Podcast Episode 255: How to Make Sure You Get What You Want for Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is right around the corner and traditionally, it’s a time to celebrate the incredible women in our lives. But amidst the flowers and heartfelt cards, there’s often a hidden burden that many mothers carry: the mental load of gifts.

It’s not just about the presents themselves, but the added responsibilities and expectations that come along with them.

We’ve all received this gift. It’s typically a sweet gift from a loved one, like a hair appointment, massage, or possibly a night out on the town.

These gifts, while thoughtful gestures, can sometimes add to a mother’s mental load.

From finding a place to store them to managing the clutter they create, the responsibilities can quickly pile up. And let’s not forget the emotional weight of feeling obligated to show gratitude, even if the gift doesn’t quite hit the mark.

This Mother’s Day, we’ve got your back! We’re going to help you break the cycle of disappointment and teach you how to communicate your true desires. Instead of dropping hints or silently hoping for the perfect gift, be upfront with your loved ones about what you really want. Whether it’s a day of pampering, quality time with family, or a simple heartfelt gesture, don’t be afraid to voice your preferences.

In this episode of the No Guilt Mom podcast you’ll learn:

  • Understanding the things that add to your mental load when it comes to receiving gifts
  • How to communicate what you truly want on Mother’s Day this year
  • The importance of allowing your partner to carry the planning responsibilities so you can sit back and enjoy the day
  • Breaking free from the guilt that many Moms feel when it comes to communicating their needs
