Mother's Day Experiences: Gift Experiences instead of the traditional flowers

Mother’s Day Experiences Instead of Gifts

There is something better to give Mom for Mother’s Day than a card, gift, or flowers. Giving Mom the chance to experience something, take an outing, go and do something without the kids, or spend some time pampering herself is the best gift ever! Here are some great ideas for Mother’s Day Experiences instead of gifts.

I always love giving the gift of an experience rather than a physical gift. I like to think of these types of gifts for my kiddos and, since Mother’s Day is coming up, I’m thinking about something unique to get for my own mom.

Another great bonus about gifting an experience is that it’s something you can get last minute from your computer, but it is still something that comes from the heart and is sure to impress and show you care.

Here are some fantastic Mother’s Day Experiences you can give or share with your own mom this Mother’s Day!

Our new house!

 

After what felt like a long wait, we finally closed on our new house and have started the renovations.

I’m so excited!

I’m trying to take as many photos as possible along the way. We completely changed everything about our first house in the 7 years that we lived here – most of it in the first month – and I wish I had taken more photos.

So, here is a photo tour of our new house!

The Magic Kingdom WDW 2017 {Day 4}

The much-anticipated day at The Magic Kingdom WDW 2017! We took it easy much of our trip and planned only the Magic Kingdom and didn’t visit any other parks this time around. We planned to get there early for the opening, hit as many rides as possible early on (without fastpasses), return midday for a rest, and go back in the evening.

Here is Day 4 of our WDW 2017 trip. You can find Day 1, Day 2 part 1, Day 2 Part 2, and Day 3 here.
