Tanner asked me the other day what I wanted to do for Mother’s Day and I honestly couldn’t think of anything besides well, a morning to myself! Lately, on the weekends, he’s been taking Rex to the river to play in the sand giving me extra time with Willow which has been both so nice to have that time with her and so relaxing. Willow still takes a morning nap so when she goes down I’ve been able to sneak in some time to read or even just cleaning the house with my earbuds in while listening to a podcast feels like such a treat! Fingers crossed I may have a quiet morning like that, a family walk, backyard picnic or al fresco grilling if I play my cards right. Also rounding up some additional gift ideas for any of the mothers in your life!
Chic Picnic Blanket
Give her the gift of backyard lounging… a chic picnic blanket (and maybe a book to pair with to complete her afternoon). St. Frank has my favorite super colorful splurge options (love this pink striped one), and another option for a save.
Ozma Lounge Set
Make the Meal
Plan a family picnic, backyard grill or order her favorite takeout–plan the meal so she doesn’t have to! Fill a picnic basket with essentials: a bottle of wine, magazines, and bites.
Flowers by Oak & Ash
Of course, flowers are always a sure bet with mom! Simple cut from the yard-style as my dad always does for my mom is in my opinion the best. Sweet and thoughtful along with a handwritten card. If you’re local, Oak & Ash is currently offering a gorgeous spring market bunch for Mother’s Day.
