<strong>What You Didn’t Think To Ask For This Mother’s Day</strong>

Ummm I don’t see macaroni on this card. Try again kids!

Are you tired of getting the same Mother’s Day gift year in and year out. I mean yes, I like a good bubble bath as much as the next mom, BUT WHERE DOES IT END?!

Emily Martins, Market Director of Cool Moms of Howard County & Laurel, has compiled a list of the things you didn’t think to ask for this Mother’s Day! Also, it’s totally not too late. You know your husband is going to CVS at 9pm on Saturday night looking for a card and discounted Easter chocolate.

Give yourself a break from those lame daily house chores! Vacuuming, blech. Ironing, double blech. Hire a cleaning service for a one time spring cleaning, once a week, once a month, whatever your budget is!

I hate deciding what to make for dinner every night. Having a few nights a week picked for me, and ingredients delivered would make my life so much easier. Next step is getting your partner to cook it! There are also smoothie delivery boxes, breakfast delivery boxes, and snack boxes!

Again, give yourself a break! If your car is anything like mine, it’s filled with Cheerios, fruit snack wrappers, and straws from Dunkin Donuts. Finding time to take car seats out, wash them, vacuum, and clean the outside of your car is near impossible! Ask your kids or spouse to detail your car from top to bottom, inside and out. You can also take it to get professionally done!

Oh man, a whole day to do what I want! What would you do?! Sleep, binge Netflix uninterrupted, order room service, get a massage, take an hour long hot shower, the options are endless.

There are so many beverage delivery services out there! From tea and coffee, to wine and whiskey. Pick your poison! You can also ask them to invest in superior coffee equipment if you are tired of your watered down k-cups!

Not just a “let’s get family pictures taken.” I have learned that planning is the worst part of anything, so having this part off your plate seems like a dream! Ask them to book the photographer, set the date, and wear the matching outfits without a fuss, the whole shebang!

I don’t know about you, but my mom has dressers full of old pictures and videos from when we were kids. With a Legacy Box all you have to do is order a box, fill it, and ship it off! They scan and digitize everything for you.

Ask your family to hire the babysitter, set the date, book the dinner reservations, and call your friends with the details! You could even get your friends together to get their hair and makeup done beforehand with a service like GlamSquad! They come TO YOUR HOUSE so you don’t have to go to a salon for a blowout! Sorry if your night out with your hair and makeup done winds up being Chuck E Cheese. Your kids are planning it after all!

I LOVE getting cool stuff in the mail! If you haven’t tried FabFitFun and love trying new products and accessories this is the gift for you!
