From dance lessons to waking up the travel bug, check out 15 Disney-inspired Mother’s Day gift ideas that will make this Mother’s Day ultra magical.
Grant 3 wishes 1 of 15
Her wish is your command. Give mom the loving gift of granting her three wishes. Just like Genie did for Aladdin, you may have some minor rules and regulations, but to give her the option to have a special Mother's Day to her liking, is a great way to show mom some love.
Host a Tea Party 2 of 15
Gather her girlfriends for a spot of tea. If you know that she's always wanted to host a tea party, make her wish come true! Gather all her favorite teas and sandwiches and host a wondrous party with her friends. Just don't be late!
Archery Lessons 3 of 15
When the movie Brave was still in the works, I had the opportunity to visit Pixar Studios and check out some of the sneak peeks the studio had to offer. One of the incentives for attending the event was to try out the sport of archery. I was awesome! We were guided by professional archers, and I absolutely loved it. If this is something that you know that special mom in your family would truly appreciate, this is definitely one gift that will be remembered for a long, long time.
Ice Skating Lessons 4 of 15
I keep seeing in the news that some parts of the U.S. are still experiencing winter like weather. If that is the case, take mom for some ice skating lessons! If you are near and ice skating rink, and you know she's always wanted to try ice skating, lace up those skates and let her give it a try!
Collection of Best Sellers 5 of 15
If the mom in your life is a bookworm, then nothing will please her more than sitting back and reading a good book. Find out what she likes and head on out to the bookstore and get her a whole collection of books from her favorite author.
Dance Lessons for Dad 6 of 15
Yes, this is a two-fer gift. Why not swoop mom off her feet and get her spouse some dance lessons? Then pay for a night out of dancing at a local hot spot. Trust me, there's nothing more than seeing the one we love break out some new dance moves. Buzz was suave when be busted out some moves for Jessie!
Carriage Ride 7 of 15
This is actually on my wish list for any occasion. A ride in a carriage will bring out the magic of the evening. Any mom will appreciate the royal ambiance that a carriage ride can bring. Just don't forget a blanket in case the weather gets a little nippy. Oh, and make sure you have her home before midnight.
Hire a Butler 8 of 15
Oh, to be waited on hand and foot. Hire a butler for the day! If your mom has always hinted that having a butler around the house would do wonders for her, hire a butler for the day! Make arrangements for the butler to spoiler her rotten. Oh, this would be an awesome gift!
Hawaiian Vacay 9 of 15
Any of the Hawaiian islands would be a lovely place on earth to spend Mother's Day. Disney's Aulani can be your one-stop vacation destination when it comes to taking mom to paradise. With activities available for the whole family, make this Mother's Day a memorable one!
Hire a Nanny 10 of 15
If a nanny is something that mom would prefer, then hire one for the week! Help a mom, who may still have little ones at home, get a little extra help with the kids by bringing home Mary Poppins! Okay, fine! You won't get the Mary Poppins, but with a little research, you can get mom a much needed gift of help.
Inspire the Travel Bug 11 of 15
If your mom has been bitten by the travel bug, then send her off on a trip to Paris, France to visit some of the city's top tourist attractions. From what I hear, the architecture of Notre Dame is very impressive any time of the year.
Hire a Personal Chef 12 of 15
Keeping the gift alongside the theme of getting mom some help, to me, there is nothing greater than having someone else do the cooking. Hire a chef for the day and let them swoon mom with her favorite culinary treats. Trust me. This is a good one!
Sushi, Anyone? 13 of 15
If exotics food and exquisite dining is what makes mom giddy, take her out for some sushi! There are many, many restaurants that offer a variety of sushi menus. Do your research and treat mom to an exotic night of caterpillar rolls, sashimi and oshi sushi.
Picnic Time 14 of 15
Spring weather can be a little tricky. If possible, take mom out for a lovely picnic! Spend the day at her favorite park and pack an incredible lunch that includes all her favorite foods. This is a simple and easy gift for mom.
The Caribbean 15 of 15
If sailing the seven seas sounds more like mom, give her the gift of the Caribbean sea! A cruise is all sorts of awesomeness. Disney's Castaway Cay in the Bahamas is a paradise for any Disney fan and the perfect way to spend Mother's Day.
