Mother's Day Gift Ideas

You hear it every year. Mom telling you she doesn't need a gift to show her how much you care. This usually means you're busy the night before scavenging the grocery store aisle for a last-minute card or making a mad dash for the florist the morning of Mothers Day. Wouldn't you love to do something a little different this year? It doesn't have to mean speding a load money, either. In fact, there are some simple ways to show her you care without ever spending a dime. You just need a little time and creativity.

Clue Hunt
For something fun and interactive, make mom a Mothers Day card, but instead of presenting to her first thing in the morning or setting it on the kitchen table, hide it. That's right, hide it in an inconspicuous place. Maybe in a sock drawer or in a bathtub. Just make sure it's out of the way where mom can't see. Then, cut out squares of construction paper (or just notebook paper if you prefer) giving hints as to where the next hint can be found. Eventually the clues will lead to your card.

Construction Paper Flowers for Mother's day

You may have to use some skill for this next one, but it's more fun than real flowers and will last forever rather than a week. Get a book full of construction paper and make flowers from them. Be as creative as you'd like! They don't have to be that intricate or even that realistic. After you've made quite a few, gather them and put them in a vase to add to the look.

Scrapbook For Mother's day
This one may take a little more time and creativity, but the end result will be a huge payoff and something mom will cherish forever. Collect pictures of you and mom (preferably loose photos, don't go digging through old photo albums!) and put them into a scrapbook. You could even include a caption beneath them, or if you're feeling really creative, you could write a little poem beneath each corresponding photo just to add that special, personal touch. Mom will love it!

Mom's Day Coupons
This idea is more geared toward younger children. Tucked inside of a card, include a few homemade "coupons". They could be for various things to help mom out, such as "one free back massage" or "one free car wash". Anything to make mom's life a little easier.

There are so many things you could do for mom without spending much money, and that are more personal than a conventional Mothers Day card. Just have fun with it and be creative about it. Mom will appreciate it more than anything you could ever buy her!
