Gifts for Mom to Pamper Her

Moms work hard, whether they work out of the home or spend their days raising children, cleaning the house, gardening, and volunteering. They deserve to be pampered occasionally, and getting gifts for Mom for no reason at all can be an act of love that sheíll remember for a long time. You donít have to spend a lot of money, just a bit of time considering what your mom would truly appreciate.

Many moms enjoy flowers and plants, and a new plant in a cute holder might be just the thing to brighten up her living room or bedroom. Plants for the garden or for a planter on the porch are also a good idea, whether itís tulips in the spring, sunflowers in the summer, or mums in the fall. Perennials will come back each year and will remind her of you for years to come. A brightly colored plant in the middle of the winter can help perk up her mood and remind her that spring is just around the corner.

Scented candles and potpourri can pamper her through her sense of smell. Keep in mind her scent preferences. If she has no strong likes or dislikes, buy for the season: cinnamon or pine in the winter, a light floral scent for the spring, a clean soapy smell for summer, and baking scents for the fall.

Coffee- and tea-lovers might love receiving an impromptu gift of coffee beans or a new type of tea. A coffee grinder would also be a good idea, if mom does not have one already. A tea strainer would be appropriate for tea drinkers, as this opens up the possibility of using loose tea leaves instead of only teabags. A new mug can also be a good gift for hot beverage drinkers.

Bubble bath is popular, as many moms relax in a hot bath in the evenings. If your mom prefers showers, scented shower gel and perhaps a new mesh shower puff would be a better option. Many times you can also buy matching scented body lotion, powder, and body spray to go along with any shower gel or bubble bath fragrance.

For just a few dollars and a little bit of time shopping, you can pamper your mom and give her the gift of time for herself, even if itís only for a few minutes.
