While we should appreciate our mothers year-round, Mother’s Day is a special time to dote on these extra-special women.

If your wallet can handle it, here are some excellent splurge-worthy gift ideas for Mother’s Day.

Book a getaway

How often do you spend quality time with your mom? Time spent out of the house, away from the trappings of everyday life? Probably not very often. Book a weekend getaway for you and your mom in a nice hotel or vacation rental. Kick back on the beach and help her to forget about her worries.

Schedule a massage

Moms often spend so much of their time tending to others and sacrificing their own needs or wants. Pamper your mom for Mother’s Day by booking her a luxurious massage session at a nice spa. A good massage will not only give your mom deep relaxation, but it can also boost circulation and ease pain from conditions like arthritis.

Get her favourite wine

Pick up a bottle of her favourite wine or spirit, the good stuff, the kind she’ll want to sip and savour.

A Crock-Pot® or Instant Pot®

A great splurge gift for Mother’s Day is a Crock-Pot or an Instant Pot. These kitchen gadgets will be a lifesaver for your mom when it comes to quick and easy weeknight dinners and larger family meals. With a Crock-Pot, she can drop in her ingredients, head out, and come home to find her meal cooked. Instant Pots have several settings that make various dishes in a flash. Some models of Crock-Pots and Instant Pots can even be controlled via smartphone.

Order her favourite meal

Does she like dining on steak in an elegant restaurant? Maybe sushi is her favourite splurge? Or does she like indulgent desserts? Whatever meal or dining experience you know your mom loves, Mother’s Day is the perfect time to treat her to it.


A high-quality, elegantly packaged candle with a scent she’ll adore is something your mom can enjoy long after Mother’s Day.

Amazing skincare

Help mom to keep her skin radiant, no matter her age. From luxury skincare trial sets to lotions, creams, or serums, if your mom likes to pamper her skin, she’ll love testing out whatever you pick up. You can even take her to the spa for a facial.

Smart home

There are many smart home devices such as smart plugs and smart home hubs like Amazon Echo and Google Home that can help mom around the house. From setting reminders and making calls, to controlling lights and appliances remotely, a smart home device can assist her in many ways.

These are just a few ideas. You know your mom better than anyone so splurge on something you know she’ll love!
