Mother’s Day is right around the corner. Exciting for all us mamas, am I right?!!! While the flower shops have long lines and the chocolate stores are crammed, many people can’t afford the expenses of gifts such as those. And that is okay because gifts from the heart and gifts of your time are what mom really wants this Mother’s Day. I can tell you right now, I would appreciate any single one of these ideas. Hint, hint.
Breakfast in Bed– First, let mom sleep in a little late on Mother’s Day. Then, surprise her with breakfast in bed. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy. It could be something as simple as toast and coffee or a bowl of her favorite cereal.
Chores– Your mom does the household chores the other 364 days of the year, so on Mother’s Day, give her a break and do her daily chores for her. If there aren’t any daily chores to be done, perform some other chores that may be difficult for her to do that she has been putting off, like cleaning out the garage or washing the windows.
Picture Frame– Look through your photos and find a special one that features you and your mom. Then, put the picture in an empty picture frame you have lying around. Mom will love the cherished memories you two shared.
Special Place– Take mom somewhere that has special meaning to her. For instance, sit and spend time with her at the playground she always took you to when you were little. Or maybe the beach where you spent summer family vacations.
Cook- If there is a special dish that you make that your mom absolutely loves, cook it for her on Mother’s Day. Be sure you make an extra batch so she can freeze it and have it later.
Letter– Some people are better at using words to express themselves. If this sounds like you, sit down and write mom a letter. Tell her how much you appreciate the things she does for you. It doesn’t need to be a perfect letter but it is something she will likely treasure forever.
