Mothers day gifts don’t have to be store bought or even handmade. If you can’t afford to buy your mom a dozen perfect roses or you’re simply hopeless when it comes to crafts, there are still a lot of things you can do to make mom’s day special. If you’re trying to find something for the kids to do for their mom but you can’t actually sit through hours of arts and crafts, here are a few ideas.
The stuff mom’s been begging you to do
This can be a gift from both the kids and from you. There has to be a million things around the house that your wife’s been begging you to do and you’ve been putting them off. There are probably a thousand things she’s asked the kids to do too but they won’t do them either. It’s time to roll up your sleeves and get to work. Surprise your wife/ mom by doing anything and everything she asks you to do all through May unique weed pipes. Whether it’s organizing the sock drawer, taking out the trash or helping with the dishes, make sure you do it post pronto.
A little bit of home improvement
Whether you want to do something special for your wife or for your mom, home improvement is something that’s bound to make her happy. Fix a leaking pipe or put up some much needed shelves for her in the kitchen. Try a little landscaping in the backyard. Better yet, be her garden help for an entire week and help her dig out those weeds. May is a great time to plant something new so go out and find her something to grow and help her get started.
Something sweet and original
Flowers and chocolates are old school and candy just doesn’t feel right. You just have to get mom a nice substantial gift, try mothers day gift baskets. They’re available in all sorts of themes so pick very carefully. Be careful what brand you buy, national retailers are best and fruit is a popular theme for this holiday. Try Mothers day fruit baskets that have whole fruit or give mom something unique that she can show off to her neighbors or book club friends like a fresh fruit bouquet.
