Creative Ways to Thank Mom on Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 8 is set aside to show mothers our love and appreciation. Instead of purchasing a generic card, try a few of these creative ways to say thank you:

Start Mom’s special day off with a healthy breakfast in bed:

  • Orange juice
  • 12-grain toast with raspberry preserves
  • Eggs
  • Deli ham
  • Coffee

After she’s finished her excellent meal, continue the pampering by preparing a bath with salts, candles, relaxing music, and her favorite book or magazine.  Be sure to give her a small basket with her favorite scented lotions.

Create a personalized Mother’s Day card with a family photo and heartfelt note. Shutterfly and Tiny Prints are two websites that can help!

Touching on the creative side, purchase some colorful canvas and paint. Make a lasting memory with a collage of the family’s handprints. Mom will treasure this masterpiece forever.

Cut flowers die within a week. Put together a gardening tote filled with her favorite flower seeds, tools, and gloves. She’ll enjoy her gift through spring and summer.
