Treat her to a spa day

For mothers that are career women,  a spa day is one of the best gifts. Career mothers usually don’t have a lot of time off to pamper themselves and do self-care. Therefore, a spa day will help to rejuvenate her and get her in a good mood.


There is a wide range of accessories such as handbags, belts, and jewellry among others that you can get for your mom as a gift. You could buy her a buy that she has been in her online shopping cart as a surprise. When gifting accessories, ensure that they align with her fashion style.

If your mom is a paintings enthusiast, there's no better way to appreciate her than by expanding her collection of paintings. You can either choose a quality painting that is not too different from what she has or you can get something different as long as it matches her taste.

Something I’ve learned recently is that comparison hurts. It only lets you fixate on where you’re lacking. Your identity is not what you do, what you can accomplish, or what you can prove. Your identity rests in the one who created you and that is the only approval you need. Choose to see the good in others and you will see the good in yourself. Seek out the positivity and let go of the rest. 

Have a happy day and spread some crazy, positive love!
