With Mother’s Day right around the corner, I bet you’ve seen pink-themed, floral-printed items and advertisements popping up all over. From the corner store to the department store, everyone is offering something in the way of Mother’s Day gifts. This year, why not forgo the balloons, flowers and chocolates and give your mom or mother figure a gift with more meaning and a lasting impact? Connect with the moms in your life and show them how loved and appreciated they are with the gift of quality time and an investment in their health and wellness!

Give the gift of rest and relaxation

Nothing shows a loved one you care like blocking out your schedule to spend some true quality time with them. Avoid planning any overlapping appointments, log out of social media and fight the urge to constantly be on your cell phone. Perhaps you make a whole day of celebrating your mom! Allow her to get some well-deserved beauty rest by bringing her breakfast in bed. Treat her to a spa day or bring the spa day to her with fresh beauty products, a plush robe or candles in relaxing aromas. Above anything else, she’ll appreciate the time she gets to spend with just you and your family, away from all of life’s daily demands.

Invest in her health and wellness

Moms are already radiant, but help her shine from the inside out by contributing to her overall well-being and investing in the longevity of her healthy, happy life. One suggestion is to ensure she’s getting proper nutrition to feel her best. You could take cooking classes together to learn the ins and outs of balanced meal planning or if time is limited, you could schedule a healthy meal service to be delivered to her home a couple of times a week. Make sure she’s fit for life by signing her up for a gym membership or personal training appointments. If she enjoys a slower pace, book yoga or Pilates classes and attend with her. Help her keep track of her calories, vitals and steps for the day by gifting her a smartwatch or introducing her to an app that stores all of her information in one place.

Help her maintain her radiance year-round! Showing you care about your mom’s wellness journey, as well as her healthy aging journey will win you major points and have her beaming with pride. Recommend and educate her on products, supplements and foods that promote beautiful skin and healthy aging, such as the following:

  • Skincare products rich in Vitamins A, C and E which help prevent harmful free radical cell damage that ages skin
  • Supplements like high-quality collagen beauty boosters
  • Daytime moisturizers with at least SPF 30
  • Antioxidant-rich foods like berries, carrots, spinach and citrus fruits
