Mother’s Day will be here before you know it! Let’s try to figure out how to celebrate without food. Don’t do the mindless box of chocolate or high calorie brunch again! This year, think outside the food box. Here are 5 membership gift ideas that will put a smile on your moms face without adding inches to her waist.
1. Get her a yearlong subscription to Audible Membership.
My mother recently got hooked on her Audible Membership and she loves it. An avid gardener, she can listen to her favorite mystery novels while spending endless hours weeding and digging in her yard. And now that we each have an Audible Membership, I can share books with her that I think she’ll be interested in. Rather than having to go buy a copy and then find time to read it, she can instantly download it and listen as she gardens. We recently made a pact to both learn to speak Spanish together so I sent her a great course I’ve been using while I’m on maternity leave. Now I listen while I breastfeed and she listens while she gardens and we keep track of each other’s progress. It’s multi-tasking at it’s finest! If you already have an Audible Membership, they will let you send one book for free. Test it out and see if she likes it. If she does, send her a year subscription for Mother’s Day. Unlike a box of chocolates, a year long Audible Membership is the perfect non-food gift that keeps on giving!
2. Amazon Prime membership
Why does it seem like it’s always the mother’s job to run all the family errands and do all the family shopping? This year say Happy Mother’s day by relieving your mother of her constant shopping with an Amazon Prime membership.
For just $90 per year,
your mother will have free shipping
just a click away and all products shipped “prime ” (delivered in 2 days),
including Sunday! Recently Amazon added Amazon Pantry where you can buy all of your toiletries and packaged foods.
These days there’s hardly anything I want that I can’t buy on Amazon, saving myself a trip to the store. PLUS, a prime membership also comes with a year subscription to Amazon’s online music and television streaming channel.
All for $90!!! You can’t beat it. This will be the gift that keeps on giving all year long.
3. Prep Dish
I think one of the most dreaded questions for all mothers is: “What’s for dinner?” Why not make it a little easier for her by giving your mother a year long subscription to Prep Dish. I’ve been using this program for 3 months now and I absolutely love it. It’s just $99/year
if you click here
. For that you get a weeks worth of recipes emailed to you every week.
Recipes come with a grocery list and very simple instructions
on how to prep all of the meals so that each night you only need a quick 20 minutes to get dinner ready each day.
If the year subscription is too much of a commitment, try it for just one month at just $14/month. Click here
to get started.
Make that prep dish subscription even sweeter by adding a purchase to Instacart
. You can help your mom out by eliminating the weekly chore of grocery shopping.
Additionally, if she has Prep Dish, the weekly emails come with a direct link to Instacart that automatically fills the cart with all of the ingredients she needs to make the Prep Dish meals for that week.
Think of all the time you just saved your mom! Now that’s a happy mother! Get $10 and free delivery on your first order when you click here
5. Stitch Fix
Spring is here and the warm weather always makes us want a little something new, but taking time out to go shopping is not always an option. So why not use Mother’s Day to bring the mall to your mother’s front door. For just $35/month, Stitch Fix will send her a box of clothing that she can try on in the comfort of her own home and whatever she doesn’t like she can send back in the box they send you with prepaid postage.
Anything she likes she can keep and pay for. Stitch Fix
gives you a quick survey to help identify your style then they assign a stylist to you who picks out select items for you to try. The longer you work with them the better the stylist gets at choosing the clothes that best fits you. The best part is you can start and stop your subscription whenever you want without penalty. Using the holiday to spruce up your wardrobe can be a great way to start learning the habit of how to celebrate without food. Click here to get started – STITCH FIX NOW!
All of these gifts will be a welcomed change from the traditional Mother’s Day brunch that often leaves the mom with more work and stress on her “special day”. So this year give your mother the gift of a subscription that lightens her load and gives her a true day off!
Happy Mother’s Day to all! Please share some photos of your special day. Can’t wait to hear the awesome gifts you gave mom and/or the gifts you appreciated this year if you are a mom!
