Just mention the word “Mom,” and it’s likely to stir up memories of love, warmth and kindness. That’s why there is a day dedicated just to her, honoring all that she’s done.
Trying to decipher what she would like, however, can be a daunting task.
Experts agree, saying there is a tremendous amount of pressure to find that perfect gift, when in reality, most mothers just want to know they’re cherished and appreciated.
That’s all well and good, but does little to help you with the decision of what to get the most important woman in your life. For that, the following ideas may help you create a precious moment any mom will love on her special day:
• Give the gift of time. Anyone can pick up the phone and make a reservation at a restaurant. A real treat, however, is to scoot her out of the house for some alone time—maybe with a gift card in hand—to her favorite book or clothing store while you stay home and cook and clean. This way, she gets the best of both worlds—no chores for a day, a nice meal when she comes home and time to herself with a little walking-around money to boot.
