Mother’s Day Gifts For Every Mom

Mother’s Day is coming up, and every mom deserves something she is going to love (and actually use). For all the husband’s and children that don’t know what exactly to get for your amazing wife or mother, we have complied a few different ideas together to make this Mother’s Day a breath of fresh air for everyone. We have separated the gifts into categories depending on what mom enjoys doing each and every day. There is “the active mom”, “the stylish mom”, “the outdoor mom”, and “the foodie mom.”

This mother clearly likes to sweat it out whether she’s at the gym or doing some yoga at home. There is currently a craze over FitBit’s right now, and they have come out with girly colors to keep the craze going throughout Mother’s Day. It’s also always nice to get new versions of things you have, such as a new water bottle and a new yoga mat.  Some creative home workout equipment is always a great idea for a present as well.

The Stylish Mom would be more than happy to get an item to hold all her glitz and glam such as a jewelry dish or even a jewelry armoire. A woman also can never have too many purses, so that’s always a safe bet. ALWAYS. Some type of beauty cream or wash would be lovely to any woman as well. We love to pamper ourselves, so any skin care system would work, too. This Spa Sonic Pro Skin Care System is an extremely popular mini-machine. It works wonders and would definitely be great for Mother’s Day.

Join your mom outside for Mother’s Day! If she loves spending time outdoors on the back patio, fit in to her lifestyle (at least for the day). Ask her what the backyard is missing. If she doesn’t want anything specific, an outside doormat is always a safe bet. They get dirty very quickly and need to be replaced often anyway. If she enjoys have friends over for cookouts and such, a fruit infused pitcher is a great idea. Fruit infused water is a huge deal right now, because it is both healthy and refreshing. If you find a cute decor item that goes with her current outdoor furniture, pick it up! She’ll love it, we’re sure! Last but not least, if she is a gardener, she will love anything that adds to her garden, such as cute, extra elevated garden space.

Does your mom spend all day in the kitchen cooking, baking, or meal prepping? Pick up something for her favorite room! If she doesn’t already own a KitchenAid mixer, she needs one. It is the best kitchen appliance in the world. It would be the ultimate gift for Mother’s Day. If she enjoys spending her time drinking coffee and reading magazines, a Keurig system might be in favor this year. If she already has all the appliances she could ever need, grace that room with some cute relatable decor. There are many pieces of artwork that have fun kitchen quotes that are sure to spruce up a room.

Remember to relate the present you get her to her every day life. If you know nothing about your mother (assuming you’re a teenager looking for Mother’s Day answers), simply just ask her. More than likely, she knows exactly what she would like. If no answers surface, create something for her. Mom’s always love presents that are made by hand with love.

Porch & Patio Clean Up – The Right Way

The fresh warm air of spring is here! We’re going to start migrating to our porches and patios more often now, so let’s get them tidied up. We have constructed an easy 5-step plan to making your porch and patio looks brand new. We know you’re thinking, “Can’t I just use a pressure washer?” Pressure washers will actually cause severe damage to your outside surfaces over time, especially wood. To keep them looking clean and in great condition, follow our quick, little how-to.

Sweep

Start by sweeping the entire area. Anything that gets left from the broom will stick when it gets wet and will become a much bigger pain to deal with than just sweeping.

Hose It Down: Part I

Hose down the plants on and around the area, because by doing this, it will help whatever soap gets on the plants just slide off. If you have a garden, this is a very important step.

Stains

Try to tackle stains first. Ways to take care of stains depends on the different surfaces you’re dealing with. With the right product, it should be quick, fast, and easy no matter the surface.

Deck Brush

Again depending on the type of surface, select your cleaning solution and follow the directions to dilute it. Use a deck brush, or a stiff push broom, to really create some strength. Dip it in the bucket, get the surface wet, and use some serious elbow grease.

Hose It Down: Part II

Hose down the entire area. Make sure you get all the solution off, and let it dry. Your porch and patio are complete!
