What does your mother want for a Mother’s Day gift? Flowers and candy are nice, and many mothers will enjoy them. However, you could make her feel really special by giving her a gift that comes from the heart, was handmade, or evokes a memory. Here are some ideas for fabulous and frugal Mother’s Day gifts.
Mother’s Day Gift Ideas
Bake Some Cookies
Who doesn’t love a plate of warm, freshly baked, chocolate chip cookies? Giving this sweet treat as a Mother’s Day gift will bring back memories from when you were little and “helped” your mother make cookies. Bring over the cookies, and your mom will probably want to share them with you. This gives you the opportunity to sit down, have some coffee, eat the cookies, and talk.
Homemade Mother’s Day Card
Anyone can pick up a Mother’s Day card at the store, stuff it into an envelope, and mail it off! It talks very little effort. Show you mom how much you love her by making a homemade Mother’s Day card. It will be a one of a kind!
All you need is a little bit of creativity and whatever art supplies are at hand. Your mom is going to love your artwork, even if it isn’t exactly “professional quality”. The homemade Mother’s Day card is an excellent idea for a gift to moms who have young children. Have the kids make cards while their mother is at work or running errands.
Have a Video Chat
Does your mother live far away from you? Set aside some time during Mother’s Day weekend to have a video chat with her. Use Skype, FaceTime, or another program that basically lets you make a “video phone call”. You might not be able to afford to travel to where your mother lives. However, it doesn’t cost anything to get online and hang out “virtually”. If your mom isn’t tech-savvy, then try a “regular” phone call instead. She will appreciate the time you spend talking with her.
Crochet a Blanket
This is an easy gift for people who know how to crochet or knit. Who taught you that skill? Chances are, it was your mother. Making a blanket for your mother shows that you are thinking of her. It also provides a concrete example that you really do listen to what she has taught you! Pick some yarn that is your mother’s favorite color (or favorite brand). This lovely Mother’s Day gift will warm her heart (and the rest of her, too)!
