Looking for the right gift for your mom on Mother’s Day? Often, the perfect gift is the one that gives her more time with you. Give your mom the gift of a good time this year and you can create memories for the years to come. Here are some ways you can treat your mom to a memorable Mother’s Day and some apps that can help you plan it.
1. A Nice Meal
Brunch is a Mother’s Day staple for many, so be sure to book your reservation as early as possible! The quintessential reservation app is OpenTable. On the app, you can search by cuisine and area and also read reviews and view menus. OpenTable even has a section with restaurants that are featuring specials for Mother’s Day.
2. Great Memories
There’s a reason many moms still carry around printed photos—they want to see their kids’ and grandkids’ smiling faces without jumping through technological hoops. Now, you can make it even easier with tools like Artifact Uprising, which allows you to create a variety of photo books and other photo gifts using your own pictures or those from social media.
If you are able to celebrate with your mom on Sunday, consider having fun with the Foldify app. Create unique foldable paper objects that print through your computer using pictures of your family. You can create a photo cube or a paper car with your faces inside. It’s a fun way to get your kids involved in creating a homemade gift.
3. A Little Relaxation
All moms can use a little relaxation in their lives. Soothe is an app that can book in-home massage therapists so that your mom doesn’t have to leave the house to have a relaxing day. The app can help you find in-home therapists in 51 cities and areas across the U.S. Book a therapist appointment or give a gift card and let your mom decide when she wants to schedule. Zeel, a similar app that allows you to book a massage therapist within 60 minutes, is also available in 64 different cities and areas across the U.S.
4. Family Experiences
At the end of the day, your mom would probably say the best gift is an experience with her family. Find ideas for concerts, plays. and other special events with Eventbrite. This app provides you with ideas for what to do and also allows you to buy and store tickets and RSVPs within the interface. Groupon is another great app for finding ideas, deals, and specials on events in your area. On the things to do section of the site, you can find everything from unique city tours, to wine and painting nights and bowling competitions. No matter what interests you and your family, you’ll probably be able to find a special.
It can be challenging to find the right gifts to express how much love and gratitude we have for our moms. That’s why one of the greatest gifts you can give your mom on Mother’s Day is your time.
