Finding a truly unique Mother’s Day gift is like looking for gold at the end of a rainbow.
You heard it may be out there and you search your hardest for it, but eventually you stop chasing it and just settle for flowers.
That’s part of the pressure of this holiday because you want to honor the woman who gave you life with something truly meaningful. But, the best gifts aren’t the ones being pushed on commercials. The best gifts are the ones that come from the heart.
A client of mine, Megan, shared with me her most memorable Mother’s Day gift. Her husband gave it to her when their daughter was only 2 years old.
It wasn’t jewelry nor was it flowers. It was a fish tank filled with beautiful fish.
Her husband heard her say several times in the past how as a little girl, she always asked her parents for a fish tank, but never got it.
On Mother’s Day morning, she was amazed to see a tank full of beautiful gold fish. No jewelry or expensive bag could’ve matched the impact behind that gift in the moment.
So, this Mother’s Day I want to encourage you to stretch your imagination and get creative with the gift you give mom!
Here are some great unconventional ideas for mommy this Mother’s Day. Not only are they outside of the box, but they are also perfect for the digital age we live in:
