Great Ideas for Mother's Day Gifts: Give Mom a Gift From the Heart
A Personal Gift For Mom
Personalize Any Gift
Let's start with personalization. Add a hand made card to any of these gifts, with your own creativity, and your own heartfelt words inside. Having trouble coming up with loving words for mom, here is some inspiration!!)
Here is what you'll need
1. Poster board
2. Magic markers
3. Construction paper ( optional)
Step 1. Cut down the poster board to the desired size, my mother wouldn't want it cut down at all :)
Step 2. Cut the colored construction paper into strips and glue onto outside of card, you can trim up any edges later.
Step 3. When the construction paper has dried, you have destined a basic layout for your card! Now all you have to do is write ( maybe paint, draw, or color for the artistically inclined!)
Just be yourself, and let your mother know how much you appreciate and love her!

Things Not to do On Mother's Day
Now you have a sentimental handmade card, filled with love, creativity, and art; along with a great gift for your mother. Here are a few pointers on what NOT to do on Mother's Day; so your gift will give the full effect.
1. Do not call your mother at midnight to wish her a Happy Mother's Day, on the same note, do not call her at 6 am either. This is her day. Let her sleep in, in fact call her the evening before to find out when she plans on getting up so there are no surprises.
2. Do not let her cook. If you are able to, cook breakfast for her. Same with lunch and dinner- treat her like a queen on this special day.
3. Do not let her run errands. This includes grocery shopping, picking up anything outside of the home ( dry cleaning, prescriptions, etc), even going to grab the newspaper.
Pamper your mother on Mother's Day. Show her she is loved and appreciated for all that she does, and all she has done in the past.
