Best Mother´s Day Gifts For 50+ Moms
Mother´s Day Again!
I know, I know! It´s time again for us to celebrate Mother´s Day next month and so I thought I have to write something for this day. How I wish my mother is still alive but she passed away 7 years ago. She´s in my mind and my heart while writing this. God bless her wherever she is now in our universe. I will dedicate this hub to her knowing she would love to have these gifts I am going to write about. Well, some of these Mother´s Day gifts are personalized gifts that you too might want to give to your beloved mother. Take care of your mother, you will never know when her time ends.
As I have said, Mother´s Day is fast approaching. It will be on May 10, 2015 the second Sunday of May here in Germany. Is it the same Mother´s Day celebration in your country? As a mother for more than 30 years, material things don´t count much anymore but I would be hypocrite if I would not like some of the material things I might receive. I would start with the most gift a mother should treasure in her life. The time with her kids.
Sharing Time Together
Most Valuable Gift Ideas
1. Family Bonding
As the children are mostly away from home and have their own families, a family bonding day is a special gift sons and daughters could give to their mothers. A time they can share with their mothers and their kids. A time to tighten the family relationship within the family where the mothers are the center of attention. Mothers always value the visits of their children especially now that their grown up kids have no more time for them. At least Mother´s Day is a reason to visit their mothers. It does not matter if she has to do a lot of cooking at home for the family bonding day as long as the children will come.
2. Spending Time
Spending time with your mother by visiting her in the home for the aged and get her out of that place for at least on that Mother´s Day. Spend time with her in those places which bring back a lot of wonderful memories for her and maybe yourself too. Let her choose where she wants to go or if it is a surprise, think about the things she had done in her younger years. Things she loved most.
3. Saying "I Love You"
Don´t forget to say "I Love You" to your mother. How I wish I have said that to my mother when she was still alive. I have showed my affection but I have never said that to her and I regret that I have not done that.

Some Gift Ideas:
1. Spa Voucher
A spa voucher for a relaxing treatment like ayurvedic massage, hot stones, facials, paraffin wax treatment for her hands and feet. Of course it is fun for your mother if you go with her if you are a daughter. It´s just like mother and child bonding day.
2. Dinner with her
Having dinner with her in a restaurant of her choice after spending the afternoon with her walking in a park or watching a movie in a cinema.
3. Museum ticket
It is a good idea too when giving a gift to your mother. That is, if she is interested in arts and is fond of going to a museum.
Books for your mother to read but I think it is better if you give her a book shop voucher as a gift and she just have to go to the shop and choose the book she would like to read.
There are lots of beautiful flowers you can give her like dancing lady or phalaenopsis orchids, roses, lilacs and of course the favorite flowers your mother adores so much.
6. Concert ticket
A ticket for a classic concert or any kind of music she likes to listen.
Remember! These ideas would be a lot of fun if she is not alone. So, why not share your time and spend it with her. That would be lovely!

Tips For Giving Dinner For Mother´s Day
When planning to give a small family dinner on Mother´s Day,
- You can keep it a secret first from your mother. Your mother might help in preparing something for the dinner. Remember, it is her day and she has to relax in that day.
- Prepare the food that she would love to eat. Maybe one of her favorites.
- Don´t talk about problems on that day instead talk about something else that might ignite her interest.
- Maybe you can play her favorite game after dinner. It could be charade or something else which includes all the members of the family.
