Happy Mother's Day! I wish you a joyful time to spend with friends and family. And if you maybe forgot about it until yesterday, I've got you covered. Below, you will find some last minute ideas to treat your mother for on her special day. All of them are quick and easy, and great choice if you are time-crunched, but want to show you care.
If you live/are staying with your mother, then a great way to give thanks is by making her a special breakfast. It doesn't have to be special or fancy, she'll appreciate that you thought to do it for her. Some breakfast ideas are:
- pancakes (I saw a cute idea where you use cookie cutters to cut the word MOM out of the pancakes)
- yogurt/granola/berry parfait
-orange juice, coffee, tea
-jam and toast
-her favorite kind of egg
2. Handmade Card
Even if you haven't made your mother a card in years, it is a very cute, cheap, and easy way to tell her you love her. Plus, it is so fun to get out the ol' crayons and colored paper, and make a homemade card. If you don't have time or resources to make something homemade, there are plenty of online free card sites, such as:
- American Greetings (my personal favorite)
- 123 Greetings
- Hallmark eCards
- Blue Mountain
3. Mason Jar
Putting things in Mason Jars has been all the rave recently, and finding something to put in it can be quite easy. The jars are so versatile and work with baking mixes, small items, turning into pots, etc. As long as you have one lying around the house, there is probably something you can do with it.
Some examples include:
- brownie mix (put all the dry ingredients in the jar with a tag containing what else to put in)
- her favorite chocolate/candy
- paint it (makes a great vase or pot)
- themed (e.g: spa day, pedicure, baking cupcakes, tea time, hot cocoa, etc)
Whether it is is photos of you, your family, with your mom, etc, photos are prefect for bringing back memories. On top of that, they can be given in many different forms, for example through a scrapbook, frame, wallet, etc. Here are some ideas with how to place your photos:
- glue to inside of mason jar (works as a vase) or place inside like a memory box
- on a poster filled with other notes, memories, artwork, etc.
- in a lock necklace
- inside a book
- make a string of them with clothespins to hang in her house
5. Spend Time with Her
The best gift of all could be spending time with your mom. It doesn't have to be in person, it can be through call, Skype, or any other way of communication. What is most important is that you show her you care by wanting to spend time with her. The gift of time is often much better than an object.
I wish you the best Mother's Day, and I hope that this post made it easier for you to find a gift for your mother, or give you some inspiration for next year. Let me know down in the comments what you got your mother this year. Spend time with the people you love and have a great week!
