This year is literally zooming by and in just a blink, we’re already in May. You know what that means – Mother’s Day! Mother’s Day is that special day dedicated to the love and appreciation of mom. While she deserves this every single day of the year, this one day to honor her is a great opportunity to go an extra mile. Celebrated on different dates in many parts of the world, the most widely recognized date this year is 13th May. Why should you go all out for mom on this day? Not because she’s given you life or anything…but because Mothers are the salt of the earth, the genesis of creation and they deserve a few precious moments to be recognized for their contributions.
With just a few days left before the big day, if you haven’t already come up with something memorable and special, you’re not too late. There are a number of different things you can do to celebrate everything that mom means to you. It doesn’t always require a grand financial overture – sometimes the simplest things, the most heartfelt things, don’t cost an arm and a leg. Even on a limited budget, you can dazzle your mom with your thoughtfulness and attention to detail. Here are a few ideas you can consider to make this Mother’s Day an even to remember:
- Is your mom the belle of the ball? Does she love to shop and make herself and the things around her even more beautiful? Why not fuel her fancy with a new approach to a gift certificate? Grab her a bunch of e-coupons and online codes for big discounts on her favorite items from her favorite stores. For example, you can get Kohls coupons here online along with other codes for places that sell clothes, perfume, trinkets and home accessories to name a few.
- Memories are what happiness is built on and your mom probably has hundreds of them that she visits when she has a free moment to herself. Why not make her up a little package that helps her visit memory lane with more than just her thoughts? Did she have a favorite trip as a child or was there somewhere she always dreamt of going but didn’t have the time? Make a dream package – maps, trinkets from the store, tea from a nearby shop, framed pictures of the best views – she’ll be able to have a piece of her favorite memory with you right there to remind her.
- Music makes the heart smile and every mom has a collection of songs in her mind from her happiest times. Her wedding song, the most popular ditty from her high school years, the theme song to her favorite TV show – pick up some records and a record player so she can revisit the soundtrack of her life. Getting a record player is easy online and they aren’t that expensive. While an iPod may not be her cup of tea, the waxy feel of old fashioned records will give her that warm fuzzy feeling.
