Mother's Day

Not sure what to get your mom for Mother's Day? Here are some ideas to help you get started:

1. Give Mom a Break
When you think of all that your mom does for your family, it's easy to see that she could use a break! Try scheduling a babysitter so that she can have a night to herself, or taking on some of the regular chores and duties she does around the house.

Additional Suggestions:

* Rent her favorite movie
* Make dinner or order her favorite take-out

2. Pamper Her
If pampering mom is what you want to do, you have lots of options to choose from. You could give her a massage, a manicure, or a pedicure. Remember, too, that these gifts don't have to cost a lot of money. Instead of spending $50 on a spa certificate, you can pick up all of the supplies you'll need at a local dollar store. Taking the time and effort to pamper her yourself if quite an act of love!

Additional Suggestions:

* Serve her breakfast in bed
* Give her a foot rub

3. Serve Her
What can you do for your mom that would really mean a lot to her? Perhaps you could clean out her car, or make several frozen meals to have on hand for busy evenings.

Additional Suggestions:

* Print out some "I-O-U" coupons for mom
* Clean the bathroom

4. Tell Her How You Feel
Mother's Day is a perfect time to put into words all of the warm and loving feelings you have for your mom. These are the kinds of gifts that she'll treasure forever.

Additional Suggestions:

* Write a simple poem
* List all the ways your mom positively touches your life

5. Spoil Her
What are some of the things that your mom really enjoys, but just never buys for herself? Call your aunt and your grandmother, and see if you could possibly chip in together and get mom something that would really surprise her. This can be as simple as buying her a box of her favorite chocolates or the body lotion she loves but rarely buys, to pitching in together on upgrading her cell phone. Be creative and see what different ideas you come up with.

Additional Suggestions:

* Buy a one-year subscription to her favorite magazine
* Purchase concert tickets to see her favorite band or artist
