Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

10 May

Want for Mother's Day

Mother’s Day is this Sunday… ” a celebration honoring mothers and motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society”.   Each and every day, I say thanks that I’m blessed to be a Mom to Meredith and Patrick (and Murphy)…and there isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t miss my Mom. If you are lucky enough to still have your own mother around, tell her you love her and should you want to give her a token of thanks, I’ve listed some ideas if you haven’t yet had a chance to get her a gift of appreciation…for being the very best mom ever.  Remember, your Mom is always the best Mom ever!! 🙂

Here are some ideas, that I have for Mother’s Day…and then I will present ideas from other sources.

1.  Card – home-made, store-bought…best not to send a someecard!  The kids each wrote me a letter they put in my Christmas stocking telling me why they love me.  I always have those letters with me…and will till the day I die (hopefully down the road, a bit).

2.  Plant flower pots – Meredith and Patrick did this for me last year, and I loved it…am hoping they do it again this year. 🙂

3.  Breakfast in Bed – I mean, who doesn’t like this? 🙂

4.  Take your Mom to brunch, lunch or dinner – while breakfast in bed is great, it’s also great to be treated to a meal out, so your dear mother doesn’t have to cook…unless she likes to.  This sweet mother, does not necessarily enjoy cooking.  But I’d also love a BBQ, if that was offered.

5.  Pick her favorite movie and watch it with her – My kids will be watching Brian’s Song with me…and my new favorite, Silver Linings Playbook…and perhaps with a little bit of the bubbly?  The double feature will be You’ve Got Mail.

7.  Why don’t you read her a book she always read you? – why not get your Mom sobbing by reading her, I Love you Forever? 🙂

2.  Coats – a lovely new spring jacket!

3.  Diamonds – and not of the baseball variety, either…Places like Kohl’s and JC Penney have great diamond options without you feeling like you bought the Hope Diamond
