Mother’s Day is an important holiday in which moms get spoiled with gifts and cards. In a show of gratitude to our mother’s unconditional love and for bringing us into the world, they deserve this day to be extra special. Here are some creative Mother’s Day Gift Ideas to show your mom love and appreciation this year.
1. Flowers for Mother’s Day
Real flowers are a traditional gift on Mother’s Day, but consider a floral gift with a difference. A golden rose for Mother’s Day represents the eternal love you hold for her all the days of your life. It is a precious gift that she can admire daily on display in her home.
You can choose other preserved roses in a range of colors which over the coming years can become a colorful bouquet representing love from over the years from her children and grandchildren, starting a family tradition and creating an heirloom piece.
2. Enjoy a Movie Night With Mom
Movie night with your mom is a great way to kick back and enjoy each other’s company. Have some of your mom’s favorite snacks ready and enjoy the evening spending time together watching what she loves. You can watch your moms’ favorite movies on Amazon or binge-watch her favorite Netflix series together.
3. DIY Spa Day at Home With Mom
All moms deserve a spa day but massages, saunas, manicures, and pedicures can be quite expensive.
Instead, create a spa day basket of goodies to gift to your mother. Include face and hair masks, and make some homemade sugar scrubs. Include your recipes in a gift basket so she can make them for herself later.
She may have some recipes from her past that she can share with you, or you might want to include her grandchildren in the making of some of the goodies as a direct thank you from them to her.
4. Bake a Cake or Make Cupcakes
If you are meeting your mother on Mother’s Day, put in an extra effort to back her favorite cake or cupcakes, including other family members in the preparation or in the decoration after the baking is done.
Be creative with your message on the cake, using her favorite quote or saying or that includes her nickname.
5. Make a Homemade Mother’s Day Card
A written note or handmade Mother’s Day card shows a level of effort and thoughtfulness that is not the same as a text message or email. It is this thoughtfulness that brings joy to our mothers.
Write from your heart to thank her for all that she has done for you, what you appreciate about her, what you have learned from her and in what ways you aspire to be like her or what she has taught you.
6. Create a Homemade Photo Album
Handmade Mother’s Day gifts are always special. Collect the best photographs of your mother that you have stored on your phone and print these out.
Create a homemade photo album and add your comments to give the date of the photograph, where it was taken, details of the occasion including the names of the other people in the photograph and your reasons for why you like the picture.
If she’s not a fan of photo albums, print some recent pictures and have them framed to place around the house.
7. Create a Digital Photo Frame
Speaking of photos, no mother even said no to a photo album. In an age where most photos are kept on mobile phones and forgotten, customize a digital photo album with your favorite memories shared with your mom over the past few years.
It is as easy as copying the pictures on an SD Micro memory card and loading them to a digital photo frame, paired with her favorite background music.
The time is now to start thinking of that “one-of-a-kind” Mother’s Day gift idea to give your Mom that she will not only love but be able to keep for years to come.
