ahensnest.com Mother's Day gift ideas 2014

Do you know a mom who loves it all? Maybe she enjoys spending some quiet time out in the garden, or tending a few backyard chickens. Perhaps, she revels in a candlelit bathtub full of scented bubbles. Or, just maybe she spends her nights yelling into her headset mic while her guild takes down an especially nasty boss in her favorite game.

Whether she loves gaming, pampering, homemaking, or everything in between — here are some of my top picks, for Mother’s Day gift ideas this year.

Relish Meal Planning //

If mom loves to spend time in the kitchen creating delicious meals for the family, she may enjoy a subscription to a meal planning service such as Relish!. This website simplifies the process of making a weekly menu by offering tried and true recipes for wonderful family meals on the table every night. Relish! utilizes fresh, healthy ingredients to offer different dishes each week. You can use the new drag and drop dashboard to create your menu, then print out a shopping list and the recipes for that week.

Relish! Meal Planning Subscription

Two of my favorite features of Relish! are the monthly and weekly features. The monthly section changes each month to give you tips and tricks on seasonal ingredients and recipes to go along with them. The weekly features instruct on new cooking techniques and general home skills that are very useful and quick to implement. I also love the special downloads, like the printable Mother’s Day menu they have features this week.

Available from www.relishrelish.com as a 3, 6 or 12-month subscription option, each gift purchase comes with a personalized card. You can also choose to send your gift subscription card as a pre-wrapped gift, bundled with a cute spatula. This is a great gift for moms who love to be (or need to be) organized in the kitchen!


Agraria’s Aromatherapy Bath Salts //

For the mom who loves to be pampered, Agraria has some gorgeous Mother’s Day gifts. From luxury bath bars, to woven crustal candles that smell amazing – each item would make a lovely gift on its own, or tucked into a basket created just for your special lady.

Agraria Mother's Day gifts

Bath Salts were received for review.

For a soothing soak, Agraria’s Aromatherapy Bath Salts will wash away Mom’s worries and stress. The large 32 ounce decorative bath salt box is filled with 2 pounds of Dead Sea bath salts that are fragranced with pure essential oils. Each container also comes with a pretty scallop shell, to use as a scoop. I can personally attest to the amazing and pleasant scent of the Lemon Verbena fragrance — just lovely!

Aromatherapy Bath Salts retail for $45.00 and are available at various boutique stores, such as Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, and online at www.AgrariaHome.com.


Gift Cards for the Gamer or Music Lover //

If mom loves gaming, indulge her in a points card to her favorite gaming website or game. Many games have cash shops or perks that mom might love to buy, but feel guilty about spending the family’s cash on. Buy her a points card so she can get that coveted flying mount or awesome cosmetic wardrobe item.

giftcard-collageOr, if music is more you Mom’s style, tuck an iTunes gift card into her greeting card or gift basket. These cards can be found in stores like Walmart, GameStop and Amazon.com — to name a few.


Just spend some time with Mom //

What do most moms want more than anything? They want some quality time with their kids — no matter how old they may be. This year, try a gift straight from the heart:

You could try stopping by mom’s on Mother’s Day morning and surprise her by making her homemade pancakes. I did this for my mom almost 12 years ago, and she still talks about it to this day ;-). Take her out to the movies and dinner — it doesn’t have to be ON Mother’s Day, if you want to avoid the holiday crowds. Visit a book or craft store, then stop and have lunch at a favorite coffee shop.

Any one of these little things will definitely make mom’s day and create wonderful memories for both of you. I wish you and your mom a very happy Mother’s Day this year!

    Such awesome ideas, it’s nearly impossible to pick a favorite. The Meal Planning service seems the most useful and practical, which is what my family and I are all about. With such a variety of health problems in our family, it’s incredibly important to plan our meals carefully and think ahead. That sounds like such an amazing service!

  67. 67
    Tabitha Klucking says

    So many awesome things! I think the meal planning would be fun to try. Meal planning gives me a weekly headache!

  68. 68

    I am a Mom but I also have a Mom. Me, I would love the headphones but because my Mom loves flowers so much and is out of state, I would love to win the Teleflora Mother’s Day Bouquets so I could surprise her. Terrible of me but I just remembered it was Mother’s day this weekend.
    Hmm, I hope my kids remembered better than I did!

    Allison Almond says

    I’m homeless living in a 78 sq ft camping trailer. Just recently did I get running water… but it is ice cold. I get to take hot showers once a week at a friends house, and I get to take a 2+ hour HOT bath once a month at another person’s house. You really don’t notice the little things in life until they are taken away from you. I also just lost my job last monday, and thankfully all of my MAY bills were paid before i was laid off, but being a single mom my budget was already tight to begin with now, I’m really scrambling to figure out June bills. Dont eve get my started on my tiny kitchen, my stove/oven doesnt work and no microwave. So i bought a small electric double burner from Wal-mart and it doesnt even get hot enough to boil a small amount of water. and I have 32+ food allergies. So i can’t have any pre-packaged foods. Even if i could but them I couldn’t cook them in the oven or nuke them in the microwave. The fridge in this trailer is broken so i took 2 mini fridges and stacked them on top of each other, and i have a deep freezer in my landlord’s garage – of while he helps himself to it all the time *one of the conditions of putting anything in his garage* so I buy large amounts of meat to basically feed his family. lastly I have cockroaches. I have fog bombed this place 6 times. I have bought lil homes for them, and used borax & sugar to lure them out so they will eat the sugar/borax mixture and then eat themselves. I also put D.E. all around the perimeter of the outside and in the nooks n crannies. Plus bait gel, and also every night I wipe down everything with a 50/50 vinegar water mixture. Making sure to put everything away and cleaned up, so they have no reason to come out and play.

    These are my reasons for the giveaway items above.. I saw MNO movie last night, and it helped me feel like i was enough even though my situation wasn’t ideal.

  70. 70

    I would love to hear the sounds from the Sol Republics headphones. The prizes look fun, I’d love to try my hand at winning :)

    I need a new pair of headphones and I love the sound of Sol Republic. The Aromatherapy Bath Salts sound so relaxing.

  72. 72

    Honestly, for myself I’d chose the Sol Repulblic headset. I LOVE to tune things out by the end of the day! LOL

  73. 73

    What a great gift guide. Lots of old & new ideas to choose from. I, myself like the garden book, but I can see giving the meal planning service to one DIL, who is finally loving cooking and the stationary to a favorite aunt of mine who still does letters the old fashioned way! thanks for a chance at a thoughtful gift package!

  74. 74

  75. 75
    Louise Brimsley says

    Well, obviously my ma and I would both prefer to Just Spend Time With Mom, but if I had to pick a physical product the Sol Republic headphones are def my pick.
