Mother’s Day gifts and Activities

Creative ideas for Mother’s Day among presents and fun activities

Before we talk about gifts ideas and activities for Mother’s Day, what about a bit of history?

Did you know that in 1910 West Virginia was the first estate to actually celebrate, on the second Sunday of May, Mother’s Day? However, only in 1914, it became an official celebration.

Nowadays, Mother’s Day can be considered one of the most celebrated holidays around the world, although not all countries celebrate such an especial date on the same day.

And thinking of all lovely mothers, we will give you a hand to choose the best way to make a homage to yours on Mother’s Day.

Great gifts for moms can be found everywhere. Mothers like clothes, makeups, perfumes, body creams, SPA treatments. Also, they love seeing the house tidy and happy, so why not opt for some new pillows, plants and flowers that will cheer up the deco?

I know! Possibilities are so many but it’s not that easy to make the right choice. That’s why this moment of decision is so important and your deep knowledge of your mother will be necessary to guide you to the right gift.

We will give you some creative ideas for mother’s day gifts and activities to make your mom truly happy. Let’s get started?
