Mother’s Day is only a couple of weeks away. Are you ready? Here are some Mother’s Day ideas to give your wife what she really wants for her special day.

Mother’s Day Ideas

Here are six things you can give your wife this Mother’s Day to give her what she really wants.


Make a point to remember and plan, especially if you’re usually a last-minute planner. Set a reminder on your phone if you need to. She’ll appreciate that you made an effort to plan something special for her. Involve the kiddos too.

Plan Everything

One of mom’s many jobs is planning for the family, and they have a lot on their plate already. Please don’t add to your wife’s list of obligations by leaving it up to her to plan the holiday meant to celebrate her.

Allow Her Sleep In

Breakfast in bed is the iconic Mother’s Day gift, but what your wife really wants not to be awakened. Even for breakfast. Let her sleep in.

Let Her Be Selfish

Moms spend their whole life putting other people’s needs first. And most of the time, they love it. Being a parent and a spouse requires sacrificial love. But, for Mother’s Day, let her be selfish. Let her spend the day however she wants while you tend to the kids’ needs.

No Expectations

As we said a few lines up, moms tend to be in charge of family planning. But on Mother’s Day, she doesn’t want to make any decisions. Give her the day off, and you handle the family plan that day.

Clean the House

Clean the house for her. Send your wife away for the day and let the kids help you clean from top to bottom. Or you could hire someone to do a one-time deep clean. She’ll love coming home to find nothing that needs to be done. And if your wife’s love language is acts of service, you’ll score massive points for cleaning the house. If it’s not, she’s sure to appreciate your effort to make her day special. Here’s a room-to-room guide to cleaning your house.

Whatever you decide to do, make sure to make this Mother’s Day something thoughtful for her. Indulge her and show her how much you appreciate all she does for you and the family.
