It is the most coveted tool for kitchen convenience. Baking with the kids?
The KitchenAid mixer can beat, whisk, mix, and more with over fifteen optional attachments available. When her hands are already multitasking, this tool is priceless.

Best mothers day ideas for your wife
1. Spend T.I.M.E. with her!
This is the best gift you can give to your wife on mother’s day.
Spend quality time with her with your full undivided attention without any distractions. It’s the most expensive, heartfelt, and the best gift you can give to your wife.
As you already know, time can never be replenished and bought.
2. Let her have the day off.
My wife is a stay-at-home mom. To me, being a stay-at-home parent is the most difficult job in this world. So let your wife have the day off from doing any chores at home. Give her “me time”. – Marcus
As you know, mother’s day can occur on a day you have to work. In that case, tell your wife you planned on giving her the day off from doing any household chores.
But due to work, you will fulfill this gift on a day you do not have to work. Ideally, prior to or right after mother’s day. Needless to say, let her sleep in.
3. Write her a love letter or poem.
If you do not know how to write a heartfelt letter or poem, click here.
4. Design a card with your kids for her.
If you have cards, designing a beautiful card for your wife is an awesome gift.
Your wife will love the fact that you all put in the effort to appreciate her. Plus, she will cherish the card for years to come.
5. Create a picture collage for her.
You can easily do this with your kids.
Print some of the best pictures you have taken together as a couple and as a family. And put them together into one picture frame. Then wrap it nicely for her.
Another option will be to create a picture collage of just her and your kids doing having fun together.
6. Buy her a gift card.
The gift card could be to a spa near you, her favorite clothing store, restaurant, etc.
You can also make an appointment for her to get her hair and nails done at a salon nearby.
7. An illustrated picture of her (either alone or with your kids)
This gift idea came from a breastfeeding illustration we did for Ashley recently.
All you need is a great illustrator to illustrate the picture you choose. If you are not sure of which picture to use, an awesome one will be a pregnancy, breastfeeding, or childbirth picture of your wife.
Illustrations are not cheap, but it’s one of the unique gifts you can present to your wife this mother’s day.
8. A 2-plus hour massage.
Schedule a 2-plus hour massage for your wife so she can get a wonderful massage. That being said, you can even go a step further.
Arrange everything for the massage to happen on Mother’s Day.
Communicate with her that you have a surprise event for her to attend. And that she will need to dress up and go to the place with you.
When you arrive, walk her to the massage place for her a two-plus hour massage.
9. An exciting book to read.
Buy one of her favorite books from her to-read list. If she doe does not have one, simply ask her.
As you know, there are many cookbooks out there, so buying one that your wife will actually use or needs is very important.
For example, Ashley loves reading cookbooks. However, I can’t buy any cookbook for her. I have to ask her about her top 3 cookbooks before l can buy a cookbook for her.
10. Surprise her.
If she will be working on mother’s day, surprise her with flowers (add a written poem or note) at her workplace. Then take her out to lunch.
You can also pick her up after she is done working and head straight to a dinner, mother’s day event, etc. together.
11. Enroll her in a class.
Enroll her in a class she will love based on her interests. Just make sure the class does not conflict with her schedule. Examples of classes are yoga, music, paint and sip, cooking, baking, crafts, art, etc.
Go the extra mile and buy one of the things she will need for the class.
For example, a yoga mat for her yoga class.
12. Breakfast in bed.
