Do you remember those homemade cards you would make with broken crayons and construction paper? Or all of the wildflowers (or weeds?!) you would pick as a child for your mom? I can about imagine those were her favorites! While sometimes there is nothing quite like unwrapping a beautiful gift and seeing what thoughtful thing awaits inside.....the gifts that bypass our hands and descends straight into heart are those that are not things at all...
Here are some Mother's Day "gift" ideas!
1. Go for a Hike.
For the outdoorsy - active Mom, there are over 10,000 state parks throughout the 50 states! Why not embark on a fun adventure in the beautiful outdoors! You can wear our Camp + Cargo skirt, lace up your shoes and away you go!
Imagine finishing up your hike as the warm spring breeze blows, and taking a little pit stop off a trail to share a picnic lunch of peanut butter + jelly!
2. Head to the Beach.
Who doesn't love the beach!? Surprise your Mama to a day at the lake or a weekend get-a-away to the ocean! Pack your Mom's must haves + favorites (sunscreen, umbrella, towels, snacks + a good book!) in one of our Oversized Nautical Totes and gift her some fun in the sun!
3. Backyard Brunch.
Gather your favorite women and invite them over for a backyard brunch! We just love themed get togethers! Mother's Day is a great reason to celebrate all of those wonderful aunties, grandma's, cousins and friends in your life! Give your brunch a floral theme and invite everyone to wear their favorite floral patterns, like our exclusive to The Skirt Outlet, Cora Midi Dress (no longer available)! We can almost hear the laughter as you sip coffee and enjoy handed down recipes...egg bake and caramel rolls anyone?! We're there!
4. Flowers + Gift Card.
Ok, we are going real basic, but the consensus between a few of us here is...we love gifting our Mother's flowers! Whether it be potted plants, fresh-cut from the garden or beautifully arranged from the local florist or farmers market! Flowers and a gift card to her favorite place (wink-wink, The Skirt Outlet) is sure to brighten and make her day!
5. Frame a Card!
Do you ever see a card that you just LOVE and want to frame and hang in your home? We say, why not?! Some cards are just too sweet to not keep!! Write a note in the card and gift it with a frame so Mom can display it all year...until her next favorite card comes along! Enjoy this free 4x6 printable from us below!
