Flowers Again? 5 Things You Can Do to Make Your Mom Love You Even More

Gift for Mothers Day

It sounds like a question on Family Feud – what are the most common Mother’s Day gifts? According to Forbes.com and based upon the billions of dollars we spend on Mother’s Day presents. the number one gift is… A meal out. Could be brunch, lunch or dinner, but nearly 4 in 10 of you did just that.

But, this answer is kind of misleading. Seriously, how many of you would take your mom out to lunch or dinner and NOT give her something else? Say…jewelry, flowers, a card, or a gift card to her favorite store? Of course, you do! She’s your mom. (By the way, those last four gifts are 2 thru 5 on the Forbes most-popular-gift list.)

5 Tips to Make Your Mom Love You Even More

Well, we have a few ideas, so you can mix it up a bit and make her REALLY happy:

  1. A meal together: NO, this is different! Avoid the The Cheesecake Factory (and calories) this year and do something unique. Make her a favorite meal from her childhood. Don’t cook? Pick up a delicious meal and bring it to her house. If it’s a wonderful day outside, have a picnic. The point is to do something memorable. Take a few photos and you can make a scrapbook as a follow-up give (major bonus points).
  1. Make a scrapbook (you saw this coming): You’ve had a smartphone for years. Pick out the best photos, print them, and make your mom a scrapbook. Sprinkle in some old photos and include some handwritten quotes or a poem or two about moms. If you really want to make it special, have you and your siblings come up with the 55 (or her age) things we love about mom. Write these all over the book. You’ll be surprised how many you come up with when you start reminiscing.

Not creative? Try using the Internet and copy something.

  1. A cool, recurring gift: Get her something she’ll continue to get throughout the year to remind her to keep you in the will. Just make sure it’s something cool and on-point with things she likes to eat, wear, or do. If you’re truly a great child, you will make her a recurring gift. Now THAT’S a boss move.
  1. Something Unique: On the other hand, if you’re really lazy and just don’t care that much about Mother’s Day, at least get her something unique from Etsy or Uncommon Goods.
  1. The Activ5 portable workout device: The best thing you can give your mom this year is something that’s good for her. An Activ5 device and app for her phone has all of the above gifts all “wrapped” into one. First, you’re going to take her out to lunch anyway. Don’t cheap out on your mom; give her this too!

Second, it’s cool and recurring, because she exercises with it every day. Third, it’s going to give you ongoing photo opportunities for a scrapbook as your mom loses weight, becomes more active, and generally enjoys life more, as she uses her Activ5 to get in better shape.

Why is Activ5 the Perfect Mother’s Day Gift?

Any mom can benefit from it: Whether your mom is super active, could lose a few pounds, or maybe has a health condition, Activ5 will help her:

  • Get stronger
  • Lose weight
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Improve stamina

Gets her exercising: The CDC suggest that 80% of moms don’t get their recommended amount of exercise. Activ5 is just the thing to get her going again. Why?

  • It’s an easy to use fitness gadget
  • It calibrates to her fitness and strength levels
  • It’s safe for seniors, thanks to isometric exercises
  • The workouts are fast

But, maybe the best reason you should get an Activ5 portable workout device for your mom is that it says “I love you” better than a bouquet of flowers or a bunch of chocolate strawberries. Tell your mom that exercising is the best way to live a longer, healthier, and more productive life. We love you, mom!
