Looking for the perfect gift this Mother’s Day? As the holiday fast approaches, you might be scrambling to plan a gift that makes the mother in your life smile–whether she’s your mom, your grandmother,  or your wife.

Well, this year we thought we’d help you think about a couple of new ideas for the perfect gift for that special someone.

The first gift we suggest is very simple, very easy to do, and shows a lot of forethought. Take the mother in your life out for a day in the park together. Maryland is full of beautiful parks, whether you choose one close to home in Severna Park or Odenton or a bigger park like Quiet Waters in Annapolis. Plan to go for a little hike with your mother and her puppy, or pack a picnic and take some time to be outside together. As everything blooms, it’s a great time to be outdoors.

If you’re looking for something a little more formal, a brunch in Annapolis is always a great choice. There are many options for brunch with your dog if you choose a spot with great outdoor dining like Rams Head. If you’re looking for something a little more formal, there are many Mother’s Day lunches that are at beautiful establishments and most likely will have plenty of mimosas!

Looking a creative gift that gives the mom in your life a little bit of a break? A day out is always a great option–whether she prefers a spa, the movie theater, or just a day on her own able to do whatever she wants, providing her the means to do so is always appreciated. Give her some movie tickets, a pass to a new gym, or a nice massage. If it’s during a time when she usually would be walking the dogs, or caring for the cats, booking Tails on Trails is a great addition to the package.

If you’re looking for something a little bit more traditional, there’s a classic gift from your childhood–a fresh, clean house! You can always take the initiative to clean the house from top to bottom. It’s a gift everyone in the family will benefit from, and in many families will be very much appreciated.  If this is your plan, don’t forget the pups in the house–they should be clean too! Pet Waggin in Annapolis is a great option for this part of the gift!

And here’s a final tip from your favorite dog walker, no matter the gift, be sure to show you were thoughtful and care about her!
