Our moms have always been there for us and always will be. They are amazing! They are always making sure we are well taken care of. Our bellies are full, our boo-boos are kissed, and we are loved. Let's make this Mother's Day special at home.
Here are some ideas that show appreciation for mom and get you extra kisses and hugs:
1. Spend Time Together
We are all so busy and distracted by our screens. We don't take enough time to connect with each other. So spend a little more time with mom. Whether it is in person or on the phone, make an effort to remain just a bit longer. Time costs nothing, but is worth more than anything.
2. Pamper Your Mom in Style
Make her feel like a queen for the day. Really go overboard on this one. Don't let her lift a finger all day. Cook her meals, clean the house, do the laundry. Make sure she gets to chose all the tv shows and movies to watch.
3. Complete a Project
Maybe she has been asking you to clean the garage for months. Or finish organizing the closet. Now is the time to show here that you have been listening and care about her wants. Just make sure it is a project she wants completed and not one you want.
4. Do Something She Likes to Do
Maybe your mother loves to work in the garden. Or she prefers to paint, sew, or make crafts. Or she prefers a hike in the woods, roller skating, or bowling Whatever her favorite thing to do is, make sure you go with her and do it.
5. Get Some Gift Cards
Maybe you can't get out and do what she likes right now. However, a gift card to her favorite place can show her that you are thinking about her. Maybe get one to her favorite restaurant, clothing store, or entertainment venue. Looking forward to doing something together in the future can be rewarding in itself.
