US: Mother’s Day: A Dad’s Guide

Like many dads, you might be scratching your head about what to do to show your wife or mother how much she means to you this Mother’s Day. To give you a helping hand, we’re sharing our ‘Dad’s Guide to Mother’s Day’, which will get you in the good books and give every mom what she really wants this year.

Dads usually get it wrong

So many times, guys get it wrong. They think that what moms want is to be showered with lavish gifts and quickly rush out to buy the latest/greatest/biggest/most expensive gadget to cover the fact that they really have no idea how to properly acknowledge and reward the women in their lives on this special day.

Then you have the other end of the spectrum – the dads who don’t realize Mother’s Day is just around the corner. It sneaks up fast and before they know it, they’ve made a last-minute, half-hearted attempt to grab mom something from the grocery store or gas station…which we’re guessing is not exactly her dream come true.

Whatever category you fall into, we can help.

The Mother’s Day secret

We’ll let you in on a little secret. It’s not extravagant gifts or last-ditch attempts mom wants this Mother’s Day. What every mom wants is to feel valued and loved by the families she works so hard for every day. You can help her achieve this with a few simple strategies:

  • Do something together. It doesn’t matter if you organize a family sky-dive, share a meal together or go for a walk around the lake: the point is you’ve organized an activity (preferably one mom enjoys) where mom can be together with the ones she loves most.


  • Give mom a break. Moms are the glue that bind many families together and keep the ship sailing smoothly along its often-tumultuous course. Ask any mom what she really wants for Mother’s Day and the resounding response of “A Day Off” can be heard collectively from mothers around the globe. This Mother’s Day, grant mom her wish and take on some of the chores she does every day. Trust us, she will definitely thank you!


  • Make your gifts count. If you’re going to get mom a gift, make it a thoughtful one. There’s nothing that disappoints moms more than a present which shows you obviously don’t get her or just don’t care enough to try.

Happy Mother’s Day!
