Unique Mother's Day Gift Ideas

We make shopping for mom easy…

Moms are our heroes from day one. They give their all for their children every single day. Then, you throw a global pandemic into the mix and their superhero powers are amplified. On top of the usual working, cleaning, cooking, keeping their kids safe and more… Moms became educators, gym teachers, and activity planners.

Every day is Mother’s Day for a mom. However, this year for Mother’s Day (don’t forget, it’s May 9th!) be sure to do something extra special for your mom. We know it can be tough shopping for mom and planning something nice for her. So, we came up with a few activity ideas and a few gift ideas for Mother’s Day.

Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day

Here at Oregon Body & Bath, we’re making it really easy to shop for moms because we understand it can be hard sometimes. Moms can be so mysterious when it comes to things they love (besides their kids… that’s usually pretty obvious). We put together a few themed gift baskets that any mom would be thrilled to receive.

First, we created the Love Local Gift Basket. This basket is for the mom who loves “all things Bend”. This basket is filled to the brim with locally-made gifts. From goat milk lotion and lip balm to shower steamers and artisan tea, this basket has everything that mom needs to moisturize, rehydrate and relax on Mother’s Day. Take a closer look…

Love Local Gift Basket: This fun-filled basket contains the following locally-made products:

  1. The Bend Soap Co. Goat Milk Lotion

Next, we built the Head to Toe Gift Basket. It is for pampering mom from head to toe and she’s going to love every bit of it! Rich, luxurious lotions, hydrating soap, a buffer and foot repair, and more make this basket hard to resist. Wake mom up on Mother’s Day with this fun-filled basket and she’ll be smiling from ear to ear. Here is a closer look at the goodies…

Lastly, our most relaxing gift basket, the Lavender Lover. If your mom loves all things lavender, then this is a no-brainer. Surround mom this Mother’s Day in the calming, relaxing scent of lavender with all the goodies in this basket. From body wash and lotion to bath salts, candles and more… There is so much to love about this basket. If you’re not sure whether mom loves lavender but you know she needs a relaxing day off, this basket is still a winner. Lavender helps to soothe and calm, perfect for a busy mom on Mother’s Day.

Activity Ideas for Mother’s Day

Hopefully by now you know exactly what gift basket would suit your mom best for Mother’s Day. Now, it’s time to talk about how to make the most of your time spent with mom on her special day. Some moms might want the whole day to themselves and others might only need a few hours and would prefer to spend some time with the family. Here are a ton of fun things you can do in Bend with your mom on Mother’s Day. (Don’t worry, if you’re not in Bend, you can find something similar wherever you are!)

Active Moms on Mother’s Day

If your mom is a go-getter and loves to be outside whenever possible, get outside with her! There are a lot of amazing trails in Bend making it easy to find one that she’ll love. Hike along the river on trails between Meadow Camp and Dillon Falls. Spend time in Shevlin Park for beautiful views among the Ponderosa Pines. Head over to Sunriver with bicycles and stroll the many paths available.

This activity would pair perfectly with the Head to Toe Gift Basket because after you’re done, Mom can start to repair her hands and feet!

Serve Mom on Mother’s Day

If your mom loves to cook breakfast and dinner for the family, reverse the roles for Mother’s Day this year and serve up a decadent breakfast or dinner at home. Gather everyone in the family and give them each a role to play. And, don’t forget to clean up! Mother’s Day is all about mom not lifting a finger. After the family has enjoyed a meal together, give mom her special basket and let her have a few hours to relax. This would be a great moment to gift the Lavender Lover Gift Basket.

Take Mom Out for Mother’s Day

For moms that love to shop and walk around downtown Bend, Mother’s Day is the perfect excuse to get her out of the house and enjoy a local endeavour. Start off the day by grabbing brunch at The Lemon Tree or coffee and scone at the hidden gem that is Looney Bean.

Then, hit the shops with mom! There are so many great places in downtown Bend. If you’re looking for jewelry, our neighbors at Silverado carry unique pieces. If skincare is your go-to, Angelina’s Organic Skincare is a must-visit! Find one-of-a-kind home goods at Lone Crow Bungalow.

And of course, we’d be thrilled to have you stop by Oregon Body & Bath! We love to chat, know about your day and help you find anything you’re looking for.

Don’t forget, no matter what you get your mom on Mother’s Day or how you spend time with her, it’s the memories that she’ll be thankful for.

We hope all the mamas out there have a lovely Mother’s Day!
