We thought we would compile a few ideas for things to do with your mom for Mother's Day and a few ideas for some meaningful gifts that won't break the bank!
Sometimes just spending time with your mom is the perfect gift. Flowers are beautiful but most moms just want their babies back, so be nice and hang out with her!
- Have Happy Hour with your mom! When was the last time you and your mom went out and got a drink together? Find somewhere that has a pretty view or nice ambiance!
- Go on a walk/hike, it can be a great way to catch up on your lives and spend some quite time together.
- Take a zumba, yoga, or dance class! Maybe you will find the next "thing" you do together!
Think about what your mom likes to do and plan something around that, does your mom like to garden? Maybe spend the day helping her pick out new flowers to plant. Does she like art? Find a museum to go to. Whatever her interests are, try something out with her or lend a hand on one of her current projects. Make it all about what she likes!
Remember when you were in 2nd grade and made your mom her 47th macaroni necklace, and she loved it because you made it? You can do something similar now! A little hard work and the help of Pinterest you can DIY something for your mom, minus the macaroni this time around.
Here are some of our favorite ideas
DIY a fun mug for her morning tea
Make a piece of art with painted doilies
Give the gift of wine! I feel like most mothers enjoy the grape so why not buy her a bottle she likes and put your own stamp on it. Customize the label by making something on your computer or by hand. It can be a nice personal touch to an everyday gift.

Lastly, don't forget your many others Moms in your life; your favorite Aunt, or a friend's mom that has always been there for you, or another mother figure - sending them a card is somrthing really sweet an simple that can put a smile on thier face.
