Growing up, Mom woke us up every morning to the smell of fresh breakfast while making sure we were prepared for the day’s hurdles. While at college, Mom sent care packages full of healthy foods to make sure we weren’t completely living off of pizza and cookies. After moving out and starting our own family, Mom called every day to share advice and wisdom while planning new ways to surprise and spoil the grandkids.
Now that it’s Mom’s special day, wow her with gifts and sentiments she truly deserves for being the amazing Mom, woman, and friend she is and always was. What better way to spread the love than by showering her with her favorite sweet treat in the world? If you haven’t guessed, we’re talking about chocolate! While a two-pound chocolate tower oozing with decadence is always fool-proof, this year take your gifting above and beyond by pairing your traditional chocolate gifts with one of these not-so-traditional chocolate Mother’s Day gift ideas.
Creative and Sweet Chocolate Ideas:
Fill the Air with Chocolate Flair
Ensure the home smells like intoxicating chocolate when Mom steps through the door. Some ideas for making your home smell like chocolate include baking a chocolaty treat, lighting a chocolate scented candle, or adding some chocolate essential oil to a humidifier or potpourri.
