“M” is for the million things she gave me,
“O” means only that she’s growing old,
“T” is for the tears she shed to save me,
“H” is for her heart of purest gold;
“E” is for her eyes, with love-light shining,
“R” means right, and right she’ll always be,
Put them all together, they spell “MOTHER,”
A word that means the world to me.
– Howard Johnson
With Mother’s Day quickly approaching this Sunday, many of us are scrambling for gift ideas to give and/or receive. So, for all of you last-minute gift buyers like myself, we’ve taken the guessing game out of present-buying with a few ideas straight from iGnite mothers:
For the mom who needs some pampering and alone time…
A Morning at Travaasa Austin Resort Spa
A beautiful escape where everything is done for you is many moms’ idea of heaven.
Choose from an extensive menu of body treatments, facials and massages, enjoy a yoga or meditation class, and have a wonderful healthy meal prepared for you…all while surrounded by nature.
After your energizing morning at the spa, head back home for some quality family time.
For the mom who likes simplicity, outdoors and all-inclusive family fun…
A Family Day Outdoors
Plan a peaceful and calming day outdoors with a walk around the trail. Bring some scraps for the ducks, a frisbee for the park and maybe even a blanket for a picnic. Allow the family to reconnect with fresh air and free of technology!
For the mom who loves a break from cooking…
Sunday Brunch with the Family
Eliminate the need for cooking and feed the family for an entire day with a big, delicious brunch prepared by someone else. Let yourself splurge for the day and don’t worry about the health content of this meal at all — you deserve it!
