A Care Package: Think about things that your loved one uses on a regular basis. Useful items can be much appreciated. Consider putting together a basket of tissues, lotions, soaps, make up, favorite treats, etc.
A Homemade Gift: Consider having grandchildren paint a picture or make a collage. A homemade meal that is brought over and eaten together can be very special. An afternoon shopping or baking together can mean a lot to your loved one.
A Memory Book: Create a photo gift or small photo album of pictures of family and friends. Consider the gift of a bulletin board with pictures, cards, and important information on it.
Gift Certificate: Consider getting a gift certificate to a spa or beauty shop. Plan something special for your loved one that she normally would not treat herself to. To make it more personal, go get manicures and/or pedicures together.
A Charitable Donation: Think about making a charitable donation in the name of your loved one. Someone who is involved in a charity or has a favorite cause will especially appreciate this gift.
The Gift of Time: Spend the day with your mother or grandmother. Many people would rather receive the gift of time than anything material. Find something fun to do together and enjoy each others’ company.
The important thing to remember is that finding the perfect gift is not as important as making your loved one feel special and loved on Mother’s day.
