The Mother of the Bride Deserves Some Props! Gift Ideas to Show Appreciation for Her Hard Work and Planning
As a lot of us know, planning a wedding can be super complicated! The breaking news of the engagement is exciting, and everyone has great ideas, but when all the dust settles and it comes to planning the Big Day, things start to get even trickier with the potential for Momzilla and Bridezilla to emerge, and as Cheryl Barker, author of Mother of the Bride says, “Once Mom becomes a mother of the bride, I doubt one exists who can turn off [the] details switch and get a solid night’s sleep.” Well, Mom has been working, and stressing, and accommodating, and planning, and spending, so it’s time she gets her flowers. Or jewelry. Or some pampering. Or . . . let’s get to it—we have ideas.
Some Personalized Bling
Get her a piece of customized jewelry! You could go for a necklace, a bracelet, or a pair of earrings that she can wear on the wedding day and beyond. A gorgeous piece containing a sweet message and/or customized with her name or initials is a special commemoration. Another great option is a personalized bracelet that includes your handwriting and message. It can complement any outfit, including the one she wears on the wedding day!
A Day at the Spa
A fantastic way to help Mom de-stress is by treating her to a spa day. Get her a gift certificate for a massage, facial, or full day at her favorite health resort. There are plenty of ways to improve her skin and rejuvenate her face, but they can take a few months to show results. Some luxurious coddling could include medical-grade skin care products, chemical peels, injectables like Botox and dermal fillers, photo facials, and body contouring treatments. These therapies are safe and effective and can help her look and feel her best on wedding day.
