Mother’s Day is right around the corner and if you are like me, sometimes I’m stumped as to what to buy for my mother. So here’s a few ideas if you are in this predicament.
My grandmother passed away last summer and when we were cleaning out her house – a Mother’s Day Gift our family made for her was on her dresser. I was blessed to be the one who got to take it home.
It’s a memory jar.
All of the grandkids and great grandkids wrote out our favorite memories on 52 slips of paper so she could open one a week and be blessed.
As I unfolded the memories to lay them out for this post – tears flowed. My son, Alex, listened as I read each one out loud until my voice got shaky and I could no longer read…and that sweet boy teared up with me and comforted me. Family matters. Memories matter. This is the perfect way to preserve them as a Mother’s Day Gift.
Here’s 5 more gift ideas:
1.) Make a collage like this one below using the letters to spell –> M-O-M, D-A-D, G-R-A-N-D-M-A or G-R-A-N-D-P-A. We simply used poster board to draw and cut out the letters. Then we made the photos black and white so we didn’t have to have the kids in matching clothes. 😉
2.) Tickets to an event or show.
3.) A magazine subscription.
4.) Freezer meals. My sister used to fill my grandmother’s freezer with soup and home cooked meals that she could take out and warm up for dinner. Grandma loved this gift.
5.) Gift Certificates to their favorite store, restaurant, gas station, or beauty salon.
