Increasingly, people report that they derive more satisfaction from experiences than they do material objects. This Mother’s Day, why not make Mom happy by giving her the gift of a meaningful Mother’s Day experience rather than some boxed-up nonsense anyone could have purchased? If creatively conceived, your gift need not break the bank, either!

Here are 5 unique Mother’s Day gifts you can give or share with your mom on her very special afternoon. 

For the Music-Loving Mom

If your mom is a music fan, a great gift idea is concert tickets for a local event (check these Phoenix concerts for ideas). You could plan to go with her, give her two tickets for a date night with Pops, or grab a bunch of tickets so she can celebrate the day with friends.

To help mom get in the groove before her concert, consider purchasing her a subscription to a satellite radio service, such as SiriusXM. Many of the new Hondas we sell at Valley Honda Dealers include optional satellite radio, but if she’s already got her own car, a subscription is your best bet. You can even surprise her by setting up her soon-to-be-favorite radio stations while she’s still in bed on May 13!

For the Outdoorsy Mom

If your mom loves the outdoors, what could be better than a road trip to a favorite nature destination on Mother’s Day? Joining mom for a hike not only provides you both with a good workout, but it gives you a challenge you can conquer together. Take a peek at some of the best Phoenix nature trails if she doesn’t already have one picked out.

Help Mom enjoy the outdoors even more with a new roof rack for her Honda SUV. These convenient roof racks and tents will make setting up and breaking down camp as simple as possible, while also enabling her to spend more time hiking and less time wrestling with her tent. For more information on the best tent options for your mom, ask someone from our Phoenix Honda dealerships or check out this Popular Mechanics article.

For the Mom Who Needs Pampering

All moms could use a little pampering in May, which means you should research the best Phoenix spa packages for Mother’s Day. A day at the spa is a great way to help her relax and feel special. There are massages, mud baths, pedicures—just about anything Mom could want to relieve some stress.

If you can’t afford to treat Mom to a manicure, pedicure or facial at a local Phoenix spa, consider purchasing a massaging backrest for her car. That way she can always feel pampered, even when she’s stuck in traffic on I-17.

Honda Ridgeline For the Do-It-Yourself Mom

For the Do-It-Yourself Mom

Does Mom enjoy tackling projects around the house? Working together to get the task done can be a great way to spend some productive time together. Chip in by buying her some new annuals or perennials for her garden, or help her pick out and purchase the materials she’ll need to spruce up her home.

Just load up your Honda Ridgeline with mulch, soil, and pots, and hit the ground running come Sunday morning. Even better, load up a playlist comprised of Mom’s favorite artists from yesteryear, and play it from the in-bed audio system in the Ridgeline.

For the Athletic Mom

If your mom enjoys biking or kayaking, help her get to her favorite cycling or paddling spots by purchasing a new bike rack or kayak carrier and installing it to the hood of her SUV. 

Here you’ll find a comprehensive buying guide to vehicle bike racks, though you can always get a hands-on look at some OEM Honda bike racks by visiting any of our Honda dealerships near Phoenix. Whether Mom drives an older CR-V or a new HR-V, we’re certain to have the perfect roof rack that can be gifted on Mother’s Day.

Of course, if Mom has been complaining about her car for some time, maybe it’s best to consider getting her a brand-new ride. Our Honda dealerships near Tempe have just the thing—rather, we have hundreds of “just the things” available for sale and lease, including the all-new 2018 HR-V, full-size Pilot SUV, and surprisingly spacious Honda Fit. We’re confident that a new Honda will be the perfect gift for Mom.Valley Honda Dealers logo
