Mother's Day Gift Ideas

Mother's Day Gift Ideas

Hey Mama, I did the work to tell your partner what you really want this Mother's Day, so you don't have to. Just send him this blog link, and we'll take it from there. 


Hey Dads, looking for Mother's Day ideas? I've got you. When it comes to Mother's Day, what moms really want is to feel appreciated, understood, and like they get a reset. As a mom it can often feel like we are on a never-ending treadmill, and what we really want is a chance to reset and recharge. This could mean having some time to ourselves, a break from the usual routine, or something that helps make our days run smoother. 


If you're looking for some great ideas for Mother's Day, Poppy has got you covered! Here are five thoughtful and practical gifts and acts of service that any mom would love:

  1. Make mom breakfast: One of the best ways to start Mother's Day off right is to make her breakfast. Classic, I know. But don't forget to pick up groceries ahead of time, and get the kids involved in the process too. It's a great way to spend some quality time with the kids, give mom a chance to sleep in, and show mom that you remembered today is about her.

  2. Plan for mom to go out to lunch with her mom friends: Every mom needs some time to themselves, and what better way to do that than by going out to lunch with her friends. Organize with the other dads to watch the kids and for the moms to meet up at a cute local spot. This gives mom a chance to catch up with her friends and recharge her batteries. This could be on Mothers Day, or a day soon  52% of Poppy’s community said they’d like like a couple hours with friends on Mother’s Day. Alternate: Moms spa treatment with friends! 

  3. Hand drawn card from the kids and a hand-written card from you: It's always heartwarming to receive something handmade, and what better than a card made by the kids? Let them use their creativity to create a beautiful card for mom. And don't forget to write your own message to let her know just how much she means to you. I took a survey of my community, and 91% of moms said they’d rather have your words of affirmation in a card than a social post. Bonus points? Do both  

  4. Clean out her car: Moms are always on the go, and their cars can often be a reflection of that. Help her out by cleaning out her car, removing any unnecessary items, snack wrappers, and giving it a good clean so it is crumb free. Not only will this make her car look and smell better, but it will also help her feel more organized and less stressed. It's an awesome reset. In Poppy’s community, 52% of moms said they’d rather have their care detailed than get a spa treatment. You know your wife best—which one for her? 

  5.  Poppy diaper bag: She also probably wants a Poppy diaper bag. It's a stylish bag that any mom of toddlers or babies would love. With plenty of pockets and compartments, it's minimalist, simplified, and functional. Make sure you order with plenty of time for it to arrive. Use promo code: MothersDay23 for $20 off. Alternate: if she already has a Poppy bag, get her one of the new Poppy Straps
