The #1 Gift Moms REALLY Want For Mother's Day

Mother's Day is just around the corner, and if you're like most people, you're probably wondering what to get the mom in your life.

Flowers? A card? A gift card to her favorite store? While those are all lovely options, let's be real - what moms REALLY want for Mother's Day is a break.

She wants a break from all the obligations she carries! AND...she wants to feel acknowledged and appreciated for how she puts the priorities of the family first, even above her own self-care. 

This isn’t a good thing…that’s why she needs you to carve out time for her to rest and restore herself. A happy mom is a healthy mom.

As a working mom (and ALL moms are working moms), it's like she’s expected to be a superhero who can juggle a career, kids, and a household all at once. But let's be real, even Wonder Woman needs a break sometimes.

Yep...that's right, she really wants a break. Moms are the ultimate multitaskers, juggling work, kids, housework, and everything in between. So, on Mother's Day, all she wants is a day (or even just a few hours) to relax and do whatever she wants.

Maybe that means sleeping in without any interruptions, binge-watching her favorite show, or reading a book uninterrupted. Maybe it means getting a massage or a pedicure or taking a long, hot bath. Whatever it is, just let her do it without any guilt trips or interruptions.

You want to hear her say to you…

…“OMG, pinch me…I had plenty of time for myself today. I got to drink my Oat Milk Latte HOT and read several chapters of a book I’ve wanted to dive into! Thank you! You really understand how overwhelmed I feel.”

And if you really want to make her day, add a few thoughtful touches. 

  • Cook her favorite meal
  • Write her a heartfelt note
  • Clean up the house without being asked
  • Seriously…let her sleep in, or all day if she wants. Sleep is a huge luxury for moms

Trust me, what seems like little things will mean more to her than any material gift.

So this Mother's Day, give the mom in your life the gift she really wants - a break. And who knows, it might even be the start of a new tradition.

Remember, a happy mom is a healthy mom,


Ps...most moms kinda fail around setting boundaries. It's not her fault. It's the unspoken expectation for her to be ALL things to ALL people. Yet healthy boundaries are one of the pillars of self-care. The Boundary Foundry™️ Course can help her set better boundaries with her time and energy, so she can get more than a nanosecond of time to herself. BUY The Course As A GIFT For Her HERE
