Gift Thoughts for Mom on a Mother’s Day

Updated on May 11, 2013

Mothers don’t always get to be at the top list of their children’s gift list. But hey it’s Your Mother’s Day; it’s Everyone’s Mother’s Day! A flower or two won’t hurt a tight budget. Here’s a list of what other things you can give to your super Mom this special day:

A daily devotional. Just about every mother in town needs a push every morning or a quiet time alone with a book at night. A daily devotional is a welcome gift for a busy mom.

A bouquet of flowers (on a vase). You’ll love the look on her face when your mother receives this. It’s not only about the flowers (for which I bet she rarely receives any during her lifetime) but it’s about the vase as well. The moment she sees the vase, she’s seeing a lot of wonders she can do about that simple vase.

It's not only about the flowers, it's the vase as well. Mothers have ways of transforming a simple vase into a work of art at home.

Stick on notes. Instead of bringing with them huge notebooks, why not give them colorful stick on notes? They come in various shapes, hearts, diamonds, conversation-shaped, circle, etc. Write something sweet on the first page for the perfect touch.

Chocolates. Who says mothers don’t crave for sweets? Let this be the perfect alibi for her to indulge on such child-like pleasures.

Her favorite tea, coffee or milk. Don’t just buy her the drinks she loves but go as far as preparing that drink for her the whole day on Mother’s Day. It doesn’t matter if you don’t get her mix perfectly; it’s the thought that counts.

Make her like a real star that she is!

Get her to pose for a magazine cover. Make her feel like a star that she really is by making her a printable magazine cover. If you don’t know how, search the internet for online companies who do them for a fee.

Now when the budget’s real tight and somehow you can’t afford any of those things, try the ‘it-is-the-thought that counts’ style.


Clean your room. The usual daily scenario at home is that of mothers asking (and nagging) children to at least clean their own rooms. Think of it as a one-day bonus, out of the 365-days, to your mom. Go the extra mile by cleaning the whole house and taking out the garbage.

Cook her favorite meal. When was the last time you helped out in the kitchen? Give your mom a free lunch on her own kitchen and watch your efforts rewarded with lots of hugs and kisses.

Leave a note. Post a note someplace at home where she’s always at. Give it your cheesiest best; something your mother would love to remember about you.

Cook for mom! Give it your best shot of Mom's favorite meal.

Write her a poem. Ok so you’re not a poet and you can’t get any inspiration from anything or anyone. Go look for nice poems, quotes and sayings online; write them (yes with pen and paper, plus your handwriting) and leave it on your mom’s bed.

However creative you get, don’t forget to make it all sincere. If there’s something else you want, don’t do it. It’s all about you being grateful to mom, nothing else.
