big-time
A Plane Ticket
There’s nothing your mom loves more than well, you (awww). So treat her to a plane ticket to come visit!
A Cooking Class
Whether she’s the next Julia Child or the queen of takeout, she’s still got something to learn. Sur la Table and Williams-Sonoma offer classes like pizza making and sushi rolling, nationwide.
A Local Museum Membership
Treat your mother to 365 days of art and culture with a yearly membership for two. (Note: This means you get to go with her to that Matisse retrospective.)
A Byob Painting Class
Help your mom channel her inner Picasso by setting her up with a paintbrush, an easel and a bottle of her favorite wine.
Nobody likes scrubbing a bathtub. Surprise mom with a housekeeper credit that she can use the next time she’s feeling overwhelmed. Whenever she needs help cleaning the house, watering the plants or doing the laundry, she'll thank you for giving her the afternoon off.
