This Mother’s Day surprise your mom, wife, or grandma by offering to buy them the floor they’ve been dreaming of. We’ve got 7 Reasons to Give New Floors for Mother’s Day — a creative gift that the woman in your life will see and appreciate every day!
1. It’s something she (most likely) wants, but would never buy herself.
If your mom is anything like mine, she is giving, generous and always thinking about ways to please everyone else. A new floor probably feels like a luxury she can only dream about, and holidays are for spoiling the people you love with gifts they would never buy for themselves.
2. It’s the perfect opportunity to get rid of old run down “kid” carpet.
Now, I’m not complaining about the wear and tear that comes with raising a family. It is truly a gift for your home to be lived in–like truly lived in, with imperfections and all, but that doesn’t mean she wants to live with a dingy floor forever. Keep the growing marks in the pantry (ya know, where you measured your height and saw yourself grow?), and give her some beautiful, sparkling new floors to truly live the next years of her life on.
3. You have a lot of options budget-wise.
I seriously doubt your mom/wife/grandmother would ever want you to go beyond your means just to make them happy, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t options! Starting with one room and using a lower cost option like laminate is still a great way to show some serious love within your budget.
4. It’s a creative idea that she won’t expect.
Are you a gift person? Have you ever taken that quiz about the 5 love languages? Mine is gifts. There is nothing better than finding the perfect, creative gift that surprises the person I’m shopping for and truly shows how much I love them. For me, this gift would say “I appreciate your hard work, and I want to validate you by showing you I care about making you feel comfortable and happy in your home.” It also validates that piece of us that loves for things to look pretty. It’s okay. We all do, and your home should be a place that makes you happy!
5. It will make cleaning easier.
Back when Facebook groups were more of a “thing”, I created a group called “I Hate Cleaning” and invited all of my friends to join. I know not everyone feels as strongly about cleaning as I do, but I also know that we all want cleaning to be simple, easy and effective. An older floor becomes harder to maintain, and more time consuming. Give her the gift of more time with her family and less time scrubbing the floor. It will make her quality of life so.much.better. Because she loves you, and even if she loves cleaning, I’m pretty sure she’d rather be spending time with you!
6. It will make the house feel more like a home.
If you’ve ever lived in a place you weren’t happy with, you know how hard it is to feel comfortable in your space. Moms have so many responsibilities at home that they (and you!) deserve to feel comfortable in their house. It should feel like a home, and somewhere they are excited about raising their family, or inviting their grown “kids” over for the holidays.
7. Because she deserves it.
