Mother’s Day is the time to shower the women who raised you with love and appreciation. From brunches and bouquets to spa days and breakfast in bed, there are lots of timeless ways to celebrate the moms in your life. It’s hard to go wrong with flowers, food, and pampering, but in order to create a truly special day, you can easily elevate your gift-giving with a little creative thinking. Here are some out-of-the-box Mother’s Day gift ideas that are sure to be a hit.
Gift Her a Membership
Whether Mom loves contemporary art, natural history exhibits, or being around plants and flowers, buying her a membership is a fantastic way to personalize your present. Art lovers would appreciate year-round access to the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art’s rotating exhibits, while those with a green thumb would love seeing the events and exhibits of the Denver Botanic Garden at its multiple locations throughout the Front Range.
Personalize a Monthly Subscription Box
Monthly subscriptions are a great gift for Mother’s Day, delivering personalized, thoughtful gifts long after the holiday is over. Since there are so many options, it is easy to find the right one for every mom. For example, you can take the traditional bouquet-of-flowers gift and turn it up a notch with a Flower of the Month Club membership, or find something local, like Locavore Delivery’s curated butcher and pantry boxes. The sky’s the limit with this gift option!
If your favorite maternal figures are sports lovers, consider season tickets so they can cheer on their favorite team in person. Alternatively, Broadway production buffs would appreciate a seasonal subscription to the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, which includes show tickets, discounted tickets for friends, and priority seating during the 2022 season.
Book a Private Cooking Class
You and your mom can take a cooking class together, like the Mother’s Day Brunch class offered by Food Lab in Boulder. These trendy kitchen classes are popping up everywhere, and taking a class from a pro chef is a fun way to learn something new in the kitchen while creating memories together, regardless of your current skill level.
Share a Friendship Lamp
If your mom lives far away, these thoughtful Friendship Lamps are a beautiful way to stay connected from afar. The pair of lamps are activated by touch and change color; simply touch your lamp and your mom’s lamp will turn on, indicating that you are thinking about her! Change the color to indicate mood, thoughts, or whatever else you and Mom decide to convey through color and light.
These are just a few ways to make Mother’s Day a memorable one. No matter how you celebrate Mom this year, finding the perfect present can be a snap with a little outside-the-box thinking.
