Well it’s that time of year again, Mother’s Day. As we are all living in crazy busy times, let’s remember to plan to spend some time this Mother’s Day with your mom, step-mom, mother-in-law or the mother figure in your life. You want to acknowledge her and all that she has done for you on this day, dedicated to her and thank her! Here are some ideas to help you!
- You know her best, what she likes and doesn’t like. Be creative! You see what she wears, if she’s crafty and what she likes to do. This is the time to think outside the box and get her something she can really use, for herself!
- Choose something that your mom wouldn’t buy for herself. Sometimes, I like to get my mom a nice spring outfit. After a long winter, it’s nice to have something bright and new to wear and it will make her feel good!
- What does your mom do for fun or relaxation? If she likes to read, get her a few new books (enclose a gift receipt) or get her a couple of magazine subscriptions (no one ever thinks of this, but I know I love getting new magazines).
- Flowers are the most popular gift. If this is all you decide to do, then go big. Get some expensive flowers (white roses) in a glass vase. Steer clear of Carnations or Lily’s, even if they like them. You want to give her something extra special and a little more expensive on this day.
- It’s the thought and effort that counts. Have a small budget? Whatever the gift, wrap it beautifully and write a thoughtful note. She will love the fact that you put in the extra thought and effort. How much should you spend? This is a hard one. Try and choose something that fits within your budget. But if you have to go over a little, isn’t she worth it?
- Don’t buy your mom something for around the house like a fry pan or crockpot, etc!!!! This is a big no no. She does not need to be reminded on her very special day, of cooking and housework…..it needs to be all about her!
Finally, the most important thing you can really give your mom is spending time with her and thanking her for all that she has done for you. I know we live in a materialistic world, so I tried to give you some points on do’s and don’ts this year!
If your mother has passed, you can still acknowledge her special day by visiting her gravesite or crematorium. I am fortunate to still have my mother, so my prayers are with you on this Mother’s Day!
