5 Mother's Day Gifts From the Heart...
There are a couple of phrases about mom I really like… The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world and if mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy! So true on both counts. And we have to take care of mom.
5. Plan a get a way just for her
Where is somewhere she has always wanted to go to but never has the time? Book a hotel and have a fun overnight away together. As we get older, we have less time to visit with our parents, so some nice quality time would be a wonderful way to spend this May 12. Bring magazines, movies, nail polish and other fun things for your "sleepover" party with mom.
4.Give her a crafted journal
Make her a personalized journal. Use photo corners to fix a special photo of your mom , or your mom and you on the front cover. For a special touch write short blurbs of quotes about mothers, and/or expressions she likes or perhaps short blurbs of memories you've had together on part of the page.
3. Get her (or make) an at-home spa kit
Creating some homemade scrubs and bath products will help keep you on a budget and also show mom that you put in the effort to make her happy. To make her heart shaped soaps, check out this recipe and to make a homemade body scrub.
2. Spa day
Get her a certificate for a massage, a mani-pedi and any other treatments that might tickle her fancy. This is her day, so she should feel as good as possible. What better way to reward her for all her incredible hard work than to treat her to a day at the spa?
1. Make your memories into a presentation
A box of memories, a collage, a photo book, or all three of these things if you have time. Collect any photos, ticket stubs or other types of significant memorabilia (and or little figurines or objects that have symbolic significance) and put them into the box or album. Decorate the front cover with photos of your mom and you, when you were a child.
