In case you didn’t know, Mother’s Day is this Sunday, May 12. That means you better let your mother know you love her, but it doesn’t have to cost a fortune to tell her. Below are five ways to let your mom know you love her that won’t break the bank or soon be forgotten.
Volunteer Your Time – This is great for teens, grownups, and even the little ones (with supervision, of course). Pledge to mom that on Mother’s Day you are there for her all day to do what she wants or needs to do. This could be as simple as helping with her garden, doing chores around the house, or just being great company as she roams the local museum. Whatever she chooses, just make sure you keep a smile on your face and put her first.
Breakfast in Bed – It’s an oldie, but one heck of a goodie. Making your mom a stellar spread that she doesn’t have to lift a finger for will start her day off just right. That means you do all the cooking and cleaning. If cooking isn’t your thing, don’t overwhelm yourself with complicated recipes – it is the thought that counts.
Get the Whole Gang Together – This might take a little more planning, but it certainly will be worth it. Do your best to get the entire family together so all the mothers in your life can celebrate together. Just keep it low-key so there is less stress and everyone can spend time reminiscing about the family and all your good times. Think pizza and home movie party! If you can’t all be in the same room, use video chats.
Arts and Crafts – No matter how old your mom gets, she still loves when you make her something. Make her a collage of photos of her children and favorite memories. Another fun gift – recreate her favorite photo of you as an adult. She will surely get a kick out of the vintage vibe. Just don’t try to fit back into your footie pajamas.
The Classics –Things are called classics for a reason. Flowers, chocolates, and cards will always make Mom smile as long as they come from the heart. But why not try out some new classics? Consider creating custom music mixes of her favorite songs, filling her kindle with the books she loves, or reliving family game night with you and her grandkids. Regardless of how you choose to celebrate your mom, just make sure you tell her “I love you, mom.” it won’t cost you a thing, but its value is enormous.
