Mother’s Day is almost here and, by now, we should all be familiar with the phrase, “if mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy.” Mother’s Day is the time to celebrate the special mother or influential woman in your life with a thoughtful gift or gesture that will touch her heart—and earn you extra brownie points. Carpet Advantage in Urbana, IL has compiled a Mother’s Day Gift Guide that is sure to give you creative ideas for the best Mother’s Day yet. (Pro tip: If your mom or wife tell you that they don’t want a gift this year, that’s typically not true. Get something anyway.)
While flowers may be too cliché for the special mom in your life, many mothers still love and appreciate a beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers on Mother’s Day. There are many hip new floral companies out there, so skip the grocery store flowers and think ahead. Here at Carpet Advantage, we love Farmgirl Flowers. Farmgirl flowers are ethically harvested, simply designed, and arrive in stylish burlap-wrapped bouquets. Check out their Mother’s Day Shop for shopping made easy.

DIY Gift Basket
Why doesn’t love a thoughtful gift basket with hand-selected goodies? Instead of buying a pre-made gift basket, pick up a pretty basket and fill it with items that you know your mom or wife will love. A favorite candle, new book, comfortable throw blanket, and bath salts will create an appreciated relaxation basket. Heading to the beach this summer? Include a new pair of sandals, fun beach cover-up, new wireless headphones, and a beach hat. The possibilities are endless!
For most moms, happiness truly begins and ends at home. If her home is in need of some TLC, arrange to surprise her with a fresh coat of paint or beautiful new floors from Carpet Advantage. During the Carpet Advantage’s Refresh Your Space Sale, save up to $1,000 on select flooring styles from Shaw Floors. Also, consider a gorgeous new area rug that ships directly to her home from Carpet Advantages Rugs.Shop with easy online ordering.
Experiences versus Stuff
If you’re on a tight budget, perhaps your mom or wife prefers a treasured experience versus a tangible gift. In that case, plan to treat her to a special homecooked meal. A day away hiking or sightseeing ending with a picnic will create a lasting memory for her.
Gift certificates for a massage, facial, or lesson are also good ideas.
However you opt to celebrate Mother’s Day this year, be sure to put love and thought into your Mother’s Day gift. The special woman in your life will notice the effort and remember the day for years to come. Carpet Advantage is standing by to help however we can, so just stop by our showroom today. Happy Mother’s Day from your friends at Carpet Advantage!
