Mother’s Day is just over a week away. Are you ready?
Who in the world is like mom? So many roles, sometimes all at the same time! She’s a cheerleader, nurturer, tutor, biggest fan, disciplinarian, taxi driver, nurse and more. And have you noticed she receives very little recognition for all she does? Remember mom this Mother’s Day, on Sunday May 13th. As always, we’ve got some tricks up our sleeve to get you started.
Quality time is THE BEST gift of all. More than any gift in the world, the gift your mom will love the most is the gift of time. Go to church with her, take her to lunch, go on a family walk or hike, catch a movie. Do what comes naturally for your family; just make the time to do it.
Do you have a working mom? Give her a day of rest. Buy her a gift certificate for a massage, pedicure, manicure, or even an entire day at the spa. All moms spend so much time caring for others, a gift of self nurturing would be blissful.
Is mom the a cooking diva? Give her a gift she’ll use, and think of you each time she does! With so many kitchen gadgets on the market, find something that will make her time in the kitchen easier and remind her of you each time she gets it out – choppers, mixing bowls, grinders, a coffee press – the options are limitless and in every price range!
A simple gift is always nice; flowers, chocolate, jewelry, frames, art, coffee, tea bags, soaps, candles, a heartwarming card. It’s the little things that matter most. Depending on taste, all moms would love at least one of those items. Go bigger and place several items in a beautiful basket that can be used for other things around the house.
Is sentimental more your thing? Or perhaps it’s more mom’s thing? Really get her with this one. Choose a handmade gift that’s from the heart. Find a multi-window photo frame. Fill it with family photos old and new, along with cards and notes from years past. (You may need dad’s help with this one.) Mom now owns a treasured keepsake unique to your family.
