We all need the ideas of what to get our mom

15 Gifts For Mom For Mother's Day

Mother's Day is on Sunday. As a daughter or a son, we should show our moms how much we appreciate them. Sometimes, we do forget until the last minute to get a gift. Life gets in the way so here are some great ideas to get your mom for Mother's Day, especially if it ends up being last minute.

1. Dunkin/Starbucks Gift Card

If she never stops to get coffee in the morning or stops all the time, this saves the family some money and she gets her favorite coffee, at least for a few days.

2. Flowers

This may be a cliche gift but she will always love some flowers. It just shows her how much you appreciate her.

3. Yankee Candle

Who doesn't love candles? Make sure it is in her favorite scent though.

4. Book by favorite author

She probably does not get time to read a book so getting her one (especially close to vacation season) so she has a reason to.

5. Handmade card/gift

If moms love anything, they are things that are handmade by her favorite people on Earth that she can cherish.

6. Spa Day

For daughters, take her with you for a mani-pedi day. For a son, give her a gift certificate to a local spa or salon for her to take care of herself.

7. Jewelry

Get something nice but not super expensive. As long as it ifs from you, she will cherish it forever.

8. Movie Night

Get her a gift certificate to the movies to have her go see her favorite new movie coming out.

9. Date Night/Night Out

Every mother deserves a night with her favorite people that she never gets to spend time with. Get her a gift card to her favorite restaurant or bar and let her have a night out on you!

10. Framed Picture/Photo Shoot

Every mother loves pictures of her family and the ones she loves. Set up a photo shoot for yourself and the others in the family and get your favorite picture framed for her.

11. Store Gift Card

Maybe she has had an eye on a new outfit for work or everyday. Get her a gift card to a store she likes for her to treat herself.

12. Something she has her eyes on

Maybe last time you were at a store, she saw a new lamp for the house or something to replace what needs to be. Get it for her as a surprise!

13. Make her breakfast/lunch/dinner

I know that this is probably a cliche one that everyone does, but I can tell you she will really appreciate staying in bed and not making breakfast or not worrying about lunch or dinner.

14. Let her choose what to do

If there is something she wants to do for the day, like me and my family go to the greenhouse to get her plants, let her do it! It is her day.

15. Make the day about her!

Anything you do, make it about your mom.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
