Mother’s are anticipating the day of the year where their family comes together to be thankful for the one who raised them. This Mother’s Day give your favorite mama something that will make the occasion memorable. It doesn’t have to be expensive or a grand ordeal; just a little something to let them know you’re thinking of them and love them to pieces.
This year don’t just buy your loved one a bouquet, make it yourself. Will Roger’s Gardens is having a flower arrangement class on May 12th from 9am-11am. All ages are welcome so even the kiddos can get in on some arranging action. All the materials are provided to create one you can take home. Your mother will be shocked and awed when she learns you made that beautiful bouquet all by yourself.
Make a personalized book for mom on Love Book. Customize each page with illustrations, text, and characters. You choose the skin tone, hair and eyes to create your own mother and daughter or son characters. You can fill the pages with little cartoons and stories or quotes that remind you of her or tell your story. I challenge your mother not to cry.
A thoughtful gift that is priceless and meaningful is a gratitude jar. Decorate a mason jar of your choice and fill it with 365 slips of paper telling her why you are grateful for her as your mom. She will know you appreciate her every day of the year that she pulls out a slip to read before her day.
Buying her a plant doesn’t always have to mean flowers. Last year my mom wanted to decorate her garden for spring like she normally does every year but didn’t have the time or energy. So I brought the garden to her. I got her a few of her favorite potted plants like Boston Ferns and Elephant Ears. She was thrilled with her makeshift garden and it gave her house a little spruced curbside appeal before she could get around to completing her garden.
A precious gift that is a cute way to share your relationship is framed pebble art. If you are crafty then you can easily make your own with some hot glue and a few pebbles. The goal is to create portraiture out of them in the likeness of a mother and child. If you don’t have a crafting care in your body then you can find them on Etsy.
Mother’s don’t need a lot to be happy. All they need is a little affection and appreciation to make their day a little brighter. A little thoughtfulness goes a long way.
