As I've been oogling over some of the Mother's Day gift guides that have come my way, I've been wondering whether or not very many men actually end up seeing them. After all, many of theses guides are found on Mom-focused blogs and websites - places my husband certainly doesn't go for gift ideas.
Not that I'm complaining. My husband is actually really awesome about making Mother's Day special! But I got to thinking that maybe Mother's Day could be a day to justify buying or doing something special for yourself....as in scheduling a massage, treating yourself to a lunch out at your favorite cafe or even buying something you are coveting from one of those gift guides!
When I treat myself, it's usually with pampering body care products, fun shoes or pretty jewelry. Want to see what I'm dreaming of this Mother's Day?
