Give Mom the Un-Mother's Day She's Always Dreamed Of!

We all know the standard go-tos, handmade card, flowers, breakfast in bed. Don’t get us wrong, the gesture and thought is lovely but want to take your Mother’s Day to the next level? How to truly show the women in your life that are moms or mother figures how valued and loved they are- we have you covered (and may make you laugh with a video).

Dads tend to involve the kids in the good ole- breakfast in bed for mom. It sounds lovely, doesn’t it? In reality, kids burn toast, make something inedible and you’ll have to clean the crumbs from your bed later- not ideal! Listen up dads and kids- let mom sleep in and get the day off from ‘mom-life’.

 

Of course any mother love their offspring, but time away from them may just be the answer to a really relaxing Mother’s Day. One company capitalized on this notion in their latest marketing campaign. Kraft is offering moms $100 to pay for a babysitter on Mother's Day. Their campaign is called a time for moms enjoy a day of "No meltdowns, no diaper changes and no going to the bathroom with kids pounding on the door."

"Mother's Day is a day to celebrate Mom in all of her greatness, but we know the holiday doesn't stop the challenges of motherhood -- temper tantrums, sleepless nights and picky eaters," said Sergio Eleuterio, head of marketing for Kraft. "With Kraft Mother's Day Away, we are giving moms across the country the chance to have what they secretly really want: some time for themselves."


What better way to end a day of relaxation and being spoiled with love and self care than grabbing a book (that she's been stuck on page 25 for months), a glass of bubbly and soaking in the tub. Finishing a whole novel is a rarity for moms as they quiet time is precious and often spent sleeping. Why not subscribe to a magazine that she'll receive monthly or weekly. She’ll think of you every single month when her favourite magazine arrives in the mail.

Mama’s Perch bath bomb will release a cascade of orange, rose and ylang ylang essential oils along with skin softening sea salts and hydrating cocoa butter. Coconut milk creates a creamy frothy lather and real rose petals float subtly to the surface, truly creating an escape for mom. Light fragrance of gardenia and geraniums put the mind to ease, escape to the garden of Mama's Perch.

When it comes to Mother's Day, skip the flowers and give mom the day off from all the standard mom duties and you'll be in the good books!
