Mother’s Day is here again, but before you decide how to celebrate, we’re here to tell you a few things your Mom and/or wife won’t:
- She doesn’t want your crappy coupon books. Helping without her having to ask would be a much better gift.
- She has enough drawings, handprint art, and poorly constructed crafts to open a museum dedicated entirely to her kids.
- Flowers are pretty for a few days, but are really just more work for her since she has to keep them up or toss them out as they start shed all over the counter.
- Breakfast in bed on Mother’s Day really means: Mom wakes up to an inevitable meltdown over who gets to put the blueberries in the waffle mix, but pretends to be asleep (which she wishes she was) until her well-meaning family delivers a sticky mess directly to the sheets. Not to mention walking into the waffle batter bomb that exploded all over the kitchen and pretending not to notice.
So, now that you know what not to give her, let us help you find a Mother’s Day Gift that doesn’t involve construction paper, messy sheets, or a wasted $15 flower delivery-fee.
Although we can’t know for sure exactly what your Mom wants for Mother’s Day this year, if she’s anything like our wives and mothers, the answer is wine, cocktails, or maybe even both.
Mom’s Turn to Wine
“But Moooooom…” She’s heard it a million times and enough is enough. On Mother’s Day, there’s a strict no whining policy. Unless of course, your name is Mom, and by wine-ing you mean lounging around in leggings all day and drinking wine. Because that’s definitely happening. Bonus if you can convince the kids to shower her with praise and thoughtful homemade gifts without fighting or getting anything sticky on her… during the commercials, of course.
What kind of wine do you get for the Wonder Woman you (or your kids) call Mom? Never fear, we’ve got a few suggestions. Whether she’s into Red, White, or something in between, save yourself some stress and get it delivered to your door. With stylish gift wrap options and no delivery fees, there’s no reason not to win over Mom with a bottle of wine… or two.
Whispering Angel Rosé
Why Whispering Angel Rosé for Mother’s Day? Because the best gift you can give Mom (besides wine) is the gift of well-behaved children. This Mother’s Day, she’ll hear nothing but the whispering of her little angels while she enjoys her Whispering Angel Rosé.
Clever word play aside, Whisper Angel Rosé is cram-packed with fruity flavors, reasonably priced, and the perfect shade of pink for a Spring celebration like Mother’s Day. Let her rosé all Mother’s Day, she deserves it.
Coppola Ivory Label Cabernet Sauvignon
Showing Mom you love her doesn’t have to mean spending a lot of money. Coppola Ivory Label Cabernet Sauvignon is powerfully complex, and incredibly classy, just like Mom. Best of all, you can get it delivered to her door for less than $25!
Surprise Mom with a wine and movie night or pair it with a homemade meal she doesn’t have to cook or clean up after. Either way, you can make her Mother’s Day without breaking the bank with a bottle of Coppola Ivory Label Cabernet Sauvignon.
Veuve Clicquot Champagne
Nothing says celebration like Champagne! Celebrate Mom in style this Mother’s day with a bottle of Veuve Clicquot Champagne. The perfect Champagne for dinner, earn bonus points by pairing it with carryout from her favorite restaurant.
With Champagne delivered to your door in minutes, you can make Mother’s Day magic without ever leaving your couch. Welcome to the future, now let’s drink!
Coppola Diamond Chardonnay
Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, and Mom is no exception!
Save the earrings for her birthday, because Coppola Diamond Chardonnay is a much more valuable gift with a much more reasonable price tag.
Earrings come and go (read as:get lost by toddlers or teenagers who borrow them), but drinking wine in the bathtub without anyone bothering you is priceless. Gift the gift of relaxation with a bottle of Coppola Diamond Chardonnay.
Mumm Napa Sparkling Rosé
When you tell Mom you’re sending her Mum(m)s for Mother’s Day, she’ll probably assume you mean the beautiful Fall flower. As she ponders why you’re sending her out of season flowers, she’ll be pleasantly surprised to receive a delicious bottle of Sparkling Rosé instead. Combine it with a day to sit back, relax and pamper herself, and there’s no way you’re siblings will be able to compete. As if they ever really had a chance.
Cupcake Cabernet Sauvignon
If anyone deserves a cupcake today, it’s Mom. It’s her day, after all. But, let’s be real… What Mom could really use is an alcoholic cupcake she can enjoy after the kids are in bed.
Well, you’re in luck! Cupcake Cabernet Sauvignon is just like an alcohol infused triple berry and chocolate cupcake in a wine glass. Flavors of blackberry, ripe dark cherry, and blackcurrant blend beautifully into cocoa, tobacco, and toasted oak. Combine the silky smooth finish with a slice of homemade chocolate layer cake or a more traditional box of chocolates, and we can’t think of a sweeter way to end Mother’s Day!
Mom-tails; Like Cocktails, Only Better
When we say better, we mostly mean stronger.
Because honestly, no one’s more deserving of a strong drink than Mom. She works hard 364 days a year, 24 hours a day, so she definitely deserves to turn up on Mother’s Day. And what better way to celebrate than by making it all about her with these custom Mom-tails in her honor!
What’s better than breakfast in bed on Mother’s Day? Sleep. Seriously. And then more sleep. According to a survey of 6,000 Moms from the Today Show’s website, over 70% of Moms would prefer an extra two hours of sleep over an expensive piece of jewelry for Mother’s Day.
So this Mother’s Day skip the syrup in the sheets and let Mom sleep. Allow her to awaken to the sweet sound of silence, rather than the usual alarm clock of screaming children. Then, surprise her with her favorite homemade brunch menu and her very own Momosa!
Create Your Own Momosa
Simply combine equal parts Stella Rosa Prosecco and Orange Juice, topped off with just a splash of Grand Marnier. Garnish with fresh fruit. For stress free prep, get all the ingredients delivered to your door days in advance. Did we mention there’s no delivery fee?
Mum and Coke
I can’t remember a birthday, graduation, or wedding growing up where my Mom wasn’t sipping her signature cocktail; a rum and Diet Coke with a slice of lemon. So in her honor I’ve created a Mom-themed version of her signature cocktail, the Mum and Coke.
Create Your Own Mum and Coke
Combine 1 part The Kraken Black Spiced Rum with 3 parts Coke (or Diet, whatever Mom prefers) in a glass with ice. Stir and garnish with a lemon wedge.
If Mom’s into Vodka and likes her Martinis shaken rather than stirred, then she’s going to love the Momtini. Designed with her health in mind, the Momtini is made with real pomegranate juice, handmade, gluten-free Vodka, and a French sparkling liqueur that’s sure to make her feel special.
Create Your Own Momtini
Combine 2 oz pomegranate juice, 2 oz Tito’s Handmade Vodka, 1 oz Nuvo liqueur and a splash of lime juice in a mixing glass. Shake well and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with spiraled orange peel if you’re feeling fancy. (Original recipe from Mom’s Nite Out)
