Simple Gifts that Mom Will LOVE!

Updated on May 10, 2014


If Mom spends most of her waking hours shuttling children back and forth in her taxi, I meant car, then she will appreciate a good cleaning of that vehicle. Just like my car, I am sure that there are a few million goldfish crackers swimming around under the seats, a few homework assignments hammed in between those seats, and a few coffee spills on the front seat. Cleaning out the car and making it feel as if a child has never set foot in there will make Mom sooo happy!


It is awesome to make Mom breakfast in bed, but often, who gets stuck cleaning up? Is it Mom? I think so. On Mother's Day, not only make her all of her favorite meals, but clean up after. And that means drying and putting away as well! That is often the forgotten part.


What does mom like to do in those small moments of time where no one else is asking her to make meals and help? Does she like to read, sew, scrapbook, drink wine, etc??? Find out what she like to do and get her something related to that, or better yet, spend some time with her doing just that. The memories made are worth a lot!


One of my friends goes out to dinner with her family on the Saturday before Mother's Day, then they stop at the local flower shop and purchase all of the flowers/vegetables she loves. Then, on Sunday, they spend the day planting together. Her children look forward to it as much as she does. What a wonderful memory!


There are many books out there that can be filled in to express to Mom how much you love her, need her, and think she is special. There are all kinds of versions and lengths. Mom will love these, because they really tell her all those little things that make your relationship so special.


Get the kids to a craft store, purchase a plain box, have them use paint, markers, stickers, etc... to decorate it, and then have them fill it with little notes that tell Mom how special she is. They can add Love Coupons in there for special chores or acts that they can do for Mom, they can write a letter telling her how awesome she is, etc... The possibilities are endless. But a Box of Love is a great idea for Mom.


If you and Mom do not live close by, make her a list of dates/times that you will definitely get together for coffee/lunch/phone call, etc.... If you both put it on your calendars (in pen!), then it will happen and you can catch up on all of those little moments that fall to the wayside in our busy lives. That time spent together can never be taken away.


Make a little booklet or box of coupons with some of the suggestions below:

No WHINING for a day

Clean bedroom

Eat all the vegetables

Do the dishes

Cook dinner

Make my own lunch for school

Take care of the dog today

Any other ideas.....

Put them together in a box or booklet and give them to Mom. She can pull them out at various points during the next year and use them as she sees fit!


Go to the local craft store, purchase some wooden hearts, or circles, etc..., decorate those circles with works of love, pictures, etc..., then give to Mom. She will carry these around FOREVER! I guarantee it!

Most moms do not need lavish, expensive gifts. Often, they just want to know that they are loved, thought of, and remembered. These simple gifts will make your Mom very happy this Mother's Day.
