Mother's Day comes around once a year. Let Mom know how much you care and appreciate her by giving her a special, timeless gift this Mother's Day.
Flowers are a traditional gift for any occasion, but they're always great for Mother's Day. Show your mom how special you think she is by presenting her with a bouquet of flowers. Personally design your own unique flower bouquet for your special, one-of-a-kind mother! Don't forget a pretty card.
Bath Products and Candles
Remind mom how sweet she is with a gift of scented candles and soothing bath products to turn your home into a spa any time Mom needs a break. Aromatherapy candles can help mom relax on crazy days, and they're a wonderful way to freshen the whole house.
Whether she's got a toddler or a teen, most mothers need — and seldom get — a night out. Sign up Mom for a course at a local community college or adult education program: Something fun! How about an art class, an Introduction to Wine-Tasting, The Fine Art of Bellydancing, or Feng Shui?
A professionally done family portrait would top any Mom's wish list. Get the kids together for a sibling picture, or get a gift certificate to have a portrait done of the entire family, Mom included.
If Mom is a jewelry lover, pick out some pretty new bling for her. Forget pricy diamonds and opt for something personal, with charms, birthstones, or initials symbolizing each child or member of the family.
Many moms are bookworms — when they have the time. If you can afford it, an e-book reader like the Kindle and the Nook makes a great Mother's Day gift. To go along with it, offer Mom an afternoon of peace and quiet so she can catch up on some new reads.
A Pretty Tree
Most communities have garden clubs or beautification committees. Some sell trees and shrubs as a fundraiser. Buying a tree or plant for Mom, then planting it with her in the yard, is a fun activity to do with children and is a lasting tribute.
When is the last time Mom got to catch a chick flick or thriller she's been wanting to see? Getting her some movie passes or a movie theater gift card will make her day! Get Dad's help to go the extra mile: arrange a babysitter in advance so she can see a movie with Dad or one of her girlfriends soon.
Get Mom saying "Ommmm!" Yoga can help busy people (the definition of Mom!) find space for relaxation in their hectic lives. Basic yoga equipment along with a beginner's yoga DVD will do wonders for Mom's mental health.
Homemade Crafts and Gifts
Almost any mother will tell you that, more than anything, she would love a gift from the heart. A craft or other homemade gift will delight the hardworking lady you love so much! Check out ideas for simple homemade and heartwarming Mother's Day gifts.
