Mom stayed by your side through chicken pox and teenage tantrums. She deserves her holiday. But you don’t have to spend a lot; just invest some thoughtfulness.
This Mother’s Day, show Mom your creative side (and put your digital camera to use) by snapping pics of the family for an album or scrapbook. She’ll be glad you did.
Don’t send flowers … again. Instead, send her a collection of seeds she can plant. It’s the gift that keeps on giving. And if possible, plant them with her. Future blooms will remind her of you.
If you live close by, surprise your mother with a gourmet meal. Whether it’s made from scratch or picked up from her favorite eatery, you’re sure to score points on her special day.
Give the gift of relaxation. Call a local spa and set Mom up with a manicure, pedicure, facial, or massage. She’s worth it.
