When mother’s day rolls around, I am always reminded at how grateful I am for my mom. Like many other people, my mom was absolutely influential in shaping my life. Sometimes I find it difficult to explain to her how grateful I am for everything she taught me. If you are anything like me, you might feel like you will never be able to repay your mom for all the wonderful things she did for you growing up.
For mother’s day, I always put in plenty of effort when creating a gift for my mother. Material things are great, but it is too easy to go to the store and buy something. It is much more meaningful when your gift to your mom on Mother’s Day is hand made with love. It is with this spirit that we offer you suggestions for Mother’s Day gifts that come straight from the heart.
1) Make your mother a collage of all the special times you have had together. You can include family vacation photos, school photos and even baby photos of yourself and your mom.
2) Write her a special letter expressing how grateful you are for her. Make sure to highlight the most important lessons she taught you and the values she instilled in you that you carry on to this day.
3) Make her a handmade card.Craft stores have a whole lot of books that teach you how to make beautiful handmade cards.
4) Cook your mother her favorite dinner and clean up after. She will appreciate the thoughtfulness of a good meal.
Any gift you get your mother, she will probably love. Make sure the gift you get her reflects the time and effort you put into it, because she put a lot of time and effort into you.
