With Mother’s Day coming up this Sunday, you may be scrambling to find the perfect way to express your appreciation and gratitude for the Mom in your life. While no gift, regardless of price, can thank her enough, there’s plenty of ways to thank the woman who helped raise you without breaking the bank. After all, it’s the thought that counts right?
Consider doing one of these five things for Mom this Mother’s Day:
Breakfast in Bed: A Mother’s Day tradition that never goes out of style. This Mother’s Day, show your thanks by waking up before her and bringing her breakfast in bed. There’s no doubt she’ll be overjoyed to spend a morning relaxing and enjoying a meal in the comfort of her own bed, and it’s a perfectly sweet way to show your gratitude.
Frame Favorites: Be prepared, this may bring on the water works! Show your mom how much you care by giving her a framed photo of you both of a special time you spent together. Or, if you’re feeling creative, take the time to hand-write a personal poem or a heart-felt letter, then frame it for her instead!
Give Her the Day Off: Flip the script and take on the Mom duties! From the moment she wakes up, give her the day to herself to enjoy and relax. Then, take on her usual tasks and tackle any chores she completes throughout the day. She’ll be moved by your thoughtful gesture and feel cherished on her special day, but most of all, she’ll enjoy a leisurely day off!
Spend the Day Together: As you grow older and your own life becomes busier, finding time to spend with mom can be a challenge. Devote this Mother’s Day to spending it with your mom doing what she likes to do. Take her to a movie, out to brunch, shopping, or just relax at home and catch up on life. Remind her how grateful you are for having her in your life, and thank her for helping make you the person you are today.
Pamper Her: Treat your mom to a spa-like experience to give her some deserved R&R. You can save money by turning your living room into an at-home resort using candles, music and a variety of lotions, oils and beauty supplies. Or, surprise her with a scheduled day of pampering at your local spa. This thoughtful idea will surely give her a Mother’s Day she won’t forget!
Thank you, moms, for all that you do! And to all of our friends and families in the communities we serve, we wish you and yours a Happy Mother’s Day!
