Don't know what to do this Mother's Day? Don't know what to get someone who has EVERYTHING? Well, fellas you are in the right place. This is not about gift giving or buying, it's about the little things. The thoughtful things women wish for from their prince charming. In all my years counseling my clients and friends I hear what they really want from their husbands, how they want to be recognized, and pampered by their hubby's. And let's be honest here,  in a day and age when a woman can buy herself her own gifts, why not take it back to the thoughtfulness which brought you two together in the first place. Sweep her off her feet like you used to. {if you never did this guide is a MUST for you} This guide has you covered from morning to evening. You can get the kids involved as you see fit and trust me when I tell you, she'll be talking about it for the rest of the week. Get ready to be the most envied couple on the block. 

Ladies if you want your MAN to surprise you do not read further, just copy and paste the link to him via e-mail. Just know this isn't a shopping list or purchasing guide. This is a list of thoughtful things he {and the kids} can do for you on Mother's Day which takes very little to no planning. If you feel like you MUST read further only read the 1st suggestion after this.  Don't go further I tell you {you rebel you}. Just send it to him and lay back and get ready for a beautiful thoughtful day full of love, pampering & appreciation. 

Fellas, lets go......

Ladies, if you are still here... remember, just a peek. 

This is sure to surprise any awesome Mom and leave a smile on her face all day. Simply take a lipstick and write lovely sweet notes on the mirror. You can write them in the corner or cover the entire mirror with your adorning words. Have the kids get involved as well. The best part is signing your name at the end of each message, it's personalized and I'm sure very unexpected. Don't fret, I know you are no Edgar Allen Poe or Ernest Hemingway so I included a few lovely notes and messages to get you started. {excuse in advance if they are a bit cheesy} Hopefully the fact that they are written by you or the kids with lipstick will overshadow the cheesiness. Don't be afraid to switch it up and add your own flare as well.

*Note: Make sure you don't use her favorite lipstick. Writing with lipstick can actually damage it. Search for an old lipstick or simply ask her for a lipstick she hasn't used in a while. Be clever and sneaky about it if you have to. Then again, who cares if she thinks you are a cross dresser because you are asking her about make-up. {wink}

Mother's Day Songs

If it’s a warm night out, then go outside and have a picnic in the backyard, in a park or on the roof of your car. Lay underneath the stars, crack open a bottle of wine and take it back to when it was just the two of you and you didn’t have a care in the world. Too cool outside?
